HUESKER Unveils ecoLine Geogrids; Groupe Solmax Acquires GSE Environmental
The market consists of numerous big, small, and medium enterprises. They are mainly focusing on enhancing their businesses by delivering their products to various end-use application industries. Below are a couple of the latest industry developments:
- July 2019: HUESKER, a provider of high-quality geosynthetics for various applications, based in Germany, introduced its new ecoLine geogrids. They are made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The main aim of the company is to offer environmentally friendly solutions that would help in conserving natural resources during production process.
- December 2017: Groupe Solmax, a manufacturer of geosynthetics headquartered in Canada, completed its acquisition of GSE Environmental, a marketer and manufacturer of geosynthetic barrier systems based in Houston. As per the company officials, this acquisition would help in transforming Solmax into an industry leader. It would also gain several opportunities to help in remoulding the industry, based on drivers, namely, deep R&D capabilities, superior quality products, efficiency, and operational excellence.
Drivers & Restraints:
Rising Demand from Mining Sector to Propel Growth
Nowadays, geosynthetic materials are utilized for making waste barriers for mining by-products. Mining activities give out plenty of solid wastes, namely, waste rocks and tailings throughout the entire process that consists of waste disposal and containment. In this sector, geomembrane liners are extensively used for lining solutions, such as tailings impoundments, heap leaching, and evaporation ponds. Numerous organizations are also providing several geomembrane solutions to the mining sector. This sector uses around 40% of the geomembrane production worldwide. These factors are set to boost the geosynthetics market growth during the forthcoming years. However, geogrids are often damaged when they are exposed to UV light and low temperatures. It may hinder the market growth.
Moreover, they are conducting awareness programs regarding the functional advantages of these products unlike the conventional materials. A few of the benefits consist of superior load bearing capacity, high tensile strength permeability, and flexibility. Hence, it is upsurging the penetration of such products in agriculture, pavement repair, drainage, road construction, and soil erosion. They are mainly made up of polypropylene, polyethylene, or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These further aid in preventing erosion by stabilizing soil.
