Geotextiles Market Size was valued at USD 6.96 billion in 2022. The Geotextiles market industry is projected to grow from USD 7.37 Billion in 2023 to USD 12.52 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.85% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030).
Over the projection period, geotextile usage is expected to increase in a variety of construction applications, such as highways, landfills, drainage structures, and harbors, to improve soil stabilization. The market for geotextiles is anticipated to be driven by their long lifespan and low cost, as well as rising environmental concerns over soil erosion. Promotional strategies and actions taken by regulatory agencies have helped raise knowledge of the advantages of geotextiles, which has benefited market expansion.
The use of geotextiles made of natural fibers like jute, wool, and coir is suggested as a substitute for synthetic ones. The production of bio-based geotextiles is also permitted under the regulations set forth by a number of developed nations. They are both affordable and made from natural materials. These elements are regarded as the main forces behind the expansion of the geotextiles market.
The plans and initiatives to transform developing nations into modern cities while enhancing the performance and characteristics of the soil and the roads, as well as the rising investment in the infrastructure and construction sectors, is anticipated to drive the geotextiles industry's overall expansion.
This market is divided into synthetic and natural segments based on material. Polypropylene, polyester, and polyethylene are further divided under the category of synthetic materials. In the upcoming years, it is projected that the polypropylene (PP) segment will continue to dominate. Low elongation and high strength characteristics of PP woven fabric provide slope support, stabilization, and erosion management. Because of its characteristics, including its lightweight, low elongation, stability under heavy construction loads, and high tensile strength, it is frequently used in pavements, roads, dams, riverbanks, diversion irrigation, and railroad projects. The natural material is divided into two more categories: coir and jute. During the predicted period, jute is likely to take the segmental growth lead.
Companies are under pressure to provide eco-friendly and natural products as environmental concerns and government rules around carbon emissions rise. Jute is an eco-friendly and biodegradable natural fabric that can be used in place of various synthetic materials. It also has excellent moisture retention abilities, is simple to install, has high tensile strength, is biodegradable, and is less expensive. Construction of road pavement, soil reinforcement, and riverbank protection all employ it.
In March 2020, in order to create a system for a virtuous cycle of resources, Hyosung TNC inked an MOU with the Busan Metropolitan Government and Netspa, an eco-friendly social venture firm, to collect and recycle used fishing nets into eco-friendly fiber. Busan Mayor Park Hyeong-joon, Hyosung TNC CEO Kim Yong-seup, and Netspa CEO Chung Taek-soo all attended the signing ceremony.
In December 2019, Thrace Group transferred its needle punch line from Thrace-Linq, a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary in South Carolina, to the company’s Don & Low facility located in Forfar, Scotland, with the goal of consolidating and strengthening its presence in northwestern Europe and the U.K.

Due to the region's growing infrastructure development, the Asia-Pacific is predicted to have a bigger market value in the geotextiles sector. New initiatives are being welcomed and new investments are being made in the construction industry by nations like China and India. In the Asia-Pacific region, there is a growing need for decent housing and healthcare facilities. The governments of the Asian nations are boosting their investments in that sector as a result.
On the other hand, European nations like Germany and the U.K. are producing geotextiles with distinct properties and features to accommodate a range of applications. The governments of these nations are also putting forth a set of guidelines for manufacturers to follow in order to uphold standards. The geotextiles business is anticipated to grow more broadly throughout the region during the forecast period as a result of the rules and standards pertaining to geotextiles that prevent erosion. Also, the frequent upgrading of sewage and drainage systems in nations like the United States and Canada creates good conditions for the expansion of the geotextiles market in such nations.
