The South America polyurethane injections market is expected to witness a CAGR of ~4.5%, during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023. Argentina dominated the South America polyurethane injections market in 2017.

Growth in Revitalization of Public Infrastructure Projects in South America to Drive the Market

The government in Brazil, Argentina, and Peru is making ‘improving infrastructure in respective countries’ a priority. The President of Peru, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, has taken the initative to turn the country into a “construction camp”. The President of Argentina has launched an infrastructure plan called Plan Belgrano for the country’s poorly connected North area. In Colombia, a treaty has been made to build rural infrastructure, which is a part of the peace agreement between the government and the FARC, a leftist guerrilla group that had been at war with the state since 1964. In most countries of South America, the public sector infrastructure is approaching the end-phase of its life cycle. The maintenance costs have increased far faster than state and local tax revenues allocated for their purposes. In such a scenario, the need for better infrastructure is more than ever. With such initiatives taken by individual governments, the market for polyurethane injections will increase through the forecast period.

Infrastructure Repair - The Dominating End-Use Segment

By end-user, infrastructure repair dominated the South America polyurethane injections market in 2017. Polyurethane Injections are used to fill crack and joints for preventing water infiltration. These injections are also used to strengthen foundation, to raise, re-level, and re-support residential, commercial, and industrial buildings: houses, home units, factories, and warehouses. These are also applied in bridges to increase the bearing capacity of the ground to stabilize them. Though the South American construction market is registering a sluggish growth in recent years, various initiatives taken up the government to repair the public infrastructure, coupled with the limited growth in the residential market is expected to drive the market.

Argentina - the Largest Market amongst Countries

Argentina is one of the largest markets in South America for infrastructure construction. Of late, the government in the country has been focusing on economic development with social inclusion. The construction industry in the country is also starting to expand as tenders for state-funded infrastructure projects grew by almost 200%. Such positive growth is expected the market for polyurethane injections in Argentina through 2023.

Major Players: Sika AG, BASF SE, Huntsman Corporation, and Lafarge SA, amongst others.
