Global RO Membrane Chemicals Market to Witness Growth Acceleration During 2015-2025 : GE Water, AXEON, Lenntech, Kroff, Inc., Ecolab

Reverse osmosis membrane market segments based on material type, filter module, application, and region. On the basis of material type, the market is segmented into cellulose-based and thin film composite. According to the filter module, the market is classified into the plate & frame, tubular-shaped, spiral-wound, and hollow-fiber.

RO membrane chemicals are used to remove the hard salts, iron, minerals, colloidal, bacteria, and other microorganisms that get deposited on the surface of the membranes during the water purification process. Biocides and antiscalants, acid membrane cleaners, and alkaline cleaners are some of the key RO membrane chemicals used to prevent membrane fouling and membrane scaling caused by the substances.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology used primarily to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles from drinking water. The technology uses a semi-permeable membrane, which is made of cellulose or other material, to remove dissolved salts or organic molecules. RO membranes are used in applications such as desalination of seawater, brackish water treatment, wastewater recovery, and industrial water treatment. It is the most economical and practical method of purification and treatment of water.

Desalination systems is the largest segment of the RO membrane market.
Desalination systems are estimated to be the largest application segment in the RO membrane market in terms of value. This dominance is mainly due to the high demand for clean and freshwater worldwide, population growth, industrial development, pollution of natural water resources, and rapid climate change. Seawater desalination technology is reliable and designed for large-scale production of potable water, thus resolving the issues pertaining to water scarcity of many countries.

Thin film composite membrane is estimated to be the largest material type segment of the RO membrane market during the forecast period.

Based on material type, thin film composite membrane leads the market due to its significant flow rate per unit area that allows high filtration performance in municipal water treatment and desalination. Owing to the implementation of stringent government regulations regarding water discharge from industries and setting up of water reuse and recycling plants across the region, the demand for thin film composite membranes is expected to witness high growth.
