Ceramic Membrane Market by Material (Titania, Alumina, Zirconium Oxide), by Application (Water and Wastewater Technology, Pharmaceuticals, Food and Beverage, Chemical Processing, Biotechnology), by Technology (Ultrafiltration, Microfiltration, Nanofiltration), by Region - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2020

Ceramic membranes are defined as a chemically, mechanically, and thermally stable material having higher permeance and low membrane resistance as compared to polymeric membranes. They have the capability to provide mild, highly selective filtration process with high flux and without phase transformation and possess specific functional attributes. Ceramic membranes are used for engineering applications owing to their inherent characteristics, such as heat resistance, high durability, bacteria resistance, back flushing and steam sterilization, and high abrasion resistance.

Asia-Pacific region, being the largest consumer of ceramic membranes, is experiencing a steady growth due to increasing demand of ceramic membranes technologies and effective filtration & separation processes. The growth in manufacturing industries due to the increasing downstream demand is the major factor responsible for the growth of ceramic membranes market in China. Extensive usage of advanced ceramic membranes technologies, such as ultrafiltration, microfiltration, and nanofiltration for efficient water & wastewater treatment to overcome the water scarcity and water distribution challenges also contribute to the dominance of China in Asia-Pacific region.

The dominance of Chinese ceramic membranes market is expected to continue till 2020 at a steady growth rate due to continuous innovations along with industry consolidations thus asserting a bright future for the ceramic membranes industry in APAC.

Ultrafiltration is the major technology of ceramic membranes market. It is an efficient and cost-effective water treatment technology that helps in removal of high molecular weight substances, colloidal, and other molecules. The ultrafiltration ceramic membranes technology is used for removal of germs, viruses, bacteria, and all suspended solids without any chemical additives. Due to its simple and safe operation and management, UF technology is widely used in various application industries, such as water & wastewater treatment, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, chemical processing, and others.

This study estimates the market value for ceramic membranes and projects the same by 2020. As a part of qualitative analysis, the research provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, burning issues, and challenges in the market. The study segments the market by material, technology, and application industry at country level with the current market estimation and forecast till 2020.
