Membrane chemicals are used in reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration and nanofiltration membranes to prevent the damages caused by scalants, foulants, microbes and other contaminants present in the feed water. Different categories of membrane chemicals include antiscalants, cleaners and pre-treatment chemicals. These chemicals are used for different functions throughout the membrane separation process. Apart from these three categories of membrane chemicals, preservative chemicals are also used occasionally to prevent membranes from drying up, while they are not functional. Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes requires all the types of membrane chemicals due to their small pore size, whereas ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes generally employ commodity chemicals and pre-treatment chemicals for cleaning and maintenance. The major factors boosting market growth include expansion of membrane based desalination capacities and growth in other major end user industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food & beverage, etc. With the advent of shale oil & gas production, the potential market for membranes has expanded, particularly in the United States, Canada and China. Shale oil & gas production utilizes huge quantities of water for fracturing of oil or gas reserves, thereby increasing demand for efficient and effective process water and wastewater treatment procedures.
According to the report “Global Membrane Chemicals Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2019”, the global membrane chemicals market revenues are expected to grow by two folds by 2019 exhibiting a CAGR of 13% during 2014-19. Globally, membrane chemicals market is expected to be led by Asia-Pacific due to increasing membrane based desalination capacity, enforcement of government regulations for water and wastewater treatment, and shift towards membrane technology from conventional methods of separation. In North America, the growth is expected to be primarily driven by technological advancements and use of high valued chemicals based on nanotechnology and biodegradable raw materials. Along with industrial use, membrane based desalination technology is gaining ground in countries like GCC countries, China, United States, Australia, India, Singapore and Spain. In the Middle East, preference is still being given to thermal desalination plants due to abundant energy resources. In other regions of the globe, membrane desalination method is being employed more often. Global desalination industry is expected to witness a CAGR of more than 9% during 2013-18, which is one of the most important application areas for membrane chemicals. “Global Membrane Chemicals Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2019” report elaborates following particulars:
