The rising need for filtration of wastewater and increasing demand from the chemical industry are projected to drive the PVDC membrane market during the forecast period.
The global PVDF membrane market is expected to be valued at USD 1,072.3 Million in 2027 from USD 582.3 Million in 2019, registering a CAGR of 7.9% through the forecast period. PVDF polyvinylidene fluoride membrane is a type of popular polymer and exhibits extraordinary properties, including superior chemical resistance, outstanding thermal stability, excellent process-ability, and several mechanical properties.
An economic and ideal substitute for PTFE membrane, PVDF membrane aids in blocking the water in ventilation or gas filtrations. This membrane possesses high protein binding capacity and offers enhanced sensitivity. PVDF membrane has widespread applications, including water treatment, removal of pollutants, gas separation, bioethanol recovery, and distillation of PVDF membrane. Moreover, as a separator, this membrane is highly used for lithium-ion batteries. However, PVDF membrane’s inherent hydrophobic characteristics make it highly susceptible to organic matter fouling, leading to bacterial contamination or pore blocking.
PVDF membrane’s one primary usage is the water treatment for separation and purification purpose. Additionally, it is majorly used for purifying municipal wastewater, in the concentration of fermentation broths, and for brine water’s pre-treatment. Different types of PVDF membranes have been developed for removing bacteria, viruses, suspended solids, emulsified oils, colloids, proteins, metal hydroxides, and various organic matters from water, wastewater, and other solutions.
Key Highlights of Report
- In June 2020, a renowned firm, MICRODYN-NADIR launched an exclusive brand for their hollow-fiber PVDF ultrafiltration products. This—MICRODYN PureULTRA is largely used for treating surface water, groundwater, tertiary treated wastewater, and seawater.
- Hydrophilic PVDF membrane showcases reduced protein binding properties along with increased flow rate and enhanced loading capacity. It is mainly utilized for removing bacteria from protein solutions and culture mediums.
- Ultrafiltration—a pressure-driven purification method, used for separating particles from distinct soluble compounds with the help of ultrafine membranes. It is the most commonly used technology in the pretreatment of reverse osmosis and desalination, and wastewater reclamation.
- Rising investments in the activities of R&D by several biopharmaceutical companies are fueling the end-use industry segment’s growth.
- The Asia Pacific region held the highest industry share in 2019, owing to increasing population and growing urbanization as well as industrialization. Elevating need for industrial wastewater filtration and treatment in the region is further boosting the PVDF membrane market.
