Global Geosynthetics with COVID-19 Market Impact Analysis

Global Geosynthetics with COVID-19 Market Impact Analysis

Global geosynthetics demand is expected to rise 4.1% annually through 2024 to 8.2 billion square meters. Demand gains will be driven by:
- growth in the use of geosynthetics in construction projects because of their performance properties and long-term cost benefits
- the implementation of more stringent regulations mandating the use of geosynthetics
- rising building construction in many parts of the world
- an increase in public infrastructure spending in the Asia/Pacific region, most notably China
- an expansion in paved road construction and upkeep on existing roads

Scope of the Report
This study analyzes global geosynthetics demand by product, market, region, and country:
- Products: Geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geonets, other geosynthetics
- Markets: Building construction, transportation infrastructure, landfills, liquid containment, mining, other markets
- North America: US, Canada, Mexico
- Central & South America: Brazil
- Western Europe: Germany, France, Italy, UK, Spain, Other Western Europe
- Eastern Europe: Russia, Poland
- Asia/Pacific: China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Other Asia/Pacific
- Africa/Mideast: Turkey

Historical data for 2009, 2014, and 2019 and forecasts for 2024 are provided for global geosynthetics demand. Estimates of geosynthetics demand were calculated using gross domestic product, building construction indicators, personal consumption expenditures, mining output, agricultural value added, as well as information from various country- and industry-specific sources.

The study also provides corporate analysis of leading geosynthetics suppliers.
