Global Membrane Market 2017-2021

Global Membrane Market 2017-2021

About Membrane

A membrane acts as a selective barrier that separates and concentrates the feed stream, allowing the constituents to pass while impurities are retained on the membrane. The constituents that pass through the membrane are termed as permeates, and those that are retained are known as concentrates or retentates. The selection of membranes for specified applications depends on the pore size of the membrane. Ultrafiltration, microfiltration, reverse osmosis, and nanofiltration are some of the membrane filtration technologies. Other membrane technologies such as membrane contractors, electrodialysis, and pervaporation are also used; however, their market share is low.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global membrane market to grow at a CAGR of 9.05% during the period 2017-2021.
