Drivers & Restraints-
Rising Environmental Concerns to Accelerate Growth
Rapid industrialization and urbanization, especially in the developing countries is resulting in water pollution. Therefore, the strain on water resources is surging. The governments and regulatory bodies of several countries are implementing stringent norms and laws regarding industry discharge to control water pollution. The increasing environmental concerns have thus, compelled large portion of the industries to adopt membrane-based technology for curbing the level and severity of pollutants in their discharge streams. They are presently trying to comply with the regulations. Membranes play a vital role in providing zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It is helping the industries in lowering the environmental impact. However, fouled membrane can have harmful effects on its operations. This factor may obstruct the membranes market growth during the forthcoming years.
Water & Wastewater TreatmentSegment to Grow Rapidly Backed by Evolution of Technology
Based on application, the market is divided into gas separation, food & beverage, water & wastewater treatment, and others. Amongst these, the water & wastewater treatment segment held 45.9% membranes market share in 2019. Membranes were mainly developed owing to the sole purpose of water & wastewater treatment. Later, as the technology evolved, they found their application in a wide range of industries consisting of biomedical, pharmaceutical, and food & beverage. The emergence of membrane purification technologies has proved to be promising by meeting the urgent need for portable water.
Various Planned Desalination Projects in India & China to Favor Growth in Asia Pacific
Geographically, Asia Pacific procured USD 2,382.47 million in 2019 in terms of revenue. This growth is attributable to the major contributions of countries, such as Australia, India, Japan, and China. Japan is considered to be one of the largest producers of membranes globally. Several planned desalination projects in India and China are set to boost the growth of the market in this region. Chennai in India, for instance, houses two desalination plants. Each has a capacity of 100 million litres per day (MLD). The third plant is set to begin operations in 2021. Europe is in the second position owing to the contributions of Italy, Spain, France, and Germany.
