The still curtain market is experiencing significant growth and will grow considerably in the next few years. Silt Curtain is aquatic structure built with geotextile. They have floats on top of the water table, and a skirt that lies perpendicular to the surface of the water. They are built to monitor slit movement from aquatic environment activity and these items consist of a closed cell chamber and a skirt that sits under the water surface. Instead of waves tides or tidal flow the barrier is anchored to avoid movement.

There are several important factors to consider when designing and constructing this project. Silt curtain has been used across diverse construction and engineering projects. In addition to dredging operations, they are used around ditches and spillways, on marine construction jobs,  including pile driving, outflows, highway and bridge across lakes, and enclosing the discharge from a restricted disposal area.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis

Silt curtains are installed around civil works in or adjacent to waterways to control the migration of suspended silt and sediment into the waterway. The purpose of silt curtain is to control the migration of suspended silt and sediment and facilitate localised setting. Silt curtains ,also known as turbidity curtains, are installed mainly at the construction’s activities taking place in or near the water bodies, including dam and bridge construction. These are used to prevent the flow of slit and sediments in the waterways to prevent contamination along the sides of the shores and to prevent the loosening of the soil.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

  • Coronavirus has affected the import and export of construction materials. China is the largest exporter of construction materials globally. Negative trends in the economy of China are anticipated to reduce the global imports and export throughout the globe.
  • Demand for new construction materials has witnessed a massive negative shift since the corona outbreak in December 2019, with manufacturers and investors fearing an excessively receding economic growth.
  • Travel prohibitions around the globe have affected the trade of construction materials. Thus, the supply and demand for construction materials are almost halted throughout the globe in 2020 because the scenario was different from 2021.
  • Construction materials manufacturing companies located in China, are the major sufferers of the virus outbreak, owing to lockdown and unavailability of logistics in the region.
  • The major hindrance for the global construction materials market comes from the orders of home quarantine by respective governments, which has led to the discontinuing of the production of construction materials.
  •  Decreased consumer demand and consumption has led to reduction and slowdown of sales of construction materials all over the globe over the current economic year.
  • Therefore, the silt curtain market was negatively affected in 2020.

Major Impacting Factors

 Silt curtain market major impacting factors are the construction and oil & gas industries. This subsequently affected silt curtain market growth. Thus, the construction and oil & gas industry are expected to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period due to lack of availability of skilled and unskilled labours, and raw material prices. . The soil erosion has a detrimental effect on water, air, and soil. Since agriculture and forestry industries cannot work without soil, government in their countries are trying to counter erosion. Soil erosion can also contribute mudslides and flooding, adversely impacting buildings and roadways structural integrity.

Market Trends

  • The key factors driving the silt curtains market include the curtains’ ability to minimize clogging by avoiding mixing soil & segments in water and increase in construction activities. The increase in construction of new dams for water storage and rise in upgrading bridges and dams across the globe is further propelling the market. Furthermore, factors such as government rules regarding mandatory usage of silt curtains in construction activities near water bodies, surge in awareness about the environmental issues, increase in application of silt curtains in excavation & sediment pond management are factors contributing to the growth of the silt curtain market.
  • Turbidity or silt curtains are versatile sediment control barriers that are designed for prevention of the spread of sediment in lakes and other water bodies. Turbidity windows, silt or turbidity walls, gunderbooms, silt fence, bubble curtain, and others are used for soil erosion protection on the land.
