DUBLIN, September 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Global Geotextiles Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The global geotextiles market to grow at a CAGR of 11.35% during the period 2017-2021.
Global Geotextiles Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rising concerns regarding soil erosion. Soil degradation is increasing every year. It is estimated that 100,000 km of agricultural land is lost owing to soil erosion globally each year. This is likely to reduce the yields of the crops and endanger food security in future. It is estimated that the global food demand would increase approximately 61% by 2050. As the population is expected to reach 8.35 billion by 2030, many governments all over the world are undertaking many soil erosion initiatives.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing importance for natural fiber geotextiles. The preference for natural fibers such as coir and jute is increasing in the global geotextiles market. This is due to their exceptional benefits like cost-efficiency, low water absorbability, durability, and easy availability. In addition, coir and jute can be biodegraded completely after a span of five years. The use of natural fibers is increasing in APAC owing to the easy availability of raw materials.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is UV degradation of polypropylene. Despite having advantages like cost-effectiveness, flexural strength, low coefficient of friction, and chemical resistance, polypropylene geotextiles are prone to UV degradation. Due to the simple chain polymer structure of polypropylene, the bonds tend to break, resulting in the fragility of the polymer when the polymer is exposed to the sun and heat. This UV degradation is likely to occur in road construction application.
