Report Coverage

The “Modified Bitumen Market Report – Forecast (2020-2025)”, by IndustryARC, covers an in-depth analysis of the following segments of the Modified Bitumen Market.


Key Takeaways

  • The current worldwide rates of construction and industrial growth not only create a higher demand for modified bitumen but also generate the scope for the use of modified bitumen in new areas.
  • ARMA's guidelines are expected to enhance the ability of modified bitumen producers and users to build asphalt membranes roofing.
  • One of the main trends for the bitumen market is the emergence of new bitumen refinery plants that will have a tremendous impact on market growth throughout the forecast period.
  • For instance, Porner Ingenieurgesellschaft signed a deal with HPCL-Mittal Energy to build a new bitumen plant in India. The plant has been completely established and is expected to produce more than 65 % of India’s total production of bitumen.

Modifier Type - Segment Analysis

Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS) segment held the largest share in the Modified Bitumen Market in 2018. Due to its superior abrasion resistance and aging stability when combined with Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS), bitumen roofing systems are widely used for waterproofing applications. SBS bitumen has a remarkable life expectancy and is known for its simple methods of installation when compared with synthetic rubber, which is the perfect factors that fuel the global demand for waterproofing materials in the construction industry.

Type - Segment Analysis

Road Construction segment held the largest share in the Modified Bitumen Market at a CAGR of 7.72%. Modified bitumen is commonly used as the organic binding material made from refined crude oil by-products. Because it is reusable and a strong binder, modified bitumen is used in road construction. There has been strong growth in the road construction industry, mostly in Asia-Pacific and Europe, driving demand in the modified bitumen market. The road construction market in Europe is expected to grow strongly by 2019. Emerging countries in Asia-Pacific, such as India, Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, etc., are expected to witness an increase in bitumen demand during the forecast period due to numerous government initiatives in the region to develop and improve public infrastructure.

Application - Segment Analysis

Hot Asphalt Method has been the primary market for Modified Bitumen for many years. Hot asphalt is the most widely used application method globally, as it provides firmness in the summer heat and high penetration index which provides greater flexibility in colder temperatures.

Geography - Segment Analysis

APAC dominated the Modified Bitumen Market share with more than 35%, followed by North America and Europe. Due to the booming construction industry and increased public infrastructure projects in the region, Asia-Pacific is projected to dominate the modified bitumen market globally during the forecast period. India allocated INR 21,453.42 of the INR 71,000 crore budget allocation to the Ministry of Highways for work under the road division in its 2018 budget. It includes expenditure on the development of National Highways, including projects relating to expressways, two-lane highways under the National Highways Development Project, six-lane crowded stretches of the Golden Quadrilateral, a special program for the development of road connectivity in affected areas of Naxal, the development of the Vijayawada-Ranchi road and the provision of last-mile connectivity. In February 2018, a loan of 9.4 billion YEN was signed by the Philippines and Japan to construct the third phase of a road project in Bulacan. The demand for bitumen is projected to be the highest in the Asia-Pacific region with such development projects.

Drivers – Modified Bitumen Market

  • Increasing Road Construction and Repair Activities

In recent years, the massive increase in demand for bitumen for road construction and roofing applications has powered the global changed bitumen market. Demand across these sectors will also lead to sustainable market returns in the coming years and drives vast developments in terms of available product blends for use. Companies are expected to focus more on functional production and improvement of long-term quality, aggregate adhesion, and recyclability of most varieties of modified bitumen over the forecast period.

Challenges – Modified Bitumen Market

  • Fluctuations prices of Modified Bitumen materials

Due to changes in crude oil and petroleum prices, fluctuations in the prices of raw materials may hamper the market growth in the forthcoming evaluation period. In addition, excessive exploration activities worldwide for crude oil may in the near future limit the growth of the modified bitumen market.
