Global PVDF Membrane Market (2020 to 2025) - Increasing Demand for Treated Water in Emerging Economies Presents Opportunities

4 December 2020

Dublin, Dec. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "PVDF Membrane Market by Type (Hydrophilic, Hydrophobic), Technology, Application (General Filtration, Sample Preparation, Bead-based Assays), End-use Industry (Biopharmaceutical, Industrial, Food & Beverage), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global PVDF membrane market size was USD 700.0 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 925.4 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.0% from 2020.

The increasing demand from biopharmaceutical industries and stringent regulations regarding the emission and treatment of municipal and industrial waste are the major drivers boosting the demand for PVDF membrane market globally. The growing usage of PVDF membrane in microfiltration, venting applications, and medical accessories and increasing demand for treated water in emerging economies provide growth opportunities for manufacturers pf PVDF membrane. However, the high production cost of PVDF membrane and issues related to life span and efficiency related to PVDF membrane are the factors hindering the growth of the market.

Hydrophilic type segment to capture the highest share in PVDF membrane market during the forecast period.

The hydrophilic type is the most-widely used PVDF membrane owing to its various physical properties, such as high porosity, chemical & abrasion resistance, particle retention, convenience in handling, high filtration efficiency, and high flow rates. Due to these properties, hydrophilic PVDF finds extensive use in filtration applications involving exposure to aqueous solutions and gasses. It is extensively used in gas and aqueous solution filtration applications in food & beverage, chemical & petrochemical, biopharmaceutical, processing, and other industries.

Ultrafiltration to be the largest technology segment

Ultrafiltration technology accounted for the largest share of the PVDF membrane market in 2019. Ultrafiltration involves finely porous membranes to separate water and micro solutes from macromolecules and colloids. In ultrafiltration, the mechanism for the separation of the solvent from the solute/colloidal particle is similar to that of reverse osmosis and nanofiltration with distinction in pore sizes.

General filtration to be the largest application of PVDF membrane

Based on application, the PVDF membrane membranes market is segmented into general filtration, sample preparation, bead-based assays, and others. The general filtration application segment accounted for the larger market share in 2019. This is due to its extensive use in filtration end-use industries such as biopharmaceutical, petrochemical, and food & beverage. Chemical inertness, the ability to sustain high temperature, good mechanical properties, and high filtration efficiency make PVDF membranes suitable for industrial filtration applications, where they are exposed to corrosive environments and come in contact with gasses, acids, solvents, and alkaline solutions.

Biopharmaceutical to account for the largest market share for the forecast period

The biopharmaceutical industry holds the largest share of the PVDF membrane market in 2020. Increasing investment in R&D for the biotechnology and medical industry is expected to propel the growth of the PVDF membrane market globally. The market for the biopharmaceutical industry is expected to continue to grow at a relatively high rate in the next five years, providing a large market for manufacturers of PVDF membrane.

APAC is the largest and fastest-growing PVDF membranes market during the forecast period.

APAC is estimated to be the largest and the fastest-growing PVDF membrane market during the forecast period. The growth of the market in this region is primarily attributed to the rapidly growing population, urbanization, and industrialization. The market growth in this region is primarily attributed to its rapidly growing population, urbanization, and industrialization. The demand for PVDF membrane is high in developing economies, such as China, India, Brazil, and Argentina. The rise in the implementation of stringent environmental regulations in the developed as well as emerging economies is also a major driver for the global PVDF membrane market.
