Geogrid is made from polymers which includes materials like polyesters, polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl alcohols (PVA). It is a geo-synthetic material used to provide tensile reinforcement of soil in civil engineering applications. They are available in form of open grids which allows the soil and other material to give a composite behavior. It also allows the soil to strike through the opening. Even though their primary function is soil reinforcement, some products are designed for asphalt overlay and waterproofing or for separation and stabilization.
They are available in form of open grids which allows the soil and other material to give a composite behavior. It also allows the soil to strike through the opening.
Geogrid is applied in the construction of several structures like retaining walls, steep slopes, roadway bases, foundations and others. The ever growing development of transportation sector is favoring the future growth and value of this market along with the infrastructure developmental activities which enriches its worth and emerging trends like adoption of natural geosynthetics. Unstable prices of polyester and polypropylene, dependent upon inconsistent crude oil prices are forecasted to obstruct the product demand.
The global geogrid market in this report has been analyzed with respect to different parameters such as demand, supply, share, market size, end-users and manufacturers of geogrid. Geogrid market is categorized into types, specifications and end-users of the industry. On the basis of type, geogrids are segmented into three type. They are punched and drawn geogrids, coated yarn geogrids and welded rods or strap geogrids. Geogrids primarily consist of two functions; Uniaxial and Biaxial. Depending on the geogrid applications such as Roadways, Railways, Soil Reinforcement, Construction and others, respective specification of geogrid is used. The global geogrid market is forecasted to collect wholesome amount of revenue and experience growth at a CAGR of xx% through 2016-2022. Biaxial geogrid is the fastest growing type of geogrid and accounts for the largest share owing to its potential and capabilities to work suitably under conditions like contaminated soils, weak subgrades, heavy loads, etc.
