Membrane cartridges are in the high-performance category.  This means that they are purchased more based on performance and less on price.  As a result, a few thousand people at end users, EPCs, and system supplier companies are making most of the purchase decisions.  The top three pharmaceutical companies are spending more than $130 million/yr for these cartridges.
