Geomembrane Market driven by construction industry growth is estimated to reach US$ 2,215.3 Million by 2031

Geomembranes are synthetic or geosynthetic barrier products that are used in a wide range of civil engineering and construction activities. Geomembranes are used to isolate or protect the environment and to contain fluid contaminants. They provide protective barrier and are increasingly being used in mining, waste management, water infrastructure, and transportation applications. Offering advantages such as prevention of leakage, durability, longevity, and resistance to chemical degradation, geomembranes have become important construction materials.

The global geomembrane market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,215.3 Million in 2031 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends: One of the key trends in the geomembrane market is increasing focus on recycling and sustainability. With growing environmental awareness, manufacturers are developing recyclable and sustainable geomembranes made from recycled materials like LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE. For instance, NAUE, a leading geomembrane manufacturer has developed a 100% recyclable geomembrane made from post-consumer recycled materials. Such initiatives are helping reduce dependency on virgin plastics and drive sustainable construction and infrastructure development.
