Global Microfiltration Membranes Markets Report 2022-2027: Asia-Pacific to Offer Attractive Opportunities with India Recording the Highest Growth Rate

Dublin, July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Microfiltration Membranes Market by Type (Fluorinated Polymers, Cellulosic, Polysulfones, Ceramic), Filtration Mode, Applications (Water Treatment, Food & beverage, Biopharmaceutical Processing, Chemical) & Region - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global microfiltration membranes market size is projected to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2027 from USD 1.2 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 8.9%

The market is driven by various factors such as growing demand for clean water, water scarcity, and high-quality effluents by advanced wastewater treatment technology. Moreover, high potential in emerging economies in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa regions, owing to rising population and industrialization is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Fluorinated polymers accounted for the largest share amongst other material types in the microfiltration membranes market

Microfiltration membranes are broadly classified as organic (polymeric) and inorganic (ceramic) based on the material used.

Polymeric membranes are the majorly commercialized membranes. Fluorinated polymers account for the largest market share of the total market. Fluorinated polymers are largely used to construct microfiltration membranes owing to their high chemical resistance and high mechanical strength.

Cross Flow filtration mode segment is the largest and fastest-growing segment amongst filtration modes in the microfiltration membranes market

Microfiltration membranes market is segmented into direct flow and cross-flow based on the filtration mode.

In direct flow filtration mode, some particles accumulate on the membrane surface, which requires periodic cleaning to maintain membrane performance. In cross-flow filtration mode, turbulence at the membrane surface reduces the chances of fouling on the membrane surface; which increases the membrane performance.

Water treatment to grow at the highest growth rate applications in the microfiltration membranes market during the forecast period

Based on application, the microfiltration membranes market is segmented into four segments: water treatment, biopharmaceutical processing, food & beverage, chemical, and others.

Water treatment accounts for the largest market share of microfiltration membranes market and is projected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is due to the stringent government regulations pertaining to wastewater treatment and the increasing demand for clean water.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow the fastest in the microfiltration membranes market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is the largest market for microfiltration membranes. This large market share is primarily attributed to increasing demand for microfiltration membranes in emerging economies, such as China, and India, which are witnessing rising industrialization and increasing awareness about water & wastewater treatment.

Moreover, government regulations pertaining to wastewater treatment and natural water resources sanitation management are expected to positively impact the microfiltration membranes market in Asia Pacific.
