In 2022, the polymeric type held the largest market share in the global nanofiltration membrane market. Polymeric membranes, composed of nonporous polymeric materials, are recognized for their exceptional performance. They are categorized into tubular, flat sheet, spiral-wound, and hollow-fiber membranes. Among these, the tubular membrane segment dominated with over 32.6% revenue share. Tubular membranes are positioned inside a tube and operate with an inside-out flow configuration. The water & wastewater treatment segment represents the largest market segment for nanofiltration membranes globally, driven by their use in various applications including desalination. NF membranes offer lower energy consumption and higher flux rates compared to reverse osmosis. They find applications in diverse industrial sectors for wastewater treatment.
North America dominates the global nanofiltration membrane market with a 31.8% share in 2022. The region utilizes these membranes extensively in industrial and municipal water treatment processes, mitigating freshwater scarcity. The demand for nanofiltration membranes from the industrial sector further boosts the market. In Europe, the demand for water reuse and recycling solutions, along with various end-user industries, drives the market.
