Floating Covers Market: Introduction

Waste water treatment and water preservation initiatives have led to an increasing need for a covering to preserve water against various odds. Floating covers are made up of flexible geomembrane lining materials and are used in tanks, ponds and lagoons. Floating covers are a cost effective solution which aids in controlling odour, preventing the loss of liquids due to evaporation, block algae from developing and protect liquids from outside contamination. Floating covers can also incorporate a buoyancy system underneath the geomembrane which allows the cover to rise and fall with the level of contained liquid. One distinguishing feature of floating covers is that they allow aeration of water but not evaporation, making them an ideal choice of covers across various industrial domains. With the depleting water resources all across the globe, the demand of the global floating covers market is set to witness a steep rise during the forecast period.


The growth of the global floating covers market is attributed to their wide application and use across various domains. Floating covers are used widely across waste water treatment plants for odour control and also to dissuade wildlife from accessing the ponds. Manufacturers of floating covers are eyeing increased applications and end uses for floating covers, such as algae and methane collection, oil and gas frac lagoons, water storage reservoirs, waste lagoons, and evaporation ponds. Gradually, manufacturers of floating covers are expected to have higher preference for durable and environment-friendly products, which require little to no maintenance. Growth of the floating covers market is also driven by the need to protect water from evaporation and also to prevent the loss of water treatment chemicals such as chlorine etc. A key trend prevailing in the global floating covers market is the use of various plastic resins other than the traditional ones for enhanced mechanical performance of the floating covers. A number of case shave been reported regarding the degradation of floating covers when exposed to chlorinated water. Hence, development of floating covers with materials that resist such chemical degradations is expected to bring in new opportunities of growth for the global floating covers market. It is anticipated that gradually, all manufacturers of floating covers will prefer products which do not become saturated or degrade in water, thus facilitating growth of the global floating covers market.
