Global Membrane Market Report 2022: Sector is Expected to Reach $49.25 Billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 12.2% -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Membrane Market Size, Share, Growth Analysis, By Technology, By Application , By Material - Industry Forecast 2022-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Membrane Market size was valued at USD 22.0 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 49.25 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 12.2% during the forecast period (2022-2028).

The market is anticipated to grow significantly as dairy processing and the food and beverage industries employ membrane technology. The widespread adoption of membrane separation techniques is also projected to benefit from technological advancements that increase durability and reduce fouling possibilities.

Increasing product demand from end-use industries and environmental regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which are predicted to hasten technological advancement, are forcing companies in the United States to deploy water treatment solutions. The economic recovery and government initiatives to assist environmental protection are also predicted to be major drivers of the U.S. market for membrane separation technology.

For treating wastewater, industrial processing, and upholding cleanliness in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical facilities, there was a significant increase in the need for high-quality processing equipment starting in 2020. As a result, the demand for membrane separation technology grew. The demand for high purity consumables in the food and medical industries has significantly increased in response to COVID satiation.

To enhance their market share in the membrane separation technology industry, several businesses have mostly used acquisitions, divestitures, and geographic expansion. The development of membrane products with increased durability and higher flow rates has been made possible by rising spending and continued R&D in the membrane market. The participants' main concern, meanwhile, is likely to be shifting raw material prices.

Pure Filtered Drinking Water Demand Will Raise Membrane Demand

The use of membrane systems to produce highly purified water for a range of applications is growing as a result of their ability to remove all small and large ions, colloids, organics, bacteria, and pyrogens from the feed water. The rise in demand for membrane systems is anticipated to result in an increase in demand for membrane chemicals to enhance the performance of the membranes and remove impurities that have formed on their surfaces during operation.


Limit Market Expansion by Holding Back on Fluctuating Crude Oil Prices

The global market for membranes is hampered by changes in crude oil prices. The high cost of raw materials affects how much it costs to produce a membrane, which drives up membrane pricing and squeezes manufacturer margins. Investments in installation and R&D are significant requirements for the production of membranes.

Environmental restrictions are very strict in industrialised nations as well, which puts financial pressure on firms to uphold the strict standards.

Market Trends

In recent years, there has been a notable technological advancement in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries. In the industrial, they are highly useful for recovering valuable intermediate or substrate or for reducing the concentration of effluent streams.

To reduce the harmful components in the effluent stream, the pharmaceutical industry frequently uses nano filtration and pervaporation processes. Microplastic, endocrine disruptors, BOD/COD, dyes, pigments, and other contaminants are frequently filtered out using barrier films employed in nano-filtration. It is projected that as laws and regulations governing wastewater treatment and pre-treatment effluents become stricter, demand for the product would rise.
