However, the rise in medical activities during the pandemic witnessed an increase in demand from the healthcare sector. This was attributed to increased usage of nylon membranes for sterile filtration and waste removal of various liquids, such as drugs, vaccines, and medications. Moreover, biopharmaceuticals increasingly demanded nylon membranes for bioprocessing and pharmaceutical production. Besides, laboratory experts used remote technology to study future uses of nylon membranes, such as in virus filtration and Vaccine development.

Post-pandemic, nylon membranes witnessed an increase in demand for environmental monitoring such as for monitoring air and water pollution to detect contaminants in them. Furthermore, technological advancements in the nylon membrane sector such as the development of nano-fiber-based nylon membrane and nylon membrane with antibacterial properties is gaining momentum in the market. Moreover, developments in membrane filtration technology for wastewater treatment plants have further increased the market demand for nylon membranes. For instance, as per studies, electrospun nanofiber nylon membrane improved the water filtration process more effectively.

The restraints to this market include the expensive cost of manufacturing systems and complications with membrane faultiness.
