We need your help – just for a minute!

To mark the beginning of a new year (and decade), we thought it would be interesting to conduct a small forward osmosis market study among the readers of ForwardOsmosisTech. The results of the survey will be published here within the next few weeks. Filling out the survey below will take less than 2 minutes (promise!) and – if all goes well – provide everyone with a better understanding of where the forward osmosis market is heading over the next two years. Thanks in advance!

Preliminary results – summary of survey design

With 50+ respondents to date, it’s time to share the preliminary results of ForwardOsmosisTech’s FO market study.

We asked ForwardOsmosisTech’s readers: “What are your forward osmosis market development over the next 2-year period (until ultimo 2021)?”.

For each of the five chosen industrial segments, respondents were asked to provide a score according to the following ranking guide:

  • (0 out of 100): By ultimo 2021, the use of forward osmosis technologies in the given industrial segment falls within basic research.
  • (25 out of 100): By ultimo 2021, the use of forward osmosis technologies in the given industrial segment falls within lab-scale piloting.
  • (50 out of 100): By ultimo 2021, the use of forward osmosis technologies in the given industrial segment falls within industrial piloting.
  • (75 out of 100): By ultimo 2021, the use of forward osmosis technologies in the given industrial segment falls within first industrial-scale commercial installation.
  • (100 out of 100): By ultimo 2021, the use of forward osmosis technologies in the given industrial segment falls within widespread commercialization.

In addition, we asked respondents to estimate the combined global forward osmosis market size by ultimo 2021.

The actual results

  1. Global FO market size expectations ultimo 2021: 50.6 ± 28.2 million U.S. dollars
  2. 4 out of 5 industrial segments will move into industrial piloting by ultimo 2021.
  3. The Pharmaceuticals & Ingredients segment will move into lab-scale piloting by ultimo 2021.
  4. The Desalination segment will transition furthest towards the 1st commercial installation.
