There has been an ever increasing concern for water & waste management, and this sector is expected to register the highest growth rate during 2015 to 2020. Owing to increasing industrialization and improved macroeconomic conditions, China and India are expected to be the growth frontiers for waterproofing membranes. In 2015, the water & waste management segment accounted for the second largest market share among all applications, regarding value and volume, followed by the bridges and highways segment. The primary application of waterproofing in roofing and walls is expected to retain its largest share of the market; it is estimated to have a relatively moderate growth rate. Besides these, other waterproofing applications are in Marines, subways, dams, tunnels, etc.
Being lightweight in nature, cost-efficient, durable, and environmentally sustainable, waterproofing membranes have always been most an attractive waterproofing solution for various industries. However, new eco-friendly and biodegradable alternatives have surfaced recently, which have been redistributing the market in developed countries. Some of the conventional waterproofing membranes have also proven harmful for the environment and have turned into a major restraint for the industry. However, in the US and Japan where residential renovation is on a rise, waterproofing applications are unlikely to be replaced anytime soon in the future, owing to their enhanced performance, deeper market penetration, and decreased the commercial value.
The global waterproofing membranes market can be segmented by type, raw material, and end-user applications. By type, these membranes are available in the form of cold-liquid applied membranes, hot liquid applied membranes, fully adhered sheets, and loose laid sheets. By the raw material used, they can be segmented into modified bitumen, PVC, TPO, EPDM, HDPE, and LDPE.
Technological innovations in production, strict regulations against the use of asbestos, and a promising real estate market provide a huge opportunity for expansion in this business avenue and new market entrants, as well.
