Membrane Bioreactors in the Changing World Water Market

The need for pure water is a problem of global proportions. In the earth's hydrologic cycle, fresh water supplies are fixed and constant, while global water demand is growing. With each passing year the quality of the planet's water measurably deteriorates, presenting challenges for the major users: the municipal, industrial and environmental sectors.

Water treatment has become an area of global concern as individuals, communities, industries, nations, and their national institutions strive for ways to keep this essential resource available and suitable for use. Membrane bioreactor systems (MBRs) have, over the past ten years, emerged as an effective solution to transforming various wastewaters into high quality effluent suitable for discharge into the environment and increasingly into a reusable product.

This BCC market research report presents analysis and forward thinking knowledge that will be of advantage to manufacturers, suppliers, and to local and state governments, the federal government as well as foreign governments. Engineers, utilities and corporate planners will benefit in accessing the global demand for membrane bioreactors.

Scope Of Study

The report contains:

  • Analysis of the membrane and biological components of MBRs
  • Examination of system configurations and typical MBR performance
  • Cost analyses and system applications
  • Examination of companies active in the market, market share and industry structure
  • Quantitative evaluations for the major market segments, both historically and with forecasts to 2010
  • Identification of the global scope of the MBR market within four major geographical regions with information on regional economics, water needs, MBR experience and proposed projects.

Report Highlights

  • Valued at an estimated $216.6 million in 2005, the global MBR market is rising at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 10.9% and is expected to approach $363 million in 2010.
  • This segment is growing faster than the larger market for advanced wastewater treatment equipment and more rapidly than the markets for other types of membrane systems.
  • Anticipated stricter environmental regulations in the U.S. and overseas are driving sales of MBRs to industry and municipalities, and prompting maritime users to consider MBR technology.
  • During the forecast period, sewage treatment will continue to be the primary use for MBR systems.
