Membrane filtration is referred to as the filtration process that involves the use of the membrane for the separation of molecules of different sizes and characteristics. It is used for the removal of the bacteria, microorganisms, particulates, and natural organic material that can impart color, tastes, and odors to water and react with disinfectants to form disinfection byproducts. It involves the passing of the single feed stream through a membrane system that separates it into two individual streams i.e., permeate and the retentate. The global membrane filtration market valued USD XX million in 2018 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2026.
The membrane filtration market is driven by the rising demand for membrane filtration in industries including the dairy processing, water & wastewater treatment, and other industries due to their advantages such as reliability, consistency, high flexibility, high and lower operating costs. Membrane filtration involves the use of fewer chemical additives for the removal of the impurities.
The rise in the launch of the novel membrane filtration products shall stimulate market growth. For instance, in July 2018, Koch Separation Solutions had launched the new line of Electrocoat (E-coat) paint spiral ultrafiltration membranes offering manufacturers greater recovery of paint resin and pigments. These products provide the provided energy efficiency, zero bypass operation, and longer membrane life, as well as a simplified system design with easy and safe membrane replacement. The new KPAK PLUS and SPIRAPAK PLUS modules feature optimized element design and construction to improve performance while providing the same excellent separation properties and low fouling characteristics as the traditional KPAK and SPIRAPAK modules.
In January 2015, Synder Filtration had launched the new line of industrial ultrafiltration membranes developed specifically for oil removal in wastewater treatment applications. Synder's PAN membranes serve as a more hydrophilic, lower-fouling alternative to PVDF for wastewater treatment applications. In addition, these membranes are suitable for use in a wide variety of other industrial applications, from oil removal in tailing ponds to enzyme purification.
Several companies are focusing on expanding their manufacturing capacity. For instance, in April 2020, Koch Separation Solutions had expanded its manufacturing capacity of its innovative PURON reinforced hollow fiber membrane technology by 50 percent. This manufacturing facility reflects KSS's significant growth and an increased ability to quickly serve businesses that utilize its reinforced hollow fiber membrane technologies for their industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment needs.
The global membrane filtration market is segmented based on product type as reverse osmosis (RO), ultrafiltration (UF), microfiltration (MF), and nanofiltration (NF). The reverse osmosis segment accounts for the highest market share due to the high usage of reverse osmosis for the removal of the harmful contaminants from water. It increases the pressure on the water for moving through a semi-permeable membrane. It is highly efficient for water removal as it is able to remove the minerals such as iron, fluoride, lead, salt, manganese, and calcium. It comprised of the semi-permeable, thin membrane with pores small enough to pass pure water through while rejecting larger molecules such as dissolved salts and other impurities. There is growing usage of reverse osmosis for protein purification in the pharmaceutical industry.
The ultrafiltration segment is expected to have positive market growth due to the usage of the ultrafiltration membrane in industrial sectors including the seawater, surface, well, and wastewaters. It is used to remove the remove essentially all colloidal particles i.e. 0.01 to 1.0 microns from water and some of the largest dissolved contaminants. It is the pressure-driven barrier to suspended solids, bacteria, viruses, endotoxins, and other pathogens to produce water with very high purity and low silt density.
Further, the market is also classified based on the design module as the spiral wound
tubular systems, plates & frames, and hollow fibers. The spiral wound tubular systems would account for the highest market share due to the increasing demand for the tubular systems for the processing feed streams, which consist of high dissolved solids, high suspended solids, and/or oil, grease, or fats. The spiral wound tubular systems are the tube-like structures that comprised of the porous walls. These tubular systems include comprised of several membranes, feed spacers, permeate spacers, and a permeate tube. These tubular systems are widely used for removing contaminants and producing high-quality processed water. The tubular systems are widely used in various industries including the dairy and wine industries. Various industries use the spiral wound tubular systems for the reduction of bacteria in milk, whey, whey protein concentrates, and brine. These tabular systems are used in the wine industry for the filtration of wine. The spiral wound tubular systems are also used for the whey protein concentration, lactose concentration, cathodic/anodic paint recovery, dye desalting and concentration, sulfate removal, and oil separation in wastewater applications.
By region, the global membrane filtration market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, Asia-Pacific dominated the global membrane filtration market and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period owing to the higher adoption of the membrane filtration for the water processing plants for purification and the dairy & food industries for pasteurization, sterilization, and concentration processes. There growing usage of the advanced membrane filters. China accounts for the highest market share of XX% in 2019 due to the presence of a large number of companies manufacturing the membrane filtration. Several companies are shifting their base and facilities due to the presence of cheap & skilled labor. The government is providing support for the usage of the membrane filtration technology in water purification. The growing per-capita income and purchasing power of the people shall boost the demand for membrane filtration over the forecasted period.
North America is expected to have positive market growth due to the growing usage of membrane filtration. The market is witnessing the technological advancement for the development of membrane filtration. Several membrane filtration products are present in the market. The rising consumption of functional foods shall stimulate market growth. There is high awareness regarding the drinking clean water among the consumers. Several pharmaceutical companies are also using the membrane filtration products for recycling used water, purifying wastewater, and separating of initial ingredients.
The global membrane filtration market is highly competitive with the presence of several international and local markets. Product diversification, revenue generation, and opportunities intensify the market competition. 3M Company, Dowdupont, Koch Membrane System, Veolia Water Technologies, Suez Water Technologies & Solutions, Alfa Laval, and Porvair Filtration Group are the leading market players with significant market share. The major players are using product development, novel product launches, market expansion, and product diversification strategies for holding their position in the market.
The companies are entering into the collaborations, mergers, strategic partnerships, and acquisitions to increase the demand for Membrane Filtration and their expansion across the globe. For instance, in October 2019, DuPont had entered into an agreement with Evoqua Water Technologies Corp to acquire the Memcor business including ultrafiltration and membrane biofiltration technologies from Evoqua Water Technologies Corp.
In September 2019, DuPont Safety & Construction had entered into the agreement to acquire the Ultrafiltration Membrane business from BASF SE including inge GmbH. This acquisition includes the business' international workforce, its headquarters and production site in Greifenberg, Germany, and associated intellectual property currently owned by BASF SE. This acquisition would help the company to broadens the portfolio and enhances the ability to design tailored, integrated solutions for drinking water, industrial, and wastewater treatment applications across the globe.
