STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research market opportunity report provides an in-depth analysis of the technical and market drivers relating to the market for microfiltration (MF) membrane products: modules, capsules, cartridges and cassettes. The study evaluates the current worth of MF products by application, and forecasts growth and trends in the various sectors over the next five years. The conclusions are illustrated with important statistical information on markets, applications, industry structure and dynamics, along with technological developments.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The report is intended for those who require a thorough analysis of the MF membrane industry, which traces significant developments and forecasts important trends, quantifies the various market sectors and profiles companies active in those areas.
Because of the fragmented nature of the industry, it is difficult to find studies that gather extensive data from diverse resources and analyze it in the context of a comprehensive document. This report contains a unique collection of membrane-related information and conclusions that is difficult to find elsewhere.
SCOPE OF REPORT
This report examines the market for MF membrane products as reflected by the major applications of the technology: food and beverage processing, biopharmaceuticals manufacture, potable water production, wastewater treatment, industrial processes and semiconductor fabrication. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, membrane applications and trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles and competitive technologies are included in the study.
The report is a study of the global market as applied to liquid separations. Analysis will not include membranes in the MF pore size range for air and/or gas separations, or for nonseparating applications such as technical textiles or diagnostic kits. Medical devices based on MF membranes will not be addressed either. Values are given in U.S. dollars;
forecasts are made in constant U.S. dollars, and growth rates are compounded. Sales of “membranes” refer to the sale of membranes packaged as modules, capsules, cartridges, cassettes or other devices in which the membranes are “housed.” Pressure vessels, housings, pumps, piping, controls or other system components are not included in the market values.
