Global Pharmaceutical Membrane Filtration Technologies Market- Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)

The global market for pharmaceutical membrane filtration technologies is expected to reach USD 9.2 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 13.9%.

Membrane technology covers all industrial approaches for the passage of substances between two segments with the help of permeable membranes. In general, machine-driven separation processes for separating gaseous or liquid streams use membrane technology. Membrane separation processes function without heating and therefore, use less energy than straight thermal separation processes such as distillation, sublimation or crystallization. The separation process is purely physical and both segments (permeate and retentate) can be used.

The market growth is driven by the stringent environmental protocols and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in the pharmaceutical industry. However, membrane fouling concerns and high capital investments for operations are the major challenges faced by the market.

Currently, North America holds the largest market share, followed by Europe. APAC is the fastest growing segment. The global pharmaceutical membrane filtration technologies market can be segmented on the basis of technology (pressure-driven operations, concentration-driven operations, electric potential gradient operations, and temperature gradient operations), material type (polymeric membranes, non-polymeric membranes), structure type (microporous membranes, homogenous membranes, asymmetric membranes, electrically charged membranes, liquid membranes and others), application (cell harvesting, biomass recovery, sterilization, protein purification, virus removal, water management, adsorptive depth filtration and others), and geography.

Some of the key players in the market are:

Alfa Laval
GEA Group
Koch Membrane Systems
Merck Millipore
Pall Corporation
