Demand for membranes in the US is expected to increase 7.7 percent per year to $5.4 billion in 2016, driven by water and wastewater regulations. Polymeric membranes will remain the dominant material. Microfiltration membranes will continue as the largest product segment, while reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration membranes will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $3.7 billion US membrane industry, with forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material (e.g., polymeric, ceramic), type (e.g., microfiltration, reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, pervaporation, nanofiltration) and market (e.g., water and wastewater treatment, food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical and medical uses, chemical processing, industrial gas processing).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market shares and profiles 38 industry players, including Pall, General Electric and Millipore.
