Membrane Microfiltration Market Research, 2030
The global membrane microfiltration market size was valued at $3,772.70 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $8,849.50 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2021 to 2030. Microfiltration is a low-pressure separation strategy that utilizes membranes with large pore sizes. Microfiltration filters can be produced from both organic and inorganic materials, such as polymer-based membranes and ceramic or stainless steel. Microfiltration membranes have the largest open pore diameters ranging from 0.1 to 10m. It can separate large suspended particles such as particulates, colloids, bacteria, and lipids while allowing proteins, carbohydrate, salts, and low molecular weight molecules to flow through.
The membrane microfiltration market will increase in the coming years owing to rise in pharmaceutical and biotech companies. They have propelled the market demand for sterile surroundings and contamination-free surfaces. Moreover, the microfiltration industry has expanded due to the removal of microfibers from textile wastewater. Furthermore, microfiltration device sales have increased as the need for wastewater treatment has grown in various regions. Market demand for microfiltration techniques and equipment has grown as a result of government limitations on filtration processes and environmental concerns. In addition, growth in health awareness among costumers has resulted in surge in demand for membrane microfiltration in food & beverage sectors.
Microfiltration is a physical separation procedure for removing pollutants from process fluids such as suspended particles, lipids, and microorganisms. Microfiltration can be utilized alongside other membrane technologies such as ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and nanofiltration.
Furthermore, key players have expanded their filtration solution process by acquiring other companies and strengthening their market position. For instance, in December 2020, Sartorius Stedim Biotech acquired WaterSep BioSeparations, a filtering specialist. WaterSep BioSeparations designs, produces, and sells hollow fiber membrane devices as well as pre-sterilized devices for biopharmaceutical applications both downstream and upstream.
The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted production of many products in the membrane microfiltration market, owing to lockdowns. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases is expected to reduce in the future as the vaccine for COVID-19 is introduced in the market. This has led to the reopening of membrane microfiltration companies at their full-scale capacities. This is expected to help the market recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases begin to decline, equipment & machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.
The membrane microfiltration market is segmented on the basis of filtration mode, material, end user, and region. In terms of filtration mode, the market is divided into cross-flow, direct-flow, and others. By material, the market is bifurcated into organic and inorganic. On the basis of end user, the market is categorized into hospitals & laboratories, pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical companies, food & beverage, water & wastewater treatment, and others.
