By Charge Analysis – Segment Analysis
In 2019, the segment of the anion exchange membrane held a prominent share of the ion exchange membrane market. Nevertheless, during the forecast period its dominance is predicted to be overtaken by the anion exchange resin band. Thanks to their growing use in water purification anion exchange membranes are commonly used. Cation exchange membranes are also used widely for the purification of water.
By Structure – Segment Analysis
The ion exchange membrane market was bifurcated into homogeneous membrane and heterogeneous membrane, based on structure. The classification is based on the degree of heterogeneity in the structure of a membrane. Heterogeneity offers valuable properties such as perm selectivity, conductivity, and stability in both mechanical and chemical terms. The ionic and electrical transfer activity of the ion exchange membrane during operation is also positively affected. The heterogeneous membrane segment dominates the market for membrane ion exchange.
By Application – Segment Analysis
In a range of applications, ion exchange membranes are used including electrodialysis, electrolysis, chromatographic separation, desalination, waste water treatment, and radioactive liquid waste water treatment. The membrane technology provides various advantages, such as high energy efficiency, low maintenance costs and is environmentally friendly. In recent years, clean water issues for drinking and sanitation around the world have increased, which can fuel demand for ion exchange membranes, as they are used to extract impurities from polluted water. In India, EPA (the United States Environmental Protection Agency) is mandated by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) to create legislation to protect human health from pollutants in drinking water. The Act authorizes EPA to establish national standards for drinking water and to ensure compliance with those requirements. Hence, water treatment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast era, due to the aforesaid factors.
Geography – Segment Analysis
As regards the world, Asia Pacific accounted for the leading volume share of the global ion exchange membrane market in 2019 due to increased investments in the construction sector by governments of countries like China, India, and Thailand. North America and Europe, led by well-established players in these areas, hold a critical share of the global ion exchange membrane market. Owing to the substantial increase in water recycling and industrial wastewater management activities in developing economies such as China and India, the ion exchange membrane market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period.

Drivers – Ion Exchange Membrane Market
Anion exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFC) have developed substantially as a viable alternative to the fuel cell membrane exchange proton (PEMFC). During current flow, an anion exchange membrane (AEMFC) in an anion exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFC) conducts hydroxide anions which offer several benefits. In alkaline environments the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is much easier than in acidic environments which promote the use of less expensive non-platinum group metal (PGM) catalysts with high stability in alkaline environments. The hydroxide ions in an AEMFC are generated at the cathode during a reduction in electrochemical oxygen. They are transported through the anion conducting polymer electrolyte from the cathode to the anode, whereby they combine to form water with hydrogen. AEM ‘s chemical degradation is primarily due to nucleophilic attack by hydroxide ions on the cationic fixed charged sites, resulting in loss in the number of ion-exchange pairs, with a resultant decrease in conductivity of OH-ions.
Challenges – Ion Exchange Membrane Market
The disadvantages associated with ion exchange such as calcium sulfate fouling, iron fouling, adsorption of organic matter, organic contamination from the resin, bacterial contamination and chlorine contamination, is restraining the usage of ion exchange.
The most common regenerant (chemical used to recharge the resin) used for cation resin is sulfuric acid. Some extremely hard water contains high amounts of calcium, and when this calcium reacts with the regenerating sulfuric acid, it forms calcium sulfate as a precipitate during the regeneration process. Owning to this, the usage of ion exchange membrane forms high toxicity materials which need to be filtered properly. Thus, ion exchange membrane needs to be developed in order to reduce the toxicity, which will increase the growth of ion exchange in upcoming years.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Ion Exchange Membrane market. In 2019, the market of Ion Exchange Membrane has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Ion Exchange Membrane Market top 10 companies are The Dow Chemical Company, LANXESS AG, 3M, Ion Exchange Ltd., SUEZ, ResinTech Inc., General Electric Company, Hyflux Ltd, Parker-Hannifin Corporation, Axeon Water Technologies, and GEA Filtration, among others.
