This market research report identifies players like GEA, GE Healthcare, EMD MILLIPORE, Koch Membrane, and Sartorius AG to be the key vendors in the global medical membrane market. This research report also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by technology (microfiltration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and nanofiltration), by application (protein purification, cell separation, water management, and sterilization), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global medical membrane market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global medical membrane market to grow at a CAGR of more than 9% by 2020. Membrane technology offers some unique benefits which help enhance the quality of pharmaceutical products and maintain operational efficiency. The membrane separation techniques cover enhanced applications of membrane technologies like separation, concentration, and purification. Medical membranes provide high separation accuracy, help in the production of high purity products, offer better selectivity toward essential components, and help in improving wastewater treatment. The application of membrane technology in the medical industry enables a comprehensive use of resources, besides improving the quality of pharmaceutical products.

APAC is the largest revenue-generating region in the market and is envisaged to occupy more than 46% of the overall market revenue by 2020. Factors such as increasing population, rising use of pharmaceutical products, and the growing pharmaceutical industry in developing countries such as India and China have spurred the demand for high-quality pharmaceutical products, which will bolster the usage of medical membranes in the region. The increasing number of medical membranes technology installations in countries like China, Japan, Australia, and India will also drive the growth of the market in the region during the forecast period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is fragmented with the presence of several small and large vendors, resulting in high competition. These players have a vast geographical presence with large production facilities located across the world. The possibility of new players entering this market is very less because of the strong positions of the leading players in the market who have sizeable market shares and extensive geographic reach.

Leading vendors in the market are -

  • GEA
  • GE Healthcare
  • Koch Membrane
  • Sartorius AG

Other prominent vendors in the medical membrane market include Applied Membrane Tech, Culligan International, Graver Technologies, Pall, TAMI Industries, and Veolia Water Technologies.

Segmentation by technology and analysis of the medical membrane market

  • Microfiltration
  • Ultrafiltration
  • Reverse osmosis
  • Nanofiltration

The microfiltration will continue its dominance in the market during the forecast period and is likely to occupy more than 44% of the total market share by 2020. The growing application of microfiltration in wastewater treatment and process water treatment in the medical industry and the increased use of microfiltration membranes as pre-filters to ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis are the major factors for the growth of this segment. Microfiltration membranes are used as a pre-treatment for desalination processes and remove turbidity from the fluid. Membrane microfiltration is used across several industries including pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, semiconductors, laboratories, and others. With the growing usage of these membranes for cell separation, the segment will contribute significantly to the growth of the overall market in the coming years.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the medical membrane market

  • Protein purification
  • Cell separation
  • Water management
  • Sterilization

During 2015, the protein purification segment dominated the market and accounted for around 40% of the overall market share. The process has extensive usage in the medical industry to characterize the structure, function, and interactions of the protein to be used in medicine or a supplement. Factors such as funding from public and private research firms, advancements in technology in single-use purification technique, and increasing R&D in structure-based drug design, will propel the growth of the segment during the predicted period.
