United States Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Market to Reach US$ 1,570.4 Million by 2032, Accelerated by Stringent Government Regulations Regarding Wastewater Treatment

June 28, 2023 | Energy & Mining

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "United States 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 Region 2024-2032," the United States membrane bioreactor (MBR) market size reached US$ 733.9 Million in 2023. Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) technology is constructed using a combination of conventional biological treatment processes and membrane filtration. It consists of three major components: a biological reactor, an ultrafiltration membrane module, and a sludge handling system. The MBR process begins with the biological reactor, where microorganisms break down organic matter in the wastewater through the process of aerobic digestion. The biologically treated wastewater then flows to the membrane module, which separates the treated wastewater from the biomass and suspended solids. The membrane acts as a physical barrier, allowing water molecules to pass through while retaining particles and microorganisms. This filtration process ensures a high-quality effluent free from suspended solids, bacteria, and viruses. MBRs offer several advantages over conventional wastewater treatment systems, such as preventing the release of suspended solids and pathogens, occupying a smaller footprint,  and offering better process control. These systems can also operate under high hydraulic loading rates, resulting in a compact design and reduced infrastructure costs. Currently, there are two primary types of MBRs: submerged and side-stream.

United States Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Market Trends:

The stringent government regulations regarding wastewater treatment and environmental protection have led to an increased demand for advanced water treatment technologies, such as MBR systems, which represents one of the primary factors providing an impetus to the market growth. The MBR technology offers superior effluent quality and helps in achieving compliance with strict discharge standards. Moreover, the growing population and rapid urbanization in the country have increased the need for efficient and sustainable wastewater treatment solutions, which, in turn, is boosting the market growth. Besides this, the surging awareness among industries and municipalities about the benefits of MBR technology, such as reduced footprint, improved sludge management, and energy efficiency, is propelling the market growth. In line with this, advancements in membrane technology, including the development of high-performance membranes with enhanced fouling resistance and longer lifespan, have made MBR systems more reliable and cost-effective, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. The availability of various government grants and funding programs aimed at promoting sustainable water management practices and the growing need to upgrade existing treatment plants are also supporting the market growth. Furthermore, the rising concerns about water scarcity and the expanding pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are strengthening the market growth. On account of these factors, the market is expected to reach US$ 1,570.4 Million by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.56% during 2024-2032.
