Global Ion Exchange Membrane Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An ion exchange membrane is a type of semipermeable membrane that selectively allows certain ions to pass through it. This type of membrane is often used in water purification systems, as it can remove contaminants like lead and arsenic from the water. Ion exchange membranes are also used in chemical processing plants to separate different types of molecules based on their electrical charge.

Perfluorosulfonic Acid Ion Exchange Membrane:

Perfluorosulfonic acid ion exchange membrane is a type of highly porous anion exchanger used in water treatment. It has the ability to remove fluoride, chloride and other cations from the aqueous phase by selective permeability to provide high effluent quality. The product finds application in municipal wastewater treatment, industrial wastewater & process water treatment and aquaculture industry.

Perfluorocarboxylic Acid Ion Exchange Membrane:

Perfluorocarboxylic acid ion exchange membrane and it's usage in Ion Exchange Membrane market is a new technology which has been developed recently. This technology is based on the chemical properties of perfluorocarboxylic acid (PFCA). PFCA has very high cation exchange capacity and can remove many cations including sodium, calcium, and magnesium from aqueous solutions.

Application Insights:

The global ion exchange membrane market is segmented on the basis of application into water treatment, chlor-alkali processing, energy, and others. The water treatment application dominated the overall industry in terms of revenue share in 2017. This high share is attributable to rising demand for cost-effective and sustainable drinking water purification technologies across various applications such as industrial wastewater management, desalination plants, and municipal wastewater facilities.

Ion exchange membranes are used as a component in several desalination plants around the world due to their ability to produce potable (drinkable)water from sea or brackishwater (referring to freshwater containing significant levels of dissolved salts). These membranes are also used at some large municipal wastewater facilities that process industrial waste or domestic sewage for discharge purposes owing to their ability not only remove impurities but also because they require less maintenance than other types of filters do over its lifespan.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global ion exchange membrane market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of major end-users coupled with increasing demand for water treatment solutions, energy purification systems, and other industrial applications is anticipated to drive regional growth.

The growing chemical industry in China owing to its abundant resources along with favorable government regulations regarding foreign investments has led to an increase in the production of chemicals across various industries such as textiles, paper & pulp, paints & coatings, etc. This trend is projected to have a positive impact on regional growth over the forecast period.

North America accounted for a significant share due to high consumption levels coupled with stringent environmental regulations by EPA concerning wastewater treatment processes that are driving manufacturers toward adopting advanced technologies including ion exchange membranes for water treatment purposes.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for water treatment: The global population is growing at a rapid pace and the demand for potable water is increasing correspondingly. This is driving the adoption of ion exchange membrane technology for water treatment, thereby propelling the growth of the market.
  • Rising awareness about benefits of using ion exchange membranes: Ion exchange membranes offer several advantages over traditional methods of water treatment such as filtration and chlorination. This is resulting in an increase in their adoption, thereby fuelling market growth.
  • Growing investment in municipal infrastructure: Governments around the world are investing heavily in municipal infrastructure projects, which include setting up new wastewater treatment plants that use ion exchange membrane technology. This is providing a major impetus to market growth.
