Membrane Separation Technologies Market Size, Segmentation, Opportunities, Trends, Growth and Industry Forecast To 2022


Membrane separation technology is used for the separation of materials based on their molecular arrangement. Ultrafiltration, microfiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis are the prime methods for performing membrane filtration. Growing preference for clean and treated water and stringent government regulations to provide clean potable water is urging the water processing industry to adopt membrane filtration technologies. Moving from chemical to physical filtration processes is a prime factor driving this market since chemical treatments are being increasingly considered to have environmental repercussions. The demand for membrane filtration technologies is also on the rise in water-stressed regions.

Some of the foremost benefits derived from the use of membrane separation technologies over other conventional methods include simple processing, lesser use of harmful chemicals, ease in desalination, and energy efficiency. It has been proved that membrane separation can be efficiently employed to treat groundwater, saline water, and wastewater and demineralize boiler feed water for repeat use. The major application of membrane separation technologies is found in water treatment, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries.

Growing stringent guidelines from environmental bodies and mandates from national governments in areas experiencing water paucity have triggered the demand for healthier, cheaper, and safer water treatment methods. In addition, the global industrial growth and rise in population have equally surged the demand for better water treatment technologies. These factors serve as the most substantial growth opportunities for membrane separation technologies.
