Dallas, Texas -- 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 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.
