Europe Membrane Market Overview:
Membranes are thin films that, depending on their size, allow specific chemicals and particles to flow through. They're semi-permeable, to put it another way. For a range of applications, procedures such as MF (microfiltration), UF (ultrafiltration), NF (nanofiltration), and others are used, depending on the size of the substrates to be separated.
Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration were two of the first large-scale applications of these barrier films, and they are still in use in many waters treatment plants throughout the world. These barrier films are made from natural or synthetic polymers, as well as metallic powders, ceramics, and zeolites.
Europe Membrane Market Dynamics:
Surging demand for Low-Pressure Membrane:
The rising demand for the low-pressure membrane to treat water and make it safe for drinking purposes is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period. Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration are the filtration systems in which low-pressure membranes are used to treat the water. Low-pressure membranes are operated at a pressure ranging from 10 to 30 lb./in2.
As the population across the European countries is rising at a fast pace particularly in Germany, the thirst for fresh and potable water is going to rise. So, the adoption of membrane technology is also expected to grow over the forecast period leading to market growth.
Continuously rising water pollution:
Pollution from urban and industrial wastewater, diffuse pollution from agriculture, pollution from mining, and pollution from residences that are not connected to a sewage system are all major issues in Europe. Overall, diffuse pollution from agriculture, both nutrients, and pesticides, affects 22% of Europe's surface water bodies and 28% of the groundwater area. Air pollution, particularly mercury, causes the chemical quality of Europe's water bodies to deteriorate.
Also, structural improvements, such as river channel stabilization, water storage, hydropower, flood prevention, or irrigation, have a substantial impact on around 34% of surface water bodies. River course and flow are affected by structural changes, which can have a significant impact on river and floodplain biodiversity. Many of the constructions are
different sorts of barriers, although the function of the barriers is unknown in around 40% of the affected water bodies, according to the EEA report.
Fouling causes frequent membrane replacements:
Membrane fouling is a significant problem that has a negative impact on its performance. It reduces both efficiency and flow, resulting in higher energy consumption and deterioration of water or stream quality. Chemical cleaning or replacement are the two choices for getting rid of tainted products (both of which come at a high cost). When these costs are factored in, applications and acceptance are restricted to specific industries, limiting the market growth. Membrane fouling is a process in which a solution or particle is deposited on a membrane surface or in membrane pores, causing the membrane to perform poorly.
It is a significant impediment to the general adoption of this technology. Membrane fouling can result in a significant drop in flux and have an impact on the quality of the water generated. Fouling that is severe may demand extensive chemical cleaning or membrane replacement. This raises a treatment plant's operational expenses. Foulants can be colloidal (clays, flocs), biological (bacteria, fungi), organic (oils, polyelectrolytes, humic), or scaling in nature (mineral precipitates).
Europe Membrane Market Segment Analysis:
Based on Technology:
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a process that uses pressure to demineralize or deionize water. Contaminants are rejected by a RO membrane based on their size and charge. Any contaminant with a molecular weight larger than 200 or anionic charge greater will be filtered. Reverse osmosis can remove particles, 99% or more of dissolved salts (ions), colloids, organics, microorganisms, pyrogens, monovalent and multivalent ions, and monovalent and multivalent ions from the feed water.
Reverse osmosis is the most used method of water purification in both commercial and household settings. Reverse osmosis filters away organic pollutants, metals, and pathogens as well as lowers the salt content in water. Reverse osmosis is also used to filter liquids that include undesired impurities in the water. Thus, the need for reverse osmosis treatment is expected to rise as the population grows and the demand for fresh drinking water continues to rise.
Detailed analysis of each segment mentioned in the scope table is covered in the SMR’s report.
Europe Membrane Market Regional Insights:
Germany is moving away from nuclear, oil-fired, coal-fired, and natural gas-fired power facilities in favor of green energy. By 2021, it expects to produce 36% of its electricity from renewable sources. This is expected to increase the use of water in power generation, which may have a favorable impact on the European market for membrane water treatment technology. Also, the growing demand for membrane water treatment technology in the country is likely to be driven by the municipal industry.
In the region, Germany has the greatest market share of the membrane market. The rising degree of pollution from industrial, commercial, and residential waste is driving the demand for low-pressure membranes. Thanks to overcrowding and rising domestic waste, the use of water and wastewater treatment plants have increased in the country's coastal regions.
Low-pressure membranes are used in plants to provide good physical disinfection and particle removal, resulting in higher-quality wastewater effluent. This water can then be used for both direct and indirect potable reuse. As a result of specialized applications and technological improvements, pressure membrane technology has become increasingly popular in the country.
