Wellesley, Mass., June 5, 2015 – The U.S. is the world’s largest market for geosynthetics, consuming nearly $2.4 billion in 2014. BCC Research expects this figure to increase to almost $2.8 billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.6%. This new report covers the U.S. market for all types of geosynthetics between 2014 and 2020, including geotextiles, geogrids and geonets, geomembranes, geocomposites, and other types (e.g., geocells, geofoams, geo-others).
Sales of geomembranes, the largest market segment in product terms, were $929 million in 2014. Growing at a CAGR of 2.4% over the next five years, these sales should reach nearly $1.1 billion by 2020. Meanwhile, geotextiles, the second-largest product segment at $827 million in 2014, are predicted to reach $965 million by 2020. Sales of other types of geosynthetics (geocomposites, geogrids/geonets, geocells, geofoams/geocombs, and geopipes) totaled $619.3 million in 2014, a figure that should reach $733.4 million by 2020.
“In the U.S., geosynthetics are the object of increased interest as a tool in the rebuilding and expansion of infrastructures,” says BCC Research analyst Andrew McWilliams. “Geosynthetics are especially useful in an environment of growing land scarcity, increased awareness of seismic hazards, and more stringent environmental regulations.”
Geosynthetics: Materials, Applications and Markets(AVM064B) is intended especially for executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers with a need to know where the market for geosynthetic materials is headed in the next five years. The report’s findings and conclusions should also be of interest to readers in government and private companies that operate public infrastructure, as well as the engineering and construction community.
