Asphalt Additives Market Trends

  • Increasing investments in the infrastructure sector is driving the market growth

One of the key drivers boosting the Asia Pacific asphalt additives market is rising infrastructure spending in China, India, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The expansion of road construction and other public infrastructure development projects for better transport and increased connectivity between significant economic centers in these countries can be attributed to the rise in government spending on infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region. The amount spent by the Indian government on building roads and bridges grew. The infrastructure industry has reportedly become one of the Indian government's main areas of attention, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation. The Indian government announced USD 13.14 billion for road and highway construction in the Union Budget 2020–21. In the countries of the Asia Pacific region, public-private partnerships and foreign investments in applications for road pavement are important trends that are anticipated to boost the market for road construction over the next ten years. A rise in infrastructure development and road construction projects in the Asia Pacific region are anticipated to support the growth of the asphalt additives market during the forecast period since asphalt additives are utilized in road pavements.

Industry participants have been urged to switch to bio-based additives as a result of the rise in demand for environmentally friendly additives, which is being driven by the move away from petroleum-based additives. Regulations governing the commercialization of bio-based goods have been passed by regulatory organizations. The emphasis has shifted significantly in favor of bio-based additives.

Renewable raw materials are used to create bio-based additives. These additives are non-hazardous, environmentally friendly, and safe to handle. During production and use, they don't produce any dangerous substances. Products made from biomaterials can drastically reduce the amount of energy used overall. Due to consumers' increased environmental consciousness, Key Players are employing more eco-friendly products. For example, SYLVAROAD RP1000 asphalt additives from Kraton Corporation are a bio-based additive that helps reduce energy use and the CO2 footprint of pavements, while Cecabase RT from CECA is made from at least 50% vegetable oil. It assists in reducing energy use during construction by up to 30%. The global market for asphalt additives is expected to soon gain greatly from all these advantages and investments in bio-based additives. Thus, driving the Asphalt Additives market revenue.

Asphalt Additives Market Segment Insights

Asphalt Additives Type Insights

The Asphalt Additives Market segmentation, based on type, includes polymeric modifiers, anti-strip and adhesion promoters, emulsifiers, chemical modifiers, rejuvenators, fibers, flux oil, colored asphalt, and others. In 2022, the polymeric modifiers category dominated the world market. This market segment's growth is attributable to asphalt pavements' exceptional stiffness, strength, enhanced flexibility, and durability. These are the most widely used kind of asphalt additives because they are easy to use and can be made with readily available raw materials. The polymeric modifiers styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) and styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) are among the most often used. These products lengthen the lifespan of the asphalt by acting as compatibilizing or cross-linking agents.

Asphalt Additives Application Insights

The Asphalt Additives Market segmentation, based on application, includes road construction & paving, roofing, airport construction, and others. In 2022, the segment for road construction and paving led the global market for asphalt additives. Wear and tear, rain, extremes of temperature, and frost are just a few of the variables that cause damage to roads. With the use of asphalt additives, this damage can be avoided. These additives assist increase the durability of pavements by reducing rutting and cracking, which raises the demand for them.

Asphalt Additives Technology Insights

The Asphalt Additives Market segmentation, based on technology, includes hot mix, cold mix, and warm mix. Hot mix segment dominated the global market in 2022. Hot mix asphalt has a long lifespan and is resistant to thermal cracking and moisture damage. Additionally, it offers superb workability and anti-skid properties. The development of new highways and motorways is what is causing this segment to expand.

The North America Asphalt Additives Market is expected to register significant growth from 2023 to 2032. A vast network of infrastructure, including ports, highways, bridges, power grids, and internet connection, supports the U.S. economy. Important roads and interstates deteriorate as traffic congestion rises. The high rate of road deterioration in the US is what causes traffic. The government is sponsoring a number of transit infrastructures to solve this issue. The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) conducted a poll to evaluate the possible future expansion for driveway, bridge, road, and parking lot development in the United States. The deterioration brought on by more traffic on major roads and interstates has made the importance of the road base apparent. The right basic materials must be used for durable roadway building. The necessity for efficient road transport has grown as a result of growing industrialisation, enabling the quick transfer of raw materials and completed goods. The U.S.'s growing need for efficient roads and highways will drive the market for asphalt additives and increase demand for improved attributes in traditional materials to increase durability. Further, the U.S. Asphalt Additives market held the largest market share, and the Canada Asphalt Additives market was the fastest growing market in the North America region.
