In-depth Analysis and Data-driven Insights on the Impact of COVID-19 Included in this Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane and Component Market Report

The RO membrane market was valued at USD 10.64 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 18.91 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 10.06%.

The increasing need for treated water and efficient elimination of pathogens from wastewater treatment plants is boosting the demand for the RO membrane and components market. Stringent government regulations have led to the use of RO membrane technology. The bargaining power of buyers is high as customers are always looking for system suppliers who can offer complete solutions for diverse water requirements. In addition, customers prefer vendors who deliver value-added services. This, in turn, has motivated companies in the industry to focus their efforts on continuously working toward offering a varied range of products and service offerings.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the RO membrane and component market:

• Increasing population and rapid urbanization
• Growing demand for water & wastewater treatment in developing countries
• Increasing desalination plants
• Stringent wastewater treatment regulations
• Growing water scarcity


• There are various challenges in wastewater management in developing countries, which can be overcome by appropriate planning and policy implementation. This provides great opportunities to the RO membrane industry.
• In desalination applications, the demand for RO membrane systems is expected to witness an exponential growth rate. The GCC region holds the largest desalination market globally, generating about 4 million cubic meters of water each day.
