Global Waterproofing Chemicals Market - Segmented by Product Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

The waterproofing chemicals market is expected to be grow at a rate of 5.7% during the forecast period (2018 to 2023), primarily driven by the increasing demand for building construction in Asia-Pacific. The increase in building renovation and remodeling activities in Europe is also likely to stimulate the market growth during the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Building Renovation in Europe Driving the Market
The leakage of roof is critical for buildings. It can reach the foundation of the building and damage it, which requires heavy repair work. It eventually starts spoiling the wall paint and plaster. Much of the building block in Europe is in need of renovation as more than 40% of the buildings were built before 1960 and 90% before 1990. The majority of these buildings is likely to be standing in 2050 after renovation. Among around 210 million buildings in the EU, up to 10 million buildings could be in need of renovation. Buildings renovation accounts for 57% of the total construction market in Europe, with residential buildings accounting for around 65% of the renovation market. With the rise in prices of houses increasing the demand for repairing and remodeling houses, a considerable increase in the demand for waterproofing chemicals especially for roofing applications is expected in the region in the coming years.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Membranes is Expected to Grow at a High Rate
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a polypropylene-based plastic and ethylene/propylene rubber material. By blending plastic and rubber, TPO waterproofing membrane is manufactured. It has various advantages such as heat weldability, easy to repair, flexibility, and white color (due to which almost 90% of the sun rays are reflected). It has become popular because of its ability to resist the ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, ozone and environmental chemicals. Owing to all these advantages, these waterproofing membranes are the most commonly used in the roofing of houses in the North America region. With the increasing construction of houses in countries such as the United States, Canada, and Mexico, the demand for waterproofing chemicals is increasing significantly.

Infrastructure and Building Construction Driving the Asia-Pacific Market
Asia-Pacific is one of the major market for waterproofing chemicals and is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. The rise in infrastructure and construction development activities due to the rapid industrialization and urbanization are increasing the demand for residential and commercial buildings in this region. This region is also expected to register the highest CAGR owing to significant rise in building and construction activities and the rising number of smart city projects in various countries, including India, and Singapore. For instance, the Indian government approved smart city projects in 90 cities. The projects are likely to be completed by 2020.

Notable Developments
In September 2017, BASF completed the acquisition of GRUPO THERMOTEK, a leading waterproofing systems supplier in Mexico. Through this acquisition, BASF’s Construction Chemicals division strengthened its channels to market and builds on its portfolio of brands for construction sector.

Major Players: BASF SE, SIKA AG, Forsoc Inc., and Pidilite, among others.
