Opportunity: Rising demand from the mining and oil & gas industries

The mining industry is one of the major consumers of geosynthetics. The demand for metals and minerals from Asia is expected to drive the mining industry. China is a leading producer of rare-earth metals, gold, copper, coal, limestone, and iron & steel, while India has witnessed significant investments in the iron & steel industry. Moreover, South America has become a preferred destination for investments in mining by major global mining companies. Key countries such as Brazil, Peru, and Chile have large mining capacities and witnessed increased investments from foreign companies over the past five years. The increasing adoption of advanced extraction processes in mining activities is expected to drive the geosynthetics market during the forecast period.

Based on type, geotextiles is estimated to be the largest market in the overall geosynthetics market in 2021.

Geotextiles are permeable, durable, and engineered fabrics made from fibers. These are non-biodegradable materials hence are used in engineering projects. Geotextiles are used in geotechnical engineering applications such as heavy construction, buildings, pavement construction, hydrogeology, and environmental engineering. They are also used for drainage and erosion control, pavement and repairs, soil reinforcements & stabilization, embankments, asphalt overlays, and others.
