Global Geotextiles Market Highlights over 2022 – 2030

The global geotextiles market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~11% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the various advantages of geotextiles, such as, erosion resistance, higher strength and durability, and overlay stress absorption. Moreover, use of geotextiles protects the road or pavement from degradation by soil, while also safeguarding the biodiversity of the soil. Moreover, geotextiles also provide greater stability to roads, and other infrastructures. Growing construction activities across the world is estimated to boost the market growth. Furthermore, natural geotextiles are being extensively used to curb deforestation by reducing soil erosion and degradation of vegetation. Additionally, geotextiles are used to regenerate forest areas. The growing government concerns to reduce deforestation and loss of vegetation is estimated to boost the market growth. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the U.N., since 1990, over 420 million hectares of forest have been converted into industrial land. Between 2015 to 2020, the annual rate of deforestation reached 10 million hectares per year.
