Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane Market: Overview

Reverse osmosis is a widely used water treatment process that makes use of a partially permeable membrane to separate unwanted molecules, ions, or larger particles from water, thus effectively treating the water and making it safe for drinking. A partially permeable membrane or a semipermeable membrane is a synthetic or biological membrane made of polymers that will allow the passage of only certain types of ions or molecules through it. It can be seen as a filtering mechanism. The passage rate is dependent on many factors including concentration, pressure, and temperature of the solutes or molecules on either side of the surface where such membranes are used. It is also greatly impacted by the permeability index of the membrane for each solute.

For the membranes used for the reverse osmosis process, the influencing factor is the osmotic pressure which has to be overcome to let the membrane perform effectively. Reverse osmosis (RO) membranes can get rid of all types of suspended particles in the water including chemical and biological species like bacteria. It has found applications in the industrial water treatment process, for the production of mobile or portable eaters, and in residential homes as well.

Industry Dynamics:

Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane Market: Growth Drivers

  • Increasing prioritization of water treatment in industrial areas to drive market growth.

The global reverse osmosis (RO) membrane market is projected to grow owing to the rising need and subsequent emphasis on treatment water that is used in industrial settings. In such places, water is used extensively, especially in oil and ore refineries, thermoelectric power plants, hydroelectric dams, and manufacturing plants. These are some examples of industries or factories where water plays the main role in producing the final goods or services.

However, other corporate areas like airports, offices, and railway & bus stations to name a few require a constant supply of water. A single hour without a water supply can lead to undesired situations. Since the water demand is so high, it means that the consumption rate is high. As per estimates, an average of 10 barrels of water is required to produce one barrel of oil. This ratio is proof enough of the amount of water used by the oil industry. The water used remains unfit for further application and if it is let out in other non-contaminated sources of water like nearby seas or lakes, it can potentially pollute the area beyond repair. 

Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane Market: Restraints

  • Frequent clogging to restrict market expansion.

RO membranes act as filters which means that they are highly susceptible to frequent clogging. When RO membranes are clogged, they cannot function effectively and the major impact is on the flow of water which slows down considerably. Hence RO membrane is to be constantly monitored and changed to avoid such errors.

For instance, in residential applications, a typical fully functioning membrane will allow water to fill up in 2 to 3 hrs but in the case of a clogged membrane, the time duration may go up to 4 to 6 hrs. In such cases, RO membranes are recommended to be changed every 2 years.

Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane Market: Opportunities

  • Growing research & development to provide growth opportunities.

The global reverse osmosis (RO) market is anticipated to benefit from the increasing research & innovation for the development of new membrane types including material and methods of fabrication. Some of the new materials used to create RO membranes include polyphenylene, aromatic polyamides, hydrated metal oxides, and polybenzimidazole. Defining factors for the use of material to produce membranes are salt and water permeability. Different types of fabrication methods include extending the techniques for the asymmetric membrane to the new materials.

Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane Market: Challenges

  • Fouling and scaling factors to challenge the market expansion.

The global market may face challenges due to the growing cases of fouling and scaling in the membranes. Fouling can occur in thin-film composite membranes or cellulose-based membranes and falls into the four main categories namely; colloidal, biological, organic, and scaling. It remains to be one of the key areas of improvement in the global market.

Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane Market: Segmentation

The global reverse osmosis (RO) membrane market is segmented based on filter, type, application, end-user, and region.

Based on filter, the global market segments are tubular, plate & frame, hollow fiber, and spiral wound. The global market witnessed the highest growth in the spiral would segment owing to the high effectiveness shown by spiral wound filters. They can be easily cleaned and offer the best value per membrane area. The hollow fiber segment may grow at a CAGR of 9.15%.

Based on application, the global market divisions are utility water treatment, desalination, process water, wastewater treatment & reuse, and others. In 2021, the global market was dominated by the wastewater treatment and reuse segment owing to the growing demand for treating industrial wastewater to make them available for further use.

Wastewater refers to the water generated once it has been used either in a residential or industrial setting. The treatment of such water is the most effective way of avoiding water wastage or water pollution. More than 62 billion gallons of wastewater are treated per day in the United States.
