Membrane Filtration Market

Product Description:

The membrane separates contaminants from water when a driving force is provided through it. Membrane filtration is widely used to remove microorganisms, bacteria, and organic substances from water. Membrane filtration is one of the most important techniques to help maintain the original properties of food with little or no change in the product profile. This filtration can be applied to infinite industries such as chemical processing, food and dairy products. Membrane processes are increasingly used to remove microorganisms, bacteria, natural organic substances, and particles from drinking water and wastewater treatment, which can impart taste, odor, and color to water and react with disinfectants to form disinfection by-products. Membrane filtration is majorly used for semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing, wastewater treatment, water treatment, food and beverage processing, and process water treatment and separation in the petrochemical, chemical and other manufacturing industries.

Recent Developments in Membrane Filtration Industry:

  • In July 2018, Koch Separation Solutions launched a new line of Ultra-thin Electrocoat Paint Spiral Filtration Membranes (E-coat) to increase the recovery of paint resins and pigments for manufacturers.
  • In September 2019, DuPont Safety Construction agreed to take over BASF SE's ultrafiltration membranes business, including GmbH.
  • In April 2020, Koch Separation Solutions expanded the manufacturing capacity of the innovative PURON-enhanced hollow fiber desert technology by 50%.

Membrane Filtration Market Growth:

Innovation in ceramic membranes to optimize production efficiency in food processing is also expected to have a strong impact on the global membrane filtration market.

The rapid development of generic production is expected to stimulate the market. The rapidly growing dairy industry worldwide is driving market demand for membrane filtration. The growth of the bio-based pharmaceutical industry is also driving the global membrane filtration market. Besides, the growing demand for premium products among consumers around the world is also expected to have a significant impact on the membrane filtration business. The rapid growth of the dairy industry and water safety and filtration regulations have significantly increased the membrane filtration market revenue. Increasing awareness among consumers who drink clean water is expected to be a driving force for the growth of the global membrane filtration market size. Also, as the demand for premium products increases and the efficiencies provided by membrane filtration technology, the demand for membrane filtration for various end uses increases. Alongside the development of new technology in the membrane filtration markets, increasing the growth of the dairy industry, development in the bio-based pharmaceutical industry and rapid development of generic production are factors that promote the growth of the market for membrane filtration. This includes an increase in government security and filtering regulations that drive this market.

With increasing consumer awareness, water treatment plants and government agencies have focused more on limiting the concentration and number of chemicals used during water treatment. Therefore, taking into account the emphasis on reducing the use of chemicals in water treatment and the advantages such as effective purification and reduced operating costs provided by membrane filtration technology, government agencies around the world are also adopting this technology to provide safe and clean consumption. The market for membrane filtration is increasing as consumer awareness of security and filtration processes increases. The high growth of the dairy industry is also an important factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global membrane filtration market. In addition, advanced technologies in the field of membrane filtration are other key factors that are expected to accelerate the growth of the global market during the outlook period. In addition, updated regulations, strict industry standards, and growing consumer demand will lead the market in the near future. The rise in waterborne diseases is also expected to provide unexplored opportunities for market participants. Increasing stringent government regulations for water quality safety and filtration are key factors that are expected to fuel the growth of the global membrane filtration market. Recycling the water used in pharmaceutical synthesis, wastewater purification, and separation of initial components is expected to be the next opportunity for the membrane filtration market boom.


Initial system costs and explosion risk are expected to be a deterrent to market growth. Additionally, high equipment costs can hinder the membrane filtration market growth to some degree.

Impact of COVID 19 on the Membrane Filtration Market:

The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has its impact on all walks of life worldwide. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic is currently slowing progress and affecting the global membrane filtration market. Governments around the world are taking steps to close countries, especially affected cities, to prevent the spread of the virus. The government is also taking steps to prevent the slowdown.

Membrane Filtration Market Segmentation Analysis:

The Global Membrane Filtration Market is segmented by Application, by Type, by Membrane Material, by Module Design.

By application, the water and wastewater sector is expected to account for the majority of the membrane filtration market. Membrane filtration technology is increasingly used to remove bacteria, microorganisms, particles, and natural organic substances from water, which can change the color, taste, and smell of water.

Based on type, the reverse osmosis segment is expected to grow large in size in the membrane filtration market. Reverse Osmosis involves removal of minerals such as fluoride, salt, lead, calcium, iron and manganese. Reverse osmosis provides high efficiency in terms of water purification.

In terms of membrane materials, the membrane filtration market can be segmented as cellulose acetate, polysulfone and ceramic. Ceramic membranes are microporous, chemically resistant, thermally stable, and are often used for microfiltration. The ceramic segments are expected to expand at a fairly high rate during the forecast period. Membranes of this type are mainly used in the water treatment industry due to their properties, such as high chemical and physical stability, long service life and effective separation. Furthermore, this membrane is likely to have multiple uses in the food and beverage industry.

Based on modular design, theglobal membrane filtration market is segmented as beverages and food which is expected to improve faster during the forecast period. This module is commonly used for the treatment of highly dissolved solids, high suspended solids, and/or feed streams consisting of oil, grease, or grease. This module is also widely used in water treatment because it is very efficient at removing contaminants and producing high quality processed water.

Geographical Segmentation Analysis:

  • North America - the United States and Canada
  • Europe - United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France
  • The Asia Pacific - India, Japan, China, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia
  • Latin America  - Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Rest of LATAM
  • The Middle East and Africa - Africa and Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, Cyprus)

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is the main region of the global membrane filtration market. The market in this region is mainly driven by the increased use of membrane filtration in water treatment plants. China has a market share in the Asia Pacific region. The country's population growth has increased the need for purification technology to guarantee the supply of drinking water and sanitary and dairy products. The North American market is the second-largest share of revenue in the global membrane filtration market as government support for membrane filtration technology increases in the countries of this region. We are supporting the use of membrane filtration technology in the market by reusing water to meet growing demands to alleviate water scarcity and reduce shooting conditions. Furthermore, the constant increase in pollution along with water pollution are key factors in reducing the availability of water in the region. The European market is expected to register the fastest growth in terms of income as the demand for various processed foods increases in many population groups in the region. In addition, Latin American and Middle East and African markets are expected to post moderate growth rates during the forecast period.
