Global RO Membrane Market 2015-2019

About Reverse Osmosis Membranes

Reverse Osmosis is a technology that uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove dissolved salts or organic molecules. The water is pushed under pressure through the membrane, which allows the passage of water molecules but prevents the dissolved salts and bacteria to pass through. A high-pressure pump is used to apply the required pressure for carrying out the process, and depends on the salt concentration of the feed water. The semi-permeable membrane used for the process is primarily made up of two materials: cellulose acetate and an aromatic polyamide. In addition, the RO membranes can be categorized into - asymmetric membranes and thin film composite membranes. While asymmetric membranes contain one polymer, the thin film composite membranes contain two or more layers of polymers. The Global Reverse Osmosis Membrane market was valued at US$1.2 billion in 2014. The growth of the market is mainly driven by the increasing global demand for cheap and efficient water treatment solutions. In 2014, most of the market share was held by the EMEA region. The market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.3 percent during the period 2014–2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global RO Membrane Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global RO Membrane Market: The Dow Chemical Company, Koch Membrane Systems, Nitto Denko Corp and Toray Industries, Inc.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Applied Membranes, GE Water, LG NanoH2O, Membrane Specialists, Nanoasis, PCI Membranes and Pure Aqua

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increases in governmental initiatives are one of the major trends upcoming in the market. Countries worldwide have initiated programs such as the Water Management Action Plan (2009) and the Environmental and Resource Efficiency Plan in Australia (2008), The Special Plan for Seawater utilization in China (2005) and the US Clean Water Act (1972, Amendment 1987).”

According to the report, the most important factor driving the market growth is the need for safe drinking water. This in turn has spurred the need for recycling waste or salt water, which requires the use of water treatment processes such as water desalination

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is membrane fouling. The membranes used in the RO process are exposed to various chemicals and other impurities. This causes membrane fouling which reduces the effectiveness of membranes.
