Membrane Contactor Market to Exceed Valuation of USD 373.2 Million by 2027

Sep 17, 2023

According to a recent report by Reports and Data, the membrane contactor market is anticipated to reach a market size of USD 373.2 Million by 2027, with a high compound annual growth rate (CAGR) throughout the forecast period. The market's growth is driven by several key factors, including the increasing preference for operational flexibility, controlled high interfacial area, energy-efficient solutions, and modular and compact designs compared to traditional gas absorbers.

Membrane contactors (MCs) are highly favored due to their advanced membrane technology and their wide range of applications in sustainable and eco-friendly processes. These processes include water desalination, industrial, commercial, and municipal wastewater treatment, pharmaceutical processing, food and beverage production, protein extraction and crystallization, semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, as well as volatile organic compound (VOC) removal.

The advantages offered by membrane contactor systems over traditional column contactors, such as reduced size, enhanced operational flexibility, higher mass transfer rate with linear scale-up, and integration possibilities, are contributing factors to the growth of the global membrane contactor market.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the growth of the global membrane contactor market. Market players are uncertain about the industry's future and have been adapting their strategies accordingly. The pandemic disrupted manufacturing and transportation services, leading many multinational companies to temporarily close their factories. Nevertheless, end-users have placed a greater emphasis on filtration process safety, leading to the adoption of effective sterilization and sanitization measures, which have directly boosted market growth.

Key findings from the report include the strategic collaboration between Nel ASA and Kværner AS for green hydrogen projects and standardization of solutions for large-scale hydrogen production plants. The rising demand for clean and safe water has also driven investments in water treatment globally, thereby propelling the growth of the membrane contactor market, as these contactors are widely used in water treatment processes. Hollow fiber membrane contactors accounted for the largest revenue share in 2019 due to their larger contact surface area compared to other configurations.

The report predicts a CAGR of 8.0% for the Asia Pacific membrane contactor market, driven by the significant growth of the industrial sector and the implementation of clean water programs in the region. In terms of membrane materials, hydrophobic membranes held the largest market revenue share in 2019 (62.4%) due to their ability to prevent membrane wetting. The major players in the market include 3M Company, Hydro-Elektrik GmbH, Veolia Environnement SA, Pure Water Group, Lenntech B.V., Compact Membrane Systems, Cobetter Filtration Equipment Pvt. Ltd., PTI Pacific Pty. Ltd., JU.CLA.S Srl, and Entegris, Inc.

The report further provides segmentation of the global membrane contactor market based on material, membrane type, end-use industry, configuration, phase, and region. Materials include polypropylene, polytetrafluoroethylene, and others. Membrane types are categorized as hydrophobic and hydrophilic. The end-use industries comprise microelectronics and semiconductors, oil and gas processing, water treatment, power and steam generation, and others. Configuration options are hollow fiber, capillary, and flat sheet, while phases include gas-liquid and liquid-liquid. The report also presents regional outlooks for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
