Scope of the Report
This Freedonia industry study analyzes the global membrane industry. It presents historical demand data (2008, 2013, and 2018) and forecasts (2023) by product (microfiltration, ultrafiltration, and reverse osmosis), material (polymeric and nonpolymeric), and market (water treatment, wastewater treatment, food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical and medical, chemical processing, commercial and consumer water treatment, and electronics processing). The study also evaluates company market share and competitive analysis on industry competitors including Asahi Kasei, Danaher, Merck, SUEZ, 3M, and Toray Industries.
