They prevent the unwanted sediments to enter waterbodies during construction and building activities. These products are installed in a way that will provide these waterbodies sufficient settling time. The cost-effectivity of these products, coupled with diverse applications, has created a huge demand in recent years. Increasing construction activities have opened up a wider scope of applications and subsequently high product adoption. The increasing investment in installation of the product by contractors and workers will bode well for the market in the coming years. The high emphasis by manufacturers on developing efficient products with improved features such as durability and rigidity will have a positive impact on the growth of the overall market in the foreseeable future. Additionally, the presence of several large scale companies will create several growth opportunities for the market.

Although few companies that fall under the essential category continue their operations, majority of the companies have been shut down temporarily. This is mainly done to control the spread of the disease. The rapid spread of the disease has created panic across the world and governments are imposing strict measures to curb the pandemic.
