Membranes Market Dynamics

Driver: Selective separation technology

A certain level of purity is to be maintained in the separation processes in water treatment, food & beverage processing, and pharmaceutical applications, which can be provided by selective types of membranes. Concerns about the impact of contaminants such as pharmaceutical residues and pesticides in ground water sources have emerged recently. In such situations, the requirement of selective separation technology in the filtration process is required to meet the established water quality standards, which is ultimately driving the global ultrafiltration market.

Restrain: High capital costs

The membranes industry is capital-intensive in nature, and hence, many small players are discouraged from entering the business. The initial investment cost for setting up membrane modules in end applications is very high for small players. Moreover, the existing players are more dominant in the market, which makes it difficult for the new entrants to establish high-cost manufacturing units and market their products. Thus, the high capital cost for setting up new plants becomes the major restraint for the growth of the global ultrafiltration market. However, with high-quality water and stringent regulations for wastewater discharge implemented by governments in North America and Europe, small industry players are now using ultrafiltration in various applications. In developing regions such as APAC and South America, small-scale industry players are shifting to membrane technology.

Opportunity: Rising scarcity of fresh water

The scarcity of fresh water is a major problem faced by industries as well as the society in general. Industries will require large volumes of water in their production process, which also generates industrial wastewater. Recycle and reuse of water will be essential for companies to manage water as it is a scarce resource. The growth in industrialization will require more resources in the coming years. This growth is expected to create new opportunities for the use of ultrafiltration. Stringent regulations and growing environmental concerns are factors that are expected to drive the industries to recycle and reuse water to achieve zero discharge. With significant growth in population, urbanization, industrialization, pollution, and climate change, the water scarcity will continue to increase. This situation will be more concerning in water-scarce countries in the Middle East. Rising scarcity of fresh water has increased the need for desalination of water from oceans, especially in developing countries such as India, Thailand, Indonesia, and so on. Countries in the Middle East & Africa and South America are establishing brackish water treatment units and water desalination units for the desalination of seawater. This is expected to significantly increase the demand for ultrafiltration in the near future.

Challenge: Issue related to lifespan and efficiency of membranes

The lifespan of membranes used in a separation process has some operating constraints and thus, they need replacement after some years (2-5 years) of their operation. During water treatment or industrial process, certain components of proteins, bacteria, pyrogens, and colloids form a layer on the surface of membranes. The fouling and scaling of these particles on the membranes surface reduces the operational efficiency of ultrafiltration membranes.

Ceramics of the material segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecasted years

Excellent properties of ceramic membranes such as high temperature applications and high-pressure resistance over polymeric membranes. Ceramic membranes are resistant to concentrated acids and caustic solutions and offer higher flux than the polymeric UF membranes. These membranes are easy to clean; the important characteristics of ceramic UF membranes are high porosity, high permeability, longer shelf life, defined pore size, and good mechanical properties. Owing to these parameters ceramic ultrafiltration membranes is expected to grow at the fastest rate in the ultrafiltration membranes market

Hollow fibre segment is projected to grow the fastest amongst modules in the overall ultrafiltration membranes market

Hollow fiber ultrafiltration module has the highest packing density and is also the easiest to clean among other modules. Thus, hollow fiber is the most widely used ultrafiltration module, which is used across various end-use industries and is projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

Industrial treatment application accounted for the largest market share amongst applications in the membranes market

Industrial treatment accounted for the largest market share in applications in the membranes market. Membranes are widely utilized for the removal of impurities, particles, and suspended solids in the water treatment. Ultrafiltration membranes are largely used in the desalination of water. Additionally, the necessity of water treatment for eliminating contamination from industrial and sewage discharges is driving the ultrafiltration market in the water & wastewater treatment industry. Also, government regulations such as Water and Sewage Utilities Sector (NAICS 2213) and The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) along with the scarcity of fresh water are the major factors driving the ultrafiltration market in the industrial treatment industry. Increasing awareness towards wastewater treatment is also expected to drive the ultrafiltration membranes demand in industrial treatment application.

Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at the fastest growth rate in the global ultrafiltration membranes market

Asia Pacific is the largest & fastest-growing market for ultrafiltration membranes. Presence of several emerging economies including China and India, rising population, and increasing awareness towards water treatment and water recycling are some of the driving factors for the membranes market in this region. Furthermore, government regulations pertaining to environmental protection are expected to positively impact the ultrafiltration membranes market in Asia Pacific region.
