Spiral Wound Membrane Market

Spiral Wound Membrane Market: Global Industry Analysis 2015 - 2019 and Opportunity Assessment; 2020 - 2030

Market Overview

Spiral Wound Membrane Market: Introduction

The spiral wound membrane is consists of several elements including feed spacers, membranes, permeate spacers, and a permeate tube. In the spiral wound membrane configuration, a spacer and flat membrane sheet are wound around the permeate collection tube to yield flow channels for feedwater and permeate.

Moreover, the spiral wound membrane elements cross the spectrum of membrane including nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO), microfiltration (MF), and ultrafiltration (UF). The spiral wound membrane is primarily designed for water desalination.

But nowadays, spiral wound membrane is used across widespread applications including in the dairy industry, sulfate removal, dye desalting and concentration, and oil separation in water and wastewater treatment, among many others.

In the market, the spiral wound membrane is available in multiple configurations with different types of membranes, spacers, and size & shape that allow its utilization in a variety of applications across various industries.

Furthermore, ease of cleaning {through cleaning in place (CIP)} and packing density makes the spiral wound membrane more advantageous for use in several industries.

Spiral Wound Membrane Market: Dynamics

Growth of water and wastewater treatment industry become a key dynamic factor for spiral wound membrane market growth across the globe. Rapid urbanization coupled with population growth is influencing the demand for clean and safe water.

Such an aspect increasing the investment in water and wastewater treatment industry to build an advanced treatment plant, desalination plant, and water recycles facilities to provide clean water to inhabitants.

Such factor is projected to pave the way for the robust growth of the spiral wound membrane market in the coming years. Moreover, continuous investment in research and development to develop advanced and innovative water purification technologies are also likely to boost the spiral wound membrane demand across the globe.

In addition, several advantages of spiral wound membrane configuration such as tubular, plate & frame and hollow fiber module design for most of RO applications in water treatment compared to the other modular design.

Although, some of the disadvantages of the spiral wound membrane such as spiral element fouling are greater than fouling in tubular filtration processes. Owing to high packing density, spiral wound membrane not handling the mechanical cleaning process like tubular elements.

Such factor is expected to create challenges for spiral wound membrane market growth in the near future.

Spiral Wound Membrane Market: Regional Outlook

From the regional perspective, the spiral wound membrane market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years. The Asia Pacific is estimated to account for dominating share in the spiral wound market across the globe.

Growing awareness to recycle and reuse of wastewater, and provide safe and clean drinking water is likely to influence the demand for spiral wound membrane. Moreover, various government initiatives and rules & regulations such as “Water Pollution Prevention & Control Law”, and The Water Resource Law, among others are expected to attribute towards the adoption of spiral wound membrane across various industries in the Asia Pacific region.

Moreover, North America followed by Europe is also expected to register exponential growth in the global spiral wound membrane market in the coming years. The adoption of advanced water purification technologies in the region is the prime driving factor for spiral wound membrane market growth in the coming years.

Moreover, increasing investment to build water and wastewater treatment plants to recycle and reuse wastewater, desalination, and to reduce water pollution are further up the adoption of spiral wound membrane in Latin America and the Middle East & Africa region.
