Global demand for geosynthetics is projected to increase 8.3 percent annually to 4.5 billion square meters in 2015. Advances will be driven by increasing use of geosynthetics and the large-scale construction plans in place in many developing countries. China will surpass the US as the world’s largest geosynthetics market by 2015.
This study analyzes the three billion square meter world geosynthetics industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by type (e.g., geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geonets) and market (e.g., construction, transportation infrastructure, landfills, liquid containment).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including Royal Ten Cate, GSE Holding, and Low & Bonar.
