Geotextile growth projected in India

September 1st, 2009 / By: / Geosynthetics, Industry News

Economic stability in India has boosted demand for more roads, railways, highways, bridges, canals and dams, and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) projects a 20 percent increase in the geotextile sector based on the boom. Geotextiles enhance design, durability, cost-effectiveness and aesthetics of infrastructure projects, and demand is expected to grow 10-12 percent through 2013. The FICCI organized a conference on “Geosynthetics: Opportunities and Challenges” to help textile manufacturers take advantage of this potentially dynamic market.
