"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
Brine is produced from numerous industries and in various sectors. Also, the increase in demand for energy in recent years has led to an increase in exploration activities and as a result, a higher quantity of brine is produced. This produced brine needs to be stored, treated, transported and discharged properly. The unprocessed brine if discharged in the environment will lead to damaging chemical and physical properties of soil which further hampers vegetation and this certainly will affect humans.
Also, the marine ecosystem balance is disturbed after the unprocessed brine is let into water bodies. Therefore, the treatment of brine is very much essential. In the US Environment Protection Agency imposes a penalty on discharge for improper discharge of industrial wastewater. Governments of several countries are also funding and supporting the development and adoption of the latest technology in brine concentration technology.

On the basis of technology used for brine treatment, global brine concentration technology market segmented into high energy reverse osmosis (HERO), closed-circuit desalination (CCD), vertical tube falling film (VTFF), mechanical vapor compression (MVC), and others. The vertical tube falling film is the most applied and most useful amongst the given techniques as it helps in achieving thermal zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It also offers the advantage of low power consumption.
On the basis of its applications, global brine concentration technology market can be segmented into coal to chemical, food and beverage, landfill, mining, oil and gas, power, pulp and paper, steel and textile and others. The increasing demand for energy and the growing activities in the industry have seen brine technology being most used in this sector. Also, the water produced from oil fields can be a source of freshwater for water-stressed oil-producing countries.
The key market driver for the global brine concentration technology market is the increasing concerns over brine treatment. Governments of various countries have made treatment of brine mandatory before releasing them in the environment. Also, the increasing demand for energy which will increase mining and refining activities will act as a market driver for the global brine concentration technology market.
The Key market restraint for the global brine concentration technology market is the high cost associated with the installation of a brine treatment plant. Small industries which have small capital investment avoid the installation of brine technology to cut their capital cost. This, in turn, acts as a market restraint for the global brine concentration technology market.
Key players operating in the global brine concentration technology market are Duraflow, Advent Envirocare Technology, Synder Filtration, Modern Water, Saltworks, Memsys Water Technologies, Osmo Membrane Systems, Enviro Water Minerals, Oasys Water, Fluid Technology, TETRA Technologies, Veolia, IDE Technologies, Waterworld, and Saltworks Technologies.

The global brine concentration technology market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. With the increase in ongoing and planned exploration activities owing to the increasing energy demands, Asia Pacific region dominates and holds a good potential for the global brine concentration technology market in coming time. The dominating countries in the Asia Pacific region are China and India. The growing awareness about the environment is set to drive the global brine concentration technology market in Europe and North America. After the surge witnessed by the oil and gas industry after 2015, the exploration activities have been on a rise at both offshore and onshore locations in the Middle East and Latin America region. This is the potential opportunity for global brine concentration technology market to see growth in these regions.
