Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
Geosynthetics installation involves the installation of synthetic materials as part of civil engineering and infrastructure projects. These materials are artificially created and their lightweight and durable characteristics allow them to be used in a variety of functions, such as for material separation, structure reinforcement, fluid separation, fluid drainage and fluid containment. Most of these functions are used in public and private infrastructure construction and waste and water management across agriculture, mining and related industries.
Over the past five years, the Geosynthetics Installation industry has faced a moderate level of volatility due to the global financial crisis... purchase to read more
