Clean-in-place (CIP) is a method that is used to clean the internal surfaces of production equipment machinery used in various industries without dismantling or disassembling the machinery or equipment. CIP is used to clean the inside of pipes, vessels, process equipment, filters and associated fittings. CIP is a very important and highly advantageous for industries that require regular internal cleaning of their equipment and machinery. CIP is very important for industries that require strict maintenance of high level of hygiene such as the dairy, food and beverage, processed foods, brewery, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. The key benefit of using CIP is that the cleaning is less labour-intensive, more easily repeatable and faster. The use of CIP helps to eliminate the risk of chemical exposure for labourers. Continuous improvements in CIP has helped the products to evolve and include fully automated systems with valves, sensors, specially designed spray nozzles, heat exchangers, programmable logic controllers, data acquisition and other such systems. However, manually operated CIP systems are still in use today. Chemical solutions, which may be acidic, alkaline in nature or sometimes both, are used to eliminate contaminants, pathogen or product residues from the equipment or machinery. Acid cleaning detergents act as emulsifiers and work by dissolving the proteins and also act as bactericides. The most commonly used cleaning substance is sodium hydroxide (Soda) and some commonly used acids are nitric acid and phosphoric acid. The chemical solutions are then rinsed out with water. Depending on the design of the CIP system in use, the chemical solutions may flow back to a reservoir for re-use or to be drained out immediately after they have been used. Proper removal of the chemical residues is important after the CIP process. Since the cleaning process is depends on the various different types of soil and the geometry of the machinery or equipment, the development of CIP solutions and cleaning programs are based on the various specific requirements.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • COVID-19 pandemic has forced many companies including manufacturers and service providers in the HVAC market to halt their business operations to comply with new government rules and regulations. This halt in operations directly impacts the revenue flow of the market players and thereby the global HVAC market. 
  • Moreover, research scientists are unable to rule out the possibility of spread of coronavirus through heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. 
  • Consumers around the world are confused whether HVAC air filtration systems can protect them from COVID-19 exposure. 
  • Some systems like germicidal wavelength UV fixtures were capable of filtering air in previous cases of SARS and MERS viruses but the same cannot be scientifically claimed for COVID-19, as research is still ongoing.
  • Installation and servicing operations would be impeded as contact prevention norms reduce the number of orders that can be handled per day by HVAC companies.
  • Therefore, the Clean-in-Place  market market is expected to get negatively affected in 2020. 

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, Opportunities, Restraints and Impact Analysis

Rising global urbanisation, population and the increase in disposable income of the averaged consumer are factors that are expected to help the global clean-in-place market grow. The aforementioned factors have led to the growth of the global food and beverage, pharmaceutical, food processing, chemical and other industries. Globally the consumption of processed food, dairy products, beverages, and pharma products, has increased which, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the global CIP market. Before the adoption of CIP, closed production equipment and machinery and related systems required disassembly or dismantling for them to be cleaned manually. CIP systems thus help save time and labour costs and also reduce the risk of exposure to harmful chemicals. CIP systems play an important role in the food industry because it is very important to maintain hygiene and keep machinery and equipment clean. Various components of the industrial equipment used in the food & beverages production process require frequent cleaning and sanitization to remove residue and ensure that hygiene and food safety standards are being met. The major restraint for the global clean-in-place market is the high cost of operation. The opportunity for growth of the global clean-in-place market comes from the stringent regulations and food safety and hygiene standards imposed by various governments and international bodies upon the global food & beverage and food processing industries.

The global clean-in-place market trends are as follows:

Growth of global food & beverage industry with rising population, urbanisation and disposable income around the world

According to data from the United Nations (U.N), more than 54% of global population is living in urban areas. Due to the factors of growing population, urbanisation and increased standard of living of consumers around the world, the global clean-in-place market is expected to expand. These factors are expected to aid the global clean-in-place market grow as the growth of the global food & beverage, food processing and pharmaceutical industries go hand in hand with growth of urbanisation. With rising disposable income, consumers are increasingly looking for increased comfort in their lifestyles. The food & beverages and food production industries are expected to grow globally due to the increased consumption trends as a result of the growing popularity of online food service and delivery platforms. The global rise in disposable income for the average consumer also gives people the opportunity to manage their busy work lives as they can reduce the time spent and the hassle of cooking food for themselves by eating at restaurants or ordering through food delivery applications. Ready to cook packaged food is also growing in popularity globally. Cleaning in Place is very important to the global food & beverage industry as it helps reduce labour costs, cost of cleaning chemicals and water consumption. Safety operators in the production plants are not required to manually clean the production equipment as CIP systems can clean difficult areas very easily with automated operations. This minimizes down time in the production cycle and saves manpower. Recycling of cleaning solutions and rinse water helps to reduce cleaning costs. Growing awareness regarding waste management and waste disposal in the global food & beverage industry is a major driver for the global clean-in-place market. These factors are expected to help grow the demand of clean-in-place systems and practises in the global food and beverages industry and thus help the global clean-in-place market grow.

Rising adoption of reusable CIP systems 

Reuse CIP systems offer certain advantages over the single-use CIP systems such as the ability to recirculate the cleaning solution and the water used. This helps in saving overall cost of materials and reducing the amount of waste generated. In the reuse system, the recirculated cleaning detergents and water from a previous cleaning cycle are used in the pre-rinse step of the following cycle. Even though the initial cost of the reuse CIP system is higher, there are several benefits in the long run such as savings on the cost of cleaning chemicals and reduction of water consumption. Wastewater disposal costs are also reduced. For the efficient and economical recovery and reuse of cleaning solutions and rinse water, multi-tank systems are employed in reuse CIP systems. Multi-tank reuse CIP systems are preferred in a variety of industries, such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverage among others.
