Modified Bitumen Market by Modifier Type (SBS, APP, Crumb Rubber, Natural Rubber), Application Method (Hot Asphalt, Cold Asphalt, Torch-Applied), End-Use Industry (Road Construction, Building Construction), and Region - Global Forecast to 2021
The modified bitumen market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period
The global modified bitumen market is projected to reach USD 19.29 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of the market is attributed to the growing construction industry in emerging nations, cost-effectiveness of modified bitumen, and increasing demand for modified bitumen in regions such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Modified bitumen is largely used in road construction. In addition, rising awareness about the benefits of modified bitumen is also fueling the demand.
Road Construction represents the bulk of the demand for modified bitumen
Modified bitumen has been widely used for road construction. Modified bitumen increases the lifetime, flexibility, and strength of the road which acts as a major driver for the use of modified bitumen. Modified bitumen are used for road construction which includes bridges & flyovers, tunnel liners, and airport runways highways.
The SBS segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR
during the forecast period
Modified bitumen is produced by blending normal bitumen with suitable polymers and other additives to improve the inherent properties of bitumen. The major modifiers used are atactic polypropylene (APP), styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS), crumb rubber, and natural rubber. SBS is the most widely used modifier. SBS modified bitumen can deal with the stress created by temperature fluctuation, normal expansion and contraction. These factors acts as a major driver for the use of SBS.
“Asia-Pacific market estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
Asia-Pacific is the largest market for modified bitumen, in terms of volume, followed by Europe and North America. China, the U.S., Germany, Canada, and Mexico are the largest consumers of modified bitumen. End-use industries such as road construction and building construction, represent the bulk of the demand for modified bitumen in Asia-Pacific.
