The road & highway construction segment is projected to lead the geofoams market in terms of both value and volume during the forecast period
Based on application, the road & highway construction segment led the geofoams market in 2019 in terms of both value and volume. The growth of this segment can be attributed to incessant infrastructural growth in emerging economies, such as China, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Mexico, which is driving the growth of the road & highway construction segment. Furthermore, factors such as better road connectivity in regions such as Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East are resulting in the hike in demand for road & highway construction segment and thus propelling the demand for geofoams as well.
The expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam type segment is projected to lead the geofoams market in terms of both value and volume from 2019 to 2024
Based on type, the expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam segment accounted for the largest share of the geofoams market in 2018. The expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam segment is projected to lead the market in terms of both value and volume during the forecast period. The expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoams are compatible with a multitude of geofoam construction applications such as roads, foundations, highways, and others in road & highway construction industry. The growth in this market is mainly attributed to extensive usage of the increasing use of expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam in infrastructural applications such as roads, highways, railways, foundations, and others.
Asia Pacific is projected to lead the geofoams market during the forecast period, in terms of both value and volume
The Asia Pacific region is projected to lead the geofoams market from 2019 to 2024, in terms of both value and volume. The demand for geofoams is increasing in Asia Pacific owing to growth in road & highway construction in the region. Also, the rising economies such as China and India in the region is expected to fuel the demand for new road pavements and consecutively for the geofoams in the region. The market in this region is also projected to continue its market dominance in terms of both value and volume, from 2019 to 2024, owing to the increased demand for geofoams from countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India.
