The global geosynthetics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.49% during the period 2016-2020.

Geosynthetics serve as cost-effective alternatives in civil and coastal engineering, construction industries, and environmental applications. It has applications in road construction, railway stabilization, water management, waste management, mining, soil reinforcement, and erosion control.

As the global geosynthetics market is highly competitive, manufacturers are creating innovative geosynthetic products and are involved in exploring potential markets to enhance their market share. Considerable research is also being undertaken to use recycled raw materials in the manufacturing process of geosynthetics. For instance, Cellweb Tree Root Protection System offers a flexible and porous solution for shielding tree roots while producing a tough and stable stage when building vehicular access tracks.

According to the report, rise in demand for roadway and railway infrastructure is one of the major drivers in the market. A majority of the infrastructure spending is toward the construction of roadways and railways. The use of geosynthetics reduces the costs associated with engineering construction and prolongs the life of the roadways and railways.

Further, the report states that lack of relevant product standards in the emerging markets poses a major challenge for the global geosynthetics market, restricting the development of the geosynthetics industry in such regions.
