NEW YORK, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Waterproofing chemicals are chemicals intended for protection of buildings and infrastructure against water penetration. They protect from risk such as electrical, metal and health hazards, which occur due to water penetration into the structure-constructed product. Waterproofing chemicals have high durability, which increases the life of the constructed structure and lowers maintenance costs. Majorly used waterproofing chemicals are polyurethane, elastomeric coatings, expanded polyethylene, polysulphide sealants, acrylic polymer and many others. These waterproofing chemicals are applicable in liquid, solid, and slurry form.
Based on products, global waterproofing chemicals market is segmented as bitumen, polymers, and others. Bitumen is the major product segment due to its properties such as high viscosity and stickiness. In addition, waterproofing chemicals can be distinguished as liquid applied systems and sheet membranes. The global waterproofing chemicals market is segmented based on applications such as roofing, walls, building structures, landfills & tunnels and others. Niche applications include bitumen bonding, expansion joints, subsoil waterproofing, geomembranes, water management and tunnel liners.
Industries like construction, paints and coatings, textile & fabrics, automotive, packaging, aerospace, electronics, etc are the end-users of global waterproofing chemicals market. Construction is the leading end-user owing to rising investments in this industry and high prices of raw materials. Automotive and packaging are the emerging industries for global waterproofing chemicals market. It is witnessing high growth in Asia Pacific region.
Asia Pacific is the leading region in the global waterproofing chemicals market followed by Europe. This growth is experienced due to boom in the emerging market like China, India and Malaysia. 12th Five Year Plan and 'Make in India' initiation has hold China and India to be the leading markets for construction industry. Hence, Asia Pacific has a huge demand for waterproofing chemicals. North America is witnessing slow recovery in this industry from the slowdown. Latin America is also a prominent market owing to rising investments in infrastructures specially Brazil.
