The membrane contactor market size is estimated to be USD 257 million in 2020 and projected to reach USD 340 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2020 to 2025. Membrane contactors are globally used for degassing industrial liquids and have gradually displaced older technologies such as vacuum towers, forced draft deaerators, and oxygen scavengers. The increasing use of membrane contactors in degassing applications and their preference over other conventional equipment—such as vacuum towers and packed towers—have boosted their demand in recent years.

Water & wastewater treatment segment dominated the demand for membrane contactor market in 2020
Based on application, the membrane contactor market has been classified into the food processing, pharmaceuticals processing, water & wastewater treatment, microelectronics & semiconductors, power & steam generation, oil & gas, and others segments. The water & wastewater treatment segment is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2020, owing to the increasing use of membrane contactors in industrial wastewater processing and municipal water treatment plants.
Polypropylene segment is expected to account for the largest share and exhibit highest CAGR of the membrane contactor market during the forecast period
Based on membrane, the global membrane contactor market is segregated into polypropylene, polytetrafluoroethylene and others including membranes made of materials such as PMP, PFA, PVDF and composites. Among these, polypropylene segment accounted for the largest share. This is because membrane contactors commercialized under the brand Liqui-Cel by the 3M Company generally use polypropylene microporous hollow fiber membrane. These membrane contactors contain thousands of microporous polypropylene hollow fibers knitted into an array that is wound around a distribution tube. The hollow fibers are arranged in a uniform open packing, allowing greater flow capacity and utilization of the total membrane surface area.
Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest consumer of membrane contactor market
By region, Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate the global membrane contactor market with market size of USD 93 million in 2020. The rising population, rapid urbanization, and growing economies of China, India, and Vietnam are attracting significant investments, particularly in water and wastewater projects, and are among the major factors expected to drive the membrane contactor market in Asia Pacific. Countries such as the US, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, and Germany are focusing on R&D to develop a more efficient and economical membrane separation technology.
