Asphalt additives are the specialty chemicals that are added to impart additional benefits such as reduction in stripping, raveling, cracking, costs, and deformations. They are specifically added during construction of roads, sidewalks, airports, and parking lots. The market for asphalt additives has grown tremendously in the recent past due to increase in government investment for the infrastructural development coupled with the rise in ownership of automobiles globally.
Factors that drive the growth of the global asphalt additives market are increase in urbanization, rise in demand of asphalt from construction industry, and growth in conformity with latest manufacturing standards. In addition, increase in demand for asphalt additives from the emerging economies as well as growth in awareness about energy conservation and sustainable infrastructure provide opportunities to the asphalt additives manufactures. However, low consumer awareness and change in regulatory environment are expected to hamper the market growth.
PAC is expected to maintain its dominant position throughout the analysis period, due to the remarkable properties such as enhancement of asphalt ability to combat fatigue & cracks, temperature susceptibility, and increment in the adhesion & cohesion properties. PAC is added to the asphalt immediately before heating to yield maximum benefit.
Road construction segment dominated with more than 50% share, in terms of volume, in 2015. In response to the perennial urbanization, efficient roads are currently in high demand across the globe. Residential construction companies are inclined towards using asphalt roofs to provide durability, algae resistance, fire resistance, and cost-effectiveness.
