Geomembrane Market by Raw Material (HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PP, EPDM, Others), by Manufacturing Method (Extrusion, Calendering, and Others), by Application (Waste Management, Water Management, Mining, Tunnel Liners, and Others), by Region (NA, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW) - Global Forecast to 2020
“Stringent regulatory framework for waste and water management expected to drive the market”
The geomembranes market is projected to witness a CAGR of 10.9% between 2015 and 2020 to reach a market size of USD 3.26 billion by 2020. The growth of the market is attributed to stringent environmental regulation on water and waste management and also the growing applicability of geomembranes in roadways construction, oil & gas industry, canal linings, and others.
“Extrusion projected to be dominant manufacturing method for geomembranes during the forecast period”
Extrusion is the most-widely used method for manufacturing of geomembranes. It is widely used for the fabrication of HDPE geomembranes. Extrusion is a cost effective process and is adopted to manufacture geomembranes with raw material such as chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low density polyethylene, and polypropylene PP.
“High density polyethylene projected to dominate the market during forecast period among other raw materials”
Large number of waste and water management projects use HDPE geomembranes. HDPE geomembranes can be manufactured in varied thickness for diverse applications. The favorable properties of HDPE coupled with easy availability and relatively low cost of the material make HDPE geomembranes cost-effective for applications in large projects. On the other hand, PVC, polypropylene, butyl rubber, and ethylene interpolymer alloy (EIA) geomembranes are projected to witness the highest CAGRs in the market during the forecast period.
