Membranes Market Trends




  • Increasing demand for high-quality water in numerous industries is driving the market growth




The use of membrane systems is increasing to produce highly purified water for numerous applications as it helps to remove all small and large ions, colloids, organics, bacteria, and pyrogens from the feed water. The surge in demand for membrane systems is likely to result in increased demand for membrane chemicals to remove the impurities collected on the surface of membranes during operation and improve the performance of the membranes. This factor drives the Market CAGR in the forecast period.


Additionally, in setting up desalination plants for irrigation, with the increasing scarcity of water sources, farmers rely on brackish water for irrigational activities, affecting crop quality and deteriorating soil quality due to high saline content. This has resulted in a shift from brackish water to desalinated water, improving crop yield and reducing operational costs. Desalinated water is generated by processing the sea and brackish water using membrane technology which removes all harmful substances such as microorganisms, bacteria, other pollutants, and dissolved matter, including chlorides, sulfates, and silica. Additionally, desalinated water is also increasing for animal feeding, which has led to an increase in the number of desalination plants to meet all agricultural requirements worldwide. Thus, these factors drive the Membranes market revenue.


Membranes Market Segment Insights


Membranes Product Type Insights


Based on product type, the membrane market segmentation includes freac sand, resin-coated proppant, and ceramic proppant. The ceramic proppant dominated the market; the increasing demand for ceramic proppants can be attributed to their superior properties, such as high strength, high conductivity, and resistance to crushing and degradation.


Membranes ApplicationInsights
