Preview Analysis

Membrane chemicals are the variants of specialty chemicals that are formulated to treat a vast range of RO/UF/NF/MF membrane foulants and scalants. In water intensive industries such as power, chemical, F&B, etc., demand for process water is outstripping the supply, due to which these industries have to recycle the wastewater to meet their daily operational requirements. Membranes are leveraged across various industries to eliminate these contaminants. Though membranes are highly effective in filtering solids and other water impurities, deposition of these impurities negatively impacts the performance of membranes. It in turn leads to high capital costs of membrane maintenance. Business everywhere are facing the similar challenges. Membrane chemicals is seen as the most potential water treatment solutions that not only reduces operational costs of membranes but also enhances the durability of these membranes and system performance in commercial and industrial applications.

The global membrane market was worth US $ 1013.8 million in 2013 and is expected to register CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period 2014 and 2020. Rise in demand for process water across various end-use industries and increase in demand for effective solutions to prevent membrane fouling and scaling are the major driving forces behind the vertical surge of membrane chemicals market. Water intensive industries power and chemical is anticipated to collectively capture 30% of market volume by 2020, an increase of 200 basis points from 2014. Dynamic growth in industrial production in emerging economies coupled with cost effectiveness of membrane chemicals are macroeconomic drivers for membrane chemicals.

Based on the different types of scaling and fouling agents, various types of membrane chemical products such as antiscalants, antifoulants, pH adjusters, dechlorinants and biocides are available in the market. The membrane chemical market has witnessed diversified trends across different regions including North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), Eastern Europe, Western Europe and Latin America. Among key regions for membrane chemicals, APAC is projected to witness impressive growth in membrane chemicals market.

Membrane demand in North America region will see a surge in membrane chemicals due to rising demand from end-use industries. Wastewater treatment is an important end-use industry. While major share of revenue is projected to come from wastewater treatment, food and beverages is expected to witness highest CAGR in between FY 2014 and 2020 for membrane chemicals in North America. Due to relatively matured market characteristic, demand for membrane chemicals in North America and Western Europe is expected to remain sluggish during the forecast period.

Though North America retains the title of being largest market both in terms of revenue and volume is projected to considerably lose its market share to emerging economies of APAC, MEA, and Latin America. APAC is the most promising region in terms of market opportunities for membrane chemicals. Exponential demand for power and chemicals along with growing processed food market in APAC region are the major drivers behind growth of membrane chemical market. By fiscal year (FY) 2017, APAC is expected to overtake the North America in terms of both market value and volume.

Next prominent market for membrane chemical is MEA. Concentration of prominent end-use industries of membrane chemicals such as oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical and desalination surfaced MEA as a good market base for membrane chemical industries. Almost 60% of desalination plant utilizes RO membrane which offers good market prospects for membrane chemicals in MEA. It is projected that desalination market in MEA will register double digit growth.

Key players in the membrane chemicals market are BWA Water Additives, Lenntech, Kemira, Genesys International, and GE Power & Water.
