[170+ Pages Research Report] Waterproofing Chemicals market to surpass USD 78.57 billion by 2030 from USD 27.17 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 11.20% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.

Product Overview

A waterproofing chemical is a synthetic chemical that prevents water from penetrating and flowing through a building. Apart from electrical, metal and other structural risks, excessive water penetration in buildings can reduce their life span and cause unintended harm to the structure. It's usually combined with a construction application or put to the outside of a foundation system. Waterproofing provides substantial benefits to a building or a substrate, such as cheaper construction maintenance costs, a more durable structure, and protection from harsh weather conditions. Waterproofing chemicals are commonly used to protect buildings from water seepage, which may shorten a structure's lifespan and pose electrical, metal, and health risks. When applied to the exterior of a building, waterproofing chemicals assist to enhance the durability of infrastructure as well as the shelf life of concrete structures. Furthermore, these compounds can assist in the reduction of building maintenance costs.

Market Highlights

Waterproofing Chemicals Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 11.20% in 2030

Waterproofing Chemicals Market to surpass USD 78.57 billion by 2030 from USD 27.17 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 11.20% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30. One of the main reasons driving the market's growth is the increasing demand from a variety of end-use sectors, including as residential and commercial building construction, landfills, and tunnels. In addition, rising awareness of the necessity of waterproofing materials in building in emerging countries is expected to drive up demand.

Recent highlights in the Waterproofing Chemicals market

  • In January 2019, The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) granted Procsa, a Mexican company, a local currency financing programme worth up to 150 million Mexican pesos ($7.8 million) to finance land acquisition, development, and commercialization of housing for low and middle-income families in the country which is driving waterproofing chemicals market growth.

Waterproofing Chemicals Market: Segments

Roofs and walls segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Waterproofing Chemicals Market is segmented by Application into Roofing & walls, Floors & basements, Waste & water management, Tunnel liners, and Others. In 2019, the roofs and walls segment dominated the Waterproofing Chemicals, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. For years, leakage in buildings, particularly roofs and walls, has been a serious problem across the world. Water ponding, or the stagnation of water caused by rain on roofs and walls, causes concrete components to deteriorate, resulting in a ruined roof, which might lead to the collapse of the entire structure. As a result, waterproofing chemicals are widely used in roofs and walls to minimize such dangers. Waterproofing chemicals provide a number of advantages, including improved fire and wind resistance, extremely high tensile strength, and waterproofing properties.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Waterproofing Chemicals Market is segmented by Product into Bitumen, Elastomers, PVC, TPO, EPDM. In 2019, the Waterproofing Chemicals were dominated by Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO), which is extremely resistant to moisture and flame and has exceptional flexibility. TPO membranes are completely recyclable and contain no harmful or dangerous components. Due to a variety of standout characteristics, such as durability in harsh weather and temperature extremes, energy efficiency, flame resistance, water repellants, heat, and solar reflectance, and others, the Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) roofing solution is also expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics


Booming construction industry in developing nations

Residential building, bridge construction, road paving, and large-scale re-roofing works are all part of the high-risk construction sector, which covers everything from infrastructure development to renovation. The rise in construction activities is driving up demand for waterproofing chemicals in developing nations like China, India, and Japan.


Fluctuating raw materials prices

The price of raw materials and their availability are important elements that influence the pricing of manufactured goods. The most significant restraint facing the global waterproofing chemicals market is the shifting price trends of raw materials, which fluctuate owing to variable energy costs, as most raw materials are petroleum-based.
