Asia Pacific Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Market to Reach US$ 3.2 Billion by 2032, Fuelled by Expanding Water Scarcity in the Region

April 10, 2023 | Energy & Mining

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Asia Pacific Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Market Report by System Configuration (Submerged, Side Stream), Membrane Type (Hollow Fiber, Flat Sheet, Multi-Tubular, and Others), Application (Municipal Waste-Water Treatment, Industrial Waste-Water Treatment, and Others), and Country 2024-2032,” the Asia Pacific membrane bioreactor (MBR) market size reached US$ 1.7 Billion in 2023. A membrane bioreactor (MBR) is a wastewater treatment process that combines biological treatment and membrane filtration technology to treat and purify wastewater. The biological treatment method, typically an activated sludge process, removes organic matter and nutrients from the wastewater through microbial activity. On the other hand, the membrane filtration process uses a physical barrier (membrane) to separate the treated wastewater from the activated sludge. The membrane bioreactor system is utilized to help retain floating matter and separate sediments from the sludge concentration. It offers numerous advantages over conventional wastewater treatment systems, including a smaller carbon footprint, higher quality effluent, controlled biomass retention, high effectiveness against pathogens, and the ability to treat high-strength wastewater. They are commonly used in various applications such as municipal, industrial, and decentralized wastewater treatments. 

Asia Pacific Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Market Trends:

The key factor driving the Asia Pacific membrane bioreactor (MBR) market is the rising demand for clean water and effective wastewater treatment solutions in the region. In line with this, the surging adoption of the MBR technology on account of the limited availability of safe drinking water and the depleting levels of freshwater resources caused by rapid industrialization and urbanization is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread product adoption over traditional water treatment methods across the food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceuticals, and municipal industries due to its advantageous properties, such as better removal of impurities and higher efficiency in treating wastewater, is impelling the market growth. In addition to this, the increasing need for water reuse, rising public sector investments in wastewater treatment infrastructure, and the upgradation of existing water treatment facilities with MBR technology are presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, the escalating environmental concerns among consumers, combined with the implementation of numerous environmental protection laws by regional governments to conserve natural water resources and maintain proper sanitation, are contributing to the market growth. Concurrent with this, the expanding availability of government subsidies and incentives encouraging the installation of MBR technology is aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 3.2 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 7.4% during 2024-2032.
