Geotextiles are strong fabrics that stabilize loose soil and prevents erosion. Geotextiles are the fabrics used in association with soil to drain, separate, filter, protect and reinforce. They are majorly used in civil engineering projects such as construction of highway or dam building. They are permeable and flexible in nature. Different kinds of geotextiles are woven, non-woven and knitted. Polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene are the commercially used materials for the production of geotextiles. However, natural fibres such as jute and sisal are also used in specific applications of geotextiles. Geotextiles generally find application in road construction, erosion prevention, drainage, pavement repair, waste containment, wind mitigation and railroad stabilization.
Non-woven geotextiles are the leading product segment of the global geotextiles market followed by the knitted geotextiles. The demand of non-woven geotextiles can be attributed to their low cost, high mechanical strength and absorbing capacity. The market growth of woven textiles will however be restrained due to their high cost, limited availability and heavy weight. The demand of geotextiles for road constructions is projected to rise further during the early period of the forecasted duration. Road construction and erosion prevention are the two leading applications of geotextiles.
The investments into constructions and infrastructure by Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America are the major driving forces behind the growth of the global geotextiles market. The raw materials required for the production of geotextiles are very cheap. Also, the final product has a longer shelf life in comparison to other choices. Government bodies of multiple nations are also in favour of geotextiles as they eco-friendly and are their production is generating employment. Jute based textiles are now being promoted nowadays are their source is completely natural.
Growth Acceleration Programs like PAC in Brazil, and implementation of standards like MARV and CBR have strongly encouraged the growth of the global geotextiles market. Companies are also investing into expanding their product lines by modifying the base product. Most of the new products are targeted into rail and road reinforcement applications. Overall, the global geotextiles market is experiencing a very positive growth and this trend is expected to get even better with the progressing time of the forecasted duration.
Asia-Pacific is the global leader of the geotextiles market followed by North America & Europe. The top most players who dominate over 40% of the global geotextiles market are Royal Tencate NV, Gundle/ SLT Environmental Inc, Low & Bonar PLC and Fibertex Nonwovens A/S.
