Polymer modified bitumen (PMB) is a binder made up of polymeric material dispersed in bitumen that has improved binder performance for a variety of applications. Bitumen and crumb rubber can also be combined to create polymer modified bitumen (PMB). Polymer modified bitumen (PMB) is used to improve the performance of binders on heavily distressed or heavily trafficked pavements, which are frequently exposed to harsh weather conditions. When polymer modified bitumen (PMB) is used in construction, it provides a number of benefits. These include increased elasticity or resilience, cohesion, low temperature susceptibility, and improved tenacity once a bond is formed.
Global Polymer Modified Bitumen Market Dynamics
- Rapid road construction activities
Due to the rise in economic development in developing economies, polymer modified bitumen (PMB) is being used extensively in road construction. This encourages companies to invest more in additive research and development. As a result, the polymer modified bitumen (PMB) market is expected to grow in the near future. Furthermore, the forecast period is expected to see an increase in demand for more durable pavement materials in a variety of applications, boosting demand for polymer modified bitumen (PMB).
- Development of advance products
Companies in the global polymer modified bitumen (PMB) market are constantly looking for new and better ways to manufacture polymer modified bitumen (PMB). The development of new processes for producing polymer modified bitumen (PMB) is expected to propel the market in the near future.
- Various positive characteristics associated with bitumen
Bitumen is commonly used as a chemical additive in a variety of applications such as black paints and solvents. As a chemical additive, bitumen increases the viscosity of waterproofing agents and improves the productivity of coatings and paints. The chemically modified bitumen is also used as a candy coated chemical additive in emulsions. Bitumen helps to provide better adhesion properties when mixed with organic amides and amines, and when mixed with fly ash and lime, it provides smooth and excellent road surfaces. As a result, these factors are expected to boost the polymer modified bitumen market in the coming years.
- Price volatility and rate fluctuations
The drop in oil prices has decreased raw material supply, causing rate volatility and fluctuation in the polymer modified bitumen market, which will limit industry growth during the forecast period. Bitumen is a tough product to handle due to its long supply chain. This feature is being challenged by large suppliers who have begun selling directly to refineries.
- Strict environment regulations
Also, manufacturing processes and strict environmental regulations towards uses obstruct the growth of the polymer modified bitumen market in future years. Petrochemical prices and wavering oil prices during the forecast period can affect the price trends in the polymer modified bitumen market.
