The global market for Membrane Separation Technologies is projected to reach US$29.2 Billion by 2024, driven by the increasing demand for clean water, commodification of water and stringent regulations related to wastewater treatment. With water achieving the status of a tradable commodity, water desalination and purification are growing in prominence thus benefiting growth in the market. Receding water tables, groundwater pollution, and the ensuing water scarcity and shortage are forcing authorities to treat brackish water, wastewater, seawater, and municipal wastewater. Thus water re-use is emerging into a major factor driving demand in the market. The market also stands poised to benefit from the rapid replacement of traditional methods of separation such as distillation, flocculation, sedimentation and extraction by membrane filtration in industrial sectors such as chemical industries, food, dairy, biotechnology and bio-refineries. Falling costs, green environmental characteristics, and safety are fueling adoption rates in the market. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 9.8% through the analysis period, driven by growing population, rapid industrialization and the need for potable and clean water; growing stringency of water safety and industrial effluent regulations; spiraling water scarcity issues and the resulting demand for cost-effective approaches to reclaim water via wastewater remediation.
