Geogrid Market Growth Driven by Increase in Global Infrastructural Activities

The geogrid market was valued at US$ 931.49 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 2,079.02 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2020 to 2028.


Geogrid is a geosynthetic material formed by combining the intersecting ribs and it is used to stabilize aterrain. Geogrids are mainly made up of polymers such as polyester, high-density polyethylene, and polypropylene. Geogrids are used as a base reinforcement to retain subsoils below roads and to reinforce retaining walls of a structure. The physical properties of geogrid such as minimal elongation with high tensile modulus and high tensile strength, make it a material of choice to be used as a reinforcement material.


Superior Properties Associated with Geogrids

Geogrids have various properties which includes minimal elongation, along with high tensile strength and tensile modulus, which makes them beneficial for soil reinforcement. The use of geogrids to the soil or other geotechnical materials will help create a composite material. Thus, due to the various properties of geogrid, there is a wide range of applications where it has been used. Geogrids are used in various applications such as retaining walls, which are used in foundation soil, pavement construction, energy sector, landfill construction, and many more. The use of geogrids for restraining walls is basically in soil backfills. The ability of holding the soil together will help in stabilizing the retaining wall construction and thus, by using geogrids, the structural integrity of the soil can be increased. It is used in building strong retaining walls for both permanent and temporary solutions.


Geogrids are used to stabilize the soil mainly in the shallow foundation. The geogrids interlock with the structural fill, providing a strong foundation, which will improve the stability of the weakest soil. Geogrids can also help in minimizing the effect of erosion and providing permanent protection. In pavement construction, geogrids are used to improve the subgrade as well as reinforce the pavement base. The geogrids are used to fill and increase the load-bearing capacity of the underlying subgrade, which helps in increasing the structural performance of the roadways.


Geogrids are also used in the energy sector for subgrade stabilization of embankments. They are also utilized in soft soils, which includes access roads, crane pads, and other Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) structures. Moreover, geogrids are used in landfill construction sites, which includes the likes of perimeter haul roads, retaining walls, reinforced steep slopes, and other such structures. Thus, an increase in use of geogrids in such kind of applications is going to drive the geogrid market across the world.
