Global Waterproofing Membrane Market - 2019-2026
A waterproofing membrane is a thin layer of water-tight material that is laid over a surface. This layer is continuous and does not allow water to pass through it. Waterproofing is a term that membrane manufacturers use loosely to describe any product that can retard the passage of water. The membranes may be in sheet form or liquid-applied. They are used above ground on spandrels and façades; on water-containment structures, including planters; under mechanical-room and shower-room floors; in cavity walls; under green vegetative roofs; and on plazas over occupied spaces. Below ground, they are used over earth-covered suspended slabs, on foundations, and under pressure slabs on grade.
The global waterproofing membrane market size was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.2 % during the forecast period.
