These textiles are used in the construction of buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels and roads and collectively comprise the “Buildtech” sector. They offer mechanical properties such as lightness, strength and resilience as well as resistance to many factors such as creep, degradation by chemicals and pollutants in the air or rain and other construction material as well as the effects of sunlight and acid. These textiles play an important role in the modernization of infrastructure. On the other hand, construction textiles are prone to installation damage and their reliability is uncertain which might hamper the growth of the construction textile market. In order to overcome such problems manufacturers are now focusing towards the production of durable, reliable and quality construction textiles.

Some of the major products covered under this sector are used in ;

  • Hoardings and Signages
  • Scaffolding Nets
  • Awnings and canopies
  • Tarpaulins
  • Architectural membranes
  • Roofing materials
  • 4.73%

    Expected CAGR


Expanding infrastructure across the world and demand for innovation is foreseen to drive the demand for construction textile during the forecast period. Growing consumption of construction textile for various applications such soil sealing, ground stabilization, construction of paved and unpaved roads, green roofs and many more, is poised to propel the demand for construction textile over the forecast period. 




Textiles are utilized in many ways in the construction industry, both for permanent as well as temporary purposes. Bridges, tunnels, roads and dams are some common applications where construction textiles are used. These textiles offer an excellent combination of characteristics such as strength, resilience, lightness, resistance to chemicals, resistance to pollutants in the air etc.

Tents, awnings and marquees are some obvious temporary construction applications of construction textile. Furthermore, construction textiles are frequently used for hoardings, signages, awnings, canopies and roofing material.
