    What challenges are facing the cleanroom industry in 2016? We queried and interviewed cleanroom professionals from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Switzerland (see page 16). Among the answers, a few topics were especially conspicuous because they were more frequently mentioned than others. Besides standardization, automation and Track and Trace, these topics were particularly dominant: finding and qualifying cleanroom employees as well as the establishment of new standards.

    This is why we are emphasizing in this issue how you can develop new or existing employees into qualified cleanroom operatives (see page 28). Furthermore you will learn about which changes for your production are applicable under the newly revised DIN EN ISO 14644-1 and -2 in our column Laws and Regulations (see page 50).

    Of course, we focus the CLEANROOM MAGAZINE on the needs of our readers with this topic and all others which are presented in this issue. We re-launched the magazine one year ago with the support from media scientists. The re-launch was based on market, competition and target group analyses. All this resulted in besides a new layout, a re-structuring of the contents.

    In order to find out how successful the re-launch was, we asked visitors and exhibitors at the last Cleanzone Trade Fair which topics in a professional journal for cleanroom technology are expected. The answers showed us that our mix of stories and articles correspond very well with current cleanroom issues, however we see potentials for making the magazine even better. Exploiting these potentials will be our biggest challenge in 2016 and we are looking forward to tackling these challenges.

    I wish you all the best in the coming year and enjoyable reading.

    Frank Duvernell Editor

    Frank Duvernell: We didnt want to only know which topics are relevant to you in a professional

    cleanroom journal. We also asked if cleanroom technology users and operators see themselves forming their own industry. The f indings were conclusive: 47 percent answered with a yes. This

    was ten percent more than just one year ago.

    Dear Readers,

    In your own opinion,

    do the cleanroom

    technology users

    consitute as a

    seperate industry?

    Cleanroom consumables clearly and cleanly identified

    Standardization | The industry association Cleanroom Suitable Consumables (CSC) is working on laying the foundation for a uniform cleanroom consumables cleanliness standard. This would encompass clothing, gloves, cleaning towels, packaging materials and much more. Up until now there have been no consistent, uniform requirements specifying how manufacturers in regards to cleanroom suitability should test and appropriately label their products. Such a set of regulations is badly needed in the industry. A survey carried out by the Fraunhofer IFA indicated that users are demanding more comparability. Manufacturers and suppliers also need this data as evidence for

    the quality of their products. The CSC held a meeting in December regarding this issue. Its long term goal is an ISO standard.

    Semi-conductor investments are decreasing

    Prognosis | Worldwide investments in semi-conductors are supposed to decrease in 2016 by 3.3 percent to $61.7 billion. This prognosis comes from the market research company Gartner. The analysts are looking to 2017 for renewed growth in the industry and

    this growth will be vigorous at 5.5 percent to $65.2 billion. In 2018, the industry w
