The construction industry has witnessed highest growth rate in past decades. This has enforced the industries to adopt new technologies in construction so as to ensure their position in the global market. Increasing competition and modernizing standards of civil engineering has increased the demands of protective building materials.
Protective building materials are the materials which are added on to enhance the endurance of the structure to survive under various conditions. Protective building materials not only provide extra strength, but also improves the life of the structure. Protective building materials are available in different forms, which can be mixed while construction or can be applied later on.
Protective building materials are generally used to assure resistance against corrosion, fire, radiations, seepage, tremors and physical damages. Protective building materials may involve high grade composite steels, cements and additives, paints, floorings, panels, sheets, liquids and various tapes. In general, composite materials and non-metals are used as protective building materials due to their favorable properties like thermal insulation, hydrophobic nature, flexibility and hardness.
Increasing population and urbanization are expected to boost the construction market. Strong desire to develop more reliable structures that can ensure the safety against natural and artificial disasters can be considered as major driving factors of the protective building materials market.
Reducing construction land is boosting up the construction of skyscrapers which ultimately demands high safety factors in buildings and encourage the protective building materials market. The protective building materials market is also widely dependent on the topology and geographical locations of the construction sites. For example, sites near the aquatic bodies or in tropical region are expected to demand for corrosion protective materials and sites near the poles demand for thermal insulations.
It is desired that the protective building materials must fulfill its purpose and should merely contribute to the overall weight of the building. Lack of innovation, high cost, and less durability are expected to restrain the growth of protective building materials market. Indeed, it is required to develop protective building materials which can provide overall resistance without compromising with strength and aesthetics of the building.
Increasing seismic activities and frequently changing environment is likely to boost up the protective building materials market. There is a high scope of development in protective building materials that exalt aesthetics of the structure and also make them indelible.
