Membrane Technology for Liquid and Gas Separations

The combined U.S. market for membranes used in gas and liquid separating applications was worth approximately $2.2 billion in 2013. The market is expected to increase from nearly $2.4 billion in 2014 to about $3.5 billion by 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% during the five-year period from 2014 to 2019.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the market for membrane technology for liquid and gas separations, with examination of the global activities due to the international presence of many industry participants.
  • Analyses of market trends, with data from 2002 through 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of CAGRs through 2019.
  • Information on applications for membrane technology for liquid and gas separations, including potable water, process water, and wastewater treatment; food and beverage processing; biopharmaceuticals production; other large-scale liquid separations; and industrial gas separation.
  • Coverage of technologies including reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, electrochemical processes, gas separation, pervaporation, and others.
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the industry.

REPORT SCOPE

SCOPE OF REPORT

This report is primarily a study of the U.S. market, but due to the international presence of many industry participants, global activities are included where appropriate. Values are given in U.S. dollars. Forecasts are in constant U.S. dollars and growth rates are compounded. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles and competitive technologies are included in the study. Only industrial-scale membrane products will be evaluated. No consumer products (i.e., point-of-use water systems) are included in the analysis.
