By application waste management is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global geomembranes market during the forecast period

Mining, waste management, water management, and civil construction are the some of the major applications in the geomembranes market. Waste management is estimated to be the fastest-growing application during the forecast period. Geomembranes are essential for controlling the leakage of contaminated gas and liquid into the surrounding environment. These membranes  are widely  used in landfill caps, landfill covers, landfill liners, temporary landfill closures, animal waste containment, and sludge treatment application due to their ability to accommodate differential settlement in the waste pile.

APAC is expected to have  the largest market share during forecast period

By region, the geomembranes market has been segmented into APAC, Europe, North America, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. APAC geomembranes market was  largest market in 2021. The growth in this region  is primarily attributed to enormous potential in mining, wastewater management, and infrastructural activities in the US, Canada, and Mexico. Europe North America was the second-largest market for geomembranes owing to well-established manufacturing and construction sector of the region.
