The global geosynthetics market is projected to reach USD XX.XX million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of X.X% between 2016 and 2021.

Market Dynamics

The market for geosynthetics is mainly driven by the large-scale government-funded capital projects and increasing applications in the construction industry. Geosynthetics are increasingly gaining prominence in the economic and environmental development of a country. Due to their durability, eco-friendly nature and cost-effective engineering solutions of structure and reduced environmental impact, maintenance and repair expenses, they are used widely across various end-use sectors. The market is estimated to grow strong due to the robust infrastructure development projects in the emerging economies and the growing use of geosynthetics in the construction sector over the forecast period. Also, the growing waste management applications, rising construction activities’ spending, and the governments’ stringent building codes and environmental regulations are expected to propel the demand for the global geosynthetics market over the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

The global geosynthetics market can be categorized by type, application and material. By type, geosynthetics are segmented into geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geofoams, geonets and others. By application, the global geosynthetics market is segmented into roads & pavements, railroads, drainage systems, containment & waste water, soil reinforcement & erosion and others. And by material, the market is segmented into polypropylene, polyethylene, polyester and others.

Geotextiles are permeable materials, and this segment is the largest in the global geosynthetics market. The market for geotextiles is witnessing a significant growth owing to the growing importance of geotextiles in the construction and infrastructure developments, globally. The growth of the geotextiles market is mainly contributed to the increasing use of automotive textiles, protective textiles, defense textiles, and other structural canopies. Geotextiles are also expected to penetrate the healthcare and medical industries.

The market has been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market, globally, which is projected to grow at a CAGR of X.X% over the forecast period. The growth in the Asia-Pacific region is estimated to be on the rise due to the government regulations mandating the use of geosynthetics in all the infrastructure development projects. With the legislation of new environmental regulations including sedimentary runoff restrictions at the construction sites, soil protection and soil erosion, the construction sector is expected to be the largest end-use market for geosynthetics.
