Geotextile technology uses polymer for the construction of drains, roads, harbors etc. Geotextile is the emerging segment of the geosynthetic market. Geosynthetic market is expected to reach 5.2 billion square meters by 2017. Increasing use of the geotextile in Asia Pacific region, especially in china, is a significant factor influencing the healthy growth rate of geotextile industry. Increasing demand for geotextile based roadway construction in BRIC and other developing countries is driving the demand for the technology in the coming years. By understanding the benefits of the geotexitle in construction, favorable regulations and policies of the geotextile market, the companies are investing in the R&D. These factors are responsible for the global demand of geotextile.
Use of the geotextile in construction work improves the irrigation water quality and eliminates ground water contamination. Over conventional technologies, Geotextile is a cost effective solution to strengthen the soil. Lack of raw materials and limited awareness about geotextile are two factors limiting the growth of the industry.
