The global membrane separation technology market is projected to reach USD 28.10 Billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 7.2%. The membrane separation technology market has witnessed significant growth in recent years, and this growth is projected to persist in the coming years as well. Membrane separation technology is used to separate and purify a specific component from the rest of the mixture. This technology is widely used for commercial and industrial purposes. With recent developments in the membrane separation technology market and increasing demand for the reduction of energy consumption in the chemical processing industry, newer membrane technologies and processes are being developed for new applications.

Membrane separation technology is used in various applications such as water & wastewater treatment, industrial processing, medical & pharmaceutical, food & beverages, and others, which are the main applications considered in the report. In 2016, the water & wastewater treatment application accounted for the largest market share, followed by food & beverages, industrial processing, medical & pharmaceutical, and others. The growing demand for water desalination units and brackish water treatment is a major factor for the largest share of the water & wastewater treatment application in the membrane separation technology market. The medical & pharmaceutical application is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022 among all the applications. Due to high selectivity, reliability, permeability, and cost-effectivity, demand is increasing in the medical & pharmaceutical applications.

Various types of membrane separation technologies are considered in the report including Reverse Osmosis (RO), Ultrafiltration (UF), Microfiltration (MF), Nanofiltration (NF), and others. Among these technologies, RO accounted for the largest market share as it is cost effective. NF is the fastest growing technology owing to increasing usage to separate trace amounts of salts and other dissolved solutes from already treated water to produce ultrapure water for the electronics industry.

North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America are the main regions considered for the membrane separation technology market in the report. The Asia-Pacific is the largest membrane separation technology market, and leads due to the extensive usage of membrane separation technology in medical & pharmaceutical, water & wastewater treatment, and chemical processing sectors. The market for the Middle East & Africa is projected to witness the second-highest growth rate from 2017 to 2022, owing to the increasing demand for water treatment plants for industrial applications such as food & beverages, and pharmaceutical in the region.

Market players adopted new products/technology developments as the key strategy to strengthen their positions in the market and to satisfy customer needs.

Largely, the membrane separation technology market is fragmented with leading participants such as The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), The 3M Company (U.S.), GE Water & Process Technologies (U.S.), Toray Industries (Japan), Merck Millipore (Germany), Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), Hydranautics (U.S.), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), Pentair plc (U.K.), and Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (U.S.).

Membrane Separation Technology Market

Though the membrane separation technology market is growing at a significant rate, a few factors such as the high price of equipment, shift of the end-use market from developed countries to emerging countries, and the rising cost of production hinder the growth of the market, globally.

The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), GE Water & Process Technologies (U.S.), The 3M Company (U.S.), Toray Industries (Japan), and Merck Millipore (Germany) are the leading companies in this market. These companies are projected to account for a significant share of the market in the near future. Entering into related industries and targeting new markets will enable membrane separation technology manufacturers to overcome the effects of volatile economies, leading to diversified business portfolios and increase in revenues. Other major membrane separation technology providers are Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), Hydranautics (U.S.), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), and Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (U.S.).
