Market Analysis & Forecasts
South Asia geosynthetics market is poised to grow at CAGR of 12.2 % by 2033
Heightened Investments in Infrastructural Projects to Fuel the Adoption of Geosynthetics in South Asia: South Asia Geosynthetics Market to Touch US$ 4,982.8 million by 2033.
Geosynthetics are in high demand owing to accelerating projects for water containment and canaling in South Asia. Furthermore, developments of rail networks and road is also surging, thus generating the demand for geosynthetics. Geosynthetics are installed to absorb overlay stress, base reinforcement, subgrade stabilization, drainage facility, and filtration. With the help of geosynthetics, rail networks observe better stability and improved stress propagation.
Governments are also vigorously promoting the development of water containment projects owing to the constant demand for water the world over. Government bodies and private entities can also be seen significantly investing in infrastructural projects like airports, railways, roads, and ports. For this purpose, geosynthetics are being utilized due to their cost-effectiveness when it comes to pavement reinforcement, soil stabilization, and erosion control.
Growing environmental concerns and regulations have led to the adoption of sustainable construction practices. Geosynthetics offers solutions for environmental protection, waste management, and erosion control in line with the region’s sustainability goals.
The adoption of geosynthetics might be hampered due to the dearth of skilled labor for the utilization of geosynthetic materials in infrastructural projects. Additionally, oscillating prices of raw materials utilized in geosynthetic materials are also expected to restrict the acceptance of geosynthetic materials.
