The global geocell market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rapid urbanization along with accelerating the construction sector in various countries including India, China, and South Africa. Increasing demand for these three-dimensional honeycomb structures which are made of high-density polypropylene, polyester, polythene, and polymeric alloys is expected to positively impact the global demand mainly owing to their use in construction sector. The demand is expected to rise over the upcoming period owing to the growing concerns towards sustainable infrastructure development, soil erosion control, and improving construction standards. Geocells find their use in the construction sector primarily for erosion control, slope protection, soil stabilization, load support, earth reinforcement, channel protection, and tree root protection which is expected to be the key driver for the geocells market growth. Moreover, use of novel polymeric alloys to make geocells is expected to spur market growth pertaining to its usage for heavy-duty applications including reinforcement of railways, container yards, and highways. Furthermore, the geocells layer provides a stiff mattress which makes it more cost-effective, thereby is expected to fuel market demand. Rapid growth in the roadways is also expected to spur the demand owing to its use as a surface and a base stabilizer in unpaved and paved roads. In addition, increasing use of geocells for water conservation projects, development of lightweight and nano-fiber based geocells is anticipated to augment market growth. Rising demand for polymeric alloy & polyester-based geocells is further expected to have a positive impact on the market. However, tough competition from substitute products including geomembranes and geogrids along with low awareness amongst infrastructure developers is expected to restraint the market growth over the next seven years.
Geocells finds various applications in numerous sectors including infrastructure, construction, railways, and roadways. Increasing demand for geocells in the infrastructure and construction sector owing to its application including erosion control, ground stabilization and load support, retaining wall facings, slope protection, and channel protection is expected to surge the geocell market growth. Earth reinforcement, slope protection, and channel protection are important applications that are expected to propel the market growth over the next seven years. Increasing growth in the agricultural sector requires strong irrigation facilities and river embankment projects which are predicted to increase the geocells market growth. Government policies and regulations in developed countries concerning sustainable infrastructure development and erosion control are expected to spur the demand for geocells over the forecast period. Moreover, the need for connecting various cities, towns, and villages is expected to spur the railways and roadways sector which in turn is expected to propel the market demand.
North America is expected to show significant geocell market growth owing to its strict government policies & regulations and rapidly growing infrastructure over the forecast period. Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow substantially owing to increasing demand for geocells in various developing markets including India, China, Japan, and Malaysia Rapid infrastructure development in MEA is also expected to contribute towards the rising demand. Europe is expected to witness high demand mainly in its western region including France, Germany, Netherlands, and Austria owing to swift industrial development and regulations from the government.
Key players of the geocell market are Polymer Group Inc., Presto Geosystems, TMP Geosynthetics, Geocell Systems Inc., Strata Systems Inc., Wrekin Products, Ltd., Armtec Infrastructure Inc. Maccaferri S.P.A, ACE Geosynthetics, Alliance Geosynthetics, Terram, Wall Tag Pte Ltd., PRS Mediterranean Ltd., Miakom Group of Companies, Geo Products, Tensar International Ltd., Admir Technologies, Polyfabrics Australia Pty Ltd., Hanes Geo Components, Tencate Geosynthetics, Bonar, Huifeng Geosynthetics, ABG Geosynthetics, SABK International and CeTeau Group. Alliance Geosynthetics geocells comprises of expandable panels made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Standard cells are perforated and textured to maximize drainage and cell wall friction. The cellular mattresses are filled with sand, rock, or soil and are then compacted. TERRAM Geocell offers geocells made from permeable geotextile which is used to fight erosion up to a slope of 45 degrees. Permeability of the geocells allows vegetation growth and drainage and thus provide erosion resistance. These geocells are flexible enough to be made around obstacles including trees and lamp posts.
