World Geosynthetics Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0732044/World-Geosynthetics-Market.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Construction_and_Building

World demand to rise 8.3% annually through 2015

Worldwide demand for geosynthetics is projected to increase 8.3 percent annually to 4.5 billion square meters in 2015. This growth rate is an acceleration from the gains of the 2005-2010 period, reflecting in part the reduced 2010 bases of the developed countries. Advances are being driven by the increasing market penetration and large-scale construction plans in place in many developing countries.

Asia/Pacific region to surpass North America as largest market

In 2010, North America was the largest regional market, accounting for 31 percent of global sales. The US is the world’s largest individual country market, with one-quarter of total sales. Growth in North America benefits from the massive size of its construction sector, which is expected to rebound through 2015 from a low 2010 base, as well as the need to maintain its large transportation infrastructure. Gains are also aided by the region’s building codes and environmental protection regulations. The Asia/Pacific region was only slightly smaller, accounting for 30 percent of global geosynthetics sales in 2010. However, this region is projected to achieve the fastest growth rate through 2015, primarily driven by China, which is expected to account for nearly half of new global demand generated between 2010 and 2015. China’s gains are primarily due to amount of available land, its ongoing development of large-scale infrastructure projects, and the need for erosion control. India is also expected to post double-digit annual growth through the forecast period, with sales nearly doubling by 2015, albeit from a much smaller base. In many of the least developed countries, however, growth for geosynthetics will be more limited, due to lack of adequate funding, a lack of regulations that require their use, and the presence of lower-cost alternatives. Western Europe and Japan are fairly comparable to the US in terms of the level of maturity of their respective geosynthetics markets, as well as the type of regulatory environment. Both of these areas are expected to rebound from reduced 2010 bases, benefiting from improved construction activity and high level of concern for environmental protection. Gains in these areas are forecast to be the slowest among all regions through 2015, indicative of Western Europe and Japan’s relative maturity. However, the affluence of these countries allows them to use advanced geosynthetic technologies despite their larger upfront costs.

Key construction market to register fastest gains

In 2010, the construction market accounted for the largest share of geosynthetics sales with 34 percent. It will also register the fastest gains through 2015, albeit from a reduced 2010 base, as construction activity improves. This market benefits from factors such as the passage of environmental regulations, including those regarding sedimentary runoff from construction sites, as well as the increasing need for erosion control and other practices to protect against soil loss in a growing number of countries. Transportation infrastructure, the second largest market in 2010 (28 percent), is expected to post above-average gains through 2015 aided by the increasing use of geosynthetics in these projects, and the ongoing extension of paved roads and railways. The landfill market is another key area for geosynthetics as a growing number of countries adopt modern landfill designs and operations.
