High Resilience and Flexibility to Fuel Demand for Asphalt Additives

The demand for asphalt additives is increasing massively across the world, as they provide flexibility and ease of operation during construction. Asphalt is highly used in road construction and in paving material. Roads and pavements constructed with the help of asphalt have better durability and resilience. Asphalt helps in completing roads in a shorter period as compared to other material used for construction. In addition, asphalt is also used as a water proofing material in roof construction. Built-up asphalt roofing, bitumen modified membranes, asphalt shingles, and asphalt roll roofing are some of the known asphalt roofing products. The use of asphalt additives is also seen in airport runways, playgrounds, railway beds, bridges, running tracks, barn floors, greenhouse floors, ports, tennis courts, and landfill caps.

Lack of Awareness to Deter Market Growth

Despite many benefits of using asphalt additives, some restraining factors may hinder the asphalt additives market to grow at its full potential. Lack of awareness and instability in supply of asphalt are concerning factors affecting the market growth. Unsteady prices are also considered in deterring the demand for asphalt additives. In addition, availability of substitutes such as bio-asphalt and concrete are also tampering the growth trajectory in the asphalt additives market at the global level. However, increasing construction projects across various regions and preference towards using different and effective products for construction is expected to grow the demand for asphalt additives in coming years.
