Asphalt Additives Market: Highlights
Additives gained huge momentum in the asphalt pavement industry in the wake of the requirements of high temperature and aging resistance, improvement in thermal cracking and stripping, and reduced maintenance cost of pavements. More than 90% of the road pavements performed today are being done with asphalt.
There is also an increase in the penetration of asphalt with additives over unmodified asphalt. The COVID-19 pandemic brought in slight disruption in the growth of the asphalt paving industry as well as the asphalt additives market with lockdown, shortage of labor, postponement of infrastructural development programs, and disruption in the supply chain all across the globe being the major restraining factors.
The polymer is expected to remain the key product type in the market over the next five years. Key driving factors for polymers are better durability and flexibility, reduction in the life cycle cost, and reduction in rutting, and thermal cracking. Also, different regions have a dominance of different additives along with varying dosage rates. For instance, China has a high penetration of polymer additives, whereas Brazil has a high penetration of emulsifiers.
Road construction is estimated to maintain its huge dominance in the market in the years to come. Increasing new road construction projects fueled by federal and state governments especially in developing economies and strong demand for road maintenance and preservation from the developed economies. Furthermore, there has been an increasing penetration of road asphalt with additives over unmodified asphalts.
Hot mix is estimated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period, whereas warm mix is expected to grow at the highest rate for the same period. Warm mix asphalt is gaining traction with its superiority in the reduction of carbon and fumed gas emissions and safer work environments over hot mix asphalt. North America is the world's largest market for warm mix asphalts, whereas Asia-Pacific is the largest market for hot mix asphalt.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market over the next five years. China, Japan, and South Korea are the leading markets in the region. Strong demand exists from both new road pavement projects as well as pavement preservation/maintenance in the Asia-Pacific region. There is also huge whitespace opportunity from the developing Asian economies, such as India, where additive penetration in the asphalt industry is very low currently.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, asphalt additive manufacturers, asphalt/emulsion manufacturers, asphalt pavement contractors, and state and national highway authorities.
The key asphalt additives manufacturers are Kraton Corporation, Ingevity Corporation, Arkema S. A, Nouryon Chemicals B. V., Kao Chemicals, Sinopec Corp., Colas, BASF SE, Iterchimica S.r.l., Cargill Inc., DowDuPont, Solvay SA, Evonik Industries AG, and Sasol Limited.
