Geosynthetics

As Quoted In Textile Technologist

US geosynthetics demand will reach $2.1 billion in 2012 based on rebounding road and highway construction and other public works spending. High-performance products such as geomembranes, geogrids and preformed geocomposites will outpace less costly types. Value demand will grow the fastest in the transportation infrastructure market.

This study analyzes the $1.7 billion US geosynthetics industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geonets, clay liners, preformed), market (e.g., construction, transportation infrastructure, landfills, liquid containment) and US geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 41 industry players, including Gundle/SLT Environmental, Propex and CETCO.
