RO Membrane Chemicals Market Growth May Set New Growth Story by 2030

The global RO membrane chemicals market is poised to expand at 7.88% CAGR during the review period (2018-2025).

Market Analysis

The global RO membrane chemicals market is anticipated to experience an upswing at a staggering 7.88% CAGR over the assessment period (2022 to 2030). RO or Reverse Osmosis is a popular water purification technology which utilizes a membrane that is partially permeable for removing molecules, larger particles and ions from drinking water. The RO membranes are largely used for different purposes such as industrial process water, brackish water for drinking, wastewater recovery and desalination of sea water. It helps to adequately remove almost every inorganic contaminant present in water and remove viruses, bacteria, cysts, radium and pesticides. RO membranes are available in two types- with chemical protection and sans chemical protection. It is the chemicals that help in preventing fouling and bacterial growth in the RO membranes. These chemicals have been scientifically formulated for optimizing RO recovery rates, reducing problems related to corrosion and scaling and improving the operational efficiency of the RO plant installations. The RO membrane chemicals are used to augment the performance and longevity of the RO membrane.

There are many factors that is fueling the growth of the RO membrane chemicals market. The different market trends and factors in this market according to an analysis performed by Market Research Future (MRFR) include rising awareness about health amid people, desire to keep away from waterborne diseases, rapid urbanization and industrialization, increasing need for purified water, growing need for water purification that has extended to aerospace, industrial boilers, microelectronics and pharmaceutical and creation of desalination plants. Though this market is growing significantly, unfortunately there are a couple of factors that may impede its growth such as availability of latest water treatment technology known as forward osmosis, loss of vital minerals from water due to the use of RO membranes and rising cost of membrane.

Key Players

Leading players profiled in the RO membrane chemicals market include Aceepta Ltd, King Lee Technologies, Ecolab, AXEON Water Technologies, Koch Membrane Systems, Inc., Acuro Organics Limited, Kroff, Inc., Applied Membranes, Inc., SUEZ, American Water Chemicals, Inc., Ampac USA, and Lenntech B.V.

Aug 2018- University of Connecticut Researchers is coming up with a new approach that is, create RO membranes having tunable thickness. Through an additive manufacturing technique employing electro spraying, these researchers are creating ultra-smooth and ultra-thin polyamide membranes which is less susceptible to fouling and will also need less power for moving water through it.

Market Segmentation

In the Market Research Future (MRFR) report, the RO Membrane Chemicals Market Growth has been segmented on the basis of application and type.

Based on application, it is segmented into membrane fouling, membrane scale control and membrane cleaning. Of these, membrane fouling will dominate the market and is expected to touch USD 1,100 million at an above-average CAGR by 2025. In fact, membrane fouling is a very common problem with RO membranes that is generally resolved through RO membrane chemicals.

Based on type, the RO membrane chemicals market is segmented into biocides, acid membrane cleaners and alkaline membrane cleaners. Of these, the biocides hold a predominant share in the RO membrane chemical market. It is expected to see a healthy CAGR over the assessment period. The demand for biocides will remain high all through the assessment period as it is a vital RO membrane chemical which is largely used to control the growth of biofilm, slime and microorganisms.

Regional Analysis

Based on region, the RO membrane chemicals market covers growth opportunities and latest trends across South America, North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific. Of these, the APAC region is expected to have an edge over others in the RO membrane chemicals market over the assessment period. The two most populated countries, India and China will stay vital to the future prospects of the RO membrane chemicals market in this region. Both these countries are indeed undertaking key economic reforms thereby making them an attractive proposition especially for stakeholders. Moreover, the rapid growth of numerous end-use industries in India and China is creating for the market participants a favorable condition. APAC is followed by North America that holds the second biggest market share and is anticipated to capture a striking 7.15% CAGR over the assessment period. The RO membrane chemicals market in the Middle East and Africa is anticipated to present the market players with lucrative opportunities in the coming years. Growing demand for purified water coupled with rising focus towards the economic diversification is likely to fuel the growth of the RO membrane chemicals market in this region.
