London, United Kingdom, 2007/05/30 - Membrane Technology for Food and Beverage Processing to reach $230 million, in the next 5 years, says new report available from ReportBuyer.com.
Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors has now added a new market report titled ‘Membrane Technology for Food and Beverage Processing’
Findings in the 159 page Report include:
• Worth an estimated market value of $185 million in 2006, membrane sales to food and beverage processors is forecast to rise at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of about 4.6% during the next 5 years, reaching $230 million
• Wastewater treatment will continue to be the primary pollution prevention focus for food and beverage processors. But, another industry trend for minimizing waste and improving the bottom line is converting food byproducts to value-added products. Many conversion activities offer opportunities for membranes: transforming salts in waste to useful acids and bases, recovering blood proteins from slaughterhouse wastes, or fermentating corn starch to ethanol, corn oil and other corn co-products.
• Competitive technologies in food and beverage processing include a variety of media filters and other separation and purification methods including centrifugation, adsorption, evaporation, distillation, pasteurization and ion exchange.
Summary of the Report:
This study has been compiled to review the state of the art of membrane technology as applied to food and beverage processing, offer a valuation of the current market, and provide estimates of future growth for a market that has developed rapidly, but which also is becoming more fragmented.
The report will examine the cross flow membrane technologies: reverse osmosis (RO), Nan filtration (NF), ultra filtration (UF), and micro filtration (MF), as well as dead-end UF/MF filtration. The smaller markets relating to ion-exchange membranes and membrane contactors also will be evaluated.
The market for membrane applications in process water and process fluids, wastewater treatment and water reuse, product recovery, and cleaner recycling will be considered. Membrane gas separations as needed in food and beverage manufacture will not be covered.
