VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA, April 24, 2023 / -- According to a recent report by Emergen Research, the worldwide membranes market is anticipated to reach a value of USD 10.81 billion by 2027. This market expansion might be attributable to the rising demand for reusing water that has been recovered from various wastewater sources. The market is being driven by an increase in the use of membranes for producing potable drinking water from sources of groundwater, surface water, and seawater.

The need for membrane technology is rising as a result of increased research and development efforts aimed at improving desalination and wastewater treatment methods. Microfiltration and ultrafiltration are being used more frequently by municipalities to treat their water and waste. The application of membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment has been driven by its high efficiency and long life of the filtration media. The market for membrane technology will increase during the projected period because it takes less space than conventional technologies, or a smaller footprint.

Key Highlights of Report

In October 2019, DuPont revealed that it had inked a contract to buy BASF, a major German chemical company,'s ultrafiltration membrane division. Reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, and ion exchange resins are included in DuPont's portfolio of separation technologies and water purification products.

In 2019, the reverse osmosis market category had the highest market share at 39.3%. The use of reverse osmosis in water and wastewater treatment has expanded due to its high efficiency (up to 99.5%) in separating tiny particles, including bacteria and monovalent ions like chloride and sodium ions.

During the projection period, the polymeric segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 9.5%. The market is expected to grow during the forecast period as a result of the development of sophisticated polymeric membranes with increased efficiency and excellent performance. The requirement for filtration process optimisation is growing.
