Global Ceramic Membrane Market size is projected to grow with a high CAGR by 2025.
Escalating demand for high purity components in separation & filtration industry will propel global ceramic membrane market in coming years. An upward trend of urbanization across the globe, will need improved infrastructure, power, water and transportation; all of which entail advanced separation techniques. Ceramic membranes usage leads to substantial pressure resistance and process stability on account of their unique material properties. These membranes are resistant to acids and concentrated caustic solutions, easy to clean and offer a high flux. They require least pre-treatment and technical care. Weather disparities as well as natural resource scarcity will make it challenging to source clean water to the mounting population in future. This will lead to an increased reuse & recycling of wastewater and usage of desalination technologies. Ceramic membrane market will thus see a rising demand, as those processes will primarily need separation technology.
Ceramic membranes exhibit highly stable thermal, chemical and mechanical characteristics. The filtration systems with ceramic membranes result in generation of clearer potable water by eliminating turbidity and impurities including: protozoa and bacteria from well water as well as river systems. As of 2017, about 80% of wastewater goes back into the global ecosystem which is neither treated nor reused. On account of their bio-inertness and high abrasion resistance, ceramic membranes serve as supreme materials for many applications in pharmaceuticals, chemicals as well as wastewater processing. These membranes perform a significant role in purification of the drain of sewage plants, recycling of water from swimming pools, etc. and will observe significant demand in water treatment applications by 2025.
Ceramic membranes will also witness substantial potential in the food & beverage sector in future. The prevalent usage of the membranes in this sector include: sterilization of milk & whey, clarification of natural fruit juices and beer, separation and fractionation of milk ingredients, concentration of juice, dewatering of products, purification of drinking water, desalination of whey, etc. Increasing investments in food processing industries, particularly in Asia Pacific region will propel ceramic membrane market size over the forecast timespan. For instance, Cargill invested around USD 240 million in India’s food sector in November 2017. Symrise started its innovation center aimed at food and nutrition portfolio in Singapore in May 2017.
Global ceramic membrane industry growth will be hindered to some extent by factors such as: high initial capital and their heavy weight, as compared to polymeric membranes. However, long life of the product and the unique operational parameters such as: crystalline nature, porosity, etc. will support the market growth.
Ceramic membrane market can be classified based on product type into single channeled membranes and multi channeled membranes. These membranes have defined pore size, high permeability and high porosity which will make them desirable in a range of end-user applications. High flux rate along with higher operating temperature featured by multi channeled ceramic membranes will enhance the segment share by 2025.
Considering the applications, ceramic membrane market segmentation can be viewed as: food & beverage, chemical processing, metalworking, pulp and paper and others including: textiles, recycling & environmental, etc. Chemical processing is likely to be a leading segment in the overall ceramic membranes industry by 2025. The key applications in this area include: concentration of polymer suspensions, metal hydroxide solutions, separation of catalysts, recovery of pigments and dyes, desalination, cleaning & recycling of organic solvents, etc.
Asia Pacific region is poised to hold the highest share in the overall ceramic membrane market by 2025. Strong growth aspects in the regional manufacturing sector, higher economic growth rate will be key factors supporting the product demand in the region. Significant growth potential is probable in AESAN countries. For instance, in 2015, the Malaysian government announced the vision to rise its 95.5% population share, being served by clean & treated water, to 99% by 2020. The nation has also maintained a significant track record of securing private sector and foreign financing for achieving its infrastructural plans. Such trends will present brighter scope for ceramic membrane market growth in Asia Pacific by 2025.
Prominent industry players include: Aran GmbH, TAMI Industries, Lenntech B.V., Metawater Co., Ltd., Mantec Technical Ceramics Ltd., etc. Industry players have been investing in mergers and acquisitions to expand their global footprint. For instance, French ceramic membrane giant CTI-Orelis acquired Veolia Water Technologies’ CeraMem assets in November 2017.
