Global Membrane Separation Technologies

This report forecasts to 2023 global demand for membranes by product, market, and major world region in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Product segments include: microfiltration; ultrafiltration; reverse osmosis; and other membranes such as nanofiltration, electrodialysis, and pervaporation. Reported markets encompass: water treatment; wastewater treatment; food and beverage processing; pharmaceutical and medical; and other markets such as chemical processing, commercial and consumer water treatment, and electronics processing. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, the Asia/Pacific region, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, product, market, and regional demand (including product and market segments) are provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

This report covers the global market for membranes, which are permeable surfaces with pore sizes of less than 10 micrometers. Only the membrane elements themselves are included in the scope of this report; membrane filtration units and other related equipment are excluded. Conventional particle filtration (i.e., filters with pore sizes greater than 10 micrometers) are also excluded.

Demand encompasses the sale of a membrane element from the manufacturer to distributors or end users. Additional markups due to the inclusion of the membrane in a larger system or from related services are excluded.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2018.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
