Waterproofing chemicals are referred to as a group of specific synthetic or natural chemical products. Their primary use is to protect the structure from the damage caused by moisture or water. The penetration or percolation of water or moisture can cause severe physical damage to the structure. It can also shorten the life and reduce the durability of the building, which is most likely to cause accidental damage to the edifice. Waterproofing chemicals prevent damage to the electrical, metal, and other integral parts of the building. These chemicals help the structure to retain its integrity and longevity. The product confers numerous beneficial properties, for instance, increasing the life of concrete, wood and decorative paint and coatings. Economically the waterproofing chemicals help to reduce the maintenance cost of the building and offer more efficient and sustainable solution to the problem of leakage.
The global waterproofing chemicals market is projected to expand at a robust CAGR of 9.86% , and is estimated to reach USD 32,915.00 million by the end of 2023. The major factors responsible for healthy growth trajectory of the market are, rapidly increasing demand for the waterproofing chemicals from steadily growing construction activities (especially in developing countries), growing demand from roofing and walls application, the cost-efficiency of the product in longer run and expanding scope of applications in the emerging applications such as landfill and water resource management. However, the sole factor likely to hamper growth of the market during the forecast period is a cost sensitive nature of the market, mainly due to the volatility in the prices of crude oil and price-conscious consumers, especially in emerging economies. Nevertheless, there is a great opportunity for emerging applications such as the landfill and water management sectors. This is anticipated to further boost the growth of the global waterproofing chemicals in the near future.
