Biological Safety Cabinets Market Growth & Trends

The global biological safety cabinets market size is expected to reach USD 282.1 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.5%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Technological advancements due to a rise in laboratory procedures performed that play a crucial role in the safety of personnel, product, and environment, have propelled the market growth. The introduction of smart biosafety cabinets, such as PureLogic+ manufactured by Labconco Inc., with new features and adjustable accessories is playing a crucial role in the growth of the market.

To improve the safety, efficacy, and maintenance, NCBI launched a biological safety cabinet certification program in 2016, which certifies the design, construction, performance, and field parameters of the cabinets. There are various initiatives like the biosafety management programs taken up by the government and private companies that include complete investigation of the cabinets.

Factors like the favorable regulations, increasing prevalence of communicable diseases and rising number of pharmaceutical companies and their R&D activities are anticipated to boost the market growth. However, high product costs and introduction of alternative containment cabinets like the compounding isolators are likely to restrain the market growth.
