World Geosynthetics

As Quoted In Geosynthetics Magazine

Gains will result from a rebound in nonbuilding construction, increased concerns about environmental protection and greater awareness of the advantages of geosynthetics.

World demand to rise 8.9% annually through 2017

Global demand for geosynthetics is expected to rise 8.9 percent per year to 5.2 billion square meters in 2017. Gains will result from a much improved environment for the construction of structures and roads. Additional growth will be driven by increased market penetration, stimulated by growing concerns regarding environmental protection and greater awareness of the performance advantages of these products in a variety of applications. For example, the implementation of proposed federal rules on coal ash disposal in the US has the potential to create rapid gains for geosynthetics to line and cap coal ash containment sites. Concerns about the leaching of hazardous material into soil and groundwater at mining and oil and gas sites, as well as interest in limiting erosion and reducing roadway maintenance, will also promote geosynthetics use throughout the world.

Asia/Pacific region to remain fastest growing market

In 2012, the Asia/Pacific region surpassed North America to become the largest regional market for geosynthetics, with 35 percent of the global total. Advances in the region will be propelled by the rapidly developing Chinese market, which will account for roughly three-quarters of the regional sales in 2017 and over half of additional global volume demand through 2017. China’s vast stretches of available land, its ongoing development of large-scale infrastructure projects, and its need for erosion control will provide opportunities for geosynthetics going forward. India is also expected to post double-digit annual growth through 2017, although from a much smaller base. In many of the least developed countries, however, growth for geosynthetics will be more limited due to inadequate government funding, a lack of regulations that require their use, and the presence of lower-cost alternatives such as natural fiber geotextiles and aggregates.

In 2012, North America was the second largest regional geosynthetics market, accounting for 28 percent of global sales. The US is the world’s largest national market, alone accounting for 23 percent of global demand in 2012. The position of the US market reflects the immense size and advanced nature of the country’s economy. In addition to its a huge construction sector and extensive transportation infrastructure, the US has relatively strict environmental control regulations regarding containment of waste and chemicals; all of these will continue to provide significant opportunities for geosynthetics through 2017.

The construction market accounted for approximately one-third of global geosynthetics sales in 2012. In addition to being the largest, this market is projected to register the fastest gains overall through 2017.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 3.4 billion square meter world geosynthetics industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by type (e.g., geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geonets), market (e.g., construction, transportation infrastructure, landfills, liquid containment), world region, and for 19 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry players, including GSE Holding, Royal Ten Cate and NAUE.
