Cellular Confinement Systems Market Size (2022-2027):

The global cellular confinement systems market was valued at US$ 150.71 Million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 463.51 Million by 2027, at a CAGR of 18.50% during the forecast period 2022-2027.

The market for cellular confinement systems (geocells) is likely to experience substantial expansion during the outlook period, mainly driven by a growing call from emerging markets in Asia-Pacific and Latin America, due to its escalating use in the construction sector. Cellular confinement systems were first developed by the US military in the 1970s to build roads and runways on soft ground and in wet weather conditions. These systems are also known as geocells. Geocells are mainly employed in the construction industry in the fields related to earth reinforcement, slope protection, channel protection, load-bearing and tree root protection. These systems are widely employed for soil erosion protection, slope protection and channel protection due to their honeycomb structure. Worldwide, cellular confinement systems are widely employed in the construction industry.

Market Trends:

Rapid developments in infrastructure and roads, escalating urbanization in emerging markets, increased use of geocells in slope and channel protection are the main factors likely to drive expansion in this market during the conjecture period. On the other hand, the prevalence of geocell substitutes is likely to slow down the expansion of this market over the period 2022 - 2027; however, the impact of this limiting factor is supposed to be minimal in the long term. Ongoing research and development activities in the design of cellular confinement systems are estimated to create more possibilities for high-load applications in the coming years. Geocells are employed in the construction industry as soil reinforcement, slope and channel protection, load-bearing, and tree root protection. The sheer potency of the filler is enhanced by blocking substances in each cell. When implemented on surfaces, CORE geocell structures form a unified structural concentration, combating lateral force and movement. The CORE geocell is simply deconstructed and can optionally be recycled. The tight padding also provides balance in sloping areas and gives it strength.

Market Drivers:

Strong expansion in the construction and infrastructure sector worldwide and escalating urbanization in some developing countries are the main drivers of the expansion of the global cellular confinement systems market. Most developed countries have adopted regulations on erosion control and sustainable infrastructure development. These guidelines and initiatives are driving the market for cellular confinement systems. The rising development of the infrastructure and manufacturing framework area in the world and the increasing development in some emerging countries are important players for the expansion of the market. The growing application of cell confinement systems for water conservancy activities, the escalating need for high quality polyester and mixed cell containment functions, and the growing nanofiber construct and cell containment functions, which are additional factors that make the market work.

Market Restraints:

Low awareness of cellular confinement systems among infrastructure developers in emerging economies like India, Indonesia and Brazil is hampering the market.

Market Opportunities:

The rising use of cellular confinement systems for water conservation projects, the escalatingcall for cellular confinement systems based on polyester and polymer alloys, and the development of lightweight, cell-based containment systems in nanofibers are additional factors that drive the business. Rapid infrastructure and road expansion, increased development in developing markets, increased use of bypass geocells, and average preservation are the main factors likely to drive the development of this market over the projected period. Ongoing research and development projects on cell confinement systems models are believed to generate more opportunities for heavy duty functions and generate more opportunities for their deployments in the coming years.

Market Challenges:

The availability of substitute products such as geo-networks and geo-membranes restricts the worldwide market for cellular confinement systems.

Market Segmentation:

Cellular Confinement Systems Market - By Material:

  • High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Polypropylene
  • Polyester
  • Others

The HDPE materials segment of the market is estimated to grow at a rapid CAGR during the foreseen period, mainly due to its outstanding performance and characteristics such as chemical resistance, resistance to weathering, ultraviolet protection, high durability and flexibility.

Cellular Confinement Systems Market - By Application:

  • Earth Reinforcement
  • Slope Protection
  • Railways & Roadways
  • Others

In terms of application, the earth reinforcement segment accounted for a significant market share in 2018. In terms of revenue, the railway and roadway segment is predicted to contribute significantly during the conjecture period. The growing need to connect various towns, cities and towns is likely to boost the rail and road sector, which in turn is estimated to drive the market. The Earth Reinforcement segment records a significant market share in 2020. In terms of revenue, the Railways and Roadways segment is supposed to provide a notable donation throughout the envisioned period. It is estimated that the escalatingcall for association from different cities, towns and villages will increase the railway and road areas, which in turn would increase the market.

Regional Analysis:

  • North America 
  • Europe 
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America 
  • Middle East & Africa 

North America dominated the worldwide market in 2018. This trend is predicted to continue during the foreseen period due to strict government policies and regulations and rapidly growing infrastructure. The United States is a key consumer of cellular confinement systems in North America. The Asia Pacific market is estimated to grow at maximum CAGR during the conjecture period due to surge incall for cellular confinement systems in several developing countries including India, China and Malaysia, mainly due to increased activity in the construction and infrastructure sector. Europe is envisioned to grow at a stable CAGR during the forecast period due to rapid industrial development and government regulations.

Furthermore, the Middle East and Africa region is predicted to make a significant contribution during the projection period. North America was the largest market across geographies due to the extensive use of cellular confinement systems in the earth reinforcement and slope protection segments. In addition, these systems are widely employed in rail and highway applications in North America. The Asia-Pacific region is foreseen to see expansion at the highest CAGR over the determined period. The emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and Latin America, such as India, China and Brazil, are among the fastest growing economies and these economies are predicted to experience substantial expansion during the foreseen period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Cellular Confinement Systems Market:

In today's globalized world, there is almost no place that has not been affected by the severity of the new coronavirus pandemic. Almost all business activities are suffering at the hands of the ruthless COVID-19. Due to the inherent nature of business activity, some industries may unwittingly thrive under the pandemic, while others would weather the storm, albeit with great difficulty, but among the worst hit, the construction and engineering sector is definitely on the wrong sideof the curve. To contain the pandemic, like many countries, the Indian government also imposed a blockade, currently until April 14, 2020, restricting the movement of people and gatherings. In the construction industry, multitudes of workers work together to meet deadlines. However, due to restrictions imposed by the government, all construction activities and most commercial activities throughout the country have ceased. The blockade has multiple consequences, which would further aggravate the problems of the sector, such as reverse migration, the interruption of supply chains, among others. Taken together, the above circumstances would hamper compliance with the obligations derived from construction and engineering contracts and would give rise to multiple legal disputes for the sector once the current restrictions are lifted.
