Geosynthetic clay liner is a material similar to fabric. It works as a hydraulic barrier containing two textile layers, linked by bentonite clay. It is mostly used for the landfills’ lining. The global geosynthetic clay liner market is anticipated to reach USD 488 million by 2022.
Growing awareness of ecological protection in the mining industry is projected to augment the landfill treatment expenditure and containment solutions. This would favor market growth. Escalating spending on infrastructural development in India, China, and the Middle East is also anticipated to increase consumption of geosynthetic clay liners.

However, clogging issues related to geotextiles, in which geosynthetic clay liners are used, may threaten growth prospects in the coming years. Bio-based polymers are gaining prominence due to rising concerns over greenhouse gas emissions. This is driving spending on development of new products such as bio-polypropylene and bio-ethylene.
The global geosynthetic clay liner market is categorized as per applications and regions. Applications comprise landfill, containment & wastewater treatment, roadways & civil construction, and others. Landfill was the biggest segment and accounted for 40 percent of the total volumes in 2014.
Various regulatory bodies have introduced stringent rules that mandate waste management and disposal practices for controlling pollution in the mining industry. These directives could boost consumption of geosynthetic clay liners in landfills from 2015 to 2022.
Regional fragments encompass North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and MEA (Middle East & Africa). Asia-Pacific was the biggest regional market in 2014. It held about 30 percent of the total volumes that year. This region’s demand would reach 59 million square meters by 2022.
Increasing production of shale gas in the U.S. and Canada is likely to spur the demand in wastewater management in the North America region. Infrastructural developments in African nations such as Tanzania and South Africa will further adoption of geosynthetic clay liner in the building and road construction over the next seven years.
The global geosynthetic clay liner market is dominated by the manufacturers focussed mainly on geomembranes and geotextile owing to application growth in waste water management and soil reinforcement. Key participants of the market are Terrafix, GSE Holdings, HUESKER, and Wall Tag.
