This study analyzes the global market for geosynthetics, including:

  • geotextiles
  • geomembranes
  • geogrids
  • geonets
  • others product, such as geocells, geofoams, geosynthetic clay liners, preformed geocomposites, erosion control blankets, fabric formed revetments, and turbidity curtains

Unless stated otherwise, “geotextiles” refers only to synthetic geotextiles, as natural fiber geotextiles are not included in the scope of this study. Plastic geopipes also are excluded.

Markets include:

  • transportation infrastructure (including paved – both asphalt and concrete – and unpaved roads, bridges, railways, and airport runways
  • building construction:
    • residential buildings (single-family, multifamily, manufactured homes)
    • nonresidential buildings (including offices, retail, and wholesale, lodging, education, healthcare, religious, industrial, and transportation buildings)
  • landfills (solid waste management)
  • liquid containment (including potable water reservoirs; decorative ponds; irrigation channels; canals; and industrial, municipal, and agricultural waste ponds)
  • mining
  • other markets (including agriculture, coal combustion product containment, and oil and gas sites)

Historical data for 2009, 2014, and 2019 and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 are provided for demand in million square meters.
