Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems Market 2017-2021
About Reverse Osmosis (Ro) Systems
RO is a technology that uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove dissolved salts or organic molecules from water. The water is pushed under pressure through the membrane, which allows the passage of water molecules but prevents the dissolved salts and bacteria from passing through.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global reverse osmosis (Ro) systems market to grow at a CAGR of 7.47% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is improvement in membrane technology. Membrane technologies play a vital role in water and energy sustainability. Some membrane technologies, such as wastewater treatment by membrane reactors and desalination by RO, are already being applied in industries on a large scale.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is advances in technologies. RO has become an important demineralization technique worldwide. Since the development of the first commercially viable RO membranes during the 1950s, improvements in performance and durability have resulted in membranes, which are more efficient and less costly to operate. For instance, low-energy RO membranes have succeeded in delivering high-quality permeate and high productivity with low-pressure requirements. This advance has allowed RO membranes to operate on low-temperature feed water sources that otherwise would require prohibitively high operating pressure.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is impact of hard water on cleaning equipment. The presence of calcium and magnesium ions leads to hardness in 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 the scaling of membranes, and regular backwashing of membranes is required to tackle this issue. For instance, in an RO system, scaling of membranes makes the RO system work even harder, resulting in the wastage of water, additional utility bills, and inefficient water purification.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
