Construction fabrics are high-performance, durable, polymer coated, and resilient architectural membrane materials. They exhibit self-cleaning properties along with strength, resilience, lightweight, resistance to chemicals and harsh weather conditions. They are made out of high strength inner fabric or mesh onto which a protective polymer coating is applied on both the sides. This helps in resisting moisture, heat, air transfer, and safeguard the fabric from mechanical and chemical damage.
The global construction fabrics market is primarily driven by the growing construction industry across the globe, owing to rapid urbanization and industrialization, especially in Asia-Pacific. The high disposable income and the changing lifestyle trend of the consumers has led to the increased number of new residential construction activities as well as renovations, home improvements, and remodeling. These construction textiles are used for various applications such as soil sealing, ground stabilization, construction of paved and unpaved roads, green roofs, and others. Furthermore, the rising demand for commercial spaces due to the growth of the service industries such as information technology and telecommunications and banking, financial services, and insurance is leading to increased construction, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the global construction fabrics market. The increasing demand for construction of eco-cities and commercial infrastructures with green roofs and vertical gardens for conservation of environment is driving the construction fabrics market.
However, the problems associated with the disposal of waste is likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period.
Market players are focusing on strategic developments such as product launches and acquisitions. For instance, in July 2017, Saint-Gobain acquired 100% of the equity capital of Kirson Industrial Reinforcements GmbH, a major producer of reinforcement scrim and combination products of scrim and nonwoven fabrics, which primarily serve the waterproofing roofing markets as well as floor coverings and construction panels.
