Reverse osmosis (RO) membrane is a material with tiny pores that excludes dissolved salts and molecules from sea or brackish water. RO is the most economical and practical way for purification & treatment of water. The RO membrane is delicate and expensive, hence needs protection. Since its discovery, there has been progressive improvement in the membranes and development of means for packaging them. As a result, present day RO plants are compact & simple to operate, and there is no phase change required.

Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing market for RO membrane. The RO market is expected to register substantial growth in the near future, attributed to huge population in developing economies of the region. Other factors that drive the market are high-growth application areas such as seawater desalination systems and RO purification systems along with stringent regulations due to increased concerns over safe drinking water. Rapid industrialization and continuous rise in infrastructure has contributed immensely towards water pollution, which will drive the need for water purification and hence indirectly creating opportunity for the market players. However, factors such as high cost of membrane may restrict the market growth in the coming years.

The report segments the RO membrane market by material type, filter module, end-use industry & application, and geography. On the basis of material type, the market is segmented into cellulose-based membranes and thin film composite membranes. According to the filter module, the market is classified into the plate & frame, tubular-shaped membranes, spiral-wound membranes, and hollow-fiber membranes. On basis of end user and application, the market is divided into desalination systems and RO purification systems. Geographic breakdown and deep analysis of each of the previously mentioned segments is included for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Further advancement in the market includes discovery of the fact that innovations in feed spacer technology lead toward enhanced RO element performance by Conwed Plastics & LANXESS' Liquid Purification Technologies in a co-research project in July 2016. Another milestone is development of an inexpensive, solar-powered water treatment system for Indian villages by MIT scientists in Boston in July 2016.

Comprehensive competitive analysis and profiles of major market players such as Toray Industries, Inc., LG Chem, Hydranautics (A Nitto Denko Group Company), DOW Water & Process Solutions, Toyobo Co., Ltd., Lanxess AG, Koch Membrane Systems, Inc., GE Water & Process Technologies, Trisep Corporation, and Membranium (RM Nanotech) is also provided in this report.
