Such chemicals are increasingly used to enhance the longevity of buildings while decreasing their maintenance and repair costs, which is anticipated to fuel the market growth in the coming years.
Repair and rehabilitation chemicals are used to reinstate distressed and defective concrete, due to which they are extensively used to ensure the structural integrity of old buildings. Meanwhile, adhesives and sealants find applications in construction activities like sealing, waterproofing, bonding, gap filling, adhering, glazing, window installations, and fire protection, among others. Hence, the growing demand for such chemicals in both new construction and renovation activities is likely to drive the Latin America construction chemicals market expansion.
The residential construction sector in Latin America is growing robustly due to the rising housing demand of the increasing population. While the global construction chemicals market witnessed a slowdown due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments across the nations took initiatives to combat the effect of the crisis.
The governments in Latin America are also initiating residential construction activities to provide affordable housing for the population, thereby propelling the demand for construction chemicals. Furthermore, with the inflating disposable incomes of consumers, residential renovation activities are also surging, fuelling the growth of the Latin America construction chemicals market.
Non-residential construction in Latin America is expanding due to the introduction of numerous favourable government initiatives to develop railway, transportation, port, and road infrastructure.
The growing construction of solar and wind plants owing to the increasing focus on sustainable infrastructure development is likely to provide further impetus to the Latin America construction chemicals market. For instance, in July 2022, Scatec, along with its partners, began the construction of the Mendubim solar project of 531MW in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil.
Mexico holds a significant share of the Latin America construction chemicals market due to the growing construction activities and the increasing housing demands in the country.
