Ion exchange membranes are semipermeable membranes in which an ionic functionality is fixed to the backbone of the membrane. These ionic species permit the separation, concentration, or exclusion of ionic types from a fluid flow. There are two types of ion exchange membranes available in the market: anionic and cationic. Ion exchange membranes are used for a varied range of industrial procedures.
The global ion exchange membrane market is driven by growth in awareness for water and wastewater treatment and need of selective separation to meet water quality standards. In addition, the sustainability policies related to the environment and stringent government regulations supplement the market growth. However, high capital requirement hampers this growth. Growth in demand from emerging nations presents a major opportunity for market growth. The major growth challenge faced by this market is increasing the membrane lifespan.
The global ion exchange membrane market is segmented based on charge, material, structure, application, and geography. Based on charge, it is divided into cation, anion, amphoteric, bipolar, and mosaic. Based on material, it is classified into hydrocarbon, perfluorocarbon, inorganic, composite, and partially halogenated membranes.
Heterogeneous and homogenous are the two structures included in this report.
