Global Membranes Market Size & Growth (2021 to 2026)

Membranes Market at a global is predicted to worth USD 14.60 billion by 2026 from USD 8.92 billion in 2021, growing at 10.35% CAGR.

The increase in the need for clean saline-free water in the rapidly urbanizing world creates a strong driving force for the global market of membranes. The cost-effectiveness of membrane separation over other methods adds to the demand for membrane separation hence driving the global market.However, the strict regulations imposed on the key producers of membranes may restrain the growth of the global market in the mentioned period. Also, the worldwide market concentration in a particular region eventually makes the market expansion less likely.


  • Imtex Membranes, a Canada-based membrane manufacturer, has received more than USD 6 million from Sustainable Development Technology Canada, a government agency, to develop advanced technology of membrane separation, which could reduce the harmful emissions from the refining and petrochemical industries in Ontario, Canada.
  • Aqua Membranes, an Albuquerque-New Mexico based startup, is prepared to launch their new water filtration technology that can pump much more water than any ordinary home, industrial, or commercial purification systems.

global membranes market segmentation:

Membranes Market Analysis – By Type:

  • Polymeric
  • Ceramics  
  • Others      

Of the mentioned types of membranes, the polymeric sector leads the global membranes market due to its extensive usage in the wastewater treatment in industries. However, the ceramic membrane technology has witnessed an increase in applications in various work fields, thus making the fastest growing industry in the forecast period.

Membranes Market Analysis – By Technology:

  • Ultrafiltration (UF)
  • Reverse Osmosis (RO)
  • Gas Separation
  • Nanofiltration (NF)
  • Pervaporation, Microfiltration (MF)
  • Others

Among the mentioned variety of technologies, the RO sector has accounted for the maximum market share in 2019, as it is cost-effective in nature. However, the nanofiltration sector is estimated to grow with the highest growth rate in the forecast period, owing to the increasing NF technology usage in the separation of tiny salt particles from wastewater.

Membranes Market Analysis – By Application:

  • Water & Wastewater Treatment
  • Food & Beverages
  • Medical & Pharmaceuticals
  • Industrial Gas Processing
  • Others

In 2019, the water & wastewater treatment segment had the highest share in the global market applications. The increased demand for water desalination units led to this application to dominate the market. The medical & pharmaceutical sector of application is expected to grow with the maximum growth rate, owing to the increasing end-user industries worldwide.

Membranes Market Analysis – By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Asia Pacific had the largest global market share in the year 2018 and is expected to be the fastest-growing market in the forecast period due to its high CAGR, increasing demand for growing industries, and the scope of future opportunities, mainly in developing countries like Japan, India, and China.

The market value of Europe and North America are next in the lead, following the Asia Pacific. The regional advantages offered like cheap labor, ease of resource availability make the global market concentrated in the Asia Pacific, making North America and Europe slow-growth markets.

The Middle East & Africa and Latin America regions, being in the low developing countries due to low GDP countries' contribution, have fewer chances for industry growth. Hence, the Membranes market in these regions is slow-growing in nature.


By the end of 2019, The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), LG Water Solutions (U.S.), Merck Millipore (Germany), Pentair plc (U.K.), Toray Industries (Japan), Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Carlisle SynTec Systems (U.S.), Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), Firestone Building Products Company, LLC (U.S.), GE Water & Process Technologies (U.S.), and Hydranautics (U.S.) are the leading shareholders of the Global Membranes market. These companies are currently focused on entering into related industries and targeting new markets to avoid the effects of volatile economies, thus improving their market value and position.
