Waterproofing chemicals are high quality materials used on large scale in building and construction industry to protect buildings and infrastructures against water penetration. Waterproofing chemicals have high sturdiness intended to lesser the maintenance cost and increase the life of built structure. Various types of waterproofing chemicals are available worldwide, among which the majorly used include acrylic polymer, elastomeric coatings, polyurethane, expanded polyethylene and many others. These can be used in slurry, liquid as well as in solid form.
As roofing was the largest application for waterproofing chemicals and the trend is expected to grow on account of increased government expenditure on infrastructure enhancement, speedy urbanization coupled with increasing income of middle class population, it is expected to fuel the growth of waterproofing chemicals market in coming years. Increasing product awareness among consumers is expected to have optimistic impact on the waterproofing chemicals market over the forecast period. Broadening of niche applications for waterproofing chemicals such as subsoil waterproofing, bitumen bonding and expansion joints is likely to mark positive growth of this sector. Waterproofing chemical market has immense future growth potential as it is developing with the new composites with enhanced self-adhesion and durability.
However, global market may be restrained due to volatile raw material costs which are mainly reliant on demand and supply of petrochemicals. Besides, owing to flexible and water resilient ability, these chemicals have massive applications in water management, tunnel liners and geomembranes. There are various other areas that are expected to open new market opportunities for waterproofing chemicals during the forecast period. Waterproofing chemicals are mostly used in fabric and textile industry for enormous production of breathable and waterproof fabrics. Market contributors have been constantly concentrating on commercializing organic routes for developing eco-friendly waterproofing chemicals.
