Product Insights

Nonwoven geotextiles led the market and accounted for about 65% share of the revenue in 2021. The segment dominated the market on account of their high adoption in a wide range of applications such as construction, furniture, hygiene products, automobiles, medical products, agriculture, and packaging.

Nonwoven geotextiles are witnessing a significant demand for transport infrastructure projects on account of their high tensile strength and low cost. Furthermore, infrastructural developments in Asia Pacific economies such as China and India are expected to drive the demand for nonwoven geotextiles in the region over the forecast period.

Woven geotextiles are anticipated to witness a CAGR of over 6.2% from 2022 to 2030 in terms of revenue. Increasing product penetration in erosion prevention applications owing to their favorable characteristics such as excellent filtration and high tensile strength is expected to fuel their demand over the forecast period.

Woven geotextiles are widely used in the construction of roads for soil separation to ensure the functioning of each soil layer individually by preventing dissimilar soil mixtures. These products are woven from high-modulus, durable polypropylene yarns into strong and dimensionally stable geotextiles.

Material Insights

Polypropylene geotextiles led the market and accounted for 57% share in 2021, as these geotextiles have excellent resistance against chemicals and inorganic salts. The rising demand for polypropylene from emerging economies in the Asia Pacific, primarily China, is anticipated to impact the raw material price trends over the forecast period.

Geotextiles made from materials such as polypropylene and polyester offer excellent water flow rates and are mainly used for the filtration of soil fines, wrapping of perforated pipes, and erosion protection. Geotextiles offer several performance advantages such as better longevity and cost savings over traditional building materials such as layers of soil, rock aggregates, and concrete.

The high heat resistance offered by polyethylene fibers is likely to fuel their demand for polyethylene-based geotextiles in construction industry in areas with high heat applications. The demand for high-density polyethylene (HDPE) in a wide range of industrial applications is expected to its availability as fiber for the textile industry, thereby impacting industry trends.

Application Insights

Road construction led the market and accounted for 47% in 2021. As construction activities are increasing especially in Asia Pacific region, owing to rise in construction activities in China and India. The National Green Highway mission in India is expected to drive the demand for geotextiles in the country owing the product’s properties of soil retention.

Non-woven geotextiles are increasingly being employed in the construction of roads, and drainages, and for the prevention of erosion on account of their function to provide an avenue for water flow. Furthermore, increasing product demand for infrastructure developments including roadways, railways, and bridges is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Geotextiles help prevent soil erosion as they are used for reinforcing soil. The product helps hold soil particles together and promote vegetation growth, which reduces erosion in the long run. In addition, clogging due to the washing away of soil is one of the major problems in drainage systems. The use of geotextiles in drainage systems helps create a channel for the consistent flow of water.

Drainage geotextiles are mainly used in the developed regions of Europe and North America to improve the efficiency of drainage systems and increase their life span. Infrastructural development in the developing countries includes the developments of drainage systems. Thus, the demand for geotextiles is witnessing significant growth in these countries.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for about of 54% share of the revenue share in 2021. The increased foreign investments in the emerging economies of the region including China and India are anticipated to have a positive impact on the economic growth.Furthermore, the rising megacities in China and India is expected to drive the demand for geotextiles.

The presence of numerous riverbeds and other water bodies in Europe has resulted in soil erosion and encroachment of water into landmasses. Some of these water bodies pass through large cities and erosion of shorelines of these rivers impacts the overall infrastructural integrity around the area. Therefore, to protect landmasses, knitted geotextiles are used to prevent corrosion.

In the Middle East and Africa, geotextiles are widely used in road construction to increase tensile strength in the earth's mass, which aids in improved water permeability of constructed infrastructures. Increasing product demand for improving groundwater levels and reducing the risk of road damage is expected to drive market growth.

Increasing foreign investments in the industrial sector of Asian economies such as China, India, Thailand, and Indonesia are expected to impact the market positively. Furthermore, increasing megacities in China and India, coupled with robust infrastructure development, are expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period.
