Geomembrane is a low permeable membrane liner that finds high usage in geotechnical engineering applications. These sheet barriers are used for controlling passage of fluid in a man-made system or structure. Geomembranes are highly customizable for every application owing to which they now find wide usage across several industry verticals. Growing adoption of geomembranes in mining sites, road construction, landfills and leach pads is anticipated to augment the demand for geomembranes over the forecast period. Furthermore, current boom in specialty applications such as erosion protection, tunnel waterproofing, tank interior linings and many other such applications are projected to further escalate the market growth over the projected period.
The global geomembrane market is categorized on the basis of raw materials, technologies and applications. By raw material, HDPE geomembranes dominated the market demand with >31% of market share in 2018. HDPE geomembranes are highly suitable for mining and industrial applications owing to which the product will continue to experience high demand over the forecast period. EPDM segment is slated to show fastest growth in the raw materials segment owing to its suitable structural properties due to which it is increasingly adopted for lining and waterproofing applications. Among the considered technologies, extrusion technology is most deployed. The demand for extrusion technology is projected to grow with CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period.
By application, mining application stood as one of the most promising segments, which is also projected to grow with fastest CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period. Geomembrane land fill liners are widely used for waste containment in mining sector as landfill cap covers and landfill liner systems. Mining industry is known as one of the single largest producers of solid waste. The geomembrane lining is used for retaining chemical solution, to dissolve the minerals from ores and for refining.
By region, North America emerged as the leading region in global geomembrane market with >26% of the global market share. Advanced waste management applications, booming construction industry along with favorable government norms are some of the key factors that are driving the market growth. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is projected to witness fastest growth on account of growing offshore exploration sector and infrastructural growth in the region.
