The global erosion and sediment Control Market is projected to be valued at over USD 95.8billion by the end of 2027 and exhibit a moderate CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period.
Erosion and sediment runoff have a significant impact on construction and water management systems. Runoff causes dust generation, sediment deposition within storm water drainage pipes and culverts, deposition of coarse sediment in the waterway, sedimentation of wetlands, turbidity within dams, rivers, and ponds, and sedimentation in rivers and oceans. This erosion and sediment runoff adversely affect the health and biodiversity of aquatic life, increase the concentration of nutrients and metals within these water bodies, increases the risk of flooding, cause bank erosion and channel instabilities, and increases the maintenance cost of storm water and water management. Thus, with an increase in occurrences of runoff, erosion and sediment control play a vital role in storm water and water management.
Increased government initiatives and farmers’ investments to protect its crops from runoffs and continuous development in erosion and sediment control products have increased the consumption of erosion and sediment control products globally—rainwater runoff and storm water runoff damage property on a large scale. Furthermore, runoff flowing from construction sites carries sediments and other pollutants such as construction material, concrete washout, paints, wastewater, fuels, oil, and solvents. The contaminated runoff is then discharged into local streams, rivers, and lakes. Thus, it is crucial to control erosion and sediment runoff at construction sites to prevent soil erosion by installing wattles, logs, or turfs and blankets. Furthermore, erosion and sediment control are widely used in highways and road construction and drainage pipes to avoid flooding.
Therefore, erosion and sediment control products have witnessed a massive spike in demand globally due to the adverse impact of runoffs.
The global erosion and sediment Control Market has been segmented based on product type and end use.
Base on the product type, the global market is segmented into mats, turfs, and blankets; filter socks, logs, and wattles; woven sediment fences and silt fences; filtration systems; sediment basins; and others. The mats, turfs, and blankets segment was valued at USD 1,840.9 million in 2019. However, the filter socks, logs, and wattles emerged as the fastest-growing segment exhibiting a CAGR of 7.10% during the assessment period.These products are used to provide and promote stabilization and control erosion. Mats and blankets are designed to provide erosion control and assist in the establishment of vegetation. They offer protection to bare soils, mostly on slopes, from the impacts of rain. These products are mostly used in developing countries as they are cost-effective, easy to install and provide immediate protection. The filter socks are mainly used for sediment control, stormwater management, and to stabilize and prevent the erosion of channel beds, inclined land masses like river or pond banks, and within living retaining walls.
Based on end use, the global erosion and sediment control market is segmented into highway & road construction, energy and mining, government & municipality, landfill construction & maintenance, infrastructure development, industrial manufacturing, and others. The highway & road construction segment accounted for the largest market share of 33.7% in 2019, registering the highest CAGR of 6.87%.Road construction has increased significantly worldwide in the last decades to meet the demands of the increasing human population; this has led to serious soil erosion problems. Road construction results in hill-slope profile modification, removal of vegetation cover, and the formation of steep slopes prone to severe erosion.Rapid urbanization across the globe results in infrastructure development which is driving the demand for sediment and erosion control.
Triton Environmental (US), SMI Companies (US), ACF Environmental (US), Silt Management Supplies (US), Construction Ecoservices (US), GEI Works (US), L & M Supply (US), Aussie Erosion Pty Ltd (Australia), Jen-Hill Construction Materials (US), and Geosolutions, Inc (US) are the key players in the global erosion and sediment control market.
