Waterproofing membrane Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Various Infrastructural Developments
Infrastructure is the means by which low- and middle-income countries are transformed into emerging or developing ones. Increased infrastructure spending creates a large demand for private and public sector infrastructure developments such as power plants, electricity grids, water supply and treatment plants, roads, railways, airports, bridges, telecommunications networks, schools, and hospitals. The building and construction industries necessitate strong, high-performance materials, lightweight, high-performance, long-lasting, and versatile. Building materials' quality and performance must be extremely consistent; as a result, the demand for waterproofing membranes for infrastructure development is increasing. China, Brazil, India, Southeast Asia, Russia, and other developing economies have enormous potential for developing and improving infrastructure. Waterproofing membrane consumption is expected to rise as these membranes play an important role in improving the overall quality and durability of infrastructure.
Furthermore, the surge in the demand for cost-effective and efficient waterproofing membranes will further propel the growth rate of waterproofing membrane market. Additionally, the growing demand for waterproofing membranes is due to the economic development and the increasing urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies, which will also drive market value growth. The expansion of the automotive industry and the increase in defense budgets are other market growth determinants projected to bolster the market's growth.
- Increased Awareness Regarding Water Disasters and Investments
Furthermore, the rise in the consciousness concern the potential water disasters supporting the application of water management programs further enhance the applications of product, extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the increasing investments to build infrastructure will further expand the future growth of the waterproofing membrane market.
- Impact on Health and Environment
Using waterproofing chemicals or membranes endangers the environment and human health. When used in spray form, waterproofing membranes can be hazardous to the user as well as nearby workers. These chemicals may contain fluorinated compounds, which can cause chemical pneumonitis, lung trauma, and other respiratory problems if they enter the respiratory system. Workers may also be exposed to volatile fumes when applying bitumen-based membranes. Long-term exposure to these fumes can cause health problems such as nasal irritation and bronchitis. The presence of solvents, diluents, and other chemicals in waterproofing membranes also harms the environment by emitting toxic fumes and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. As a result, these factors are estimated to hamper the market's overall growth.
- Volatility in Raw Material Prices
The raw materials used to make waterproofing membranes are primarily derived from crude oil. PVC, PU, acrylic, and bitumen-based waterproofing membranes are all derived from petroleum. Crude oil is an important source of energy, accounting for 27.3 percent of global primary energy consumption. Crude oil prices are on the mend, having settled in the USD 55-60 per barrel range in 2017. However, due to the current pandemic, almost all countries have prohibited both domestic and international travel. This has resulted in a significant decrease in transportation fuel demand, impacting crude oil prices. However, oil prices are expected to rise as a result of renewed Chinese demand. The fluctuating crude oil prices are estimated to challenge the waterproofing membrane market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Waterproofing Membrane Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the waterproofing membrane market. The construction industry has suffered as a result of various country lockdowns and logistical constraints. Supply chain disruptions, workforce unavailability, logistical constraints, limited component availability, demand drop, low company liquidity, and manufacturing shutdown due to lockdown in various countries have all harmed the industry. During this period of crisis, raw material suppliers and other related businesses are being forced to rethink their strategies in order to cater to this industry. As a result of the pandemic, residential and commercial construction has come to a halt. During this crisis period, demand for waterproofing membranes is expected to be low to medium. Major issues include order shipment delays, supply chain constraints, manpower and equipment shortages, and material shortages. As a result, the market was negatively impacted due to the pandemic.
On the flip side, following the end of the crisis, the market is expected to recover, and demand for waterproofing membranes is expected to rise. The pandemic has increased the demand for construction activities in the healthcare sector. A surge in demand for new hospitals and care facilities has given the construction industry some stability, propelling the waterproofing membranes market.
