, Polymeric membrane holds the majority share in ultrafiltration membrane market

Date: 15 April 2020

According to a research report published by Azoth Analytics in March 2020, the Global Ultrafiltration Membrane Market was valued at USD 5,315.56 Million in the year 2019. The market is driven by factors such as rapidly growing dairy industry, regulations for water safety & filtration, efficiencies offered by membrane filtration technology, and rising demand for premium products. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing Ultrafiltration membrane market, owing to increasing usage of membrane filtration in water processing plants for purification and in the dairy and food industries for pasteurization, sterilization, and concentration processes.

The Asia Pacific ultrafiltration membrane market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is because emerging Asian countries are a hub for pharmaceutical research and development. With their low-cost manufacturing advantage, China and India are regarded as the most profitable manufacturing and R&D locations, which will propel the market growth rate.

The use of membrane technologies in the food and beverage industry gives advantages such as food safety, ease of cleaning and sterilization, and environmental friendliness. They allow for a simplification of the process flow sheets avoiding steps that are more complex or cause of chemical stress for the products.

Among the material segment in the Ultrafiltration Membrane market, Polymeric membrane holds the majority share, owing to their growing application among several end users and their lesser price. Although inorganic membranes, ceramics are more expensive than organic polymeric membranes but they possess advantage over polymers like temperature stability, resistance towards solvents, well-defined stable pore structure, and the possibility for sterilization, due to which they are growing with faster rate.

For industrial water users, Ultrafiltration membrane will see increased application as part of the ultrapure water-making process required in power plants, semiconductor manufacture and other industries. UF's ability to treat used process water for recycling within the plant will add to market growth. Moreover, the purification of various chemicals used by many manufacturing industries also will be backing the UF membrane market growth.
