The Dry Mix Mortar Market size is valued at around 298,000 kilotons in 2021, and the market is projected to register a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. However, the construction sector is picking up the pace in the post-pandemic scenario. Thus, this will enhance the market demand for dry mix mortar in the coming years.

Key Highlights

  • Over the short term, simplified mix and apply operation is expected to drive the market’s growth.
  • The emerging trend of green building certifications is likely to act as opportunities in the future.
  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market studied, with the largest consumption from countries like China, India, and Japan.

Key Market Trends

Robust Demand from the Render Segment

  • Rendering contains a higher proportion of cement in its composition and is used to coat the exterior surfaces of buildings. Rendering is used on the outside of buildings to improve the appearance of the exterior façade while also providing waterproofing and fireproofing benefits.
  • Dry mix products provide excellent technical properties to meet the stringent performance requirements that are common in the current construction scenario. Additionally, the use of dry mix mortar products is economical, as they reduce the potential construction problems with the long-term integrity of structures with a simple materials approach.
  • Dry mixed mortar contains the precise blend of materials and only requires the addition of water to produce a suitable render. Dry mix mortar comprises special additives that improve the workability of renders, help them bond to the background, and reduce the risk of cracking. They can also be used for decorative finishes.
  • Render accounts for the highest usage of dry-mix mortar across the world. The usage of dry-mix mortar in rendering applications is preferred in the North America

China to Dominate the Market in the Asia-Pacific Region

  • The country has the largest construction market in the world, encompassing 20% of all construction investments globally. China is expected to spend nearly USD 13 trillion on buildings by 2030, creating a positive market outlook for construction materials such as dry mix mortar.
  • The increased focus on affordable housing by both the public and the private sector may drive growth in the residential construction sector, which is likely to drive the market demand.
  • China has been majorly driven by the ample developments in the residential and commercial construction sectors and supported by the growing economy. In China, the housing authorities of Hong Kong launched several measures to push-start the construction of low-cost housing. The officials aim to provide 301,000 public housing units by 2030.
  • Similarly, China is also likely to witness the construction of 7,000 more shopping centers, which are estimated to be opened by 2025. Such growth in the construction industry is likely to propel market demand.
  • However, the economy looks shaky as the country is dealing with Evergrande crisis (the company has USD 300 billion of liabilities alone as of June 2021) and a full-fledged Chinese financial crisis and a recession can’t be ruled out.
