Ultrafiltration is a pressure-driven barrier to suspend solids, bacteria, viruses, endotoxin and other pathogens. It is a membrane filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces liquid against semi-permeable membrane. The ultrafiltration filter has pore size of around 0.01 micron. This technique is majorly used to produce the product with high purity and low slit density. The rapid expansion around the world results in large volumes of wastewater being discharged therefore demand for water and wastewater treatment is increasing with rising industrialization and urbanization. On the other hand treatment of industrial waste is essential because these waste contains different substances such as food scrap, oils, soaps and toxic chemicals, water suspension, viruses, heavy metals, fluorides, chlorides, by-products of disinfection and pesticide residues are all likely to pose a health threat and can have negative impact on nature and human if not treated properly. Besides 75% of India’s rural population do not have the source for clean water and safe drinking water whereas more than 80% of India’s diseases and 33% of deaths are caused primarily by contaminated drinking water. For instance, according to United Nations Water, 80% of wastewater flows back into the ecosystem without being treated or reused, thereby resulting in 1.8 billion people to use it as a source of drinking water especially in rural areas. Various government initiatives for providing suitable drinking water to consumers such as the Clean Water Act and European Drinking Directive promote the need for water and wastewater treatment. Therefore the need for water & wastewater treatment is expected to drive the market growth for ultrafiltration in upcoming years.
The major driver for the ultrafiltration market is increasing awareness among people about water borne disease. Beside new innovation and technologies of ultrafiltration is fueling the market growth. The key factor for the growth is rise in population and expansion of industries across globe doing merge and acquisition with top companies. The selective separation technology of ultrafiltration make this market as a major preference for industrial sector. In addition the demand for pure product in food & beverages, healthcare industries is fueling the market growth. For instance in June, 2020 Synder Filtration announced the launch of Optima Flow Series elements, this product is available for existing ultrafiltration and microfiltration standard and MAX membrane types.
The exclusive COVID 19 impact analysis report by Axiom MRC provides a 360 degree analysis of micro and macro-economic factors on the Ultrafiltration market.

The Ultrafiltration market is segmented based on by type, by module, by application and geography.
The Ultrafiltration market have the membrane type polymeric and ceramic. Polymeric membrane is the membrane casted and penetrates the support layer to increase membrane life and eliminate fiber breaks. These membrane are majorly used in waste water application with advance in polymer coating technologies. Specific polymeric membrane selection prove to have excellent membrane life for particular applications. Polymeric membrane is the most cost effective for ultrafiltration applications. The polymeric type is anticipated to account the largest share due to cost effectiveness and vast availabity hence there is growing demand for ultrafiltration market in the upcoming years. Ceramic membrane open a range of Ultrafiltration application for the treatment of highly turbid water. Ceramic membrane are widely available at lower costs. In addition saltworks have developed robust process and control system to keep ceramic membranes clean.
The Ultrafiltration module are available in hollow fiber and tubular. The hollow fiber module has hundreds of tubes resembling tiny straws bundled together to create filter matrix. The walls of these tubes are filled with microscopic pores which ultimately prevents the pathogen entry. Hollow fiber filtration utilizes thousands of long, porous filaments ranging from 1-3.5 mm wide that are potted in PVC shell. The hollow fiber module is projected to account the largest share of the ultrafiltration market due to its high throughput and ease of cleanliness when compared to other filtration.
Ultrafiltration market find its major application in municipal treatment and industrial treatment. The industrial segment is anticipated to lead the ultrafiltration market in the upcoming years. The ultrafiltration is widely used in the different sectors like food & beverages specifically for emphasis on excellent pH and temperature resistance. The major demand of ultrafiltration market include in dairy industry, biotechnology for the production of ultrapure water for microelectronics, oil emulsion waste. Ultrafiltration represents an alternative technology to RO technologies for the water purification as it has low operating cost and adaptive. In Municipal treatment the ultrafiltration is an effective method for reducing slit density index of water and removing particulates that can foul osmosis membrane. Ultrafiltration is used in water and wastewater treatment plants for elimination of microbes, desalination of seawater, sewage treatment, household wastewater treatment and treatment of natural mineral water, production of drinking water and treatment of brackish water. Ultrafiltration is an effective means of reducing the silt density index of water and removing particulates that can foul reverse osmosis membranes.
Geographically the ultrafiltration market is studied for the following region North America, Europe, APAC and Rest of the world.North America has a significant share and is expected to grow its market in the ultrafiltration as the demand is increasing due to high level of pollution from industrial, commercial and residential waste. APAC region is the largest market for the ultrafiltration. The growth is attributed to large industrial base in the region and increasing demand for ultrafiltration from pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries in the region. Furthermore, rise in awareness of water and wastewater treatment and growing scarcity of fresh water is expected to propel the demand for the ultrafiltration.
