INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Nanofiltration membranes were first introduced during the late 1970s for water filtration and purification. For many years, they remained in various stages of development, until the early 1990s, when the first marketable products were created. Since then, research and development (R&D) activity related to nanofiltration membranes has been growing at a healthy rate in parallel with a steadily expanding nanofiltration membrane market. BCC Research published its first report on nanofiltration membranes in September 2007. Since then, the market for nanofiltration membranes has more than doubled, new technological developments have occurred in the field and important industry changes have taken place.

In this study, BCC Research provides a current and detailed assessment of the nanofiltration membrane market, including an objective analysis of industry and technological trends and prospects for future growth. In addition, an updated review of the most important advances in nanofiltration technology and fabrication methods is offered, with a focus on those technologies that will contribute to market growth during the next five years.Specifically, the major objectives of this study are to:
- Provide an updated review of nanofiltration membranes, with details on materials, configurations and fabrication technologies.
- Highlight new technological developments during the past three years, while outlining current technical issues.
- Review existing fields of application for nanofiltration membranes and examine emerging applications.
- Estimate current global markets for nanofiltration membranes by material type, configuration, application and region, with growth forecasts through 2019 for each
market segment.
- Identify important technology and industry trends within each market segment.
- Offer an updated review of current industry players, including manufacturers of nanofiltration membranes, materials, and fabrication equipment, technology
developers and future market participants.
- Provide a description of the most relevant research and development activities.
- Determine trends in recently issued U.S. patents.

REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Nanofiltration is a pressure-driven, membrane-based separation process whose characteristics fall between those of ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis. Nanofiltration
membranes are fabricated using various materials and technologies and in different configurations to meet the disparate requirements of several industrial sectors in which
they are used. The global membrane market is estimated to be valued at nearly $12 billion in 2013. Nanofiltration membranes represent a very small share of this market (less than 2%) but their market is growing at a faster rate compared to other membrane technologies.

The increased market penetration of these products can be attributed to different factors, including a rising demand for potable water and reduced freshwater sources,
environmental restrictions on industrial and municipal wastewater discharges, and lower operating costs compared to, for example, reverse osmosis.
The principal objective of this report is to present a current assessment of the nanofiltration industry from both a technological and market point of view and to
outline future trends and key developments.

There is also a need to evaluate the current status and future trends of this market from a global standpoint. As the use of these products expands and new fields of
application emerge, information on suppliers and developers of nanofiltration membranes and their regional distribution becomes more valuable. An equally important reason for undertaking this report is to provide technical insights into the manufacturing of nanofiltration membranes by:

- Providing a review of materials, applications and production methods.
- Identifying current technical trends.
- Providing an overview of the main global R&D activities related to nanofiltration membranes, resulting in the issuance of patents.
- Illustrating the latest technological developments.

This information can assist companies in identifying opportunities for process and productivity improvements and new product development, resulting in a positive
impact on future market growth.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This study will be of primary interest to all organizations that:
- Manufacture, sell and distribute nanofiltration membranes and other filtration products.
- Supply raw materials for the production of nanofiltration membranes.
- Manufacture process equipment utilized by producers of nanofiltration membranes.
- Design and fabricate filtration systems for application in different industries.
- Utilize filtration membranes in their processes to separate various components.
- Provide technical and/or marketing services in conjunction with the above mentioned products.
- Are planning to enter the nanofiltration industry as a supplier, manufacturer or end user.

Overall, this report applies to industry segments such as water and wastewater treatment, food and beverage, chemical and petrochemical, metalworking, textiles,
agriculture, and solid waste management. The report is mainly directed toward executives, directors, operations managers, sales and marketing managers, and strategic planners working within the above industries. Universities and research facilities may also find this report to be a good source of technical information regarding nanofiltration technology and applications, which can be used as a baseline for new or expanded R&D activities. Librarians of technical information and research centers can also use this report to provide critical data to product managers, market analysts, researchers and other professionals needing
detailed and updated insights into the nanofiltration industry.
