A geomembrane is very low permeability synthetic membrane liner or barrier used with any geotechnical engineering related material so as to control fluid (liquid or gas) migration in a human-made project, structure, or system. They are most commonly used for waterproofing, containment, and erosion control. Geomembranes are made from a variety of synthetic materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyvinyl chloride, and come in a variety of thicknesses, textures, and colors. Geomembranes can be used to create an effective barrier between the soil and a body of water or a structure. The increasing shale gas production capacity in the U.S. and Canada, coupled with an increase in mining activities in South America are expected to drive the market for geomembrane over the forecast period. Increasing infrastructure spending and increased awareness of water management are projected to fuel the market for geomembrane. Furthermore, increasing activities related to environment protection, civil construction, and groundwater protection are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The geomembrane market is anticipated to reach USD 3,241.2 million by 2030 from USD 2,098.3 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period i.e. 2022-2030.

The geomembrane market is driven by factors such as increased popularity of geosynthetics in developing regions such as APAC and LAMEA. In addition, the increased concerns regarding water and waste management have increased the demand for geomembrane.

Growth Drivers

The market for geomembranes is anticipated to grow in the coming years due to increasing awareness of rainwater harvesting, stringent government norms for environmental conservation, etc. Moreover, rising focus of manufacturers to introduce innovative membranes are driving the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The mining industry is one of the major consumers of geomembranes. Geomembranes are used to help recapture and recycle the harmful chemicals being used in solution to treat ponds and secondary containment applications. This is expected to drive the growth of the geomembranes market during the forecast period.

There is a surging demand for waste management in order to lower pollution. The growing usage of geomembranes for the treatment of inorganic wastes such as hazardous heavy metals is driving the global geomembranes market during the forecast period. Geomembranes are used to deliver clean water to the community. Canals, dams, and reservoirs are sealed with geomembranes liners in order to prevent contamination of potable water with soil and other pollutants as well as prevent loss of water through infiltration of the water into the surrounding soil these are some of the factors boosting the growth of geomembranes market across the globe.

To effectively contain liquids and gases on a broad scale, geomembranes offer’s a virtually impenetrable barrier. Consequently, depending on the application and chemicals used for the lining application, geomembranes are produced for the lowest permeability achievable. This is also a major factor driving the growth of the global geomembranes market.

According to the Confederation of International Contractors ‘Associations (CICA), the output for residential and non-residential infrastructures will grow by 85% in terms of volume by 2030. Heavy infrastructural development combined with innovation in geomembranes, these membranes are widely used for road construction activities globally as they help to strengthen weak soil by holding them together thereby, increasing the life span of roads. Thus, growing infrastructural development are expected to drive growth opportunities for the geomembranes market during the forecast period.
