Membrane air dryers are cylinder houses with thousands of tiny hollow fibers made of polymers with an inner coating that uses selective permeation of the gas components in the air for dehumidification processes. These filtration systems provide a unique and efficient way to cut various contaminants from compressed air systems. It assists in lowering both the relative humidity and dew point at the same time, thereby, prolonging the system’s life by reducing corrosion and rust caused due to air with high moisture content or contaminated air.

Driven by these factors, membrane air dryers are finding a wide range of applications as advanced systems of filtration media for providing clean and dry air. It is increasingly gaining popularity across the food and beverage industry for applications such as gas separation in nitrogen production for food storage. Hence, increasing adoption of these air dryers across industries such as medical, industrial, telecommunication, and automotive among others is expected to bolster the sales of membrane air dryers in the market.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Membrane Air Dryers Market Growth?

Membrane air dryers offer numerous advantages such as energy-saving, improving the manufacturing process, noise reduction, and overall enhancement in the system reliability. On account of this, they are finding usage across several application areas and have emerged as a vital component of a compressed air system.

These filtration systems provide clean, dry, and high-quality compressed air, along with assisting in lowering the operating cost significantly by conserving energy and improving existing system efficiency.

In addition, implementation of stringent standards pertaining to food safety and hygiene by regulatory bodies such as the Department of Health (DOH), Center for Food Regulation and Research, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and others, is encouraging food & beverage manufacturers to adopt advanced air filtration systems such as membrane air dryers. Hence, increasing deployment across various sectors, especially by meat processing and dairy industry players is estimated to fuel the demand for membrane air dryers.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Membrane Air Dryers Market?

Membrane air dryers are highly expensive owing to their complex processes and need for thousands of tiny hollow polymer fibers for fabrication. In addition, increasing availability of low-cost alternatives such as compressed air filters, refrigerated air dryers, desiccant air dryers, and chemical air dryers are hindering the sales in the market.

These dryers reduce the oxygen content of the compressed air making them incompatible for breathing air applications. Also, inability to provide clean and dry air in environments with excessive moisture in compressed air and short life of membrane air dryers due to corrosion in equipment or piping are factors further hampering the demand in the market.

Why is North America Emerging as an Opportunistic Tunable Diode Laser Analyzer Market?

As per Future Market Insights, North America is projected to account for the lion’s share in the global membrane air dryers market between 2022 and 2032.

Rapidly expanding e-commerce industry and increasing logistics & transportation activities have resulted in a significant rise in sales of commercial vehicles across the countries such as the U.S. and Canada.

For instance, according to a report by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, around 10.13 Mn units of commercial vehicles were sold across the U.S. in 2019, which is 509,000 units more than that of 2018. As membrane air dryers are increasingly being incorporated in air bearings and pneumatic braking systems used in lightweight and heavyweight commercial vehicles, accelerating sales of these automotive vehicles are expected to shoot up the demand in the North America market.

How is Asia Pacific Excluding Japan Contributing to the Growth of the Tunable Diode Laser Analyzer Market?

FMI states that Asia Pacific excluding Japan is anticipated to register growth at a robust CAGR in the global membrane air dryers market over the forecast period 2022-2032.

As the sales of automotive vehicles continue to rise, a significant rise in demand for petroleum derivatives is being witnessed across Asia Pacific. Hence, governments in several countries across the region are emphasizing on rising oil and natural gas exploration activities to increase their production of petroleum products.

For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation, the Government in India has announced its plan on investing around US$ 2.86 Bn for drilling more than 120 oil exploration wells and increasing the natural gas production to 60 bcm by 2022. As membrane air dryers are used to drive pneumatic pumps & actuators and operate drill rigs, increasing offshore oil & gas exploration activities are estimated to accelerate the growth in the Asia Pacific excluding Japan market.

Market Competition

Some of the leading players in the membrane air dryers market are Donaldson Company Inc., Sullair Inc., Praker Co., Pentain Corp, Gardner Denver, Inc., Atlas Copco Corp, and others.
