Membrane Chemicals Market Analysis – By Function

Anti-scalant & Antifoulants held the largest share of more than 40% in the membrane chemicals market in 2021. Antiscalant is an additive for reverse osmosis system that is highly effective in preventing the membranes from scaling. Antiscalants function is designed to eliminate scale and reduce fouling in membranes systems and keeps fouling material in suspension. Antisealants & antifoulants include calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate, strontium sulfate, calcium fluoride, iron, colloidal material, silica, and other organic contaminants which helps to maintain cleaner membrane surfaces by dispersing particulate antifoulants. Antiscalant is injected into the water and creates a time delay between the bicarbonate and the calcium-magnesium. The delay allows the water to pass through the membrane system before any chemical reaction which helps to form scale. Thus, the scale does not form as the water is being purified by the reverse osmosis system. The antiscalants are suitable and effectively used in a range of feedwater sources, including wastewater. In June 2019, Iran projected their wastewater treatment plant at a cost of about US$7.2 million and the plant can treat 7,333 ccs of water per day. In January 2018, Microdyn – Nadir, the waste treatment firm announced the acquisitions of Oltremare which will expand its wide range of membrane filtration products, including reverse osmosis to provide its global customer base.
