Report Highlights

  • The market for ultrafiltration will rise at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 9.7% from $458 million in 2002 to $727 million in 2007.
  • Profitable new applications are developing in separations needed for neutraceuticals manufacture, a rapidly growing sector.
  • The phase-out of reusable dialyzers, increased use of more expensive synthetic membranes and an expanding patient population should continue to grow the dialysis market.
  • Potable water production potentially is a very large market for UF membranes Municipal wastewater recycling, using UF, is gaining attention for nonpotable reuse in irrigation and groundwater recharge; the notion that treated wastewater can be recycled as potable also is advancing.
