Hollow fiber membrane technology is gaining quick acceptance globally as it caters to wide range of applications in food, pharma, dairy, biotech, chemicals and sweeteners and other allied industries. Membrane technology can produce very specific separations at ambient or low temperatures without any phase change which makes it a cost-effective solution than conventional methods such as rotary vacuum filtrations. These filtration process is pressure driven technology with pores ranging from 100 molecular weight to about 5 microns. The various technologies include in this type of membrane filtration are microfiltration, ultrafiltration & reverse osmosis. Microfiltration (MF) is a low-pressure filtration technology which is used for separating large molecular weight suspended compounds from dissolved solids. It is used in water treatment, dairy & milk product industry, cell harvesting & syrup industries, beer & wine processing industries. Ultrafiltration (UF) is used in handling low molecular weight compounds such as salts, minerals etc. UF finds application in industrial waste water treatment, municipal, food & beverages, paper & pulp manufacturing, oil & gas among others, Reverse osmosis (RO) process is a high-pressure energy efficient process used in handling drinking water. Rise in demand of fresh drinking water, ever growing population, increased government regulations will drive the demand of hollow fiber membranes market.

However, use of other methods of membranes filtration such as plate & frame, spiral wound and tubular forms for same end use applications are some of the factors that can restraint the market from its full growth.

Hollow fiber membrane filtration is a cost-effective technology to filter large volumes. These fibers made from various polymers and ceramics can be manufactured in different diameters and sizes depending upon applications. They offer high versatility in handling clean ground water to very polluted waste water. The fiber materials used generally depend upon the end user application. Polymer constitutes about 85-90% of the total market while rest consists of ceramic. Ceramic membranes are used when polymers can no longer fit to the applications especially in biotech & pharmaceuticals.

The hollow fiber membranes market is highly fragmented by number of small- & large-scale manufacturers. Among them, Polymem is a global leader in membranes and modules made from hollow fiber. Polymem along with Arkema has developed a PVDF membrane which caters to wide range of challenging applications. Other major players include Toyobo Japan, Pent Air, Kolon Industries, Asahi Kasei, Atec Innovations GmbH, Evonik Industries, Toray, Dow-Dupont, Koch Membranes among others.
