Reasons for Doing This Study
New and growing technology trends suggest that the use of ion exchange materials will continue to grow over the next five years. Technologies ranging from clean water to pharmaceutical applications will need ion exchange materials for their efficient operation and to produce many of the substances we use throughout our lives.

In the past, market research reports have been divided between ion exchange resins and ion exchange membrane technologies. As such, many times the reports cover commodity chemicals in the case of ion exchange resins and some ion exchange membranes; while others focus on specialty chemicals like some ionomers and ion exchange membranes. There are a limited number of reports that cover all the technologies encompassing ion exchange materials.

This report will cover all the major technologies in which ion exchange materials are used. The technologies covered herein use both commodity chemicals and specialty chemicals. This report covers applications where ion exchange membranes are used in applications like fuel cells. In addition, the report will also include applications like water softening, where less expensive ion exchange resins are produced. The price points and markets for these technologies range depending on the application as well as the type of chemical. Readers of this report will find a comprehensive guide to the use of ion exchange materials globally and the technologies in which they are used.

Scope of Report

The methodology used to generate this report used, as a point of reference, the actual and expected market size for the applications using the ion exchange materials. The markets were later deconvoluted into what segments of the applications market are comprised of by the ion exchange material.

Afterward, the analyst looked at changes in the industries caused by worldwide trends to compute a forecast. The CAGR estimates were generated using such patterns to predict growth and market size. In some instances, the analyst used information collected from industry interviews and investor presentations to generate more accurate predictions of the market growth and overall direction of the ion exchange materials industry. Estimated market values are based mostly on manufacturers’ total revenues.

Geographic Breakdown
In this report, the geographic regions considered for market analysis include, and only include:

North America
• United States.
• Mexico.
• Canada.

• France.
• Germany.
• Italy.

• China.
• India.

Rest of World.

Summary and Highlights
The ion exchange materials market including both ion exchange resins and ion exchange membranes is estimated to reach $9.5 billion by 2021; this represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) estimate of 11.8%. The summary of the market data by end use is presented in the following table.

The fastest growing application segment for ion exchange materials is in energy storage and generation technologies. The growth in energy storage and generation technologies is estimated to be 26.5% CAGR. This increase is driven by continued adoption of fuel cell technologies and the infrastructure associated with it. Many companies believe that advancements in materials and continued adoption of technology will power growth in these markets. Currently, ion exchange materials’ largest market segment is with water technology applications.

Water technology uses both ion exchange membranes and resins, but primarily resins in terms of amounts of materials sold. The CAGR for this segment is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7%. It is expected that membrane-based applications will eventually have higher market values than ion exchange resins. The growth rate in the ion exchange membrane segment is estimated to be greater than for ion exchange resins. More information on the market breakdown by ion exchange materials form factors will be presented in following chapters of this report.
