Membrane separation is one of the most popular technologies used for separating materials through pores or minute gaps. It is a thin layer material with selective penetration functions used for concentration, purification and separation. Membrane separation technique facilitates several industries to reuse wastewater and reduce sewage footprint from the fresh water resources. Separating membrane is made up of organic or inorganic raw materials. Inorganic materials are usually metal and ceramic; whereas, organic materials mainly refer to all types of chemical substances. Ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes are usually made from polysulfone, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and others.

The demand for clean processed drinking water is propelling, attributed to mandatory government regulations for providing clean processed drinking water to consumers. Adherence of environmental standards required by governments in the area of water scarcity, has led to the demand for better water treatment techniques, including membrane separation method. Expanding usage of ultrafiltration processes and microfiltration membranes as pre-filters for reverse osmosis are expected to drive membrane separation market growth. Various advantages of membrane separation technologies over conventional separation technologies include low energy consumption, easy installation, gentle product treatment, and high selectivity.
