Introduction & Scope
INTRODUCTION
STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research report provides an in-depth analysis of the market for membrane technology across a range of filtration types and applications. Covered technologies
include reverse osmosis, forward osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, electrochemical processes, gas separation and pervaporation. Applications for these
filtration types include potable water, process water and wastewater treatment; food and beverage processing; biopharmaceuticals production; other large-scale liquid
separations; and industrial gas separation.

Technical and market drivers are considered in evaluating the current worth of the technologies covered, and in forecasting growth and trends over the next five years.
The conclusions are illustrated with statistical information on markets, applications, industry structure and dynamics, along with technological developments.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
This study is intended for individuals requiring an in-depth analysis of the membrane industry that traces significant developments and forecasts important trends,
quantifies the various market sectors and highlights companies active in those areas.

Because of the diverse and fragmented nature of the industry, it is difficult to find studies that gather such extensive data from far-reaching resources, and have this
data presented in one comprehensive document. This report contains a unique collection of membrane-related information, analyses, forecasts and conclusions that
are very hard (or impossible) to find elsewhere.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This comprehensive report aims to provide those interested in investment, acquisition, or expansion into the market for membrane technology with the specific, detailed
information crucial to making educated decisions. Senior marketing personnel, venture capitalists, executive planners, research directors, government officials and suppliers
to the industry who want to discover and exploit current or projected market niches should find this report of value. Readers who wish to understand how regulations,
market pressures and technology interact in the arena also will find this study worthwhile.

SCOPE OF REPORT
This report is primarily a study of the U.S. market, but due to the international presence of many industry participants, global activities are included where appropriate. Values are given in U.S. dollars. Forecasts are in constant U.S. dollars and growth rates are compounded. Five-year projections are provided for market activity and value. Industry structure, technological trends, pricing considerations, R&D, government regulations, company profiles and competitive technologies are included in the study. Only industrial-scale membrane products will be evaluated. No consumer products (i.e., point-of-use water systems) are included in the analysis.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
