United States Membrane Technology Market for Liquid & Gas Separations, 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

April 4, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 4, 2019--The “Membrane Technology for Liquid and Gas Separations” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Primary drivers for membrane sales include consumer demand for high-quality products, increased regulatory pressure, deteriorating natural resources, and the need for environmental and economic sustainability.

By technology type, the market for RO owes its high growth rate to the expanding market for desalination, increased applications in process water treatment and interest in reclaiming used water. NF membrane products are being used in applications beyond their traditional role in water treatment to meet demanding refinery, chemical and pharmaceutical separations involving solvents.

MF and UF products are in demand for treating potable and process water, but the most rapid growth in this sector is in wastewater treatment with membrane bioreactors and the manufacture of biological drugs. The food and beverage industries are also long-time, steady purchasers of membranes, with these pore sizes used in the concentration, clarification and microbial stabilization processes.

Largely replaced by other membrane technologies for drinking water treatment, ion exchange membranes used in electrochemical processes are finding important niche markets in the food and fine chemicals industries and the production of hydrogen by water splitting. Configured as membrane adsorbers, ion exchange membranes also have growing applications for separations required for biopharmaceutical production.

Several new membrane products for gas separation are on the cusp of commercialization. After years in which there was a lack of suitable materials for large and promising applications in several areas, inorganic and organic/inorganic hybrid membranes are poised to enter the market for uses such as hydrogen separation and natural gas purification. Pervaporation is also on the verge of widespread adoption for several lucrative uses in fuel manufacturing and refinery processes.
