To calculate the market size, the report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
RO is a technology that uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove dissolved salts or organic molecules from water. The water is pushed under pressure through the membrane, which allows the passage of water molecules but prevents the dissolved salts and bacteria from passing through.
One trend in the market is improvement in membrane technology. Membrane technologies play a vital role in water and energy sustainability. Some membrane technologies, such as wastewater treatment by membrane reactors and desalination by RO, are already being applied in industries on a large scale.
According to the report, one driver in the market is advances in technologies. RO has become an important demineralization technique worldwide. Since the development of the first commercially viable RO membranes during the 1950s, improvements in performance and durability have resulted in membranes, which are more efficient and less costly to operate. For instance, low-energy RO membranes have succeeded in delivering high-quality permeate and high productivity with low-pressure requirements. This advance has allowed RO membranes to operate on low-temperature feed water sources that otherwise would require prohibitively high operating pressure.
