About this market
Increasing demand for textile reinforced concrete to drive market growth. Textile reinforced concrete (TRC) is a composite material in which fabrics are used as reinforcement to bring significant loads in tension that can further be used in thin cross-sections. TRC is used in the construction of bridges, arenas, parking garages, houses, silos, towers, and other infrastructures. To avoid corrosion on the concrete structures, TRC is used to eliminate these drawbacks of concrete structures. Technavios analysts have predicted that the construction fabrics market will register a CAGR of about 5% by 2023.
Benefits of using construction fabrics
Construction fabrics are textiles, which are used in the construction of buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels and roads, and other infrastructure projects. These textiles exhibit mechanical properties such as lightweight; high strength and resilience; and the capability to withstand sunlight, harsh environment conditions (such as rain and wind), and chemical reactions and pollutants. These textiles play an important role in the modernization of infrastructure. PVC, PTFE, and ETFE are some types of commonly used construction fabrics.
Problems related to PVC coated polyester fabrics
PVC coated fabrics are predominantly used in the global construction fabrics market. However, PVC coated polyester fabrics are difficult to recycle and release harmful toxins in the presence of fire. Therefore, these are considered harmful to the environment and human health.
