Nanofiltration is a pressure-driven, membrane-based separation technology utilizing membranes that are capable of retaining particles and molecules with dimensions between 1 nm and 10 nm. Over the years, three main types of nanofiltration membranes have been developed: organic (primarily polymeric), inorganic (or ceramic), and hybrid (or organic/inorganic).

This research has identified a number of sectors in which nanofiltration membranes find application, including water and wastewater treatment, food and beverage, chemical and petrochemical, life science, metalworking, agriculture, and solid waste management.

This study provides an updated review of nanofiltration technology, including membrane materials, properties, configurations, fabrication processes, and applications. It also offers a detailed market analysis for these products by segment (material type, configuration, application, and region), describing technical aspects and trends that will affect future growth of this market.

Water and wastewater treatment currently account for the largest share of the market. Within this segment, nanofiltration membranes are being used primarily for water softening, water purification, desalination, and wastewater treatment.

Sales of nanofiltration membranes are projected to continue rising at a double-digit rate during the next five years. Relevant factors that will contribute to this market expansion are the following:

  • Increasing need for affordable water purification technologies to obtain potable water.
  • A greater need to recycle and reuse wastewater from the industrial process due to stricterenvironmental regulations.
  • Rising demand for the recovery of relatively rare metals from aqueous streams.
  • Higher use of nanofiltration in production of protein and sugar products.
  • Larger penetration of nanofiltration in the treatment of organic solvents.
  • Rising market penetration of nanofiltration membranes in developing countries.
  • High levels of related R&D activities
