March 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Waterproofing Membranes Market Growth & Trends

The global waterproofing membranes market size is expected to reach USD 37.18 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2021 to 2028. The growing advancement in infrastructure and construction activities, coupled with a rise in demand for wastewater and water management, is expected to drive the market.

Adoption of wastewater techniques for water conservation and reuse is increasing owing to the rising demand for portable water resources across the globe. In addition, increasing government support to promote and adopt a wide array of waste management and water treatment initiatives is expected to boost the demand for the product during the forecast period.

Biomembranes are expected to witness a high adoption trend in the coming future owing to the increasing product demand in green building construction. In addition, government support to replace old buildings with new ones is opening new growth avenues for the construction industry, in turn, adding growth to the overall market.

The market is highly dependent upon the dynamics of the raw material supply chain. Although all types of products including cementitious, bituminous, and polyurethane are used for manufacturing waterproofing membranes, cementitious liquid applied membrane and bituminous sheet membranes are the most commonly used waterproofing membranes in the market.

The industry exhibits several mature players controlling a significant market share. However, increasing competition from a large number of small and local manufacturers from the Asia Pacific region is expected to boost the market competition. The market players put high stress on using sustainable raw materials to ensure an environmentally friendly image to their clients.
