This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Membrane Filtration Technologies Market is growing at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period. Materials can be separated based on their molecular arrangement using membrane filtration technology. The most common techniques for performing membrane filtration are ultrafiltration, microfiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis. In areas with a shortage of water, demand for membrane filtration technology is also seen to be rising. It has been demonstrated that membrane separation can effectively treat waste water, saline water, and groundwater and can demineralize boiler feed water for reuse. Membrane filtration technologies are extensively used in the water treatment, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology sectors.

According to the WHO, “every year, more than 3.4 million people die as a result of water-related diseases, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world.

Market Dynamics:


Increase in demand from the food and beverage industries

The primary purpose of membrane filtration technology is to get rid of harmful microorganisms, and as a result, the demand for it has recently increased in food and beverage applications. The adoption of proactive food safety technologies has recently received more attention from food and beverage manufacturers as a result of the growing demand from consumers around the world for high-quality, secure, and value-added food products. The demand for membrane filtration is also being driven by the trend toward microfiltration, which is becoming more common in pharmaceuticals.


Need for a significant amount of raw materials

The production of membrane filtration requires a lot of raw materials. Supply and demand trends control the cost and availability of these necessary raw materials. There has been ongoing research into less expensive alternatives to conventional materials that can be used in water filtration, like alumina and zirconia. Transmembrane pressure increases power consumption, costs, and membrane life, all of which lead to higher maintenance expenses.


Growing demand from diary industry

With the help of ultrafiltration separation, whey protein powder with a protein concentration of 35% to 85% can be created. There are numerous dairy applications for ultrafiltration, including the production of fresh cheese, the standardization of cheese milk's protein content, the reduction of lactose in milk, and the decalcification of permeates and powders. Dairy producers' interest in UF is anticipated to fuel the market expansion for membrane filters in the near future.


Lack of awareness

Traditional purification and filtration methods, such as chemical or biological ones, are still used by manufacturers in the food processing industry. High efficiency and minimal food and beverage preparation are two benefits of membrane filtration technology. Furthermore, it reduces overall production costs and uses less energy than traditional methods. However, because manufacturers are unaware of these benefits, they continue to use conventional water filtration methods. This could limit the market during the forecast period.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a marginal impact on the market. Global trade, production, and logistical supply were severely disrupted by the pandemic. The industry was harmed by the imbalance between raw material supply and demand as well as a labor shortage. Additionally, factories that produced dairy products and other beverages were shut down during the pandemic. Brewers and manufacturers of beverage products have therefore put off buying or investing in machinery, including membrane filtration. As a result, there was little demand for membrane filtration technologies during the pandemic.

The tubular membrane segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

During the forecast period, the tubular membrane segment is anticipated to have the largest market size. Tube-like structures with porous walls are known as tubular membrane modules. These modules are typically used to process feed streams that contain high concentrations of dissolved solids, suspended solids, oil, grease, or fats. Additionally, they are also frequently used for water applications because they are very effective at removing impurities and creating high-quality processed water. The beverage industry uses this water extensively because it can be treated with a reverse osmosis system to produce high-quality fresh water.

The reverse osmosis segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

During the projection period, the reverse osmosis segment is expected to experience rapid growth. Reverse osmosis is a pressure-driven membrane process in which the natural osmosis process is turned around. Pores smaller than one nanometer in diameter are frequently used to identify these. Salts and small molecules are separated from low-molecular-weight solutes (typically less than 100 daltons) using membranes with NMWLs of 1 kDa or below at relatively high pressures. Reverse osmosis can effectively remove almost all organic and inorganic pollutants from water. The use of reverse osmosis membranes allows for the successful removal of radium, organic natural substances, pesticides, cysts, germs, and viruses. In addition to these, reverse osmosis also removes minerals like iron, lead, fluoride, salt, and others.

Region with largest share:

The food and beverage and water processing industries have a huge demand for sustainable filtration technology, which has resulted in a huge demand for membrane filtration in the Asia Pacific region, with China being the largest and India being the fastest-growing market. One of the key factors anticipated to fuel the demand for membrane filtration technology in this region is the rise in demand for dairy products, government support for membrane filtration technology in water purification, growth in middle-class consumers' purchasing power for high-quality goods, and an increase in the consumption of functional foods.

Region with highest CAGR:

During the forecast period, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to have the highest CAGR. The rapid expansion of industrialization, improvements in membrane technology, worsening environmental conditions, and decreasing access to clean water are the main drivers of market growth. According to information released by the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) on December 21, 2020, it is currently holding a 32% share of the global food industry while expanding at a rate of about 11%. The constantly growing food and beverage sector in the area is the reason for this high growth.
