Market Definition

Asphalt is a black-colored and semi-solid binding material obtained from petroleum distillation residue. Asphalt is manufactured at an average temperature of 150 to 180°C and is highly durable and crack-resistant. It is primarily used in constructing roads, parking areas and driveways as it binds crushed stone and aggregates into the firm and concrete surfaces such as roads and pavements. Smoothly laid asphalt helps minimize fuel consumption and emissions in vehicles and adds to safety by providing a better grip on the wheels.

Market Dynamics of the Saudi Arabia Asphalt Market

  • Rising demand for recycled asphalt

Asphalt is recyclable. It is among the most recycled products used in the construction industry. The recycled asphalt mix is also stronger, more durable and rut-resistant. Thus, recycled product offers superior performance.

Recycled asphalt is a reprocessed asphalt that contains asphalt and aggregates. The process of asphalt recycling involves milling and resizing the asphalt pavements. The asphalt layer is crushed and pulled from the existing surface, such as roads or highways. Asphalt milling is done, followed by pulverization and stabilization. The pulverization of the asphalt is done to blend the asphalt layer into sub-layers. Stabilization involves mixing tar, binding agents or other materials, additives and waterproofing materials with crushed asphalt.

  • Increased government and private sector expenditure in the development of road construction and infrastructure

The rapid expansion of the Saudi Arabia asphalt market is predominantly due to the rapid expansion of the construction sector across the country. There is a growing demand from the residential and commercial sectors and rising knowledge of various materials, including asphalt. Rising urbanization, increasing smart cities, buildings and other urban construction projects, along with the expanding construction sectors, are major driving factors for the growth of the Saudi Arabia asphalt market.

  • Asphalt as an alternative to the conventionally used concrete in the construction industry

Asphalt can be used as a choice material and a highly preferred alternative to concrete in the construction industry owing to its various properties. Asphalt has flexural strength and can handle various bends and contortions before it starts to crack or break. This is one of the reasons why it is a sought-after material for projects that need material like it. Concrete does not have this same strength, which puts asphalt in the lead when comparing these two materials.

  • In December 2021, Saudi Aramco announced that the domestic prices for diesel and asphalt producers would be reviewed annually in accordance with the governance procedures for adjusting the prices of energy and water products
  • In 2020, in Saudi Arabia, the average bitumen and asphalt export price was USD 553 per tonne 2020, which increased by 4.5% against the year 2019

Restraints/Challenges

  • Volatility in the prices and supply of asphalt due to dependence upon petrochemical

The asphalt market suffers a lot from factors such as the volatility of energy and raw material prices and the fluctuating economy of the region. This factor greatly slows down the market's rate of expansion. There is significant volatility in the prices of asphalt as it is a petrochemical product and fluctuations in the price of petroleum are reflected in the price of asphalt. Fluctuating petrochemical prices result in the inconsistent supply of asphalt, affecting construction projects undertaken by governments and road contractors, as it is a primary raw material used in the construction of road pavements and highways. Moreover, the asphalt additives are directly related to the asphalt market. Therefore, volatility in the prices and supply of asphalt additives also affects the market. This has also forced key players operating in the market to make changes in their asphalt products constantly.

Saudi Arabia Asphalt Market

  • Heavy cost of machinery such as asphalt pavers

Asphalt pavers are machines used or distributed and lay on surfaces such as bridges, highways and roads. These machines are also called asphalt finishers. The purchase, reuse and rental of asphalt pavers is a major restraint in the Saudi Arabia asphalt market as they are very expensive and their maintenance also costs high to the users.

Moreover, owning and starting an asphalt plant is another major task and understanding the operating cost related to the same is another. This is because the very basic asphalt mix plant can start from as low a price as USD 45,000. It can go up to USD 2-3 million. The price highly depends on the capacity of the asphalt plant and the type of equipment used. The mobility factor and the accessories that can be added to the plant also affect the cost. There are two types of asphalt plants, continuous type and batch type. The batch type plant has more functions. It is more complicated than a drum plant and hence costlier to own and operate.

COVID-19 had a Minimal Impact on Saudi Arabia Asphalt Market

COVID-19 impacted various manufacturing industries in the year 2020-2021 as it led to the closure of workplaces, disruption of supply chains and restrictions on transportation. Due to the lockdown, the asphalt market has experienced a significant impact on the import and export of asphalt. The growing demand for consumer products will increase the growth of the Saudi Arabia asphalt market.

Recent Development

  • In April 2016, Saudi Arabian Oil Co. awarded an EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contract to Canada-based SNC-Lavalin for the asphalt production expansion project at the Ras Tanura refinery. This contract will help the company to expand its facilities worldwide
