Key Market Trends

Increasing the Demand in Road Construction and Pavement Repair

  • Geotextiles are made from synthetic polymers, mainly including polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene, etc., which are very less likely prone to decay under biological and chemical processes.
  • This feature makes geotextiles useful in the construction and maintenance of roads. During the past decade, there had been considerable growth in the usage of geotextile in the construction industry, worldwide.
  • These materials are permeable textile structures used mainly in construction applications. The possible applications of geotextiles in the construction sector have been successfully developed. They offer high benefits in terms of economics, performance, and durability.
  • These materials are used in road, highway, earth dam, railroad, industry, stabilization of soil, control of drainage, tunnel construction, etc.
  • Thus, the above-mentioned factors are expected to drive the geotextile market over the forecast period.
Geotextile Market Segmentation Trends

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific region held the largest market share in the overall geotextile market worldwide. The market for geotextiles in the region is mainly driven by the ongoing developments in the construction industry.
  • China is expected to be the major market for geotextiles in the region. The Chinese government announced an investment of about USD 503 billion, by 2020, for the expansion of the railway system in the country. There is a plan to extend the high-speed railway coverage by 30,000 km, in the coming years.
  • Currently, there are over 400 enterprises in the country that are engaged in the production of geotextiles.
  • During the 13th Five-year Plan period, China's plans included water conservancy construction, power investment, road and railway construction, environmental engineering construction, as well as ports, airports, garbage disposal, rivers and lakes, sand control, and other projects. 
  • The aforementioned projects are expected to drive the market for geotextiles in the country.
  • In India, some of the projects, like Sagarmala Project, Bharatmala Project, Setu Bharatam Project, Rashtriya Rajmarg Zila Sanjoyokta Pariyojna, and Inland Waterways, are anticipated to increase the demand for geotextiles in the country, over the forecast period.
  • Therefore, the aforementioned factors may contribute toward the growth in the demand for geotextiles in the Asia-Pacific region, during the forecast period.
