Global Cross Flow Membrane Market 2017-2021
About Cross Flow Membrane
Cross-flow filtration, also known as tangential flow filtration, is a type of filtration in which the feed flows or travels parallel to the membrane surface rather than traveling perpendicular to the surface or through the membrane as in the case of conventional filtration processes.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cross flow membrane market to grow at a CAGR of 6.98% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is improvement in membrane technology. Membrane technologies play a vital role in water and energy sustainability. Some of the membrane technologies like wastewater treatment by membrane reactors and desalination by RO are already applied in industries on a large scale. In addition to addressing energy and water scarcity issues, membrane technologies meet the sustainability criteria such as environmental impact, ease of use, land use, adaptability, and flexibility. They still need to be improved in terms of affordability and cost, energy consumption, and expertise.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising industrial development and urbanization. Rapid industrial development has changed the social and economic structure of society with the transition of the agrarian-based society into an industrial one. The modernization of lifestyles has driven large-scale industrial production. Various industries such as oil and gas, power generation, refineries, mining, construction, food and beverage, steel manufacturing, electronics, and pharmaceuticals are contributing to the contamination of water resources. This has resulted in the increased use of water by industries.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is impact of hardwater on water treatment equipment. The presence of calcium and magnesium ions leads to the hardness of water. These ions bind, harden, and thicken as their concentrations increase. In water purification systems that use membranes, these ions tend to block the membranes completely. This process is known as scaling of membranes, and regular backwashing of membranes is required to tackle this issue. For instance, in an RO system, scaling of membrane makes the RO system work even harder, resulting in wastage of water, additional utility bills, and inefficient water purification.
