Waterproofing prevents structures from water damage by creating an impervious barrier preventing water from entering the structure. It protects against structural damage by preventing chemical, water and other harmful external elements from entering integral surfaces like roofs, walls, and foundations among other parts. Thus, waterproofing ensures the durability and longevity of a building or any other structure and reduces the repair and renovation costs. Waterproofing finds extensive application in the roofs and balconies segments as they are exposed to extreme weather conditions and other detrimental elements.
The waterproofing market is aided by a growing construction industry globally which is projected to see an 85% increase by 2026 reaching a value of USD 15.5 trillion. With a growing awareness amongst property owners, engineers and architects about the cost savings and increased efficiency as a result of waterproofing, there has been a rise in the demand for waterproofing in the market. Additionally, waterproofing also helps in increasing a building’s sustainability standards that are monitored by various agencies.
Liquid waterproofing membranes were the leading waterproofing option in 2016 due to their efficiency, ease of application and lower cost. The liquid membranes market will be further propelled by the innovations taking place within this segment. Bituminous membranes are also seeing a rising demand as they are sturdy, durable and have a high tensile strength. In December of 2018, Sika, one of the major players in the waterproofing market, reached an argument to acquire Arcon Membrane Srl, a key waterproofing and roofing manufacturer in Romania. This acquisition will not just increase Sika’s presence in Romania, but will also add to its expanding bituminous membranes portfolio.
The Asia Pacific region currently dominates the waterproofing market driven by rising demand in the construction sector as well as in the wastewater management industry. Growing urbanisation and the rising industrialisation have made India and China major players in the region. The waterproofing market is buoyed by the infrastructural growth in these countries. In India, the Make in India scheme has bolstered the construction industry with more than USD 650 billion expected to be spent on urban infrastructure over the next two decades.
