Ultrafiltration is a membrane filtration process, wherein hydrostatic pressure forces a liquid against a semi-permeable membrane. Suspended solids and solutes of high molecular weight are retained, while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the membrane. It is used to remove all colloidal particles from water and some of the largest dissolved contaminants. In general, membrane pores range in size from 0.005 to 0.1 micron.

Rise in population and expansion of industries across the globe are boosting the demand for water. This, in turn, is driving the need for ultrafiltration in water & wastewater treatment. Additionally, growth in awareness among the people about water-borne diseases is projected to be a major factor augmenting the market. Increase in demand for ultrapure water in food & beverages and health care industries is also fueling the global ultrafiltration market. However, high capital cost is a prominent factor that is expected to hamper the global market.

The global ultrafiltration market can be segmented based on type, module, application, and region. In terms of type, the market can be bifurcated into polymeric ultrafiltration and ceramic ultrafiltration. The polymeric ultrafiltration segment dominated the global market in 2017 primarily due to its easy availability and cost-efficiency. Ceramic ultrafiltration is estimated to be a rapidly growing segment of the market owing to the high porosity, high permeability, and good mechanical properties. Based on module, the global ultrafiltration market can be divided into plate & frame, tubular, hollow fiber, and others. The hollow fiber segment dominated the global market in 2017, led by its high throughput and ease of cleanliness vis-à-vis other ultrafiltration modules.

In terms of application, the global ultrafiltration market can be segregated into municipal treatment and industrial treatment. Municipal treatment dominates the application segment of the market. The ultrafiltration technology has been in usage for municipal water treatment applications since 1960. Industrial treatment is projected to be a rapidly growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Expansion of industries across the globe, particularly in India, China, Brazil, and Mexico, is driving the market. Ultrafiltration is broadly used in food & beverage processing, chemical & petrochemical processing, and pharmaceutical processing.

In terms of region, the global ultrafiltration market can be classified into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific dominated the global ultrafiltration market in 2017. The market in the region is projected to expand at a fast-paced CAGR during the forecast period. Water is a basic necessity for human existence and industrial development. However, water contamination is a major issue in the Asia Pacific region due to environmental degradation, soil erosion, occasional floods, and increase in pollution levels. Hence, availability of clean water has been declining. Demand for water treatment has been increasing in the Asia Pacific region. This is boosting the overall ultrafiltration market. China, India, and Japan are major countries in the Asia Pacific region. In terms of revenue, North America and Europe are also expected to contribute significantly to the market during the forecast period. High purity standards and presence of stringent regulations regarding drinking water in these regions are augmenting the ultrafiltration market.

Major companies operating in the global ultrafiltration market are DowDuPont Inc., Hyflux Ltd., Inge GmbH, Toray Industries, Inc., GE Water & Process Technologies, Hydranautics, Pentair plc, SUEZ, WesTech Engineering, Inc, Koch Membrane Systems, Evoqua Water Technologies LLC, Pall Corporation, and Dynatec Systems, Inc.
