Global Membrane Filtration Market: Focus on Reduction of Diseases Caused by Water-borne Sources is Expected to Enhance the Market Growth

Global Membrane Filtration Market

Membrane filtration is the process of filtering various impurities from liquids with the help of a thin semi-permeable sheet. This method is highly effective in the cleansing of water of any bacteria, impurities and microorganisms of any kind. This process is based on the pressure-focused method of separation along with the membrane so that the mechanical and chemical sieving of different particles can be achieved from the liquids. Although, it is a very accessible and cost-effective method of filtration it requires replacement of membranes after a certain period of time as it is fouled.

Membrane filtration market is growing due to high growth in dairy industry, strict regulations for water safety and filtration; the effects of these factors are mentioned below:

  • High growth in dairy industry: The growth for effective filtration technology from the food & beverages industry is on the rise considering the increasing amount of population shifting to urban areas. This has given rise to greater volume of consumption for packed, convenience products from the market with the dairy industry experiencing high demands in a number of their product range. This has been due to the fact that the dairy products are required to go enhanced volume of filtration procedures as the chances of them being spoiled before they are consumed by the ultimate end-users are high, therefore the need for effective purification from this industry is very high
  • Strict regulations for water safety and filtration: Another factor responsible for the global growth of membrane filtration market is the imposing of various strict regulations from the different authorities regarding the filtration of water from various industries before it is disposed off in the water bodies. This regulatory demand is expected to increase the rate of adoption for membrane filtration due to the cost-effective nature of the technology and effectiveness in performance

Strategic acquisitions and product innovations presented by various market players:

  • In July 2019, SWM International announced the launch of “REVONEX” membrane backing paper offering water filtration services and enhanced levels of performance for reverse osmosis membrane element producers during membrane casting process. The product has been developed due to the large-scale understanding and technical know-how of SWM International in paper manufacturing where the various needs of the RO market relating to papers are unmet
  • In January 2018, MICRODYN-NADIR announced that they had acquired OLTREMARE, with the company based out of Fano, Italy and having a vast distribution network for unique customized spiral membrane product offerings. This will help in expanding the presence of MANN+HUMMEL’s water treatment business operations, i.e. MICRODYN-NADIR to an enhanced geographical area, accelerating the rate of growth and capabilities for customized solutions

The market is segmented on the basis of membrane material as polymeric, ceramic; module design is categorized into spiral wound, tubular systems, plate & frame, hollow fiber; type as reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, nanofiltration; application as water & wastewater, food & beverages.

“According to Data Bridge Market Research, global membrane filtration market is expected be growing with a substantial CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025”

Some of the major players operating in market are 3M, The Dow Chemical Company, BASF SE, Suez Water Technologies & Solutions, TORAY INDUSTRIES, INC., Pall Corporation, Fileder Filter Systems Ltd., Prominent, Aquatech International, Koch Membrane Systems, Alfa Laval, Alfa Laval, Veolia Water Technologies, Acwa Services, Aquatech International, Koch Industries, Inc., Asahi Kasei Corporation, Synder Filtration, Microdyn-Nadir and others.

With the focus of many authorities on the reduction of diseases occurring from water sources, they are implementing significant filtration services and imposing a number of regulations so as to induce the various industrial players to filter out the wastes produced by them. This regulatory presence is expected to create a massive growth surge due to the requirement of various filtration benefits that membrane filtration technology offers.
