With India is making huge investments in infrastructure development in roads, railways, dams, irrigation projects, airports, seaports, and construction projects where geosynthetics can be used in enhancing design flexibility, cost effectiveness, aesthetics, functionality and long term durability of the civil, marine, environment engineering projects we undertake. Consequently the demand for geotech segment is set to grow phenomenally.

Consumption of Geotextile products is expected to grow at 12% to reach RS.300 crore by 2012-13. India uses around Rs.200 crores worth of nonwovens geotextile and Rs.75-80 crores worth of woven geotextile annually. The market for geotextiles is expected to grow in excess of 20% annually. Thus the potential for growth of Geotech is very high in India.

There is an increasing demand in infrastructure sector including roads, railways, highways, bridges, canals, dams, etc., in the current phase of speedy development in the country. With an investment of US$48,000 earmarked by India on infrastructure development up to 2009, including plans for national highways, expressways, roads, payment and railways, the demand for usage of geosynthetics is expected to grow at the rate of 10-12% a year.
