INTRODUCTION

The global market for membrane technologies used in the food and beverage industry has been increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7% between 2015 and 2020, driven by the filtration process for food and beverage products. The market is primarily driven by Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe.

Filtration methods used in the food and beverage processing industry include reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF), ultrafiltration (UF) and microfiltration (MF).

Membrane technologies used by the food and beverage processing industry include, for example, cross flow membrane technology and hollow membrane technology.

These membranes are configured in many different ways. The open feed channel configuration includes tubular and hollow-fiber membranes, and the narrow feed channel configuration includes spiral or flat sheet membranes. Flat sheet membranes are mostly used in reverse osmosis and nanofiltration. Tubular membranes are used in
industrial microfiltration, whereas hollow fiber membranes are used in microfiltration and ultrafiltration.

Some of the key participants in the market for membranes technologies include Aquamarijn Micro Filtration BV, fluXXion BV, Polymem, Siemens, 3M Membranes, Donaldson Co. Inc., Dow Liquid Separations/Filmtec Corp., GE Water Treatment & Process Technologies, Graver Technologies, Koch Membranes Systems Inc., Meissner
Filtration Products Inc., Pore technology Inc., Xylem, Hyflux Ltd., Asahi Kasei Corp., Mitsubishi Rayon co. Ltd. and Toray industries Inc.

Asia-Pacific accounts for the highest market share of the global market followed by North America and Europe. Increasing application of membrane technologies in the food and beverage industry for liquid-solid milk separation, concentration of whey proteins, clarification, concentration, fractionation, desalting and purification of
different beverages are driving the membrane technological market.

This report also highlights the supplier landscape with a focus on profiles of major companies.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
