Geotextile sector booming in China

December 8, 2011

Forty percent of the 300 square meter volume is in nonwovens.

China's geotextile market currently exceeds 300 million square meters, with 40% of the volume being nonwoven geotextiles, says geosynthetica.net. From 2006 to 2010, the country's manufacturing output of geotextile materials rose more than 35% annually, according to information exchanged during the December 3 China Geotextiles Composite Materials Summit 2011 held in Lingxian, Shandong.

In an article from Yarns and Fibers Exchange (YNFX), Li LingSshen, president of China Nonwovens and Industrial Textiles Association (CNITA), attributes much of the geotextile market's growth to sustained, heavy infrastructure investment, particularly in regards to water management and transportation.

YNFX reports that geotextiles are among the construction materials emphasized in China's 12th Five-year Plan, which provides guidance on development from 2011 to 2015.

The nation's output of geotextiles rose to 405,000 tons in 2010 and is expected to reach 730,000 tons by 2015.
