The report segments the global waterproofing chemicals market into different types of application. They are:

  • Roofing
  • Building structures

Waterproofing chemicals in roofing

As per the report, roofing was the largest application segment for waterproofing chemicals in 2015. This growth is expected to continue during the forecast period on account of increased investment in infrastructure development. Rapid urbanization coupled with growing disposable income of the middle class is fueling the growth of the construction industry and subsequently, the waterproofing chemicals market.

Technavio’s lead industry analyst, Chandrakumar BJ specializing in research on metals and minerals says, “The global residential roofing market is expected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. New housing projects are showing optimistic growth on account of recovery from a global economic slowdown in the construction industry. Re-roofing activities and repair work will be at their peak during the storm season in North America, thus triggering demand for roofing material.”

Waterproofing chemicals in building structures

Waterproofing chemicals in building structures is the second largest application segment for the waterproofing chemicals market. Leakage in building structures is an important concern in most of the old and new constructions. Besides adequate waterproofing, certain other precautions like the type of terracing required to be provided and details about the waterproofing system for the roof are also needed to be taken at the time of construction to avoid leaky roofs.

Waterproofing chemicals in landfills and tunnels

Chances of water leakage in tunnels are high, especially at the expansion joints, honeycomb areas, and other construction joints. There can be some other dampness as well on the surface, which can result in constant leakage. These leakages may damage equipment and other underground facilities. Thus, the consumption of waterproofing chemicals in landfills and tunnels are increasing considerably, thereby leading to overall market growth.

Waterproofing chemicals in walls

The volume of waterproofing chemicals consumed in walls is estimated to reach about 280 thousand tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of more than 4%. Application of waterproofing coating prevents water and water vapor from permeating through the wall. Most waterproofing chemicals are applied on the exterior of walls, however, these chemicals when added to the concrete wall at the time of construction, work most effectively in preventing water penetration in a building. The waterproofing coatings can also be applied using sheets made of rubber asphaltic membranes that are attached to a polyethylene film.

The top five vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • DOW Chemical
  • Bostik
  • Conpro Chemicals
  • Triton Chemical Manufacturing
  • Pidilite Industries
