Global RO Membrane Market to Grow at a CAGR of 7.3% over the Period 2014-2019; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global RO Membrane Market 2015-2019” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2015 -- The Global Reverse Osmosis Membrane market was valued at US$1.2 billion in 2014. The growth of the market is mainly driven by the increasing global demand for cheap and efficient water treatment solutions. In 2014, most of the market share was held by the EMEA region. The market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.3 percent during the period 2014–2019.

Reverse Osmosis is a technology that uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove dissolved salts or organic molecules. The water is pushed under pressure through the membrane, which allows the passage of water molecules but prevents the dissolved salts and bacteria to pass through. A high-pressure pump is used to apply the required pressure for carrying out the process, and depends on the salt concentration of the feed water. The semi-permeable membrane used for the process is primarily made up of two materials: cellulose acetate and an aromatic polyamide. In addition, the RO membranes can be categorized into - asymmetric membranes and thin film composite membranes. While asymmetric membranes contain one polymer, the thin film composite membranes contain two or more layers of polymers.

The report is segmented by geographical regions into the APAC region, the EMEA region, and the Americas. The end-users mentioned in this report include the Municipal sector, Industrial sector, and others.

According to the report, the most important factor driving the market growth is the need for safe drinking water. This in turn has spurred the need for recycling waste or salt water, which requires the use of water treatment processes such as water desalination

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is membrane fouling. The membranes used in the RO process are exposed to various chemicals and other impurities. This causes membrane fouling which reduces the effectiveness of membranes.
