Region-wise Analysis

Will North America Provide a Lucrative Setting for the Construction Polymer Market?

Burgeoning Construction Industry to Encourage Construction Polymer Adopton

As per FMI analysis, in the coming years, North America is projected to turn out lucrative for the overall construction polymer market, accounting for 16.1% revenue in 2022. 

According to Associated General Contractors of America, construction is a major contributor to the U.S. economy. The industry has more than 733,000 employers with over 7 million employees and creates nearly $1.4 trillion worth of structures each year.

The growth is also a result of the local players largely dominating the construction polymer market and they are competing amongst each other. Increasing investments by major market players and research institutes for innovations in the market space are key growth drivers.

Category-wise Analysis

Which Application Dominates the Construction Polymer Market?

Wall Construction and Insulation and sliding to be Primary Application Areas

On the basis of applications, the study has forecasted that construction polymers will be widely used in building high-tech walls. Compatibility of construction polymers with advanced engineering techniques has driven their use in construction of walls. By 2026, nearly US$ 50 Mn worth of construction polymers will be used in wall applications across the globe. Insulation and sliding applications, on the other hand, will register fastest revenue growth at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period.

Which Construction Activity Will Take the Lead in the Market?

Polymers for New Construction Activity to Maintain its Lead

With respect to the type of construction activity, construction polymers are less likely to be used for renovation as they are required to be integrated with the core construction materials for high performance. By 2026, more than 3/5th of revenues procured in the global construction polymers market will be accounted by new construction activities.

Which End-User Accounts for Highest Revenue Share?

Commercial and Housing Real Estate Construction to Top the Charts

With high profit margins, commercial real estate sector and housing (residential) real estate sector will remain lucrative for manufacturers of construction polymers. Collectively, the end-use of construction polymer in these two sectors will account for more than 65% of the global market revenues throughout the forecast period.

The report further projects that facility infrastructure sector and utility infrastructure sector will register fastest end-use of construction polymer in the global market. Increasing investments of governments as well as private sector players in the facility and utility infrastructure sectors will factor this surging revenue growth throughout the forecast period.

Which Polymer Types are projected to Remain in Great Demand?

High Flexibility and Enhanced Resistance to Heighten PVC Construction Polymer Uptake

According to FMI, polyvinylchloride polymers are expected to represent highest revenue share in the global construction polymer market. In 2021, nearly US$ 28 Mn worth of PVC polymers were sold across the global construction polymer market.

The study reveals that flexibility of PVC polymers, coupled with their competent advantages with respect to flame resistance, frictional co-efficiency, safety and design versatility, will continue to drive their demand in the near future of the global construction polymer market.

Competitive Landscape

The global construction polymer market is on a rise owing to the manufacturers who are investing in the research & development of new valves as per changing industry standards across multiple industry verticals. 

For instance, 

  • In June 2021, H.B. Fuller announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Jubilant Agri and Consumer Products Limited (JACPL), a 100% subsidiary of Jubilant Industries Limited, to address the growing demand for adhesive applications in the B2B woodworking segment.
  • In November 2021, Evonik announced the scaling-up trials of its new process, which has been further strengthened by its partnership with The Vita Group, a leading provider of value-added and differentiated flexible PU foam products. The Vita Group has trailed the recycled polyols from Evonik's hydrolysis process in several of its flexible foam applications. Evonik’s solution will contribute to the global flexible PU industry’s sustainability expectations of reducing waste and increasing the use of renewable raw materials in the production of its products.
