Reverse Osmosis Membrane Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 - 2026

Report ID: GMI4379

Summary Methodology

Reverse Osmosis Membrane Market size will rapidly grow during the forecast period due to increasing expenditure on water treatment coupled with rising demand for clean drinking water. Reverse osmosis is the most practical and economical method for purification and water treatment. It is a pressure-driven separation method which uses the principle of crossflow filtration and a semi permeable membrane. The product is expensive and delicate and thus requires protection. These membranes acts as a barrier to inorganic as well as organic molecules and salts. It removes contaminants such as herbicides, pyrogens/endotoxins, antibiotics, pesticides/insecticides, nitrates, soluble salts, metal ions, etc.

Increasing level of contamination in the waterbodies has led to many concerns related to waterborne diseases worldwide. Increasing industrialization and further industrial development in both developing and developed countries has increased the disposal of industrial wastes comprising of pathogens and toxic chemicals in the waterbodies. It has resulted in increased level of pollutants on the surface of waterbodies and it pose looming threat to the health of surrounding populace. To avoid this situation, governments of many countries have significantly invested in water treatment for the installation of new and upgradation of existing facilities. In the last 59 years, the federal, state and local government in the U.S. spent over USD 2 trillion on capital infrastructure, maintenance and operations of water and wastewater utilities. In 2013, public expenditure on wastewater treatment and water supply was over USD 1.3 billion in Ireland. Reverse osmosis membranes plays a vital role in eliminating harmful pathogens from the water that pose threat to the human health. Thus, increasing expenditure on water treatment will prosper the reverse osmosis membrane market growth in near future.

Rising population level in the cities owing to rapid urbanization, economic development as well as improvement in living standard in developing countries has boosted the disposable income of the populace in these countries. People in these countries have started adopting healthy eating habits and lifestyle, which has increased the demand for clean drinking water, not only in residence, but also in workplaces, restaurants, etc. Further urbanization in developing economies is likely to boost the demand for water filtration, which in turn, will prosper the growth of the market in near future.

Based on type, global reverse osmosis membrane market is classified into cellulose-based and thin film composite. Thin film composite category is likely to witness substantial market share throughout the forecast timespan. These membranes comprises of three layers. Two base layers with asymmetric design consists of thin skin layer either charged polysulfone or polyamide deposited on the surface. The thin film a salt repelling layer and the two-base layers provide a porous structure, inducing strength for the entire membrane. The growth of this category will be majorly augmented by the extensive usage of this thin film composite reverse osmosis membranes in wastewater treatment systems.

Based on application, market is categorized into desalination system, home drinking water, commercial waters, industrial/municipal water and ultrapure water. Home drinking water application category is likely to witness substantial growth during the study period. It can be attributed to increasing demand for clean drinking water in residential sector, rising awareness about water-borne diseases, etc. Ultrapure water segment is likely to witness significant growth rate throughout the study period owing to the increasing requirement of ultrapure water for various industrial and medical applications.

North America region is likely to witness substantial reverse osmosis membrane market share throughout the forecast timespan. It can be ascribed to rising population in the region coupled with lack of portable water. Asia Pacific region is likely to witness significant growth rate throughout the forecast timespan. Rising population, increasing awareness regarding water-borne diseases, rapid industrialization are some of the factors that will augment the regional demand for product.

Key product manufacturers in global product market are The Dow Chemical Company, LG Chem, Hydranautics, Lanxess AG, Toray Industries Ltd, Toyobo Co Ltd, Koch Membrane System, Axeon Water Technologies, Membranium, Microdyn-Nadir GmbH, etc.
