Many countries are adopting geosynthetic products to construct road and bridges. Geosynthetics materials, especially geogrids and geotextiles, are used in road construction to increase the performance of the roads. Geogrids consists of polymers formed into rigid grid like configurations. They are used in sub-base layers of roads, to provide stiffness and strength. In addition, the development of wind energy projects has increased the demand for geosynthetic materials.

One of the major growth drivers in the market is the increasing demand for Geosynthetic products and materials from the Construction industry, especially in the emerging nations.
