Global Bitumen Market, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2024 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Bitumen Market, By Product Grade (Paving Grade, Industrial & Polymer Modified), By Application (Paving, Roofing & Others), By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Bitumen Market was valued at over $ 44.7 billion in 2018 and is poised to grow at CAGR of over 6% during forecast period

Growth of the market is led by increasing investments by the governments of different economies for the maintenance & repair and construction of roads. Roads made with bitumen have high viscosity, stickiness and water resistance, which is stimulating its adoption for road construction.

Additionally, hydrocarbon mixture due to its water proofing properties, also finds application in water tank manufacturing, tennis courts, runways and barn floors, among others. However, release of toxic gases due to the heating of bitumen and cement as an alternative for bitumen for the construction, is impeding the growth of the market.

The Global Bitumen Market can be segmented based on product grade, application and region. In terms of product grade, the market can be segmented into paving, industrial and polymer modified. Of all, paving product grade dominates the Global Bitumen Market and the trend is likely to maintain its dominance during forecast period as well.

However, polymer modified segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR during forecast period due to its growing usage in industrial applications and road surfacing. Addition of polymers to the bitumen enhances the resistance to deformation of the mixture, which is further anticipated to promote the growth of this segment over the coming years.

Regionally, the market for bitumen is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, South America and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific dominates the market on account of rising demand for expanding land connectivity in economies such as China, India, Japan, among others. Moreover, increasing population, high standard of living and high vehicle ownership in the region, which is resulting in surge in traffic, is leading to the construction of new flyovers and roads, thereby further driving the demand for bitumen in the region.

Major companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products in order to stay competitive in the market. Other competitive strategies include mergers & acquisitions and new product developments.
