[Online Quarterly Update] Global Reverse Osmosis (RO) Membrane market stood at USD 11.92 Billion in 2020 and is forecast to reach USD 24.216 Billion by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 7.36% until 2030. Growing focus on decreasing operational costs of zero liquid discharge systems and constantly increasing regulations on wastewater discharge from various industries has been influencing the demand for Reverse Osmosis Membranes market across the globe. Rapid urbanization and increasing industrialization have resulted in unprecedented scarcity of usable water. With the rising awareness about the urgent need to install desalination plants, Reverse Osmosis Membranes have become the most widely used option and their demand is increasing on global level. Besides, increasing incidences of water-borne diseases is creating a need for advanced technology that provides safe and toxin-free water, which is adding to the demand of reverse osmosis membranes. Demand for ultrapure water in the food and beverage industry and rise in urban population are contributing to the growth of reverse osmosis membrane market. However, short longevity of RO membranes as well as loss of vital materials during the purification process can limit the market growth of global reverse osmosis membrane market.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has a fluctuating impact in the demand for water purifier, across the world. In 2020, especially in the second and third quarter, major COVID-19 affected countries like U.S., India, China, Brazil, Italy, and others have witnessed steep decline in sales of the product owing to closing of retail outlets, financial crunch among the consumers, along with supply side interruptions. Moreover, the pandemic will result in a shift towards online sales from that of traditional brick and motor retailing, as more and more people are opting for online sales to avoid contacting with people and to get safe delivery at home.
Among different regions, Asia Pacific region dominated the global Reverse Osmosis Membrane market. Due to rapid industrialization and increasing environmental concerns in major economies such as China, India and the ASEAN countries, the region is expected to register fastest growth. Government initiatives of installing municipal desalination systems as a response to rising water pollution is expected to increase the demand of Reverse Osmosis Membranes in the forecast period.
