The global membrane bioreactor systems market is growing due to its ability to meet stringent effluent criteria along with its compact size and less operational cost as compare to other systems and equipments which are use for wastewater treatment. According to WHO, about one fifth of the world's population resides in areas where water is physically scarce, while one fourth face scarcities due to lack of infrastructure to transport water. Governments and industries have realized the importance of wastewater treatment, as a necessity and also as means to improve the bottom line. Stringent legislations for the implementation of the treatment facilities, combined with the space and operational advantages that MBRs provide, are expected to be key drivers of the market going forward. The sophistication and high capital costs associated with the system could however prove to be key obstacles.
APAC holds major market share in membrane bioreactor systems market. Europe is the second largest consumer. Countries in this region such as China and Japan use membrane bioreactors extensively for water reuse purpose in municipal application. With new factors coming into play, the MBR technology is now beginning to mature and will continue to penetrate further in the wastewater effluent treatment market.
APAC market share is 38% in the global MBR revenue market; Europe has 17% of share. However it is still the APAC region which is on the rise with a CAGR of 15.1% from 2012 to 2017. The MBR market by application is segmented into key segments as municipal and industrial wastewater treatments. The municipal wastewater applications occupy a major share in the consumption market, and are expected to be the fastest growing segment, going ahead.
Among the various types of MBR marketed, hollow fiber and flat sheet cover the major market of the membrane bioreactor, which is approximately 95.3% of the overall membrane bioreactor market. Selection is based on an evaluation of various criteria, including packing density, investment cost, fouling tendency, cleaning and operating costs, and membrane replacement costs.
