Report Highlights

The global market for microfiltration (MF) membranes is expected to reach $1.6 billion in 2013. The market is expected to grow to $2.6 billion in 2018 for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0%.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global market for microfiltration (MF) membrane products, including modules, capsules, cartridges, and cassettes
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2010, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018
  • Examination of MF membrane products by the major applications of the technology: food and beverage processing, biopharmaceuticals manufacture, potable water production, wastewater treatment, industrial processes, and semiconductor fabrication
  • Statistics on markets, applications, industry structure, and dynamics along with technological developments
  • Information on the global market as applied to liquid separations; analysis will not include membranes in the MF pore-size range for air and/or gas separations, or for nonseparating applications such as technical textiles or diagnostic kits
  • Discussion of pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, and competitive technologies
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the industry.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This report examines the market for MF membrane products as reflected by the major applications of the technology: food and beverage processing, biopharmaceuticals manufacture, potable water production, wastewater treatment, industrial processes and semiconductor fabrication.  Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value.  Industry structure, membrane applications and trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles and competitive technologies are included in the study.

The report is a study of the global market as applied to liquid separations.  Analysis will not include membranes in the MF pore size range for air and/or gas separations, or for nonseparating applications such as technical textiles or diagnostic kits.  Medical devices based on MF membranes will not be addressed either.  Values are given in U.S. dollars; forecasts are made in constant U.S. dollars, and growth rates are compounded.  Sales of “membranes” refer to the sale of membranes packaged as modules, capsules, cartridges, cassettes or other devices in which the membranes are “housed.”  Pressure vessels, housings, pumps, piping, controls or other system components are not included in the market values.

Report Highlights

  • The global market for microfiltration membrane products used in liquid separations is estimated at $1.2 billion in 2010. It will rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8% during the next 5 years to reach $1.8 billion in 2015.
  • Biotech/bioprocessing/pharmaceutical applications will experience the most rapid growth. This market is worth $622 million in 2010 and is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.3% to reach $1 billion in 2015.
  • The value of the 2010 market for microfiltration elements in producing potable water is estimated to reach $232 million by year’s end.  By 2015, market size is expected to rise to $296 million, reflecting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5%.

Report Highlights

  • The global market for microfiltration (MF) membranes used in liquid separations is estimated at $792 million in 2005 and rising at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 9.4% during the next five years, much more rapidly than predicted world GDP growth (3% to 4%), but not as rapidly as the world market for some other membrane types, such as reverse osmosis (RO) (10.3%).
  • Large potential MF markets are in wastewater treatment, and sales of MBRs using MF modules are a rapidly growing membrane application. Growth in the segment stems from interest in treating wastewater to produce high quality water for discharge or recycling and, in industry, for reclaiming process water.
  • MF is gaining market share for the cold filtration of beer and microbial stabilization of wine. The growing unpopularity of diatomaceous earth for filtering beer has created strong interest in membrane technology.
