The global membrane filtration market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6%-8% by 2025

   January 13, 2021
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the membrane filtration market looks promising with opportunities in the water & wastewater and food & beverage industries. The global membrane filtration market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6%-8% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for this market are rapidly growing dairy industry, regulations for water safety and filtration, and rising demand for premium products and efficiencies offered by membrane filtration technologies.

Membrane filtration involves passing a single feed stream through a membrane system that separates it into two individual streams, known as the permeate and the retentate. In this market, RO, UF, MF, and NF are the major types of membrane filtration. Lucintel forecasts that RO will remain the largest type segment over the forecast period, as the RO process removes minerals, such as iron, fluoride, lead, salt, manganese, and calcium. The water used in the beverage industry comes typically from municipal sources. This water is drinkable, but contains elements of hardness or deposits of heavy metals that are usually from the pipes that transport the water; such elements in the water may affect the taste of the water, and thereby, the taste of the beverages.

Within this market, water & wastewater will remain the largest application segment over the forecast period due to growing awareness among consumers, growing emphasis on reducing the usage of chemicals in water treatment, advantages, such as effective purification and reduced operation cost, and adoption of this technology by governments to provide safe and clean drinking water to households.

Asia Pacific will remain the largest region over the forecast period due to increasing usage of membrane filtration in water processing plants for purification and the dairy & food industries for pasteurization, sterilization, and concentration processes in this region.

3M Company, The WABAG Group, Pall Corporation, GEA Group, Dow Company, Koch Membrane System, and Veolia Water Technologies are among the major suppliers in the global membrane filtration market.
