The global soil stabilization materials market is estimated to represent incremental opportunity worth approximately US$ 14 Bn between 2018 and 2028. Advancements in building & construction industry, real estate growth, increasing governmental focus on infrastructural development and increasing demand for enhancing agricultural productivity are some of the factors expected to the boost the global soil stabilization materials market during the forecast period.

Market introduction

Soil stabilization materials are additives added to the natural soil to enhance certain properties of natural soil. Soil stabilization materials help increase the load bearing capacity, tensile strength & overall performance of soil. Soil stabilization materials alter the physical and chemical properties of soil and aggregates by enhancing its engineering properties, either temporarily or permanently.

Soil stabilization materials are mainly classified under three categories: polymers, minerals & stabilizing agents and others. Materials, such as limefly ash, Portland cement, bitumen, etc., fall under the category of minerals & stabilizing agents based soil stabilization materials. Other soil stabilization material includes salts, agricultural waste & slug. Soil stabilization materials are widely used in the construction industry.

The global soil stabilization materials market is expected to show high growth over the forecast period

The global soil stabilization materials market will witness notable growth during the forecast period and will mainly be driven by the rapidly growing construction industry. Also increasing demand for sustainable infrastructure and efficient road transportation for effective global & international trade will boost the demand for soil stabilization materials across the globe. Increasing focus of governments on infrastructural development and rising investments in real estate has surged the demand from the construction sector which further creates demand space for soil stabilization material.

Likewise, increasing infrastructural investments by the government will lead to an increase in the number of roads, railways, bridges, pathways, etc. which in turn, will escalate the growth of the soil stabilization materials market. Also, increasing demand for high agricultural productivity and rising demand for high agricultural yield will boost the demand for soil stabilization materials from the agricultural sector.

China, North America and Western Europe to hold lion’s share in the global soil stabilization materials market

Increasing infrastructural investments in China, Asia Pacific, Europe and North America will boost the demand for soil stabilization materials. Governments in these regions are highly focused on strengthening their transportation network for securing domestic and international trade routes owing to which there will be rise in the governmental projects, such as roadways, railways, airports, bridges etc., which will act as a driving force for the global soil stabilization materials market. North America and Asia Pacific will show high growth and China will be the dominant market in the soil stabilization materials market.
