World demand to rise nearly 9% annually through 2017
Worldwide demand for geosynthetics is expected to rise nearly nine percent per year to 5.3 billion square meters in 2017. Advances will benefit from improved spending on the construction of structures and roads. Additional growth will be driven by increased market penetration, stimulated by growing concerns regarding environmental protection and greater awareness of the performance advantages of these products in a variety of applications. Concerns about the leaching of hazardous material into soil and groundwater at landfill, mining, and oil and gas sites, as well as interest in limiting erosion and reducing roadway maintenance, will also promote geosynthetics use throughout the world.

Construction to be fastest growing market
The construction market accounted for approximately one-third of worldwide geosynthetics sales in 2012. In addition to being the largest, this market is projected to register the fastest gains through 2017. Growth was aided by continued expansion in building construction activity worldwide and improved spending in developed areas as the global recession of 2009 and subsequent slow recovery limited the market in the 2007-2012 period. Use of geosynthetics will rise as a means of preventing sedimentary runoff from construction sites, as well as reducing the need for other erosion controls in a growing list of countries.
The transportation infrastructure market will provide opportunities for a number of geosynthetics, benefiting from the maintenance of the existing extensive roadway networks in developed countries. Rising market penetration and the ongoing extension of paved roads and railways will boost sales in developing countries. Gains in the landfill market will benefit from a growing number of countries adopting modern landfill design and operations that typically incorporate geosynthetic liners and caps.
China to claim about half of all new global demand
Market advances in the large Asia/Pacific region will be propelled by the rapidly developing Chinese market, which will account for roughly three-fourths of the regional sales in 2017 and about half of additional global volume demand through 2017. China’s vast stretches of available land, its ongoing development of large scale infrastructure projects, and its need for erosion control will provide opportunities for geosynthetics going forward. Similar to China, India is also expected to post double-digit growth through 2017, although from a much smaller base. However, in many of the least developed countries, growth for geosynthetics will be more limited due to inadequate funding, a lack of regulations that require their use, and the presence of lower-cost alternatives such as natural fiber geotextiles and rock.
Key US market to provide significant opportunities
The US is the world’s largest national geosynthetics market, accounting for over a fifth of worldwide demand in 2012. The enormity of the US market reflects the immense size and advanced nature of the country’s economy. In addition to having a huge construction sector and an extensive transportation infrastructure, the US has relatively strict environmental control regulations regarding containment issues, all of which will continue to provide significant opportunities for geosynthetics through 2017.
