Membrane Polymers Market Overview On Demanding Applications 2031

Posted by Divakar on April 21st, 2021

Overview of Membrane Polymers Market:

Membrane polymers are used in the filtration process of water, gas or liquid by applying microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. Reverse Osmosis is a well-known process for the filtration of water that separates ions, large particles and unwanted molecules. Membrane polymers are used in manufacturing, hospitals, water purifiers, gas purifiers and the electrical & electronics industry. In gas filtration membrane polymers are used to filter out CO2, H2, which is used as hydrogen fuel in vehicles.

Furthermore, the most common polymers used in synthesis of membrane polymers are cellulose acetate owing to its rich inherent characteristics and superior functionality than other membrane polymers. In addition, membrane polymers offers low binding affinity and separated molecules and are able to endure harsh cleaning circumstances.

Based on product type, membrane polymers are classified as spiral wound module and hollow fiber module. Hollow fiber membrane polymers requires less medium and growth factor than traditional cell culture systems like stirred tank bioreactor. Most of manufacturing companies are demanding for hollow fiber membrane polymers for supplementing demand for hallow fiber bioreactors which is used in manufacturing of cell derived products.

Membrane polymers are used in the water filtration process. Membrane polymers are used in industries, to purify water for their general purpose use. In recent years demand for water purifier has increased along with companies using water purifier, which is leading towards increase in demand for membrane polymers. Reverse Osmosis process of membrane polymers is mainly used in dairy products and is projected for rapid increase during the forecast period.

Moreover, oil & gas industry is one of the potential growing market as an end use. This industry uses gas separation membrane polymers and gas & vapour permeation membrane polymers for separating mixed gases. Further, in automotive industry manufacturing of electric vehicles requires membrane polymers for filtration of hydrogen fuel which is used as alternative for petrol and diesel vehicles.

Membrane polymers have broadened their scope owing to the steady demand from various end use industries. Membrane polymers offers various advantages including simple flowsheet, high selectivity for components, environmental friendly and others. Thus, the aforementioned factors is poised to drive the global membrane polymers market with a single digit CAGR over forecast period.

Covid-19 Impact on Membrane Polymers Market:

The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has shown drastic changes in lifestyles and has forced countries to implement stringent measures like lockdown and strict social distance on a global scale. Except for the medical and life support products, most of the industries have been greatly affected with membrane polymers market positing deep plunge in its growth in 2020.

Upon resumption of activities and government regulations for health & hygiene, demand for membrane polymers increased as people started taking cognizance of their health and opting for immunity boosting activities for improving their health.

Amid resumption of all activities, manufactures have increased manufacturing of water purifier with membrane polymers to meet surge in demand from drinking water management and distribution system. In addition to this membrane polymers market with respect to dairy products as end use verticals is mounting backed by increasing demand from ice-cream providers.

Furthermore, hospitals utilizes membrane polymers to keep air clean for patient and worker safety. This has posited membrane polymers with ample market opportunities during pandemic period and cushioned the market growth.
