Global Ion Exchange Membrane Market to Reach US$ 1,162.7 Million by 2027, Impelled by the Widespread Product Adoption in Water Treatment Plants

Published on May 11, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Ion Exchange Membrane Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global ion exchange membrane market reached a value of US$ 886.1 Million in 2021. Ion exchange membranes (IEMs) are semipermeable membranes used for the separation of cations and inions from fluids. They consist of high concentrations of fixed charges and transport specific dissolved ions, while blocking other ions or neutral molecules from the fluid flow. The membranes are commonly available in perfluorocarbon, chlor-alkali, composite hydrocarbon, and inorganic and partially halogenated variants. IEM enables the separation, exclusion and concentration of ionic material from the fluid flow. As compared to traditionally used membranes, IEMs are more advanced and cost-effective, exhibits lower electrical resistance and higher strength, showcases excellent long-tern stability and resistance to aqueous acid solutions, and assists in reducing hard water and removing dissolved inorganic ions.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Ion Exchange Membranes Market Trends

The increasing demand for wastewater treatment, especially in developing regions, along with the rising concerns regarding clean drinking water and sanitation are likely to drive the ion exchange membranes market growth.
