Hollow Fiber Membranes Market 2019 In-Depth Analysis of Industry Growth Trends & Forecast up to 2025

Author : Rahul Varpe | Published Date : 2019-04-24 

Global Hollow fiber membrane market will be driven by rising demand for water treatment in the coming years. The population is growing at higher rate than the available resources to sustain it. It puts high strain on all resources. Pharmaceuticals and food & beverages, industries especially need large quantity of water. The already depleting water resources has driven demand for water treatment industry.

About 30 years ago, hollow fiber membranes were invented during research on reverse osmosis membranes. Hollow fiber membranes are utilized as cylindrical membranes where selective exchange of materials happen through their walls.

They are artificial membranes manufactured from ceramic and various polymer materials, such as cellulose tri acetate, PVDF, polyacrylonitrile, polyether, PTFE, ceramics, sulfones and polyimides are utilized to produce the fiber membranes. The hollow fiber membranes are used for number of ultrafiltration and microfiltration requirements. Polymers are preferred over ceramics owing to their high permeability.

In food industry, the fiber membrane perform functions such as clarification, concentration, separation and fractionation. Clarification process is utilized in wine, beer and water production. Concentration and fractionation process are used in production of dairy products. Food industry products such as grain and animal products, juice processing, syrup production also utilize the fiber membranes in their production.

Other than food & beverages industry, medicine applications includes biotechnology and pharmaceuticals; desalination of water, pervaporation wastewater reclamation, agriculture and gas separation are areas where hollow fiber membranes are widely used. In medicine applications, hollow fiber membranes are used in equipment for procedures such as plasmapheresis, oxygenation of blood hemofiltration and hemodialysis. Research on its use for detoxification function of the liver is also underway. Hollow fiber membranes will find huge demand in waste water treatment, owing to its fast rise, over next few years

Microfiltration, reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration are three types of filtration process on which the hollow fiber membranes are classified. Microfiltration is low-pressure filtration technology that has highest share of hollow membrane market. It is mainly used for food processing applications. Under the microfiltration membranes, from any fluid stream larger constituents are removed via size exclusion. Ultrafiltration membranes find usage where small pore size is preferred in waste water treatment, RO-pretreatment and potable water production. Ultrafiltration is capable of removing colloids, bacteria, viruses and solids from any stream of water.

Hollow fiber membrane filtration has proven to be a profitable process that provide ability to filter abundant volume at a time. These fibers can be produced in all types of dimensions. The hollow fiber membranes feature very high packing density. It is due to their small strand diameter. The flexibility of strands enable the membrane to show greater filter configuration that is absent in other technologies. Few problems that are associated with product are fiber breakage and irreversible fouling. However, the fiber breakage occurs only in case of extreme strains.

The hollow fiber membranes market has presence of small to large scale companies. Some of the big player are DowDuPont, LG Chem, Evonik, Lenntech etc. Asia Pacific is likely to be the largest market of hollow fiber membranes in the coming years. It is due to number of countries that have food processing plants such as India, Singapore, Thailand and China. Also, such emerging nations are in forefront to conserve and process water for greater industrial, agricultural and sanitation related applications.
