Global demand to rise 4.1% annually through 2015

Global consumption of asphalt is forecast to advance 4.1 percent annually from a very weak 2010 base to 119.5 million metric tons in 2015, equivalent to 725 million barrels of primary asphalt. High petroleum prices combined with economic weakness and declining construction activity resulted in a significant drop in consumption in many of the world's most developed asphalt markets over the 2005 to 2010 period. Demand in these markets, including North America, Western Europe and Japan, is expected to rebound through 2015.

North America to be fastest growing market

Gains will be most rapid in North America, where the market for asphalt is expected to rise 6.5 percent per annum to 36.6 million metric tons in 2015. Demand for asphalt in both paving and roofing applications will be driven by the recovering US economy and increasing construction activity in the country. The region is a significant consumer of primary asphalt due to the size of the US and Canadian road networks and the dominant position of asphalt materials in the North American roofing market.

Asia/Pacific region to remain largest market

The massive infrastructure development programs in China and India, two of the world's fastest growing economies, will continue to drive strong growth in the Asia/Pacific region. Since 2005, the region has become the largest market for asphalt. China alone will account for nearly one-fifth of global asphalt demand in 2015. Strong growth in asphalt markets in India and a moderate recovery in demand for asphalt in Japan will also contribute to gains.

Roofing segment to gain market share in China

Paving products accounted for nearly 80 percent of total asphalt demand in 2010. Asphalt is the dominant material in the paving segment, particularly in Western Europe and North America, where it is widely favored over concrete in most road paving applications. In roofing markets, on the other hand, asphalt products face stiff competition from a variety of materials, including concrete and clay tile, metal roofing, elastomeric membranes and fiber cement. While asphalt roofing holds a dominant position in several key markets (the US and Canada, for example), demand in many other markets is limited. Going forward, increasing acceptance of modified bitumen membranes in low-slope roofing and asphalt shingles in steep-slope roofing will boost demand, particularly in China, where asphalt roofing occupies a small but growing share of the large roofing market.

Study coverage

This upcoming industry study, World Asphalt, presents historical demand data (2000, 2005, 2010) and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product, world region and for 28 countries. The study also considers key market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles global industry competitors.
