By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Reverse Osmosis Membrane Market by Material Type, by End-Use Industry & Application, and by Region – Global Trends & Forecast to 2021” report to their offering.

The reverse osmosis membrane (RO) market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 5.00 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 15.75%, between 2016 and 2021.

High-growth application areas such as sea water desalination systems and RO purification systems and stringent regulations due to increased concerns over safe drinking water are the key factors driving the growth of the RO market.

The cellulose-based membranes are hydrophilic, pure cellulose acetate (CA) membrane filters, which are the lowest protein binding filters available, ideally suited for general filtration and biological/clinical analyses requiring maximum protein recovery. The cellulose membrane filters provide superior throughput and reduce the need for filter changes, effectively decreasing both cost and process times.

The RO membrane market has been segmented based on different applications such as Desalination Systems, RO Purification Systems, and Medical Devices. Desalination systems are the largest and fastest-growing application segments for RO membrane market. Desalination system helps in the removal of minerals and salt from sea and brackish water. Salt water is desalinated to produce fresh water that is suitable for human consumption. Larger desalination plants are being constructed to take advantage of economies-of-scale, which helps in reducing the unit cost of desalinated water.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region of the RO membrane market. The developing economies in the region with rapidly growing infrastructure create great opportunity for growth of RO membrane market. The presence of a large population in the region drives the demand for clean processed water. Additional awareness of water scarcity has influenced the demand for water reuse in water stressed areas. Governments and municipal authorities are increasingly waking up to the effects of environmental degradation on the economy.

The continuous rise in infrastructure and rapid industrialization has resulted in increased polluted water sources in the region. To tackle such issues, countries such as India and China are continuously implementing stringent regulations to protect the environment. Mandatory adherence of certain environmental standards by the national governments, especially in areas with water scarcity have influenced the demand for better water treatment technology including membrane separation technology.
