North America Biological Safety Cabinet Market is Expected to Register a Healthy CAGR in the Forecast Period of 2019 to 2026

DRIVERS:  REGULATIONS DRIVING THE BIOLOGICAL SAFETY CABINET MARKET In laboratories, there are various gases and hazardous chemical such as chlorine, carbon monoxide, ammonia, boron trichloride, acetylene, ethylene, nitrogen, argon and others  present in air which are responsible for infectious diseases. According to 0SHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), more than 450,000 people is working in lab (U.S.). Hence, many organizations and the government have taken safety action for the people who are working the lab. Access Full Report at For instance,

  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labor has developed regulation for biological safety, refer to Title 29 of the Code of Federal.
  • BioReference Laboratories is the third largest full-service clinical diagnostic laboratory in the US, has been started using biological safety cabinet.
  • DaVita Healthcare Partners, Inc. has more than 2,250 outpatient dialysis centers, has also stated using biosafety cabinets.

As above mentioned, government regulation is one the reasons due to which biological safety cabinet market is driven. Hence, regulation and biological safety concern is responsible for growing biological safety cabinet market as biological safety cabinet can reduce the risk of infection diseases by purifying the toxic air present in the laboratories. INCREASING INFECTIOUS DISEASES IN LABORATORY Biological safety cabinet is also called microbiological safety cabinet; it is used to maintain defined biological safety level by giving protection to operator, products and environment from toxic chemicals present in the air. It has been observed that, people works in laboratory are commonly suffering from infectious diseases. For instance,

  • According to survey of Pike and Sulkin, more than 3910 laboratory workers suffering from infectious diseases due to bacteria, spores, and viruses present in the air.
  • According to Disease Control and Prevention (DCP), more than 118 cases of AFM (Acute flaccid myelitis) have confirmed.

Above data shows hazardous disease caused in laboratories. Whereas, biological safety cabinets are used to removed bacteria, spores, and viruses from the air. The biological safety cabinets have its demand in laboratories as it can protect from various diseases. Hence, increasing infectious diseases in laboratories is one of the factors for driving the market of biological safety cabinets. INCREASING NUMBER OF R&D ACTIVITIES The Biopharmaceutical and Pharmaceutical Companies are develops, manufactures and has licensed to research mostly in biology and healthcare domain. The companies have involved in research and development activities due to high product recalls. For instance,

  • In January 2019, Aurobindo Pharma has recalled 80 lots of blood pressure medicine valsartan in the US, as U.S. found cancer-causing impurity in the medicine
  • In December 2018, Mylan has recalled all batches of blood pressure medicine valsartan in US
  • In November 2018, Duncan Hines recalled more than 2 billion boxes of cake mix cause of link salmonella infection.

The Biopharmaceutical and Pharmaceutical Companies are also involved in the inspection of the biology and healthcare domain product. For proper research and development, Biopharmaceutical and Pharmaceutical Companies needs better laboratories equipped with safety features like biological safety cabinet. Due to high product recall market of Biopharmaceutical and Pharmaceutical growing. Hence, increasing number of R&D activities in biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical companies are supplementing the biological safety cabinet market. RESTRAINT HIGH COSTS The biological safety cabinets are divided into three classes, class I, class II and class II. Class I gives personnel and environmental protection, class II gives personnel, environmental protection and product protection, and class III gives all type of protection and hence it is generally installed high containment laboratories. The costs of all biological safety cabinets are very high. For instance,

  • The cost of Thermo Scientific™ 1300 Series A2 Class II, Type A2 Bio Safety Cabinets (without accessories) is about USD 13200 and approximately USD 25100 with accessories
  • The cost of Thermo Scientific™ 1357, class II (without accessories) is about USD 13,030.00
  • The cost of Thermo Scientific™ 1368 Series A2 Class II, (without accessories) is about USD 12,900.00

Above data shows the cost of the biological safety cabinets. Therefore, the cost is the one of the factors for hampering the overall market of biological safety cabinets. OPPORTUNITY RAPID GROWTH IN THE NUMBER OF BIOLOGICS DRUG Biologic drug produced from living organisms or contain components of living organisms. Biologic drugs include various ranges of products which is derived from animal, human or microorganisms by using biotechnology process. It has been observed that revenue of biologics drug growing well. For instant,

  • Humira biologic drug has earned about USD 18.2 billion in 2017
  • Rituxan biologic drug has earned more than USD 9.0 billion in 2017
  • Enbrel biologic drug has earned more than USD 7.5 billion in 2017

The above information shows biologics drug market is growing. All biologics drug is being prepared or developed in biological laboratories only. There are many toxic gases released during the research and development of the biologics drug which caused Allergic reactions, throat infection, interstitial lung disease, infectious diseases, and others. In such laboratories demand of biological safety cabinets is high, as biological safety cabinet can remove toxic gases and chemicals from the air. Hence, rapid growth in the number of biologics drug will be act as opportunity for biological safety cabinet market. CHALLENGE: ALTERNATIVES OF BIOLOGICAL SAFETY CABINETS: The biological safety cabinets are commonly used in scientific laboratories to protect health of laboratory workers, prevent exposure of laboratory personnel and maintain clean work environment. But on other hand, there are some alternative of biological safety cabinets such as

  • Compounding Aseptic Isolator (CAI) - It is used to give protection from contamination caused by harmful bacteria, viruses, or other microorganism.
  • Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolator (CACI)- It is used to give sterile environment for handling hazardous drugs and provide environment, user, product, and contamination protection from exposure to hazards.
  • Laminar flow hood- it is used to provide clean environment and protection from infectious splashes or aerosols generated by many microbiological procedures

These all above are the substitute of biological safety cabinets, these all are capable to provide protection to user and product from harmful bacteria, viruses, or other microorganism. Therefore, alternatives of biological safety cabinets are one of the challenging factors for hampering the growth of biological safety cabinet market. Market Trends:

  • On the basis of type, the market is segmented into class I, class II and class III. Further, class II market segmented into type A1, type A2, type B1, and type B2.
  • On the basis of filter, the market is segmented into high efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) and ultra-low penetration air filter (ULPA).
  • On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical companies, diagnostic and testing laboratories, academic & research institutions, industrial and others.
