Non-Woven Industrial Membrane Market Research Report

Nonwoven membranes are defined as web structures or sheets merged together by entangling fibers or filaments mechanically, chemically, or thermally. They are used widely in the biopharmaceutical industry, as their products are likely to be degraded due to chemical treatment and heat.

Global Non-Woven Industrial Membrane Market

The GMI Research forecasts that the Non-Woven Industrial Membrane Market is witnessing an upsurge in demand over the forecast period. This is mainly due to their mounting number of end-use applications, the growing importance of water and wastewater treatment.

Introduction of the Non-Woven Industrial Membrane Market

Non-Woven Industrial Membrane Market Dynamics (including market size, share, trends, forecast, growth, forecast, and industry analysis)

Growth in the global non-woven Industrial Membrane market is mainly driven by the augmenting consciousness among the population about the various beneficial features of wastewater treatment systems and swift industrialization across emerging countries like India and China. In addition, the ongoing investment by the government in water plants accompanied by the enlargement of manufacturing sectors, especially in chemical processing and power generation, has further strengthened the non-woven Industrial Membrane market size. The European Investment Bank stated that the city council of Mariupol and the Government of France signed a declaration for the establishment of municipal water supply infrastructure in Mariupol and invested nearly  35 million in the development process. Furthermore, their implementation across several industries further stimulates market growth.

On the other hand, the non-woven Industrial Membrane report stated that rigorous norms related to the safe discharge of harmful waste material imposed by various regulatory bodies may hamper the market share. For example, the US Environmental Protection agency suggested the National Program for Greenhouse Emission to sustain sustainable growth in the country. Thus, the growing number of programs will restrict the mounting demand for non-woven industrial membranes. Also, the widespread outbreak of the pandemic negatively influenced the market growth owing to the disruptions in demand and supply chain.

End-Use Industry Segment Drivers

Based on the module type, the market is segmented into the tubular, spiral wound, plate frame (PF), and hollow fiber membrane. The spiral wound segment is expected to dominate the market due to the cost-effectiveness and better energy level proffered by them because of their higher packaging density. 

Application Segment Drivers

Based on the application, the market is bifurcated into food beverage processing, water, and wastewater treatment, chemical processing, industrial gas processing, and pharmaceutical and medical. Amongst this, pharmaceutical is contemplated to hold the largest share in the market over the coming years. This is primarily because of their aggravating usage in various processes like ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and other osmosis technologies. Moreover, these processes are highly dependent on good air filters as they are performed in toxic environments, which will further raise the market growth.

Regional Drivers

On the basis of regional coverage, Asia Pacific will lead the market owing to the swift extension of the manufacturing, medical and pharmaceutical industry in China. However, North America is projected to experience a higher growth rate over the forecast period. This is due to their intensifying acquisition for water and wastewater treatment followed by various safety and health benefits proffered in the pharmaceutical process. Besides this, the ongoing technological advancement in the filtration industry to cater to the accelerating consumer demand will proliferate the industry's growth.
