Latin America Construction Industry, Growing at a CAGR of 9.2% between 2020-2025, to Aid Latin America Waterproofing Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Latin America Waterproofing Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025’, the Latin America waterproofing market is projected to grow in the forecast period of 2020-2025, propelled by the growing construction market. The global construction market is expected to increase by 85% to reach a value of USD 15.5 trillion by 2025.

Waterproofing forms an impermeable barrier against water, chemical and other harmful elements that can cause structural damage to buildings and other infrastructure. They are extensively used to waterproof various infrastructure segments like roofs, parking decks, bridges, highways and tunnel liners, among others. It protects the integral parts of these elements which are most susceptible to damage. Liquid waterproofing membranes are widely preferred due to being a highly effective and cost-efficient solution.

The Latin America waterproofing market is led by the growth in the infrastructure and construction sector in the region aided by various government schemes. With the population expected to increase in the coming years, greater investments in infrastructure by both public and private players and rising urbanisation, new construction projects are planned to meet the needs of the people.

Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina are the major waterproofing markets in the region. In Colombia, the construction sector is aided not just by government investments but also by various public-private partnerships on infrastructure projects. The country is supposed to see infrastructure investments up to USD 25 billion by 2025. In 2016, Argentina’s President Mr. Mauricio Macri announced plans for the development of infrastructure and social housing which has been driving the infrastructure and construction market in the region, while also providing an impetus to the waterproofing market in the region.
