Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/01/2018 -- Global Spiral Membranes Market: Introduction
Spiral membranes are filtration elements that are widely used in both commercial and industrial applications. A spiral membrane is designed for use in cross-flow filtration. This design consists of a pleated membrane which is folded around a permeate tube or a similar spiral. Spiral membranes are significantly used for handling highly concentrated solutions. Basically, a spiral membrane is a selective barrier that allows certain molecules to pass through while acting as a barrier for certain other molecules. Spiral membranes are significantly employed in water filtration.

Global Spiral Membranes Market: Overview
The global spiral membranes market can be segmented in terms of polymer type, technology, end-use industry, and region. Based on polymer type, the global spiral membranes market has been classified into polyamide, polystyrene (PS) & polyethersulfones (PES), fluoropolymers, and others. Among these, polyamide is projected to be the leading segment during the forecast period, owing to easy availability of polyamides and their cost being lower than that of other polymers. In terms of technology, the global spiral membranes market can be categorized into reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF), ultrafiltration (UF), and microfiltration (MF). Reverse osmosis is the most preferred spiral membranes technology, as it is being increasingly used in water purification systems. Moreover, reverse osmosis is widely being employed in desalination and industrial effluent applications. All these factors fuel the RO segment. Based on end-use industry, the global spiral membranes market can be divided into water & wastewater treatment, food & beverages, pharmaceutical & biotechnology, chemical & petrochemical, oil & gas, and others. The water & wastewater treatment segment has been sub-divided into desalination, public utility water treatment, and wastewater recycle. The water & wastewater treatment segment holds a major share of the market. This is attributable to growth of urban population that increases the demand for safe and clean water.
Global Spiral Membranes Market: Trends & Developments
Stringent government regulations and mandatory sustainability toward environmental safety are key factors fueling the spiral membranes market. Additionally, recent developments in the global spiral membranes market and the need to minimize energy consumption in the chemical processing industry augment the demand for spiral membranes. However, high operational and maintenance costs of spiral membranes hamper the global spiral membranes market. Nevertheless, increasing population and growing urbanization in developing economies create new opportunities for growth of the global spiral membranes market.
Global Spiral Membranes Market: Regional Outlook
Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global spiral membranes market between 2018 and 2026, due to rise in the demand from developing economies in the region such as China and India.
