Industry Insights

The global silt curtain market size was valued at USD 7.2 million in 2018. It is expected to witness growth with a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. Rising awareness about environmental degradation owing to construction activities near the shores of water bodies is expected to drive market growth.  Moreover, the growing need for reducing water pollution is further anticipated to fuel the demand for such products in the upcoming years.

These curtains are being installed across the majority of the construction projects situated near water bodies for the prevention of sediments and silts flow along with water which contaminated the water bodies. Moreover, its usage across shorelines for reducing the loosening of soil is also gaining traction thereby boosting its demand in the upcoming years.

U.S.slit curtain market

Rising usage of such curtains across the marine industry due to its ability for reducing clogs by separation of sediments and soil during construction activities is expected to surge its demand. Moreover, increasing governmental focus to repair and reconstruct bridges and dams is also anticipated to complement the market growth in the upcoming years.

Numbers of developed countries like Germany and the U.S. have imposed compulsion over the usage of such curtains while carrying out activities of construction near the water bodies. In addition, rising concerns due to oil spills across Russia are anticipated to drive the need for usage of such curtains across all water bodies over the globe.

Product Insights

The silt curtain of Type I also named turbidity curtains is being widely used to control and regulate the runoff across calm water sources. It is projected to witness a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This growth can be associated with its usage across construction projects along the roadside, calm lakes, and small ponds.

The product segment of Type II curtains is expected to generate USD 1.7 Million by the end of 2025 owing to their ability of slit and turbidity containment especially across moving water resources. Moreover, their increasing usage for various applications like pile driving, shoreline construction, remediation projects, and riprap installation is anticipated to drive the growth of the silt curtains market in the upcoming years.

Application Insights

The application segment of erosion control is anticipated to generate USD 824.7 thousand by the end of 2025. But, currently, the penetration of the product is limited majorly to the areas where the rest of the erosion and sediment control techniques are not being used. Moreover, rising environmental awareness about the growth of vegetation by the installation of such curtains is anticipated to boost its market growth.

Global slit curtain market

The construction application segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecasted years. This growth can be associated with its rising usage in the construction and repair of civil works, bridges, rock walls, jets, joining of waterways, coastal or marine dredging, and management of sediment ponds. As these curtains help in the containment of suspended sediments near the surface of the water, they are being widely used to avoid further dispersion thereby reducing the environmental impact.

Regional Insights

North America is anticipated to generate USD 2.8 million by the end of 2025. Its growth can be attributed to the rising environmental concerns like storms and hurricanes across the region. Thus, usage of silt curtains to restore the water body structure which is affected by such calamities is expected to drive the market growth in the upcoming years.

Asia Pacific is expected to register a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecasted period, 2019 to 2025. This growth can be associated with sanctioning, commencement, and construction of water bodies across developing countries like India, China, New Zealand, and Australia. Additionally, usage of such curtains is being prevalent across all lakes and riverside projects. Moreover, their demand for the repair and maintenance of bridges and dams is also projected to drive market growth during the forecasted years.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The global silt curtain market has been negatively impacted due to the ongoing COIVD-19 crisis. The imposition of lockdown and travel restrictions has resulted in the shortage of skilled laborers for construction activities near the seashore. Also, suspensions or delays in the construction activities by governing authorities owing to lack of funds and surging need to focus on the healthcare sector rather than infrastructure development has reduced the demand for silt curtains. Also, hindrance in the supply chain of the key players due to restrictions over international cargo movement is anticipated to hamper the market growth. However, rising awareness about the usage of water devoid of sediments is projected to trigger market growth to some extent over the post-pandemic period.

Global Silt Curtains Market Share Insights

The key players in the global market of silt curtain are Nilex Inc., ACME Environmental, Elastec, GEI Works, and ABASCO LLC. They are continuously engaged in product development and innovation to improve the durability and quality of the product for serving several multiple applications.

On an individual project basis, these players are manufacturing the products as per the desired specifications provided by statutory governing bodies. These specifications mainly vary according to the project duration and operating condition of the water body. These players have also started offering to add on services like project management, distribution, fabrication, and design support. For example, Nilex Inc. has started offering solutions to tackle problems related to environmental and construction activities.
