Rise in Infrastructural Development to Push Global Geotextiles Market towards Growth
“The global geotextiles market is growing significantly owing to the increase in the construction of infrastructure amenities, roadways, dams, and bridges,” says a TMR analyst. Construction activities are especially increasing in Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) countries. Another factor augmenting the market’s growth is the favorable regulatory support on the use of geotextiles in construction activities. Additionally, the various functional advantages of geotextiles over other materials, are boosting their demand globally. Moreover, increasing investments in constructional activities, rapid urbanization, and increasing population are other factors encouraging the growth of the world geotextiles market.
Fluctuating Raw Material Price to Impact Geotextiles Market Negatively
Factors challenging the growth of the global geotextiles market include less awareness among consumers and inadequate supply of raw materials. The volatility in the price of raw materials such as polypropylene and polyester is also hampering the growth of the market. In addition to this, lack of specified set of physical and mechanical standards for geotextiles across nations will pose a challenge for the market.
Landscape Restoration Projects in Developed Countries to Act as Opportunity in Market
Infrastructural developments in various developing countries in Latin America including the implementation will fuel non-woven geotextiles demand, to be used in filtration solutions, soil reinforcement, and drainage. This will create new opportunities for growth of the market.
