Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2013 -- Geosynthetics Market by Types (Geotextile, Geomembrane, Geogrid, Geofoam, Geonet), Applications (Road Industry, Railroad Stabilization, Water Management, Waste Management, Mining, Soil Reinforcement, Erosion Control) & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018
Geosynthetics are defined as polymeric materials used in engineering applications such as civil construction and environmental protection projects (such as landfill). The polymer materials used for this are generally polypropylene, polyethylene, and polyester. Geosynthetic materials are available in various sizes, strengths, and textures. Based on physical characteristics and subsequent applications, they are further classified into geotextiles, geogrids, geomembranes, geonets, geofoams, geosynthetic clay liners, geopipes, etc. Though there are various types of geosynthetics available in the market, each one performs at-least one or more of the following six basic applications: separation, drainage, filtration, barrier, reinforcement, and protection.

The global market for geosynthetic materials has grown significantly during the past few years and is expected to grow at a more rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by large scale capital projects undertaken by government bodies to improve civic facilities.
Asia-Pacific emerged as the largest market of the geosynthetic materials, mostly driven by large investment in projects including building and maintaining transport infrastructure (road and railway), and waste management. China is the leading consumer of these products in the Asia-Pacific region, as it has promoted the use of geosynthetics in building large scale projects. Other Asia-Pacific countries such India, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South Korea are also investing in large scale infrastructure projects, construction projects, civil and environment-protection applications. This will boost the future growth of geosynthetic market as it is recommended as one of the best quality materials in the civil engineering projects. Demand from the developed regions, (especially U.S.) will remain healthy, on the back of rising consumption of geosynthetics in waste management.
