Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry Set to Surpass US$8 Billion with Impressive 7.8% CAGR by 2028 | According to FMI Study

Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry

Future Market Insights (FMI), a prominent market intelligence firm, has released a comprehensive study projecting the Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry to achieve unprecedented growth, exceeding the US$8 billion milestone by 2028. This remarkable projection showcases a substantial increase from the industry’s estimated value of approximately US$3.8 billion in 2018, accompanied by a noteworthy decadal growth rate of 7.8%.

FMI’s in-depth research sheds light on the industry’s exceptional trajectory, attributing this phenomenal growth to various factors meticulously analyzed. One standout trend contributing to this surge is the widespread adoption of membrane microfiltration in the dairy sector.

The dairy industry, seeking innovative alternatives to traditional heat treatment, has witnessed a transformative shift with the incorporation of membrane microfiltration technology. This novel approach plays a pivotal role in extending the shelf life of dairy products by effectively reducing bacteria and preserving the authentic taste, marking a revolutionary step in product preservation methodologies.

While pasteurization, heat treatment, and sterilization have conventionally dominated the arena of milk preservation, the FMI study indicates a paradigm shift towards membrane microfiltration on a global scale. This underscores the technology’s significance as a key trend shaping the future landscape of the industry.

Increasing adoption of ceramic microfiltration membranes for cross-flow filtration in water plants is another key trend, as ceramic membranes help maintain a high filtration rate and ensure enhanced savings in membrane replacement costs.

Manufacturers in the Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry are producing robust microfiltration systems using large filter cartridges that occupy less space and eliminate the number of filtration system connections, thereby reducing maintenance costs.

A preference for continuous fermentation over batch processing is also being observed, with manufacturers increasingly deploying membrane microfiltration technology in their plants. These trends are likely to positively impact the revenue growth of the Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry in the coming years.

Increasing Applications in Industrial Biotechnology and Widespread Use of Large Molecule Biopharmaceuticals Pushing Revenue Growth of the Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry

Membrane microfiltration is finding application in the production of biofuel and biorefineries are incorporating this technology to lower overall energy costs and reduce industrial biowaste. Membrane microfiltration is also increasingly used in biodiesel processes where this technology is used to reuse water, especially in areas of water scarcity. The rising industrial applications of membrane microfiltration are fuelling revenue growth in the global market. Also, filtration is a critical component of biopharmaceutical production, and membrane microfiltration is widely used to remove cellular debris and other cellular colloids. With a growing adoption of large molecule biopharmaceuticals owing to their therapeutic properties, the demand for membrane microfiltration technology in the production of biopharmaceuticals is expected to surge shortly.

Membrane microfiltration is also extensively used in the food and beverages industry as a technology to separate and purify components and improve the quality and yield of food products. Increasing use in vegetable and fruit juices, fermented dairy products, milk and dairy products, non-alcoholic beverages, and other food and beverage products is expected to spur revenue growth of the Global Membrane Microfiltration Industry to a significant extent. One of the other critical application areas of membrane microfiltration is in water treatment plants. Membrane microfiltration helps remove unwanted particles from water before the water is treated for purity using other processes such as reverse osmosis. A growing need for quality potable water is further driving the growth of the membrane microfiltration market.
