Global Geosynthetics Market to Reach US$ 20.4 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Increasing Product Utilization In the Construction Sector

April 12, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "­­Geosynthetics Market Report by Product (Geotextiles, Geomembranes, Geogrids, Geonets, Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL), Pre-Fabricated Vertical Drains (PVD), and Others), Type (Woven, Non-Woven, Knitted, and Others), Material (Polypropylene, Polyester, Polyethylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Synthetic Rubber, and Others), Application (Road Construction and Pavement Repair, Railroads, Drainage Systems, Soil Reinforcement and Erosion, Water and Waste Management, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global geosynthetics market size reached US$ 12.8 Billion in 2023. Geosynthetics refers to synthetic products used to improve soil conditions. They are commonly composed of natural or polymeric materials, such as geotextiles, geogrids, geonets, geocells, geomembranes, and geocomposites, that are used with soil, rock, or any other related building materials. They are planar products made of petrochemical-based polymers, including polyester, polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene, and polyethylene (PE). These substances are biologically inert and will not decompose from fungal or bacterial action. Geosynthetics are highly cost-effective, durable, versatile, and capable of enhancing the mechanical and physical properties of the soil, allowing it to withstand harsh climatic conditions. Therefore, they are widely employed as an alternative to other stabilization methods, such as excavation, dewatering, and replacement via chemical stabilization, to stabilize terrain and resolve various civil engineering issues, including drainage, filtration, reinforcement, separation, containment, barrier, and erosion control. Currently, geosynthetics are extensively used across various geotechnical and civil engineering applications, such as coastal engineering, canals, dams, reservoirs, embankments, retaining structures, railroads, airfields, and roads. 

Global Geosynthetics Market Trends:

The expanding construction sector and rising instructional activities are primarily driving the global geosynthetics market growth. It is extensively employed across civil engineering applications, such as railroads, roads, harbors, and drainage structures, as they add rigidity and strengthens the asphalt, lowering the risk of erosion and extending its lifespan. Moreover, geosynthetics are widely utilized in filtering systems since they generate polyethylene threads, which improve the filtering effectiveness and inhibit the release of dangerous particles into the atmosphere, water bodies, and soil, thus aiding in market expansion. In line with this, the rising awareness about environmental issues is prompting the need for dynamic initiatives that properly handle water and waste. This, in turn, is fuelling the demand for geomembranes and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) for managing food waste, e-waste, and medical waste, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In addition to this, escalating concerns about water contamination is propelling the adoption of geosynthetics in various flood mitigation operations and sewage treatment plants to protect water supplies, such as rivers, lakes, ponds, aquifers, and reservoirs. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of geomembranes as lining solutions in evaporation ponds, tailings management, and heap leaching across the mining industry is strengthening the market growth. Other factors, such as industrialization, rapid urbanization, rising population, and the easy availability of application-specific sizes and grades of geotextiles, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 20.4 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 5.1% during 2024-2032.
