The 2014 market for reverse osmosis (RO) membranes and system components is expected to reach nearly $5.4 billion by year end, and is predicted to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.5% to reach $8.8 billion by 2019.

This report provides:

An overview of the global markets for reverse osmosis (RO) system components, which include pretreatment cartridges, pumps, pressure vessels/housings, RO membrane modules, and ancillary elements such as skids, valves, and gauges.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012 and 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.
Identification of existing and potential markets for RO on the global stage.
Discussion of important technological trends, such as improved low-pressure membranes, large-diameter membranes, and non-fouling membranes.
Coverage of the RO market centered on purified water produced for municipal, industrial, military, and agriculture/environmental markets.
Patent analysis.
Comprehensive company profiles of major players.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This report is divided into specific system component chapters dealing with the RO membranes, pressure vessels/housings, cartridge filters/prefilters, pumps, and other ancillary components, such as valves, gauges, skids, racks, piping, manifolds, computer controls, and piping needed to complete a functional system. Quantitative evaluations are given for the major market segments, historically and for a five-year horizon. The global scope of the RO market is identified within four major geographical regions with information on economic trends and water needs.
Costs of consulting, engineering, and real estate are excluded from system costs. NF is considered as a membrane “softening” process or a divalent or trivalent ion-removal technique that is a subset of RO.
The RO market in this study is centered on purified water produced for municipal, industrial, military, and agriculture/environmental markets. It does not address wastewater issues, with the exception of wastewater as an integral part of a reuse and recycle system.
