Soil Stabilization Market Overview and Introduction

Soil stabilization can defined as the chemical or physical treatment of soil to enhance or maintain its stability and simultaneously improve its engineering properties. This process is used to treat a wide range of sub-grade materials including expansive clays and granular materials. Soil stabilization can be accomplished using a variety of additives including lime, fly-ash, bitumen, and cement. The benefits of soil stabilization include, increment in the shear strength of soil, improvements in its load-bearing capacity, reduction in plasticity, elimination of excavation, and reduction of pavement thickness.  

Rapid urbanization among developing countries, to boost building & construction sector is one of the major factors responsible for driving the global soil stabilization market. Moreover, improved quality and properties of soil stabilization additives, rising adoption of soil management and growing infrastructure projects are propelling the soil stabilization market. However, high cost associated with stabilization equipment is likely to restrain the growth of the market to a certain extent.

Soil Stabilization Market By Method, By Additive & By Application

The global soil stabilization market is segmented into by method, by additive, and by application. Based on method, the soil stabilization market can be segmented into mechanical and chemical methods. The chemical segment of is projected to account for the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The chemical method soil stabilization assists in constructing concrete layers over unpaved roads, dust control on roads & highways, and prevent soil erosion. Based on the additives, the market can be segmented into polymer, mineral & stabilizing agents, and other additives. In 2018, mineral & stabilizing agents segment is estimated to account for the largest market share. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the wide-scale adoption of these materials for construction, agriculture, transportation, mining, and oil & gas industries. Finally, based on application, the market can be segmented into industrial, agricultural, and non-agricultural applications. The industrial segment is estimated to account for the largest market share owing to technological advancements in machinery & additives used for soil stabilization, infrastructural developments globally and increasing construction of roads, railroads, airfields, & dams.

Soil Stabilization Market By Region

The global soil stabilization market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). Asia-Pacific accounted the largest share of the global soil stabilization market in 2018. The high growth of this region, can be attributed to factors such as rapid urbanization, increasing awareness regarding soil management practices and continuous modernization of various stabilizing agents & stabilization machinery by manufacturers in this region, among others. Moreover increasing infrastructural investments in developing countries like India, China, and Japan have contributed significantly to market growth in this region. However, the Rest of the Worlds is projected to witness the highest CARG during the forecast period owing to factors such as increasing use of soil stabilization in agriculture, prevention of soil erosion, and dust control in these region. Moreover, the growth of the mining industry in the region, is also anticipated to considerably contribute to the rising demand for soil stabilization materials.  

Soil Stabilization Market Prominent Players

Some of the prominent players in the global soil stabilization market include Caterpillar, AB Volvo, Fayat Group, WIRTGEN GROUP, Griffin Soil Group, CARMEUSE, Graymont Limited, Aggrebind, Inc., Zydex Industries, and Soilworks, LLC, among others.
