Geosynthetics Market by Types, Applications & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018



DUBLIN, Apr. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Geosynthetics Market by Types, Applications & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.


Geosynthetics are widely used in civil engineering, construction industries, environmental applications, and coastal engineering. They have applications in the road industry, railroad stabilization, water management, waste management, mining, soil reinforcement, and erosion control.

Asia-Pacific dominated this global market in 2012. Emerging markets including China, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia, and others are likely to fuel the future growth of geosynthetics. The global demand for these materials is increasing on the back of growing investment by the developed and developing economies in their civic facilities. In addition, geosynthetic applications in the mining, and oil & gas industry are increasing, which will further boost consumption of these products.

Geosynthetic consumption growth rate in developed regions was affected in the last few years due to a global economic slowdown. However, during the same period, their consumption in the developing region and especially China remained strong. Thus, overall consumption of geosynthetic products on global level remained healthy.

Though this global market is highly fragmented, major players are located in the developed countries. Demand from the emerging markets is likely to remain robust in the coming five years, due to rising awareness about the benefits of geosynthetics. Major players have prominent presence in the developing countries.

This report analyzes the global geosynthetic market along with detailed segmentation on the basis of its major types, along with its forecast till 2018. This report discusses in detail, major supply and demand factors affecting this market on the global, regional, and country level.

The dominant producers of geosynthetics are FiberWeb PLC (U.K.), Low & Bonar PLC (U.K.), Propex Global (U.S.), GSE Environmental (U.S.), and Agru America (U.S.).
