Membrane Technology For Liquid And Gas Separations



This report provides:

  • An overview of the U.S. market for membrane technology for liquid and gas separations, with examination of the global activities due to the international presence of many industry participants
  • Analyses of market trends, with data from 2011, estimates for 2012, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2017
  • Discussion of industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, and competitive technologies
  • Evaluations of industrial-scale membrane products only; no consumer products (i.e., point-of-use water systems) are included in the analysis
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players.


This BCC Research report provides an in-depth analysis of the market for membrane technology across a range of filtration types and applications. Covered technologies include reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, electrochemical processes, gas separation, pervaporation, and two novel processes. Applications for these filtration types include potable water, process water, and wastewater treatment; food and beverage processing; biopharmaceuticals production; other large-scale liquid separations; and industrial gas separation.

Technical and market drivers are considered in evaluating the current worth of the technologies covered, and in forecasting growth and trends over the next five years. The conclusions are illustrated with statistical information on markets, applications, industry structure, and dynamics, along with technological developments.

This study is intended for individuals requiring an in-depth analysis of the membrane industry that traces significant developments and forecasts important trends, quantifies the various market sectors, and highlights companies active in those areas.

Because of the diverse and fragmented nature of the industry, it is difficult to find studies that gather such extensive data from far-reaching resources, and have this data presented in one comprehensive document. This report contains a unique collection of membrane-related information, analyses, forecasts, and conclusions that are very hard (or impossible) to find elsewhere.


This report is primarily a study of the U.S. market, but due to the international presence of many industry participants, global activities are included where appropriate. Values are given in U.S. dollars. Forecasts are in constant U.S. dollars and growth rates are compounded. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles, and competitive technologies are included in the study. Only industrial scale membrane products will be evaluated. No consumer products (i.e., point of use water systems) are included in the analysis.


The information sources for this study include online research; SEC filings; annual reports; company brochures; patent literature; business, technical and industry journals; conference literature; and interviews with principals in the industry. Statistical and other data also were collected from the U.S. Department of Commerce, the American Membrane Technology Association, the International Desalination Association, the American Water Works Association, the Water Environment Research Federation, the WateReuse Foundation, the Water Resources Institute, the MBR-Network, and various academic institutions.
