World Membrane Separation Technologies

World Membrane Separation Technologies

Growth in the world membrane separation technologies market will total 8.5% annually through 2019, reaching $26.3 billion. Gains will be fueled by rising industrial output globally as well as the growing need for desalination, water purification, and water recovery in areas with scarce water resources.

This report segments the world membrane separation technology industry by product, market, and region. Data are provided in US dollars.

Membrane separation technologies include:
Microfiltration
Reverse Osmosis
Ultrafiltration
Other

Microfiltration was the largest of these products in 2014, accounting for 40% of the market. Fastest growth will be in the Other category, particularly nano filtration, since these products tend to be more advanced and newer to the market.

Major markets for membrane separation technology include:
Food & Beverage Processing
Pharmaceutical & Medical
Water Treatment
Wastewater Treatment

Water treatment will remain the largest market through 2019, accounting for 28% of demand. The most rapid gains through 2019 are forecast for the pharmaceutical and medical market, fueled by expansion in medical care and the emergence of biotechnology.

Historical demand and forecasts for 21 countries in the following regions are covered in this report:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

The Africa/Mideast region will see the strongest advances among world regions through 2019. However, China will experience the fastest growth among individual countries as it invests in treatment systems to make brackish and polluted waters usable.

Producers of membrane separation technologies include small specialty firms, medium sized membrane and filtration companies, and large multinational corporations that participate in many industries. Among the companies discussed in this study are Asahi Kasei, Danaher (Pall), Dow Chemical (Dow Water and Process Solutions), General Electric (GE Water and Process Technologies), Merck, Nitto Denko (Hydranautics), Pentair, 3M (3M Purification), Toray Industries, and Xylem.
