Wednesday, 06. November 2019 11:58

Dublin, Nov. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Gas Separation Membranes Market by Material type (Polyimide & Polyaramide, Polysulfone, and Cellulose Acetate), Application (Nitrogen Generation & Oxygen Enrichment, Carbon Dioxide Removal, & Hydrogen Recovery), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The gas separation membranes market size is estimated at USD 846 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 1.1 billion by 2024.

The growth of this market is attributed to the increasing demand for carbon dioxide removal in emerging countries such as China, India, Indonesia, and South Korea. However, regulations related to the plasticization of polymeric membranes are restraining the growth of the gas separation membranes market.

Carbon dioxide removal application is estimated to be the largest segment of the gas separation membranes market.

The carbon dioxide removal segment was the largest application of gas separation membranes in 2018. The reservoirs present in South East Asian countries and the increasing demand for shale gas in North America are driving the market for carbon dioxide removal application. Gas separation membranes are also used for various other applications such as nitrogen generation & oxygen enrichment, hydrogen recovery, vapor/gas separation, vapor/vapor separation, and air dehydration.

APAC is projected to be the largest gas separation membranes market, in terms of value, during the forecast period.

The APAC gas separation membranes market is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is driven mainly by the high demand for carbon dioxide removal from reservoirs, rising demand for sanitation and fresh water, increasing urbanization, and improving the standard of living. High growth and innovation, along with industry consolidations, are expected to lead to the rapid growth of the market in APAC.
