Geogrid is an advanced product specifically designed for load bearing surfaces and for retaining walls. Geogrids have multi-directional properties to provide an enhanced level of stiffness and strength. Geogrids have been shown to be an effective method of improving the ultimate bearing capacity of cohesionless soils. Geogrids are commonly used to reinforce retaining walls, as well as subbases or subsoils below roads or structures. Soils pull apart under tension. Compared to soil based land filling, geogrids are more effective in stabilizing an area, under tension. Geogrids have a wide perforated surface area which allows them to transfer the load to a larger area of soil and hence stabilize the area.

Geogrids are polymeric material, structured in nature and formed from sheets of polypropylene or polyethylene. They can also be manufactured by weaving or knitting and coating numerous high tenacity polymer yarns. Geogrids have open spaces ranging from 2 inches to 4 inches which allows a greater interaction between soil or aggregate and the geogrid. The high tensile strength of the geogrids makes them appropriate for use in soil reinforcement.

The rudimentary function of geogrids, in combination with soil or aggregate is to provide a composite system for the better load bearing properties and to make the whole system complete. Geogrids have a wide range of application from soil reinforcement to rail industry. The use of geogrids also provides, in most cases, extensive cost savings and decreased life cycle costs when compared to other structural solutions.

The global geogrid market is moderately fragmented, where ACE Geosynthetics Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Taiwan), Tensar International Corporation (The U.S.), Strata Systems (The U.S.), NAUE GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), and Low & Bonar PLC (U.K.) captured around 70% of the market share in production and supply.

Geogrids are integrated into standard pavement designs and construction activities to improve the long-term performance or reduce initial construction costs. Geogrids are produced from materials which are polymeric in nature, such as polyester, polyethylene or polypropylene. They can also be produced as woven or knitted from yarns, or heat welded from strips of material, or can even be produced by punching a regular pattern of holes in sheets of material, and then stretched into a grid. Geogrids are used to improve the performance of aggregate base course materials supporting any structure such as road and railways. Geogrids provide good load bearing capacity and also confinement to the unbound aggregate materials or soil by restricting their lateral and vertical deformation for the proper stability of the structure under construction and reducing any risks associated with the development.

The global market size for geogrid materials in terms of value is projected to surpass $1.5 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of around 13.0% from 2015 to 2020.

The use of geogrids in road and rail industry is basically for the base reinforcement. The alternative to this is the digging up of sub-grade from any other area of the soil and then filling up the required area with it. This process takes a lot of time and is cost inefficient. Geogrids are now-a-days used largely as a replacement material for this practice. Geogrids increase the bearing capacity of the sub-grade soil while greatly reducing the loss of the aggregate cover material into wet, weak or subgrade saturated soils. Geogrids application as an asphalt reinforcement is also becoming popular. The reason for the use of geogrids is to reduce the amount of asphalt required in road construction. The use of geogrids in this application also decreases the life cycle costs for the road ways. The integration of geogrids with asphalt minimizes stress cracking and lateral movement.

Globally, Asia-Pacific is projected to have the largest geogrid market size in terms of value as well as volume by 2020, followed by the North America region. Asia-Pacific is also projected to be the fastest growing market, at a CAGR of around 17.0% from 2015 to 2020, owing to rise in consumption in the region, where end-user markets of geogrids is growing steadily, especially in road and rail infrastructural developments. The European market is projected to grow at a rate of about 7.0% in terms of value.
