Construction Elastomers Market by Type (Thermoset and Thermoplastic), Chemistry (Styrene block copolymers, TPU, SBR, EPDM, Natural Rubber, IIR, ACM), Application (Residential, Non-residential, and Civil Engineering), and Region - Global Forecast to 2026
The global construction elastomers market size was USD 5.1 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 6.7 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.8% between 2021 and 2026. Elastomers are natural or synthetic polymers having elastic properties. These materials are made of polymers, which are joined by chemical bonds, acquiring a final slightly crosslinked structure. Elastomers that are used for construction applications are known as construction elastomers. Construction elastomers provide advantages of both plastics and rubber, and hence the new form created by their combination is adaptable in many applications. The high impact and tear strength of construction elastomers have increased their demand in the building & construction industries. Thermoplastic type of construction elastomers are recyclable, environment-friendly, and safe to use in the indoor residential applications.
“Residential: the fastest-growing application of construction elastomers market.”
Residential is the largest application in the construction elastomers market. Construction elastomers are used in insulations, roofing sheets & window profiles gaskets, door handle seal, and adhesives in residential construction applications. This segment account for about 50% market share in terms of value in 2020. The sector was impacted a slow growth due to global economic slowdown. However, the segment is expected to recover in the forecast period. Moreover, focus towards sustainable and earthquake proof constructions will provide new opportunities for construction elastomers manufacturer.
“APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for construction elastomers.”
APAC accounted for the largest share in terms of volume and value of the construction elastomers market in 2020, followed by North America and Europe. The use of construction elastomers is expected to witness the highest growth in the APAC region during the forecast period. The market in this region is driven by the recovery of the construction sector in China, India, and Southeast Asian countries. Global elastomers manufacturers are investing in APAC countries in establish their production plants to enhance their market presence in the region. Indian & China are the significant markets for construction and the largest consumers of construction elastomers in the world. The focus towards the development of earthquake proof construction to reduce natural damage will further enhance the demand of construction elastomers during the forecast period.
“Construction elastomers market slow down its growth in 2020.”
The construction elastomers market in 2020 experienced slow growth in terms of volume, compared to 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The construction industry is a significant consumer of construction elastomers. The effect of COVID-19 on the construction industry led to declining sales and the layoff of employees. The projects was halted due to disruption in the supply chain. With the declining production, the demand for construction elastomers also decreased.
