I. Initial Position

Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is advancing very rapidly around the world, in terms of technology, research and commercial application. The global market for MBR technology for wastewater treatment, both in the municipal and industrial sector has steadily increased since the lasted years. We expect strong increase because of the need to recycle and reuse wastewater and the stricter environmental regulations worldwide, also new applications in the industry and new developments. Biosolids management and energy recovery have increasingly become an important component of wastewater treatment operations.

Market, Business, Technologies, Plants, Applications, Trends, Water and Wastewater
Municipal, Industrial, Residential

In the last few years, the global market for MBR technology has been increasing, with different growth rates depending on the region and state of market of the particular regions. The global market of 450 million US$ for the equipment segment of the value chain alone, will be expected to grow with more then 8 percent per year. The turnover of the whole value chain is of course much higher which the study stated and show in the future development.

The profit potential is very different within the value chain.  The driving factor for the growth of this market is waster stress, in particular in the Pacific area and legislation support growth of the global MBR market. The largest application is in the municipal/residential sector, accounting for most of the market segment. Sewage treatment both municipally and industrially still is and will continue to be the primary use of MBR systems. Membrane bioreactor systems are used in water reuse, new housing developments, parks and resorts, retrofits, and turnkey projects but more and more rebuilding and second build.

World wide there is a trend towards larges capacity municipal plants. Smaller sized plants are however being used in smaller communities and residential area and industry. The current MBR market is still dominated by northern Europe, USA and Canada, however regions in Asia are showing very high growth rates and they will be one of the key players in this market in the near future. An important market worldwide is the drinking water production from waste water, reuse and recycling, new water and drinking water from sewage plants.

The majority of the MBR market worldwide is occupied by some multinational companies in USA, Japan and Germany but with new development this could be changed within the next years. Especially companies looking at the whole value chain and turnkey projects with it will win the competition.

This study explore the markets and market developments ,  different technologies and applications, value chain, competition  and profit potentials  for Membrane bioreactors, the application of MBRs in municipal, residential and industrial sector, as well as detailed market analysis globally, in regions and leading countries. The competition, current state of development and overview of the current installed and running plants, new plants and new projects will also be discussed in this study with over 350 pages.
