LONDON, Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Membranes are one of the most common filtration elements used in commercial and industrial applications. Membrane is a selective barrier that allows the passage of constituents and retains the others. Membrane properties such as durability, reliability, stability, high permeability and selectivity make membranes essential for use in variety of applications. Most of the membranes are used in water & wastewater treatment and pharmaceutical and medical use sectors. The demand for membranes for use in industrial gas processing industry and pharmaceutical & medical use industry are major drivers of the membranes market in the coming years.
The global membranes market is dominated by Asia-Pacific and North America, accounting for majority of the market in 2013. Country wise, China is the top most consumer of membranes globally and is also growing at a higher CAGR than the global average till 2019. China and Australia have enormous potential and are the fastest growing markets for membranes in the Asia-Pacific as well as globally. The U.S. and European countries are leading in research and development of high performance membranes products to be used in pharmaceuticals & medical uses, and industrial gas processing sectors. Member countries of EU; Germany, France, Italy, U.K., Spain, and Russia are the key markets in the European membranes market and constitute majority of the market size. The water & wastewater treatment sector in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region will continue to be supported by demand for fresh water through desalination in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and U.A.E., thus driving the membrane market in these regions.
The water & wastewater treatment and pharmaceutical & medical use segments occupy the topmost positions in the membranes market with approximately 60% share by value in 2013; maximum growth is expected from industrial gas processing and pharmaceutical & medical use segments in the near future. The high permeability & selectivity, reliability, cost-effectiveness and filtration properties of membranes drive its growth in water & wastewater treatment, pharmaceutical & medical uses, food & beverages, chemical processing, industrial gas processing and other segments. The factors responsible for the growing demand of membrane industry are the growth in global water industry, stringent regulations, environmental concerns, and increase in demand of purified water. Since membranes are reliable, have high permeability & selectivity, and are cost-effective, the demand of membranes is higher. The enormous potential in the Asian countries, particularly China and India, is likely to foster further growth of the membranes market
