Dry Mix Mortar Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type
Cement grouts segment held the largest share in dry mix mortar market in the year 2021. Cement grouts are used in forming pressure to fill forms, voids and cracks while adding cement or reinforced concrete in various establishments. Cement grout is generally made from a mixture of water, cement and sand that is used in filling voids, pressure grouting, connecting sections of pre-cast concrete, embedding rebar in masonry walls and ceiling joints such as those between tiles. Cement grouts can be used in several establishments including dams, bridges, marine applications and rock anchors. The grouted mass has enhanced properties such as enhanced strength, stiffness, and reduced permeability. This is driving the demand for cement grouts segment in the dry mix mortar market.
Dry Mix Mortar Market Segment Analysis – By Application
Tile adhesive segment held the largest share in the dry mix mortar market in the year 2021. The increase in the number of building activities across the globe is majorly driving the demand for tile adhesives segment in the dry mix mortar market. Tile adhesives are a special type of glue that is used in sticking tiles together. Tile adhesives are also used for fixing tiles on wall, floors, swimming pools which may contain all types of cements and admixtures such as cement grouts, floor screeds and others. Tile adhesives are fast and efficient, easy to use, forms thin layer and can be grouted quickly without waiting for the moisture to evaporate. This is majorly driving the demand for tile adhesive segment in the dry mix mortar market.
Dry Mix Mortar Market Segment Analysis – By End Use Industry

The increase in the number of government initiatives and investments in developing the public infrastructure is one of the major factors driving the dry mix mortar market. For instance, according to International Trade Administration, the UK government announced funds for infrastructural development worth US$6.87 billion in September 2020 which will be primarily be spent on the construction of buildings for public hospitals, schools and other local projects. Additionally, the revenue of heavy engineering industry stood at US$92 billion in India alone, which is one of the biggest factors driving the growth and demand of commercial construction sector. This will further increase the demand for dry mix mortar products such as cement grouts, bonding mortar, floor screed and others.
Dry Mix Mortar Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Asia Pacific region held the largest share of 35% in the dry mix mortar market in the year 2021. The growth in the population in the Asia Pacific region coupled with the increase in government policies and investments related to infrastructure in the region is driving the dry mix mortar market. According to Asian Development Bank, developing countries in Asia will invest US$26 trillion in infrastructure from 2016 to 2030, or US$1.7 trillion per year. This will further lead to an increase in the number of infrastructure projects taking place every year in the region. This will also further increase the demand for the dry mix mortar market for various uses such tile adhesives, plastering, floor screeds, and others in the Asia Pacific region.
Dry Mix Mortar Market Drivers
Government initiatives to develop infrastructure is majorly driving the dry mix mortar market
The government initiatives to develop infrastructure in many countries is one of the major factors driving the dry mix mortar industry. As the economies keep developing, the infrastructure of such economies also keeps expanding, which gives scope to markets such as dry mix mortar. According to Global Infrastructure Hub, the projected investment in the construction of road in the USA between 2016-2040 is estimated at US$3.42 trillion. Furthermore, as per The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) policy, for the implementation and development of a Europe-wide network of railway lines, roads, inland waterways, the plan was resourced with US$31.9 billion. This is further driving the demand for dry mix mortar across the globe.
The growing population in developing countries coupled with the increase in demand for infrastructure is driving the dry mix mortar market
The growing population in developing countries like China and India is one of the main factors driving the dry mix mortar market. As the population increases, the need to expand infrastructure and basic amenities also increase, which in turn is leading to the increase in consumption of products such as dry mix mortar. Multilateral development banks such as Asian Development Bank is scaling up operations for sovereign and non-sovereign infrastructure investment, which will further increase the investment in the building and construction sector. The investment has reached US$20 million as of 2020, an increase of 70% from the year 2014. This will further increase the demand for related products and services such as dry mix mortar market. Therefore, this is one of the major driving factors of the dry mix mortar market.
Dry Mix Mortar Market Challenges
High cost of investment is one of the significant challenges hindering the dry mix mortar market
One of the biggest challenges of dry mix mortar market is the high cost of investment involved. It requires the installation of high-end machinery (such as applications like blending equipment etc.) which increases the cost of operation and maintenance. Small-time businesses and establishments cannot afford to invest in such machinery for mixing concrete, cement grouts and others, which eventually makes them opt for normal concrete than dry mix mortar, which is one of the biggest challenges for the dry mix mortar market. Furthermore, delayed hardening, shrinkage and low tensile strength is also hindering the growth of the dry mix mortar market.
