Worldwide demand to grow 6.1% annually through 2019

Worldwide demand for geosynthetics is expected to increase 6.1 percent per year through 2019 to 6.5 billion square meters. An acceleration of nonbuilding construction activity will fuel gains for geosynthetics. Further advances will arise from growing concerns regarding environmental protection and greater awareness of the performance advantages of geosynthetics in a wide variety of applications, allowing geosynthetics to gain market share at the expense of other geotechnical solutions, including organic erosion con­­­­­­­trol blankets, aggregate, and compacted soil. Additionally, the implementation of more stringent regulatory standards for environmental stewardship, waste management, and construction codes will provide opportunities for geosynthetics.

Tranportation infrastructure market to post fastest gains

The transportation infrastructure market is expected to register the fastest gains through 2019, aided by the ongoing expansion of road and railway networks around the world and the increasing use of geosynthetics in these projects. In developing countries, geosynthetics will be specified more frequently. In highincome countries, road construction projects have long used geosynthetics for filtration. Over the next decade, geosynthetics’ use will expand to provide erosion control, roadside drainage, and soil stabilization underneath retaining walls. In non-transportation construction projects, sustained gains in both building and nonbuilding construction activity will drive demand for geosynthetics, as they can reduce long term maintenance costs and increase the lifespan of structures.

Demand in China to bolster Asia/Pacific regional growth

The Asia/Pacific region accounted for half of world demand in 2014. The region is expected to register the fastest growth through the forecast period, primarily stimulated by China, where geosynthetics demand is expected to double. China is expected to account for 60 percent of additional global demand generated between 2014 and 2019, primarily based on its ongoing development of large-scale infrastructure projects and the need for Copyright 2015 The Freedonia Group, Inc. NEW Forecasts for 2019 & 2024 in 30 countries Worldwide Geosynthetic Demand, 2014 (4.8 billion m²) erosion control. Geosynthetics sales in India are projected to grow at a doubledigit pace through 2019 due to the Indian government’s continued investment in the country’s public infrastructure.

Construction sector to drive North America market gains

In 2014, North America was the second largest regional geosynthetics market, accounting for 22 percent of global sales. The US is one of the world’s largest markets, with 18 percent of global demand in 2014. The position of the US market reflects the immense size and advanced nature of the country’s economy. Through 2019, growth in North America will benefit from the expected acceleration of growth in its construction sector. Additional support for growth will come from environmental regulations that focus on preventing harmful materials that contaminate groundwater supplies.
