BMIRE00026129 | Pages: 100 | Chemicals and Materials | Sep 2022 | Type: Global | Status: Published

The market crossed US$ 804 million mark in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 1,285 million by 2030, recording a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period.

Low cost compared to traditional land stabilization materials

Geofoams are a preferred alternative to traditional fill materials which offer excellent physical properties at a low cost and help engineers to execute projects without cost and time overruns. Geofoams can be installed by hand using simple hand tools, which limits the labor requirements for construction thereby eliminating the investment and operating cost. These are some of the qualities of geofoams, which make them a preferred alternative to traditional land stabilization materials. These factors are projected to propel the market growth in the forecast period.

Within the report, the market is segmented into type, application, and geography. By type, the market is further segmented into expanded polystyrene geofoams, extruded polystyrene geofoams. By application, the market is categorized into road and highway construction, building and infrastructure, airport runways and taxiways, others. Geographically, the market is sub segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Increasing infrastructural activities and technological developments in geofoams

The large-scale development of infrastructure in emerging economies and the maintenance of existing infrastructure in developed countries are driving the market for geofoam. Expanded polystyrene offers several advantages compared to conventional earthen embankments, which include rapid construction and the use of prefabricated bridge and bridge support components. Such technological innovations of geofoam applications further expected to propel the growth of the geofoam market.

Rising demand for expanded polystyrene geofoam accelerating the market growth

Expanded polystyrene geofoam is gaining popularity as a generally appropriate and cost-effective building insulation material. It is widely used for structural filling materials, elevated slab applications, road building. These geofoams are highly lightweight and can withstand harsh environments. The two main properties that make EPS geofoam so attractive in design and construction are its low density for stress and deformation-related construction problems and its thermal insulation properties that help to fight frost-related problems.
