Membrane Microfiltration Market Projected to Grow Steadily

Microfiltration is a filtration process which removes contaminants or suspended particles from a fluid (liquid or gas) by passing through a special pore-sized membrane. The size of the pores in the membrane determines the extent to which the dissolved particles and microorganisms can be removed. Thus, membranes with a pore size of 0.1-10 µm can perform microfiltration. It works on a simple principle of physical separation. These filters are available in several diameters and pore sizes and made of different polymers (such as cellulose, polycarbonate, polytetrafuoroethylene, nylon, polyvinylidene fluoride, and polypropylene).

Microfiltration is widely used in large of industries such as dairy (concentration of milk, protein standardization, whey protein separation); food & beverage (clarification and concentration of fruit and vegetable juices, concentration of fish proteins, and concentration of coffee, caffeine, tea and herbal extracts); pharmaceutical (antibiotics and other drugs derived from fermentation processes); and industrial (bio-chemicals, distillery products, and enzymes). Thus, high adoption of microfiltration in a wide range of applications is expected to further contribute to the growth of the global membrane microfiltration market. It is widely adopted in simple dead end filtration mode for sterile fruit juices & wine, water, and aseptic pharmaceuticals, however, all applications of microfiltration do not successfully operate with this mode and hence a large portion of the global membrane microfiltration market is captured by cross flow filtration mode.

Membrane Microfiltration Market: Drivers and Restraints

Technological innovations in membrane microfiltration, growth in biopharmaceutical and processed food industry, and water scarcity and need for quality water are the primary factors driving the growth of the global membrane microfiltration market. Moreover, the growing awareness about water quality and the rising need for waste water treatment and water desalination will further promote the growth of the membrane microfiltration market. However, high initial investment is one of the major factors restraining the growth of the global membrane microfiltration market. It acts as a significant barrier for new entrants to expand their product offerings in the membrane microfiltration market. In addition to this, stringent water quality legislation for validating the filtration process and filters will further restrain the growth of the global membrane microfiltration market.
