Membrane Filtration Market Highlights 2020 – 2029

The global membrane filtration market is estimated to garner a sizeable revenue by growing at a notable CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2021 – 2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to factors such as rising awareness of consumers regarding the benefits of filtration processes, increasing demand for premium quality membrane filtration systems, and stringent government regulations associated with the conservation of water. Along with these, rise in technological advancements in developing effective purification technologies is also expected to impact the market positively.

The market is segmented by type into ultrafiltration (UF), microfiltration (MF), nanofiltration (NF), and reverse osmosis (RO), out of which, the reverse osmosis segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the membrane filtration market on account of the high efficiency of this process  in view of water purification and ability to remove majority of the mineral contaminants effectively. Based on application, the segment for water is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period, which can be credited to the increasing usage of filtration techniques for the removal of harmful microbial microorganisms from water. According to the World Health Organization, around 2 billion people use drinking water source contaminated with feces. The growing emphasis of governments to reduce the consumption of chemicals in water treatment is also projected to boost the growth of this segment over the forecast period. On the basis of filter design, the tubular systems section is evaluated to witness the fastest growth in the coming years owing to the effectiveness of these equipment in producing high-level processed water, and the rise in demand for these systems in the beverage and dairy industries.
