Market Overview

The Global Waterproofing Admixture Market is projected to register a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

COVID-19 outbreak negatively impacted the market in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic affected the waterproofing admixture market because of disruption in the supply chain. During the pandemic, many factories responsible for raw material production for waterproofing admixture were shut down. However, the market started recovering in 2021 and it is expected to reach its pre covid level during the forecasted period.

  • Over the short term, rapid urbanization in developing countries and rising demand for effective waterproofing solutions are some of the driving factors stimulating the market demand.
  • Already established advanced infrastructure in developed countries and lack of technical knowledge about waterproofing admixture usage, are the factors that are hindering the market's growth.
  • Increasing R&D for new product development in the construction industry is likely to create opportunities for the market in the coming years.
  • The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market and will also witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Scope of the Report

A waterproofing admixture is a water repellent material. It is a form of admixture that blocks the water passage through the hardened concrete. It has properties such as hydrophobic and pore-blocking which can react with other materials in the cement hydration process. The final product resists external water and decreases absorption into the concrete. The waterproofing admixture market is segmented by type, application, and geography. By type, the market is segmented into crystalline, pore-blocking, and other types. By application, the market is segmented into residential, commercial, infrastructure and industrial and institutional. The report also covers the market size and forecasts for the waterproofing market in 15 countries across major regions. For each segment, the market sizing and forecasts have been done on the basis of revenue (USD Million).

Key Market Trends

Increasing Usage in the Residential Construction

The residential sector is likely to serve as the major application in the waterproofing admixture market. Increasing construction of new residential buildings owing to the rise in disposable income of the middle class is expected to drive the waterproofing admixture market.

Superior properties of waterproofing admixture such as reduced maintenance cost and increased durability will boost the market studied. In the residential construction industry waterproofing admixture is used to prevent water penetration in concrete and improve concrete cohesion capacity.

The waterproofing admixture also offers various others benefits such as long-lasting protection, is useful in corrosive environments, and cannot be damaged or torn during the backfill.

According to the United Nations (UN), around 50% of the global population resides in urban cities, which is projected to increase to 68%, by 2050. The pace of economic and demographic growth must be in harmony with the demand for residential construction activities.

Furthermore, by 2030, about 40% of the population worldwide is likely to need housing at the rate of over 96,150 houses per day. Hence, with the growth of the residential sector, the use of waterproofing admixture is likely to increase.

Owing to all these factors, the market for waterproofing admixture is likely to grow globally during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market. In the region, China is the largest economy, in terms of GDP. China and India are among the fastest emerging economies in the world.

The construction industry in Asia-Pacific is expected to become the largest and the fastest-growing industry globally, with over 45% share of global construction spending coming from the region. Construction output in Asia-Pacific is estimated to reach USD 7.4 trillion by 2030, according to an Oxford Economics report.

China dominates the construction industry in the Asia-Pacific region. The Chinese construction industry depicted significant growth over the years. China’s construction market witnessed the slowest growth of just over 1% in 30 years in 2020. In 2020, the construction industry in China was valued at USD 1,049.19 billion. However, major government spending, especially focused on infrastructure has resulted in a rebounding of construction activity in 2021.

India’s construction industry is expected to grow due to increased demand for infrastructure projects and real estate. FDI in the construction sector stood at USD 26.17 billion between April 2000 to December 2021, according to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT). In the fiscal year 2021, infrastructure activities amounted to over 13% share of the total Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflow in the country. Besides, in the union budget 2021, the Indian government announced the allocation of USD 32.02 billion to transport infrastructure.

Owing to the sudden rise in the residential construction and projects related to the Tokyo Olympics 2021, the Japanese construction sector remained positive in terms of short-term growth. Additionally, Increasing investments in public infrastructure, renewable energy infrastructure, and commercial projects, the construction sector in the country is expected to record growth at a moderate pace during the forecasted period.

Due to all such factors, the market for waterproofing admixture in the region is expected to have a steady growth during the forecast period.
