The use of geosynthetics—geotextiles, geomembranes, drainage composites and geogrids—is an annual growth market in the U.S./Canadian specialty fabrics industry.
Prior to 2009, the U.S./Canadian geosynthetics market grew 5 to 6 percent per year before the economic debacle of 2009. In 2009, the use of geosynthetics declined about 5 percent in the U.S. and Canada; but growth rebounded to about 2 percent in 2010.
Developments driving optimism in the U.S. market for geosynthetics include:
The 2010 U.S./Canadian geosynthetics market improved moderately in terms of sales and general business conditions. The majority of geosynthetic suppliers/distributors are optimistic that 2011 will yield increased sales and an overall improvement in general business conditions.
