The global membrane filtration market is estimated to see a high growth in the future. The rapidly growing dairy industry and regulations for water safety and filtration have significantly fueled the market for membrane filtration. Further, due to the rising demand for premium products and efficiencies offered by membrane filtration technologies, there has been a growing need for membrane filtration for various end uses.
The water & wastewater segment is projected to account for the largest share in the membrane filtration market. Membrane filtration technologies are increasingly being used for the removal of bacteria, microorganisms, particulates, and natural organic material from water, which can change the color, taste, and odor of water. The growing awareness among consumers is enabling water processing plants as well as government bodies to place more emphasis on limiting the concentrations and number of chemicals that are utilized during water treatment.
The reverse osmosis (RO) segment accounted for the largest market size in the membrane filtration market for food & beverages during the forecast period. The reverse osmosis (RO) technology is used to remove the harmful contaminants from water by increasing the pressure on the water to move through a semi-permeable membrane. This process generally removes minerals such as iron, fluoride, lead, salt, manganese, and calcium. Reverse osmosis offers high efficiency in terms of water purification; it can typically remove up to 99% of most of the mineral contaminants.
Tubular systems segment in membrane filtration market for food & beverages is projected to record a faster growth during the forecast period. Tubular membrane modules are tube-like structures that contain porous walls. These modules are generally used for processing feed streams, which consist of high dissolved solids, high suspended solids, and/or oil, grease, or fats. These modules are also widely utilized for water applications, as they are highly efficient in removing contaminants and producing high-quality processed water.
Asia Pacific is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. Increasing usage of membrane filtration in water processing plants for purification and the dairy & food industries for pasteurization, sterilization, and concentration processes in this region create huge demand for membrane filtration technology.
