Geogrids and geotextiles are often used together to perform various functions, such as soil reinforcement, separation, drainage, filtration and protection. Implementation of the mega-project, “Gulf Railway” which is to connect all the countries present in the Gulf Cooperation Council by 2017, is expected to be one of the primary factors driving the demand for geotextiles and geogrids. In addition, gigantic road development projects are expected to play a significant role in the growth of the market within the forecast period, due to the sandy terrain of the region and focus of the various governments on infrastructural development. However, fluctuating costs of key raw materials, such as polypropylene and polyester on account of depleting petroleum reserves is expected to hamper the growth of the market over the next few years. Rising consumer awareness regarding advantages of natural geotextiles is expected to open new opportunities for the growth of the market over the next few years.
Nonwovens were the largest product type within the geotextile market segment and accounted for over 65% of the market share in 2012 due to its extensive use in drainage sub-systems and road construction. Increasing infrastructural activities in GCC countries, particularly road and drainage systems, is expected to drive the demand for nonwoven geotextiles over the next few years. It is expected to witness the fastest growth in this region within the forecast period.
Road construction and erosion control were the largest application segments of geotextiles in GCC (including UAE), accounting for over 60% of the market share in 2012. Erosion control is expected to be the fastest growing segment within the forecast period on account of growing infrastructure development such as roads, drainage systems and commercial and non-commercial construction. Demand for geotextiles in erosion control in UAE is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2013 to 2019.
Within the geogrids market segment, roadways were the largest application segment in 2012 in GCC and UAE. Geogrids are also being increasingly used in landscaping as they help in soil reinforcement. Road construction and landscaping are expected to witness the fastest growth over the next few years on account of increased construction activities such as expansion of airports, residential restructuring and development of commercial complexes. Demand for geogrids for application landscaping in GCC (excluding UAE) is expected to be 10,910.6 thousand square meters by 2019.
