The global Polymer Nanomembrane Market size is estimated to be USD 637 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 1,103 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 11.6% between 2021 and 2026. The polymer nanomembrane market is expected to witness a steady growth forecast period due to growth in the water & wastewater treatment industry.
The evolution of nanotechnology over time has led to a breakthrough for the membrane segment. The nanomembrane produced from polymer (PAN, PVDF, PES, and others) constitutes polymer nanomembrane. The pore size of the membrane in the range of nanometers (1nm to 300 nm). These membranes are mainly utilized as nanofiltration membranes and nanofiber membranes in various end-use applications. The nanofiltration membrane finds its application for membrane separation processes in the water & wastewater treatment industry and industrial processes. Nanofiber membranes are utilized in pharmaceutical and other industries such as textiles for providing high breathability and controlled permeability.

Based on type, the polymer nanomembrane market is segmented into polyacrylonitrile (PAN), polyethylene (PE), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), polyamide, polypropylene (PP), polyethersulfone (PES), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and others. These are the different types of polymers utilized in the production of nanomembranes. For instance, PVDF and PE provide hydrophobic membranes, whereas, PES provides hydrophilic membranes.
Based on end use industry, the market is segmented into water & wastewater treatment, chemical, electronics, oil & gas, food & beverages, pharmaceutical & biomedical, and others. The water & wastewater treatment industry is the largest end user of polymer nanomembrane. Nanomembranes are utilized as nanofiltration, nanofiber, and other membranes for various end-use applications. Unlike reverse osmosis, which blocks all solutes, the nanofiltration membrane selectively allows monovalent ions to pass through. NF membrane operates under lower pressure and is utilized in various process solutions such as water purification, desalination, separation, whey demineralization & concentration, and others. It is also used in facemasks, protective apparel, and others.
The polymer nanomembrane market is studied for five regions, namely, North America, APAC, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America accounted for the largest share of the polymer nanomembrane market in 2020, followed by Europe and APAC. US, China and Germany are major markets for polymer nanomembrane in North America, APAC and Europe respectively. The increased demand for polymer nanomembrane in North America is due to growing urbanization, aging water treatment utilities, faster adoption of newer technologies, and declining freshwater resources. The US is a developed market focused on newer applications of membranes such as polymer nanomembrane in chemical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical & biomedical, oil & gas, and water & wastewater. The country offers a favorable business environment with a strong infrastructure, supportive government policies, and a growing demand for sustainable water management solutions.
The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 impacted the global economy, with governments enforcing regulations and restrictions to minimize the spread of the virus. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the world GDP growth rate in 2020 was -3.3% and is projected to grow by 6% in 2021 and 4.4% in 2022. Due to lockdowns, business activities halted for many food & beverage, processing industries, water & wastewater treatment, and other industries. Nanomembrane is utilized for purification, separation, demineralization, concentration, and other processes in various industries. COVID-19 impacted these industries, which further impacted the nanomembrane market. However, the market is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period, with business operations returning to normal.
