Spiral Membranes Market Analysis :
Spiral membrane is a tightly packed filter media in which permeable membrane is wrapped round a center core in a spiral style. The edges of the filter are sealed and closed with a spacer material for the flow of liquids. Owing to its compact nature and high membrane, its applications is ideal for high-flow liquids. Water to be filtered enters into the spiral membrane module from one end and filtration takes place when lower back pressure is applied to drive clean water through membrane surface. Spiral element includes membranes, feed spacers, permeate spacers, and a permeate tube. Purpose of a feed spacer is to provide area for water to flow between the membrane surfaces, and to allow uniform flow among the membrane leaves. Spiral membrane is extensively used throughout numerous industries, which include water & wastewater treatment, food & beverage, pharmaceutical & biotechnology, chemical & petrochemical, and oil & gas.
COVID-19 impact analysis
The novel coronavirus has created adverse effect on the food & beverages industry, as spiral membrane is commonly used in food and beverages. The worldwide lockdown has made the customers to stay home and consume homemade food. The customers are restricted to stay indoors to prevent the spread of the virus. This will reduce the growth of the food and beverages industry drastically. Moreover, the supply chain disruptions have created havoc for various manufacturers.
Market scenario analysis
Important factors driving the growth of the market are surge in demand from the food & beverage industry and developing applications in wastewater treatment. In addition, increase in adoption of spiral membrane, attributable to rise in focus of water & wastewater treatment and requirement of selective separation for meeting water quality requirements are important factors driving growth of the global spiral membrane market. Stringent compliances and guidelines from the government for the purification and processing amid growing issues for the environment are anticipated to boost the growth of the market. The shortage of pure water propels the reuse and treatment of wastewater, which contributes toward the increased demand for superior membrane technologies such as reverse osmosis and nanofiltration. However, high prices related to manufacturing equipment of spiral membrane is a primary aspect predicted to limit the growth of the spiral membrane market. Furthermore, excessive maintenance cost of spiral membrane is another issue predicted to hamper growth of the market during the forecast period.
The food & beverage industry to boost the market growth over the forecast period
The food & beverage industry constituted a huge proportion of the market over the past few years. The sector is projected to expand at a rapid pace throughout the forecast period. Spiral membranes are used for over 60% of applications in the food & beverage industry for whey protein concentration, lactose concentration, sugar & water purification, juice clarification, and wastewater treatment. Ultra & nano filtration are widely used in the manufacturing of high-quality juices. Ultra and nano filtration membranes can eliminate starch, pectin, proteins, and polyphenolic compounds. Microfiltration can be applied for the elimination of microorganisms.
Region wise, the global spiral membrane market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America.. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to continue to dominate the market throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to surge in demand for spiral membrane from numerous industry verticals, including water & wastewater treatment, chemical & petrochemical, oil & gas, pharmaceutical & biotechnology, and food & beverage within the region. North America and Europe are predicted to witness significant growth during the forecast period, due to increase in demand for selective separation technology of water treatment.
