Premixed Grout Market: Overview
A grout can be defined as a material used to fill the joints between tiles. It is a mortar or paste used for filling crevices, especially the gaps between floor or wall tiles. It is a hard material that can lock the tiles together and form a monolithic floor or wall covering. It is also used to enhance decorative appeal of a wall or tile. This is achieved by varying the width of the joints between the tiles by using colored and textured grouting materials.
Premixed Grout Market: Trends & Developments
Types of grouts include single-component, cement-based, epoxy, and premixed. Cement-based grouts are commonly employed, as these are based on Portland cement. Epoxy grouts are designed to be used in harsh environments such as high temperature or cold climatesSingle-component grouts are the latest technology in grouts.
Premix grouts are based on polymer latex. These take longer time to cure than that of cement-based grouts; however, premixed grouts have more advantages than other types of grouts. For example, these offer better stain resistance, high durability, broad color selection, mold and mildew resistance.
Premix grouts are primarily ready-to-use products and do not require to be mixed with water. These have been developed recently and consist of a mixture of urethane and/or acrylic polymer, water, and fine fillers. These are designed for installers, contractors, and do-it-yourself (DIY) enthusiasts who can save time and effort with its use. The cans or bottles of premix grouts can be resealed and used for later jobs.
Premixed Grout Market: Drivers & Restraints
Growth in the construction repairs industries is a primary driver of the premixed grout market. Premixed grouts are used primarily for repairs of interiors and exteriors of residential, commercial, and industrial facilities. Therefore, the construction industry is anticipated to create opportunities in the premixed grout market. If the number of new construction or remodeling of existing construction increases in a certain region or country, then the premixed grouts market will also expand in that location. Substitutes of premixed grouts used in construction repairs include compounds, coatings, and membranes. Availability of these substitutes is expected to hinder the global premixed grout market.
Premixed Grout Market: Key Segments
The global premixed grout market can be segmented by type, application, and region. In terms of type, the market can be segregated into polymer resin-based premixed grouts and urethane-based premixed grouts. There exist wide variations in the characteristics and functional properties of premixed grouts depending upon their type.
Based on application, the premixed grout market can be bifurcated into indoor and outdoor. Premixed grouts are most commonly used to repair or enhance the aesthetics of tiles. Some of the common places where tiles are used include washrooms, kitchens, balconies, and outdoors walls.
Premixed Grout Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of region, the global premixed grout market can be divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The market is expected to expand at a faster rate in developing regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America due to high rate of construction in these regions. The market in North America and Europe is likely to expand at a sluggish pace and is likely to be driven primarily by the rise in remodeling of existing structures in these regions.
