The Global Market for Membrane Microfiltration

The Global Market for Membrane Microfiltration

The global market for membrane microfiltration was nearly $1.8 billion in 2014, almost $1.9 billion in 2015, and will grow at CAGR of 6.7% to reach close to $2.6 billion by 2020.

This report provides:
An overview of the global market for microfiltration (MF) membrane products, including modules, capsules, cartridges, and cassettes.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of CAGRs through 2020.
Examination of MF membrane products by the major applications of the technology: food and beverage processing, biopharmaceuticals manufacture, potable water production, wastewater treatment, industrial processes, and semiconductor fabrication.
Statistics on markets, applications, industry structure, and dynamics along with technological developments.
Information on the global market as applied to liquid separations; analysis will not include membranes in the MF pore-size range for air and/or gas separations, or for nonseparating applications such as technical textiles or diagnostic kits.
Discussion of pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, and competitive technologies.
Profiles of major players in the industry.


SCOPE OF REPORT

This report examines the market for MF membrane products as reflected by the major applications of the technology: food and beverage processing, biopharmaceuticals manufacture, potable water production, wastewater treatment, industrial processes and semiconductor fabrication. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, membrane applications and trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles and competitive technologies are included in the study.

The report is a study of the global market as applied to liquid separations. Analysis will not include membranes in the MF pore size range for air and/or gas separations, or for nonseparating applications such as technical textiles or diagnostic kits. Medical devices based on MF membranes will not be addressed either. Values are given in U.S. dollars; forecasts are made in constant U.S. dollars, and growth rates are compounded. Sales of “membranes” refer to the sale of membranes packaged as modules, capsules, cartridges, cassettes or other devices in which the membranes are “housed.” Pressure vessels, housings, pumps, piping, controls or other system components are not included in the market values.
