The global Microfiltration Membranes Market size is projected to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2027 from USD 1.2 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics
+ Driver: Increasing awareness regarding water & wastewater treatment
Increasing demand for microfiltration membranes in water & wastewater treatment is driving the market. Increasing population and industrial development surge the demand for water, driving the need for microfiltration membranes in water & wastewater treatment applications.

+ Restrain: Membrane fouling to reduce membrane performance
Membrane fouling is the deposition of dissolved particles or substances at pore openings or inside the membrane resulting in poor flows of feed stream through membranes. Foulants are primarily suspended particulates, colloids, and solutes in the MLSS.

+ Opportunity: Increasing demand for water treatment in developing countries
The need for water desalination from seas and oceans is likely to increase in developing countries. Microfiltration is one of the leading technologies for seawater and brackish water desalination.

+ Challenge: Lifespan and efficiency of membranes
The lifespan of microfiltration membranes used in a separation process has some operating constraints and, therefore, needs replacement after 2–5 years. Microfiltration membranes used in various processes are prone to fouling, reducing operational efficiency.

Recent Developments
+ In January 2022, SUEZ - Water Technologies & Solutions acquired Sentinel Monitoring Systems, a real-time microbial monitoring company. Sentinel Monitoring Systems develops products that provide real-time and near-real-time solutions for monitoring the effectiveness of microbial control within life sciences ultrapure water and manufacturing processes.
+ In April 2021, Koch Separation Solutions developed INDU-COR HD (High Density) – an enhanced technology for the treatment of various industrial waste streams, as a part of its tubular membrane product line. It provides a higher packing density of up to 300%, making crossflow filtration more economical while taking up less space.
