Key Market Trends
Increasing Demand for Asphalt Pavement
Asphalt concrete is commonly used to surface roads, parking lots, airports, as well as dams. Owing to the advancements in the construction industry, polymers are added to modify viscoelastic behavior of the asphalt cement.
Polymer modified hot mix asphalt cement is being used majorly in the growing road network. The primary benefit of using these high-performance asphalts is improved rutting resistance, with less thermal (cold-temperature) cracking and overall improved mixture durability being the secondary benefits.
Additionally, some modified binders provide improved stripping (moisture damage) resistance. Elastomers (rubbers or elastics) and plastomers (plastics) are the most commonly used types. Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) are frequently used elastomers.
International Energy Agency’s (IEA) analysis of infrastructure requirements, stated that, since 2000, global roadway network length increased by approximately 12 million lane‐km.
China and India accounted for more than half of the paved lane additions, globally. Paved lane‐kilometer accounted for 53% of the total global road lane‐kilometer in the recent past. The fraction of paved roads are expected to increase in the coming years, thereby, increasing the demand for polymer concrete in asphalt pavement applications, driven by the increasing road traffic. It is expected that the global road traffic activity will be more than double, to nearly 43 trillion annual vehicle kilometers, by 2050.
Moreover, global road capital construction, reconstruction, and operations and maintenance costs for 2050, are by far the largest infrastructure spending, with annual capital costs mounting up to 1.1 trillion USD over the next 20 years, as developing countries are aiming to ramp up roadway construction to meet the travel demand.
Annual global reconstruction of roads is estimated to increase from 400 USD billion to 700 USD billion, by 2050. Owing to the aforementioned trends, the demand for polymer concrete is expected to increase, during the forecast period for asphalt pavements.
