Microfiltration Membrane Market: Overview
Microfiltration membrane is defined as a membrane that removes contaminants or suspended particles from a fluid (liquid or gas) through a special pore-sized membrane. The size of the pores in the microfiltration membrane determines the extent to which the dissolved particles and microorganisms can be removed. Thus, membranes with pore size of 0.1-10 µm are considered ideal membranes that perform microfiltration. Microfiltration membrane works on the principle of physical separation. Microfiltration membranes are available in several diameters and pore sizes, and are made up of different polymers.
Microfiltration Membrane Market: Drivers & Restraints
Technological innovations in membrane microfiltration and growth in biopharmaceutical and processed food industries are augmenting the microfiltration membrane market. Rise in awareness about water quality is also propelling the microfiltration membrane market. Additionally, easing need for wastewater treatment and water desalination processes are estimated to drive the microfiltration membrane market. However high initial investment is projected to hamper the microfiltration membrane market during the forecast period.
Microfiltration Membrane Market: Key Segments
Based on material, the microfiltration membrane market can be bifurcated into organic and inorganic. The organic segment can be further classified into fluorinated polymers, cellulosic, polyamide, and others, while the inorganic segment can be broken down into ceramic and metal & alloys.
In terms of filtration mode, the microfiltration membrane market can be divided into cross-flow, direct flow, and others. The cross-flow segment accounts for major share of the microfiltration membrane market in terms of volume owing to the increase in demand for cross-flow filtration in various industries.
Based on type of filter, the microfiltration membrane market can be segregated into cellulose acetate membrane filters, cellulose nitrate membrane filters, polycarbonate membrane filters, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane filters, nylon membrane filters, and others.
In terms of end-use industry, the microfiltration membrane market can be segmented into food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, bio-pharmaceuticals, dairy, industrial water & waste water treatment, and others.
