Membrane Bioreactor Systems Market By Type (Hollow Fiber, Spiral-Wound, Flat Sheet, Tubular), By Configuration (Internal/Submerged, External/Side Stream), By Application (Municipal Wastewater Treatment, Industrial Wastewater Treatment) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Membrane bioreactors (MBR) are the latest technology used across the globe for waste management and water treatment. Membrane bioreactors comprise a combination of membrane processes such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nano-filtration combined with a biological waste-water treatment process. This process has been widely implemented in the treatment of municipal waste water and industrial wastes. MBR process produces high quality recycled water that could be used for urban irrigation process. With stringent government regulations being undertaken for waste treatment for industries, the demand for membrane bioreactor systems is on a rise, thus propelling the growth of membrane bioreactor systems market in the current and forecast period.

Membrane Bioreactor Systems Market

Based on applications, the global membrane bioreactor systems market is segmented as follows:

  • Municipal wastewater treatment
  • Industrial wastewater treatment

Membrane bioreactor systems majorly find application in municipal wastewater treatment and industrial waste water treatment plants. In the current period, municipal wastewater treatment grabs a major market share in the membrane bioreactor systems market owing to the rise in government initiatives to promote recycling of water and implement effective wastewater treatment. For instance, the Clean Water Act and the Clean Water Protection Act in the United States promotes municipal wastewater treatment, thus increasing the demand for membrane bioreactor systems.  Additionally, the shortage of water in the middle and low income countries have led to the increase in need for municipal wastewater treatment. As per the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) report 2017, around 844 million people do not have sufficient access to clean water. According to WASHWatch.org, diarrhea caused due to unclean water kills children below 5 years of age every 2 minutes. These statistics have propelled the government to implement strict regulations on municipal wastewater treatment.  

Industrial wastewater treatment segment shows a lucrative growth in the current and forecast period from 2018 to 2026 as strict regulations on disposal of industrial waste on to surface waters have been implemented. Membrane bioreactor systems are utilized in various industries such as pharmaceuticals, petroleum, food and chemical industries.

Membrane Bioreactor Systems Market

For the purpose of this study, the global membrane bioreactor systems market is categorized into the following regions:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

 Membrane Bioreactor Systems Market

The membrane bioreactor systems industry has a vast outreach across the globe as several initiatives regarding wastewater treatment are being implemented worldwide to curb the adversities accompanied with untreated wastewater.  According to the UN World Water Development Report 2017, 70% of the municipal and industrial wastewater are being treated in the high-income countries. About 38% of the water waste is treated in the upper middle income countries and 28% in the lower middle income countries. In the low-income countries, only 8% of the total wastewater undergoes treatment. Amongst the various geographies analyzed, Asia Pacific holds supremacy in the membrane bioreactor systems market owing to the enormous adoption of wastewater treatment plants and developing industrial infrastructure.

Asia Pacific is expected show maximum demand for MBR systems in the forecast period owing to stringent government regulations being implemented currently on to municipal wastewater and industrial wastewater treatment. As per the Asian Development Bank, most of the Asian cities do not have effective water treatment plants. It is observed that only 14% of the wastewater is treated in Indonesia and in case of India, it accounts to only 9%. Additionally, presence of significant manufacturing base across industries such as textile, mining, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals in China and India contribute to the growth of MBR systems market.  Thus the demand for MBR systems is expected to rise in the forecast period from 2018 to 2026 in the Asia Pacific market.
