Gas Separation Membranes Market Growth, Trends, Absolute Opportunity and Value Chain 2017 – 2027

Press release from: Future Market Insights

Market Definition and Introduction

The primary purpose served by gas separation membranes is to isolate a specific gaseous component from gaseous or vapor mixtures. The commercial objectives of gas separation membrane applications are multiple; for instance, the separation of a particular valuable gas for recovery from a gas mixture, producing industrial gases from air as a raw material and in air pollution control applications. Gas separation membranes find multiple applications in various industries on account of the vital role they play in manufacturing, processing and ecological processes. In recent times, gas separation membranes have been proving to be commercially viable to yield moderate purity stream gases as well.

Gas separation membranes display multiple advantages vis-à-vis other gas separation technologies, such as ease of installation and minimal need for supervision. They also require much lesser space and do not have moving parts, thereby eliminating expensive maintenance procedures. Furthermore, gas separation membranes operate with relatively less energy consumption. This results in considerable energy savings, translating into reduced operational costs as well. Another advantage gas separation membranes exhibit is that they neither release harmful gases nor do they require solvents for gas separation – an environment friendly approach to gas separation requirements. Besides, gas separation membranes could be easily scaled up for large scale commercialization.

Key Trends, Drivers

In recent times, there has been a rise in the demand for gas separation membranes to separate carbon dioxide from natural gas for safe transportation of the latter through pipelines. Besides, the refining industry requires increased deployment of gas separation membranes for vapor separation. Inorganic gas separation membranes are proving to be cost-effective solutions for gas separation process applications, with the added advantages of high chemical stability along with low costs of fabrication. However, as high operating temperatures (in the range of 200 to 900 degrees Celsius) are required for inorganic gas separation membranes, a recent trend has been hinting toward a shift to polymeric gas separation membranes. This can be attributed to the fact that polymeric gas separation membranes are exceptionally economical and exhibit competitive operational performance, such as their capability to operate at ambient temperatures. Polymeric gas separation membranes have been also found to possess good mechanical & thermal characteristics.

In the past few years, gas separation membrane applications have also been found to successfully compete with other gas separation technologies, such as gas absorption, pressure swing adsorption, cryogenic distillation and condensation processes, in terms of commercial viability.

However, the high cost of gas separation membranes has been contributing to high initial capital investments for end use industries. Also, metallic gas separation membranes made from precious metals, such as platinum or palladium, are expensive, but they exhibit high performance characteristics. This has been hampering the growth rate of the gas separation membranes market at a global level.
