Global Reverse Osmosis Membrane Market is valued approximately USD 2.8 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 10.0% over the forecast period 2021-2027. Reverse osmosis is a type of membrane separation in which a solution is forced through a membrane that traps the solute while allowing the pure solvent to pass through. This membrane is often intended to enable only water to flow through while the solutes (such as salt ions) are segregated. The market is being driven by the rising demand for RO membrane in water and wastewater treatment. Furthermore, the RO membrane market is being driven by rising water shortages and changing government laws requiring the treatment of industrial and municipal wastewater. The market is also being driven by rising demand for industrial process water and urbanization in emerging economies such as APAC, the Middle East and Africa, and South America. The water and wastewater treatment industry is driven by government regulations and rising demand for clean, treated drinking water. Various government initiatives have been launched, including Australia’s Water Management Action Plan (2009) and the Environmental and Resource Efficiency Plan (2008), China’s Special Plan for Seawater Utilization (2005), and the United States’ Clean Water Act. It is utilised in the saltwater treatment process as it can separate dissolved solids, bacteria, viruses, and other dissolved substances. For instance, in 2020, DuPont Water Solutions has introduced dry-tested seawater reverse osmosis components, allowing for a smooth transition from wet to dry testing while also increasing shelf life and storage flexibility. Its goal is to generate long-term operating advantages while exceeding membrane performance criteria.

The main regions of Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World are included in the geographical analysis of the worldwide Reverse Osmosis Membrane market. The Middle East and North Africa is the largest RO membrane market, followed by Asia Pacific, which is also the fastest expanding. Due to the issue of water shortage, several Middle Eastern and North African nations are expected to continue investing in desalination facilities. Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest manufacturer and end-user of RO membranes. Due to the rising number of multinational firms establishing Filter Module ion plants and offices in the country, it is expected to lead the Middle East & North America RO membrane market. Around 5% of the world’s population lives in the region, which has less than 1% of the world’s water resources, creating a serious concern of water shortage; nevertheless, it has successfully tapped aquifers and built a large network of desalination facilities.
