Ceramic Membrane Market is projected to reach USD 8.97 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 9.8% du
Ceramic membranes are man-made membranes consisting of inorganic materials such as alumina, zirconium oxide, silicon carbide, titania, and certain glassy materials used to separate aggressive acids and strong solvents. Ceramic membranes have excellent thermal stability and can, therefore, be used in activities with high-temperature membranes. It is possible to classify the ceramic membrane into a dense membrane or porous membrane. The dense ceramic membrane is used for gas separation applications such as removal of hydrogen gas from the mixture or air removal of oxygen gas. In micro or nano-filtration procedures, the porous ceramic membrane made of crystalline and amorphous solids is used. The amount of applications in the ceramic market is steadily growing and it is quickly replacing polymer membrane due to characteristics such as high mechanical strength, high chemical compatibility, high flux, long operating life, and possibly reduced life-cycle costs. Some disadvantages of ceramic membrane compared to polymer membrane are elevated initial cost and heavyweight, which is mostly offset by the ceramic membrane's long service life. Ceramic membrane's significant working parameters are porosity, crystalline nature, and its capacity to recharge once the saturation threshold has been reached.
