Bitumen Emulsifiers Market Overview


Bitumen Emulsifiers Market is estimated to reach USD 179.50 Million in 2030 and expected to register 5.10% CAGR during the forecast period.

Bitumen is a black or dark brown non-crystalline soil or viscous material having adhesive properties derived from petroleum crude by refinery processes. Principally, it is obtained as a residual product in petroleum refineries after higher fractions. It is a binder majorly used in road construction. The bitumen emulsifier is a surface-active agent that helps bitumen dissolve in water. The role of bitumen emulsifier
is to create a coating on surface charge around the bitumen droplets to separate tiny bitumen particles from each other. Bitumen emulsifiers help in keeping the bitumen particles in a dispersed form. Bitumen is an oil-based substance, which is difficult to dissolve in water and hence requires bitumen emulsifiers to dissolve it in water.


Construction activities are increasing in the US, the UK, India, and Mexico. Governments in developing and developed countries are increasing their expenditure on public sector infrastructure such railways, hospitals, and institutions, which is driving the demand for bitumen emulsifiers. In addition, growing demand for commercial infrastructure in countries such as India, Indonesia, South Korea, and Malaysia are driving market growth. China has been witnessing considerably slow growth in the construction industry, whereas steady economic growth in Indonesia is likely to take cause the country’s construction industry to overtake the construction industry in Japan. Thus, the market in Asia-Pacific is dominating the global construction industry during the forecast period. For instance, world’s population is projected to surpass 8.60 billion by 2030, which will positively impact the bitumen emulsifiers market.

Regional Analysis


Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global bitumen emulsifiers market. Infrastructure investment is the key factor driving the construction industry in the region. In addition, urbanization, rapid industrialization, and consumer spending have strengthened economic growth, which is positively impacting the construction industry and, thus the bitumen emulsifiers market.  


The market in North America is estimated to register remarkable growth due to a rise in construction activities in the southern and western regions. Among the largest state, Texas is witnessing strongest growth in terms of construction activities such as projects for Education and Public buildings are on demand. Non-building construction, which includes roads and bridges demand is forecasted to grow by 6% during the forecast period. Thus, application of emulsifiers in road construction, repair, and maintenance will increase in the region during forecast period.


The market in Europe is dominated by the UK and Germany, owing to the increasing demand for residential buildings, which is increasing the need for bitumen emulsifiers in the region.


In Latin America, Mexico is a fastest growing economy, which has surpassed the market in Brazil, the growth of automotive, electronics, and food & beverage industries have accelerated the demand for roads, parking space, warehouses, industrial areas, and commercial building.


The Middle East is estimated to grow at a healthy rate during the assessment period due to the increasing hotel construction projects led by a rise in tourism.


Market Segmentation


The global bitumen emulsifiers market has been segmented based on surface charge, setting time, application, end use, and region. Based on surface charge, the global market has been categorized into anionic, cationic, and non-ionic. Anionic emulsions are high resistance acids and cationic emulsions get easily dissolved. The global bitumen emulsifier market is segmented by setting time into rapid, medium, and slow. The medium and rapid setting time is on-demand among builders. The global market is segmented, by application, into mixing grade and spay grade. The mixing grade is expected to be the fastest-growing segment. The global bitumen emulsifier market further segregated, by end use, into polymer modified bitumen and unmodified bitumen. The polymer modified bitumen segment is expected to grow at 4.34% CAGR during the assessment period.
