Furthermore, with the growing demand for geogrids, companies engaged in geogrid businesses are rapidly enhancing their capabilities by investing substantially in research & development, introducing environmentally sustainable solutions, etc., to capture the emerging opportunities in the US, Germany, France, China, Japan, etc. For instance:

  • In 2021, HUESKER Group launched Fortrac T eco PET recycled yarn geogrid, made from 100% recycled polyester (PET) yarns.
  • In the same year, Tensar International Corp. hosted the InterAxion Conference that focused on launching & infrastructure of new geogrid, InterAx, to improve the longevity of the infrastructure. 

However, the widening awareness gap about the geogrid has impeded the growth of its global market. A significant portion of potential end-users is unaware of geogrids & it's benefits like enriched performance, durability, and better productivity of infrastructure assets. Moreover, the lack of awareness campaigns, workshops, etc., for promoting the use of geogrids has also posed a significant growth challenge to its global market.

Disruption in Raw Materials Supply due to the Covid-19 Pandemic had a Transitory Impact on the Global GeoGrid Market

The global imposition of lockdown measures to curb the spread of coronavirus led to a disruption in the supply chain of raw materials, such as high-density polyethylene, polyester, & coatings, among others, required for manufacturing geogrids, entwined with price fluctuations. Since the pandemic, the prices of crude oil have rapidly soared, which has led to turbulence in the availability of raw materials.

As a result, the prices of geogrids significantly hiked due to limited stock available in the market. Hence, the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in increased costs of geogrids. Additionally, the shortage of raw materials led to the discontinuation of geogrids production globally.

However, with the gradual relaxation in mobility restrictions worldwide and the resumption of manufacturing units, the demand for geogrids experienced a steady revival in early 2021. Currently, the market is on the trajectory of recapturing its usual growth pace & expects to flourish in the years to come.

  • Uniaxial GeoGrids
  • Biaxial Geogrids
  • Triaxial Geogrids

Of them all, Biaxial geogrids accounted for a noteworthy share in the Global GeoGrid Market during 2017-20. This growth attributes principally to their superior junction strength & optimum load-bearing properties. Moreover, they provide high strength in both longitudinal & transverse directions, due to which they have been used widely during the construction of structures like highways, flyovers, bridges, & landfills. Due to these aspects, biaxial geogrids have been observing an inclining demand trend globally for a few years. For instance:

  • In late 2019, Best Project Material Co., Ltd., a manufacturer & supplier of geogrid & other geosynthetic products, delivered 16,700 sq. m. Biaxial Plastic Geogrid for a landfill project in Indonesia.
  • Similarly, in the same year, Strata Geosystems opened its new production facility in Gujarat, India, to manufacture flexible geogrids, including biaxial & HDPE geocells, and cater to the large-scale domestic & international demands.

Furthermore, biaxial geogrids assist in increasing the roadbed thickness up to 3-5 times, compared to uniaxial geogrids. As a result, their deployment is relatively higher in pavement construction & soil stabilization projects across North America, Asia-Pacific, etc. For instance:

  • In 2018, Layfield USA expanded its product line by becoming the distributor of BOSTD's biaxial geogrid for its West coast synthetic business to cater to the growing demand in the region's several civil construction & infrastructure projects.

Based on Manufacturing Method:

  • Extrusion
  • Knitten/Woven
  • Bonded/Welded

Here, the demand for Knitted/Woven Geogrids experienced modest growth in the previous few years.
