PORTLAND, Oregon and PUNE, India, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
According to a new report published by Allied Market Research titled, "Geomembrane Market by Raw Material, Technology, and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022," the global geomembrane market was valued at $2,048 million in 2015, and is estimated to reach $3,537 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2016 to 2022. In 2015, extrusion technology segment held almost half of the total market share.
Summary of the Report Geomembrane Market can be accessed on the website at:
Geomembranes create a barrier to movement of water, fluids, and other soluble materials, and are specifically manufactured using synthetic polymers that are impermeable in nature. These membranes have proven to be far more effective in regards to impermeability than traditional products such as concrete, asphalt, and compacted clay. They possess significant characteristics such as superior elongation, flexibility, tear & impact resistance, and water containment quality. Owing to these properties, these membranes are widely used in solid waste containment, potable water storage, mining, and water containment.
According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead, Chemicals & Materials at Allied Market Research, "Growth in industrial sector coupled with increase in awareness about waste management are prime drivers of the global geomembrane market."
The growth of the global geomembrane market is driven by rise in application of these membranes, owing to the development in water management technologies, and the favorable regulatory policies about waste management. This evolution in waste and water management technologies is further expected to provide lucrative growth opportunity to the market players in the near future. However, volatile raw material prices are anticipated to hamper the market growth.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is the leading raw material segment, owing to its enhanced elasticity and flexibility, ease in installation, and cost and operational advantage. The extrusion technology segment generated the highest revenue in 2015, with almost half of the total market share, followed by the calendaring segment. Geomembranes with desired thickness can be developed using the extrusion manufacturing process.
The mining application segment dominated the global market, with one-third share in 2015. In this industry, these membranes are used in drainage system, barren & processing ponds, surplus groundwater storage lagoons, caps & interlift covers, and tailings storage.
