Filtering Out Growth Prospects in the $1.5 Billion Membrane Market

May 6, 2010 | State of the Market Report

Membrane-based water treatment is firmly entrenched in the growing desalination application area and is now springboarding into the drinking water and wastewater treatment domains that were historically dominated by chemical, biological, and basic filtration technologies. New technology developments are enabling membranes to infiltrate into key growth sectors within the hydrocosm including water recycling, industrial process water, cooling tower water, and the wastewater produced in oil and gas extraction. In this report we focus on the the value chain, innovations, drivers, and growth prospects of the four major membranes technologies – reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF), ultrafiltration (UF), and microfiltration (MF) – deployed in four applications that are in turn used in 11 market segments, including municipal wastewater recycling, industrial process water, and desalination, to uncover hidden opportunities within the sector.
