MARKET OVERVIEW- EUROPE FORWARD OSMOSIS TECHNOLOGY MARKET

Forward osmosis is a water separation process that uses a semi-permeable membrane and the natural energy of osmotic pressure to separate water from solutes. Osmotic pressure is used to transport water across the membrane while keeping all solutes on the other side. Large scale industrialization has led to rapid economic growth. This has also stimulation huge uptake in manufacturing capability of most countries. But at the same time, this has also led to depletion of major water sources and water bodies especially in municipal and large urban areas. Also, waste water treatment is an increasing issue glooming in everyday life. Therefore forward osmosis technology has been keenly shown to have presented a great solution to providing and improving the adequate consumable water supply. Industrial water management is one of the key use of forward osmosis and this factor is anticipated to provide ample of new growth opportunity for the market in the Europe region in the upcoming years.
