Membrane Microfiltration Market: Water Treatment Application Segment Expected to Remain Dominant During 2018-208
Several traditional techniques such as pasteurisation, heat treatment, and sterilisation have long been used to improve the shelf life of milk. One of the newest alternatives to heat treatment is microfiltration that reduces bacteria and improves the shelf life of dairy products, while also preserving the basic taste. Adoption of membrane microfiltration in milk is one of the trends being witnessed in the global market, according to a new research study on the global membrane microfiltration market by Future Market Insights. An increasing adoption of ceramic microfiltration membranes for cross flow filtration in water plants is another key trend, as ceramic membranes help maintain a high filtration rate and ensure enhanced savings in membrane replacement costs.
Manufacturers in the membrane microfiltration market are producing robust microfiltration systems using large filter cartridges that occupy lesser space and eliminate the number of filtration system connections, thereby reducing maintenance costs. A preference for continuous fermentation over batch processing is also being observed, with manufacturers increasingly deploying membrane microfiltration technology in their plants. These trends are likely to positively impact revenue growth of the global membrane microfiltration market in the coming years. According to Future Market Insights forecasts, sales revenue in the membrane microfiltration market is anticipated to cross US$ 8 Bn by 2028, from an estimated value of about US$ 3.8 Bn in 2018. A decadal growth rate of 7.8% can be attributed to several factors, of which Future Market Insights throws deeper insights in this research study.

Increasing Applications in Industrial Biotechnology and Widespread Use of Large Molecule Biopharmaceuticals Pushing Revenue Growth of the Global Membrane Microfiltration Market
Membrane microfiltration is finding application in the production of biofuel and bio refineries are incorporating this technology to lower the overall energy costs and reduce industrial bio waste. Membrane microfiltration is also increasingly used in biodiesel processes where this technology is used to reuse water especially in areas of water scarcity. The rising industrial applications of membrane microfiltration are fuelling revenue growth in the global market. Also, filtration is a critical component of biopharmaceuticals production, and membrane microfiltration is widely used to remove cellular debris and other cellular colloids. With a growing adoption of large molecule biopharmaceuticals owing to their therapeutic properties, the demand for membrane microfiltration technology in the production of biopharmaceuticals is expected to surge in the near future.
Membrane microfiltration is also extensively used in the food and beverages industry as a technology to separate and purify components and improve the quality and yield of food products. An increasing use in vegetable and fruit juices, fermented dairy products, milk and dairy products, non-alcoholic beverages, and other food and beverage products is expected to spur revenue growth of the global membrane microfiltration market to a significant extent. One of the other critical application areas of membrane microfiltration is in water treatment plants. Membrane microfiltration helps remove unwanted particles from water before the water is treated for purity using other processes such as reverse osmosis. A growing need for quality potable water is further driving growth of the membrane microfiltration market.
