World demand for geosynthetics is expected to increase six percent annually through 2020, according to Freedonia analysts. The majority of demand growth will be generated by China, due to its continuing implementation of large-scale infrastructure projects. Increased global awareness of the performance advantages of geosynthetics will further bolster insulation demand.
8 Materials Discussed in Depth
There are a variety of geosynthetics products, each with performance attributes that determine in which type of environmental engineering application it is used. Geotextiles are the dominant geosynthetics product type due to their ability to be used in a wide variety of applications.
Transportation Infrastructure Market to Register Strong Growth
Growth in the transportation infrastructure market will be bolstered by the worldwide expansion of roads and railway networks, especially in China. Geosynthetics are used in this market to provide filtration, erosion control, roadside drainage, and soil stabilization.
Global Geosynthetics Industry Highly Fragmented
The majority of geosynthetics producers are small and medium sized firms with limited product lines a restrained global reach, as the costs associated with shipping geosynthetics make expansion outside of the company’s domestic region difficult. However, there are some large suppliers, including GSE Holding, Leggett & Platt, Low & Bonar, NAUE, Propex, Royal Ten Cate, and S.E.C.I.
