Geocells Market

Geocells Market by Raw Material (High-density Polyethylene, Polypropylene), Design Type (Perforated, and Non-Perforated), Application (Load Support, Channel & Slope Protection, Retention of Walls), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

Report Code: BC 6210 Apr, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

[102 Pages Report] The global geocells market was valued at USD 352.0 million in 2016 and is projected to register a CAGR of 8.0% between 2017 and 2022. The market size of the geocells market was 99.1 million square meters in 2017 and is expected to reach 132.5 million square meters with a CAGR of 6% in terms of volume. Increased cost savings in road construction is the major driver of the market.

Geocells are lightweight, strong, and mostly three-dimensional systems that are fabricated from strips of polymer sheets or geotextiles. These are also known as cellular confinement systems. These geocells are advanced geosynthetic materials that increase the bearing capacity and strength of the structure up to five times. The use of geocells reduces the vertical stresses and the pavement thickness significantly. These cells are used in various applications, such as load support, channel & slope protection, retention of walls, and shoreline protection.

The geocells market is mainly driven by highly sophisticated technologies and designs developed by the key manufacturers of geocells.

Geocells Market

HDPE to be the largest raw material of geocells, during the forecast period

The growth of this segment can be attributed to the superior properties of HDPE such as chemical resistance, weather resistance, ultraviolet protection, and high durability. In addition, easy availability and relatively low cost of HDPE drive its use in geocells.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Market

Perforated to be the leading design type for geocells during the forecast period

This design is preferred over the non-perforated design as it helps in the dissipation of pore-water pressure. The dissipation of pore-water pressure results in proper perforation reducing the overall weight of the geocells, which is essential for the system’s stability on slopes. All these design advantages have increased the consumption of perforated geocells, globally.

Channel & slope protection to be the fastest-growing application of geocells

Channel & slope protection is projected to be the fastest-growing application of geocells during the forecast period. Geocells are widely used in the field of geotechnical engineering to control erosion of river banks, channel beds, and slopes. They are used on embankments to stabilize the upper soil layer and prevent its erosion caused due to the surface runoff. Cellular confinement systems with aggregate or vegetated topsoil ensure the long-term stability of slopes.

The interaction between geocells and plants limits the impact of raindrops and prevents downslope movement. It also channelizes flow and reduces hydraulic shear stresses.

Geocells Market

APAC to be the fastest-growing geocells market during the forecast period

APAC is the fastest-growing geocells market during the forecast period, in terms of value. The growth is primarily attributed to the huge demand for geocells in the retention of walls, load support, and channel & slope protection applications in the region. Growing infrastructural activities in the region and increasing awareness of the benefits of geocells are the major factors driving the demand for geocells in the region. For example, for the development of the world’s tallest dam in China, and highway projects and the development of six megacities in India, there is a high demand for geocells. Similarly, the Indonesian government has selected 30 infrastructure development projects on priority (2016-2019). These infrastructural developments are also expected to drive the consumption of geocells

Market Dynamics:

Driver: Increasing usage of geocells in channel & slope protection

Governments of various countries are offering companies projects for soil protection. For example, ABG Ltd. completed a Blackmoss Reservoir project in Lancashire (UK). Similarly, Strata Systems completed a reservoir slope protection project in Chennai, India. Increasing usage of geocells in channel & slope protection is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Restraint: Volatile raw material prices

The price and availability of raw materials are the key factors considered by geocells manufacturers for determining the cost structure of their products. Raw materials used to manufacture geocells are polyester, polyethylene, and polypropylene. Most of these raw materials are petroleum-based derivatives that are vulnerable to price fluctuations. The continuous fluctuations in oil prices directly impact the profit margin of geocells manufacturers, significantly restraining their market growth.

Opportunity: Growing infrastructural development activities in emerging economies

Geocells are mainly used for building roads, railways, and soil reinforcement.Therefore, growth in infrastructural development plays a significant role in driving the use of geocells globally.

Construction activities are growing in developed as well as developing countries. Emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Vietnam, and Indonesia are witnessing extensive infrastructural development, which plays a crucial role in providing growth opportunities to the manufacturers of geocells.

Challenge: Lack of quality control across developing countries

The geocells are mostly used in government projects. Hence, the manufacturing and installation standards are set by the governments of respective countries. Players in developing countries insist their governments match their standards with international standards. Strata Systems, PRS Geosynthetics, and Presto are some of the companies that abide by the international standards or standards imposed by the respective governments. Proper policies and standards will be beneficial for both, companies and governments, to run their geocells projects. If the governments do not standardize their policies, it may hamper both environmental and commercial projects. This may lead to the breaking of regulatory rules of the governments which are not supported by associations, such as the International Nonwovens and Disposables Association (INDA), Geosynthetics Materials Association (GMA), and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). In this case, the products manufactured by the players in the developing countries will not be accepted in the international market.

Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa, and other developing nations face similar issues as the regulatory policies are not set. Furthermore, lack of autonomous and competent regulatory authority in line with international authorities and fabric associations restricts the market growth in these countries
