Gabion baskets are gaining increased popularity in the global market. Gabion baskets at construction sites are filled with rocks which makes it more adaptable, and water permeable. These baskets are also used to maintain the integrity of any structure. It is mostly utilized for channel lining, and holding wall.
Gabion baskets can be stacked in various sizes and shapes, which makes these baskets different from loose riprap. These baskets are also resistant to being washed away by moving water. One of the major factors driving the growth of the gabion basket market is the ability of these baskets to develop and integrate with the surrounding environment, and restoration of the natural environment. Further, gabion baskets help to reduce the velocity of running water. Handling and transporting the materials is quite simple, which helps to reduce the time taken to build the gabion baskets. Moreover, gabion baskets can also be designed to facilitate re-vegetation. These gabion structures are smart and flexible and many modern buildings and infrastructure designed or updated today are making use of gabion baskets in order to renew their look and meet the demands of sustainability. Also, gabion baskets are perfectly scalable as they can be used not only for massive structures but also for small-scale construction. These factors are significantly contributing to the growth of the gabion basket market.
However, the aesthetic impression of gabion baskets are minimal and high velocity water can damage these baskets through the impact of a large or heavy object. Although gabion baskets offer an economic choice for most applications, they are rather expensive to install. Gabion baskets require heavy equipment to construct, as mechanical lifting is necessary to set heavy wall sections in place. These factors are restraining the growth of the global gabion basket market.
The global gabion basket market can be segmented based on product type, application, and geography. Based on product type, the gabion basket market can be categorized into Galvanized Large-size Wire Hexagonal Mesh, Galvanized Plastic-coated Hexagonal Mesh, Zn-5% Al-mixed Rare Earth Alloy Plating, and Zn-10% Al-mixed Rare Earth Alloy Plating. Galvanized Large-size Wire Hexagonal Mesh accounts for major share in the global market. In terms of application, the gabion basket market can be divided into civil engineering, road building, military applications, and landscaping. In civil engineering, gabion baskets are commonly used to stabilize slopes and shorelines against erosion. Other advantages of using gabion baskets in civil engineering include maintenance of small permanent or temporary dams, channel lining, to filter silt from runoff, and river training. Gabion baskets are commonly used as fish barriers on small streams or water bodies. In military applications, gabion baskets are often used to protect operating bases against explosive, indirect fires such as mortar or artillery fire. Based on geography, the gabion basket market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific dominates the global gabion basket market, due to the rapid growth in infrastructure development and rise in urbanization in this region. Rise in population in various APAC countries such as China and India is expected to bolster the growth of the construction market which in turn will drive the growth of the gabion basket market.
The gabion basket market is fragmented in nature. It is set to welcome new entrants because of continuous developments in the construction industry globally along with growing consumer preferences. The market is expected to witness huge expansion by both regional and international players.
