Geomembrane Market Overview:
Global Geomembrane Market was valued at $2,048 million in 2015 and is expected to garner $3,537 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2016 - 2022. Geomembranes, the most significant group within geosynthetics, are made up of flexible polymeric materials that are impermeable in nature, thus creating a barrier to the movement of water, fluids, and other soluble materials.
These membranes possess significant mechanical properties such as tensile strength & elongation, tear resistance, impact resistance, and interface shear strength. They are widely used for solid waste containment, mining, and water containment applications. Currently, use of geomembranes has increased owing to the increase in environmental pollution and formulation of environmental policies by regulatory agencies. Moreover, the market is driven by implementation of several regulations for waste management and increase in utility of geomembranes. However, volatile raw material prices may hamper the growth of this market.
The report mainly emphasizes on the different types of raw materials used to manufacture geomembranes, which include high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), and others. It also analyzes the technologies used to manufacture geomembranes, including extrusion, calendaring, and others. Applications of geomembranes studied in this analysis include water management, waste management, mining, tunnel liners & civil engineering, and others. Geographically, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
