Drivers

Stringent regulatory and sustainability mandates for environmental safety

Stringent regulatory and sustainability mandates have increased the demand for water purification and wastewater treatment. Environmental regulatory acts, such as Clean Water Act (CWA), Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), and related agencies, including Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), have enforced stringent rules and guidelines for eliminating the release of high amounts of toxic effluents into water sources. In Canada, over 150 billion liters of untreated wastewater is released into waterways every year, which is one of the major health, environmental, and economic issues. The Government of Canada established “Waste Water Effluent Regulations” under the Fisheries Act in 2012. The aim of this regulation is to treat the wastewater by secondary wastewater treatment and minimize wastage. The regulation mandates monitoring, record keeping, reporting, and toxicity testing of the water.

Restraints

High operating cost for end users

The membranes industry is capital-intensive. The initial capital investment for setting up membrane module plants is high and also increases the operating cost for the end users. The food & beverage, textile, pharmaceutical, and pulp & paper industries are required to install membrane technology for complying with the pollution control board (PCB) norms. This increases the operating cost and hampers the revenue of these end users of spiral membrane. In these industries, there are fewer contaminants in the effluent water. Therefore, these industries are trying to adopt alternative technologies such as distillation, chemical and biological water treatment technology for reducing their operating cost. This is a key restraint for the market and can lower the demand for spiral membrane during the forecast period.

The spiral membrane market is projected to grow from USD 5.10 billion in 2018 to USD 8.20 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 10.0% from 2018 to 2023. Spiral membranes are used in a wide range of end-use industries, such as water & wastewater treatment, food & beverages, pharmaceutical & biotechnology, oil & gas, and chemical & petrochemical. They act as a selective barrier, allowing the passage of certain constituents while retaining others. These membranes are mainly termed as filtration elements and are widely used in commercial and industrial applications. With recent developments in spiral membrane materials and increasing demand for the reduction of energy consumption in the chemical processing industry, newer membranes and processes are being developed for new applications.

Based on polymer type, the polyamide segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the spiral membrane market during the forecast period (2018-2023). The expected large market share is due to the vast availability and cost-effectiveness of polyamide membranes when compared to other membrane materials.

Based on technology, the reverse osmosis segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the spiral membrane market during the forecast period. The expected large market share is due to the growing use of reverse osmosis in desalination and industrial effluent applications.

Based on end-use industry, the water & wastewater treatment segment is projected to lead the spiral membrane market during the forecast period. More than 50% of the global population resides in urban areas. China and India accounted for more than 30% of the global urban population. The rapidly growing population and urbanization have increased the demand for clean water. This, in turn, leads to the growing use of spiral membranes in the water & wastewater treatment industry.

Spiral Membrane Market

The APAC region is estimated to be the largest market for spiral membrane, globally. The growth of the APAC spiral membrane market can be attributed to the large industrial base and increased demand for spiral membrane from the water & wastewater treatment, chemical & petrochemical, oil & gas, pharmaceutical & biotechnology, and food & beverage industries of the region. Additionally, several initiatives by the region’s different governments to attract investments from various international companies are expected to propel the growth of the APAC spiral membrane market during the forecast period.

High maintenance cost for increasing the membrane’s lifespan is expected to be the major challenge for the growth of the spiral membrane market during the forecast period. DowDuPont Inc. (US), Toray Industries, Inc. (US), Hydranautics (US), LG Water Solutions (South Korea), SUEZ Water Technologies and Solutions (France), Merck Group (Germany), Pentair plc (US), Koch Membrane Systems (US), Pall Corporation (US), and Lanxess (Germany) are the key players operating in the spiral membrane market. These companies have adopted various organic and inorganic growth strategies between 2015 and 2018 to strengthen their position in the spiral membrane market. New product/technology development, partnerships, agreements, and collaborations were the key growth strategies adopted by these leading players to enhance their regional presence and meet the growing demand for spiral membrane from emerging economies.

Opportunities

Growing population and rapid urbanization in the emerging economies

There is a growing demand for spiral membranes in the emerging economies of APAC such as China, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, and South Korea. This is supported by the growing population and rapid industrialization, which is increasing the demand for clean water in agricultural, domestic, municipal, and industrial applications. In the recent years, China has witnessed acute water scarcity, as the country has only 6% of the world’s freshwater resources. The water sector is a high priority area for the country’s 12th five-year Water Resources Development Plan. Urbanization and growing environmental concerns have increased the use of spiral membranes in water & wastewater treatment. As a part of the five-year plan, the Government of China decided to upgrade about 2,000 water plants between 2011 and 2015. The government has also decided to build an additional 2,358 water plants with a combined capacity of 40 million cubic meters per day to meet the demand for water.

Challenges

High maintenance cost for increasing membrane lifespan

The lifespan of a particular type of membrane used in a water treatment process is constrained and, therefore, needs replacement after a certain period of time. Membranes used in various water separation processes are prone to fouling after which, they do not have the same operational efficiency.

During water treatment processes, certain components such as iron, manganese, calcium, sulfate, and other ions may form a precipitation on the membrane surface. For instance, if the RO feed water contains a high concentration of material that tends to foul the membrane, the lifespan of the membrane will decrease. The feed water is likely to affect the membrane adversely during the separation process.

In a membrane bioreactor (which uses UF or MF technology) system, the filtration element is installed external to the reactor, due to which, fouling of membrane occurs after periodic usage, leading to higher operational and maintenance costs even if the installation costs were less for reactor installation. These factors pose a challenge for the spiral membrane market growth.
