Report ID: GMI4250
Environmental Test Chambers Market size is expected to grow significantly over the forecast timeline due to increasing requirement of monitoring effects of various environmental stress factors such as temperature, vibrations & humidity, and favorable government initiatives. The demand for environmental chambers is increasing in several industries, such as pharmaceutics, food, and cosmetics, to comply with rules established by international regulatory agencies such as World Health Organization (WHO) and Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). The increasing demand for environmental test chambers in biology and microbiology to monitor the effects of light, humidity & temperature on the growth of plants, algae, viruses, insects, and small animals will further surge market growth. The growing adoption of food safety and quality assurance mechanisms such as Total Quality Management (TQM) that includes ISO 9000, ISO 22000, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP), and Good Hygienic Practices (GHP) by the food processing industry will result in environmental test chambers market growth.
An environmental test chamber is used to study products in applications such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, solar cell, medical, industrial, and consumer research. Environmental test chambers enable the user to test and verify the effects of specified environmental conditions on biological products, industrial products, materials, electronic devices, and components to ensure safety and reliability. It gives climatic information regarding products such as electromagnetic radiation, moisture in the form of relative humidity or rain, salt spraying, sunlight exposure/UV degradation, temperature set-point (or variations), vacuum, vibration, and weathering. The demand for temperature and humidity environmental chambers is comparatively higher as manufacturers majorly produce standardized or catalog product and optimization in usage for testing success or failure of a product in various industrial fields such as pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
North America is expected to show rapid growth in the environmental test chambers market due to the accelerating pharmaceutical and food industries and supportive government regulations. The market players operating in this region are strengthening their businesses by acquiring supplier companies of sub-products required for environmental test chambers. For instance, in January 2018, Venturedyne, Ltd. (Thermotron Industries) acquired Lakewood Fab Tech, a manufacturer of sheet metal required in the production of environmental test chambers.
APAC is expected to hold a significant share in the environmental test chambers market over the forecast period due to favorable government initiatives and regulations in Asian countries including Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, India, and China. For instance, in May 2019, India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) announced that the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has invested approximately USD 72.3 million to fortify the food testing infrastructure in India, upgrading 59 existing food testing laboratories and setting up around 62 new mobile testing labs. The Government has also announced a scheme for Human Resource Development (HRD) under the national mission on food processing to make advancements in infrastructural facilities for food processing degree/diploma courses, entrepreneurship development program, and food processing training centers. Increasing government investments in related industrial sectors, such as aerospace, will accelerate the demand for testing equipment in the aerospace industry. For instance, in January 2019, the Chinese government plans to expand its fixed-asset investment in the civil aviation sector to approximately USD 12.41 billion in 2019.
The companies operating in the environmental test chambers market are involved in new product development to enhance the quality and reliability of the existing product. For instance, in June 2018, Binder introduced BINDER cell & module test chambers to evaluate aging and performance tests with enhanced safety level according to Eucar/Hazard Level 4 specifications and optimized application convenience. In June 2018, Memmert introduced two temperature control appliances, ICHeco climate chamber and ICPeco compressor-cooled incubator with climate-neutral CO2 as the refrigerant (R744) for ACHEMA 2018. These appliances are more efficient and reliable than appliances cooled with fluorinated greenhouse gases.
The major players are acquiring other players to increase their services offerings and global expansion. For instance, in January 2016, ESPEC CORP. acquired Qualmark Corporation to assist in manufacturing, sales, and after-sales services for Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screen (HASS) environmental test chambers in North America.
