The global membrane bioreactor market size is projected to expand at a healthy pace in the foreseeable future owing to the urgent need to efficiently manage and treat wastewater around the globe, finds Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Membrane Bioreactor Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Hollow Fiber, Flat Sheet, Multi-tubular), By System Configuration (Submerged, External), By Application (Municipal Waste-water Treatment, Industrial Waste-water Treatment) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028”. According to UN Water, approximately 80% of the wastewater generated worldwide flows back into water bodies and ecosystems without being treated or reused. As a result, nearly 1.8 billion around the world consume water polluted with contaminants such as faeces and synthetic chemicals, which puts these people at risk of developing deadly diseases such as cholera and typhoid. Membrane bioreactors (MBR) are widely used to treat wastewater, involving microfiltration or ultrafiltration membranes that are integrated with a biological process. Thus, these materials provide an optimal solution to wastewater treatment and as countries look to improve access to clean water, the demand for MBR is likely to spike in the near future.

Wastewater Reuse Initiatives Undertaken by Large Cities to Brighten Market Prospects
Several cities around the world have initiated innovative wastewater treatment programs that are focused on reusing wasted water for different purposes. For example, Aqaba, the only coastal city in thewater-starved country of Jordan, currently treats 90% of its wastewater under its ‘Zero Discharge’ policy and has been making heavy investments in wastewater management solutions over the past many years. Similarly, in China, the capital city Beijing has been extensively utilizing membrane bioreactor technology under its Integrated Wastewater Program, which aims at building efficiencies and infrastructures for water recycling and sewage treatment. Another prominent example is the Indian city of Chennai, which has been able to meet 15% of the city’s water demand through recycled water under its ‘Zero Water Discharge in Chennai’ program. These initiatives augur well for the membrane bioreactor market growth as these materials are essential in filtering and decontaminating polluted water and making it viable for various uses.
Rapid Industrialization to Generate Numerous Opportunities in Asia Pacific
Asia Pacific is expected to present lucrative opportunities for market players owing to the speedy expansion of industries in the region.
