The global geomembrane market was valued at $2,048 million in 2015, and is projected to reach $3,537 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2016 to 2022. Geomembranes, the most significant group within geosynthetics, are manufactured using flexible polymeric materials that are impermeable in nature, which creates a barrier to the movement of water and fluids. These membranes are also called as synthetic liners, polymeric membranes, or flexible membrane liners. They prevent the dispersal of contaminants and are used to create a composite lining system that provides added security, owing to their ability to block fluids. These membranes have a wide range of applications, such as solid waste containment, mining, waste water containment, mining, landfills, and civil engineering, owing to their remarkable mechanical properties such as tear resistance, impact resistance, puncture resistance, tensile strength & elongation, and interface shear strength.
In 2015, North America and Asia-Pacific led the market, in terms of both value and volume, owing to the regulatory framework concerning waste management, presence of well-established mining industries, and rapid industrialization. Advancement in water management technologies has led to a significant expansion in range of products & applications of geomembranes in the past few years. The market is driven by increase in regulations for the implementation of waste management and rise in utility of geomembranes in several applications; however, volatile raw material prices may hamper the market growth.
The geomembrane market is segmented based on raw material type, technology, application, and geography. On the basis of raw material type, the market is divided into-high density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), and others. On the basis of technology, it is categorized into extrusion, calendaring, and others. Furthermore, based on application, it is categorized into water management, waste management, mining, tunnel liners & civil engineering, and others. On the basis of geography, it is classified into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
On June 10, 2015, Solmax International launched a hot liquid rated series of geomembranes, which utilize a special resin and additive package to improve the hydrostatic strength and long-term durability in a typical service temperature application. These geomembranes perform well even at a temperature as high as 100°C for an extended period of time.

Ceramic tile is one of the most prevalent flooring choices used in building & construction industry globally. These are made using raw materials such as feldspar, bentonite, kaolin, sand, and glass. These offer reduction in household allergens, are environment friendly, easy to clean, very low maintenance, cost-effective, and are resistant to scratch, moisture, and dust.
The global ceramic tiles market is driven by growth in construction sector worldwide. In addition, increase in use of ceramic tiles as a substitute to other products in residential applications, such as marble, paints, and glass, is expected to fuel the demand for ceramic tiles in the near future. However, stringent regulations pertaining to emissions of exhaust gases during the production of these tiles is expected to restrain market growth. Thus, introduction of environment-friendly production processes is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market players.
Vitrified ceramic tile held more than half of the total market share in 2015, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to the rapid expansion of the construction industry worldwide. In addition, the introduction of new production processes and new product features is expected to boost growth of this segment.
New residential and residential replacement applications dominated the global market, with nearly two-thirds share, in terms of volume, in 2015. Increase in demand for moisture- and dust-resistant properties across residential and commercial applications is anticipated to drive the market growth.
Key findings to the Ceramic Tiles Market:
In terms of value, vitrified tile segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is projected to maintain its lead position throughout 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9.0%, in terms of value.
Residential replacement approximately occupied more than one-third of the global market in 2015.
China occupied more than one-fourth of the Asia-Pacific ceramic tiles market in 2015, and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 11.0%, in terms of value.
In 2015, Asia-Pacific and North America collectively accounted for two-thirds of the ceramic tiles market, and are expected to continue this trend during the analysis period. The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, owing to increase in construction sector in China, India, and other developing economies and rise in housing sector.
