Global Ground Protection Mats Market 2017-2021
About Ground Protection Mats
Ground protection mats are heavy-duty mats that are used for protecting the surface or turf from damage due to foot traffic, and machinery and vehicular. These ground protection mats are highly durable and are made of high-density materials that are capable of withstanding heavy loads. The mats are not only used for the protection of ground but can also be used as temporary walkways. Ground protection mats are made of materials such as polyethylene plastics, polypropylene plastics, and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastics. In addition, eco-friendly and recyclable products such as wood and rubber are increasingly used to manufacture ground protection mats.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global ground protection mats market to grow at a CAGR of 3.55% during the period 2017-2021.

Manufacturers in the market offer a wide range of ground protection mats that are made up of eco-friendly materials such as wood, rubber, and polyethylene that are 100% recyclable. High-density polyethylene mats are eco-friendly in nature and can replace the iron trackway panel. Vendors in the market are offering ground protection mats manufactured from recycled materials. The use of recycled materials has various benefits that include cost reduction and reduced landfills with no compromise in the durability and stability of materials.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growth in the construction industry. Ground protection mats will be driven by the rise in construction activities. Ground protection mats are deployed in construction projects for ground protection and to provide better ground traction to ensure safe access to industrial premises and vehicles. These mats are usually slip resistant that provide safe access to machinery, thereby reducing the possibility of accidents due to slipping. Mats used in construction projects are portable mats that help in safeguarding the grassed surface from the movement of heavy vehicles or machinery. With the rise in construction activities, the demand for ground protection mats is likely to increase.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is deferred investments in the oil and gas industry. Deferred investments in upstream activities will pose a challenge to the market. Ground protection mats are widely deployed in the oil and gas industry, which ensures safe access to remote locations and environmentally sensitive areas. The use of these mats has replaced the use of heavy boards laid across, which expends immense manual labor, to form a firm and stable surface. These ground protection mats offer temporary access roadways to oil field projects and other applications across the industry. These mats can withstand the harshest weather conditions and provide a solid and stable surface for the movement of men and machinery, thus reducing the risk of accidents. However, the turmoil seen in the oil and gas industry will have a negative effect on the ground protection mats market.
