  • (1888PressRelease) January 11, 2013 - Wellesley, Mass. - According to a new technical market research report, MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGIES FOR LIQUID AND GAS SEPARATIONS (MST041F), from BCC Research (www.bccresearch.com), the U.S. market for membrane modules used in gas and liquid separations was valued at $1.6 billion in 2010 and should reach $2.1 billion in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach nearly $3.3 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9%.

    The U.S market for membrane modules can be broken down into two main segments: conventional liquid separations and other separations.

    The segment made up of conventional liquid separations is expected to have a value of $1.9 billion in 2012 and $2.9 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 8.9%.

    As a segment, all other separations should reach $218 million in 2012 and $329 million in 2017, a CAGR of 8.6%.

    Membranes generally are thin sheets or surface films, natural or man-made, with apertures through which small molecules may pass while larger ones are retained. At its most basic, a membrane serves as a sieve, separating solids from liquids forced through it. Membranes fabricated from various materials (mainly synthetic polymers) can efficiently filter particles down to the size range of molecules or ions.

    Separated chemicals are not destroyed but are concentrated to facilitate reclamation. The membranes are called semipermeable because some substances will pass through while others will not. Usually, small ions, water, solvents, gases, and other very small molecules can pass easily through a membrane, while other ions and macromolecules, like proteins and colloids, are retained.
