Global Bitumen Emulsifiers Market Overview


The Bitumen Emulsifiers Market Size was valued at USD 0.13 Billion in 2022. The Bitumen Emulsifiers industry is projected to grow from USD 0.15 Billion in 2023 to USD 0.18 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). Due to the growing demand from the construction industry, the global market is predicted to rise. The emulsifying agents or additives used to make bitumen emulsions are known as bitumen emulsifiers. The nature of these additions can be anionic, cationic, or non-ionic. They operate as surface-active agents, preventing the emulsion from coagulating and remaining in the state of fine droplets. They also aid in the reduction of VOC emissions, making them more environmentally friendly and sustainable.Bitumen Emulsifiers Market OverviewSource: Secondary Research, Primary Research, MRFR Database, and Analyst Review


Bitumen Emulsifiers Market Trends




  • Increasing Demand for Bitumen Emulsion to Drive Market




One of the most important materials used in road construction is bitumen emulsions. The usage of this emulsion has practical relevance in high-construction projects, according to Frontiers Organization's research. According to recent data, China's apparent consumption of such emulsion exceeded 32 million tons in 2018, with applications including road building, airport construction, housing, and water conservancy construction. Asphalt emulsions have a lower heating temperature than hot asphalt and use 50% less energy to heat. Attributed to their nature, these emulsions are more cost-effective than cut-back bitumen. Cutback is made up of 70% bitumen and 30% petroleum solvents like naphtha, diesel, kerosene, and others. Emulsions are made up of 60% bitumen and 40% water. Furthermore, bitumen emulsion production minimizes dangerous VOC emissions by a large margin and is unaffected by weather conditions. This is predicted to boost the demand for bitumen emulsion, which will, in turn, surge the demand for such emulsifiers. 


Additionally, Bitumen emulsions are used extensively in the construction industry. Bitumen and its emulsions are widely employed in the construction of roads and national highways around the world. For example, due to China's rapid development and investment in road construction, asphalt used in road construction now accounts for about 75% of the country's total emulsifier usage. Furthermore, many qualities of asphalt emulsions, including ease of handling, environment-friendliness, and high mixing ability with cement and latex, have boosted the demand for such emulsions, boosting the market growth.

January 2024- Arkema becomes a stockholder of the start-up Tiamat, spun off from the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in 2017 and a forerunner in sodium-ion battery technology. The funding will allow the Group to boost the advancement of technical solutions designed for these batteries, which do not use lithium. The Group is once again determining its disposition to be a significant player in battery materials, providing an extraordinary of products adapted to all energy storage technologies. Since 2017, the start-up Tiamat has been developing, designing, industrializing, and promoting sodium-ion batteries, the latest lithium-free technology, allowing the avoidance of the factors linked with the supply of this metal.


Bitumen Emulsifiers Market Segment Insights


Bitumen Emulsifiers Type Insights


The Bitumen Emulsifiers Market segmentation, based on Type, includes cationic, anionic, and non-ionic types of bitumen emulsifiers. The cationic bitumen emulsifier segment is expected to hold the prime share in the market owing to better emulsifying performance and exceptional adhesion to the mineral aggregates. As most of the aggregates are negatively charged, the positively charged cationic emulsions are largely employed due to molecular attraction. The anionic segment is expected to show significant growth by the end of the forecast period. 


Bitumen Emulsifiers Application Insights


Based on Application, the Bitumen Emulsifiers Market segmentation includes unmodified and modified bitumen in terms of applications. The unmodified bitumen segment accounted for the highest revenue in 2020. The rising demand from the construction sector is expected to propel the segment's growth.

February 2019- ArrMaz, a part of Arkema Group, developed groundbreaking technology for cost-effective and efficient chip seal pavement under the brand name ArrTekk. CRS emulsifiers are claimed to provide desired emulsion viscosity across bitumen for chip seal pavement.

December 2023- Pinova's permanently shut down chemical processing facility in Brunswick will be completely discharged in December 2024, the company announced on December 19th. The facility permanently closed last summer after the huge fire in April, which provoked a local state of emergency and shelter-in-place orders. Though there were no major injuries or deaths, more than 200 workers lost their jobs because of the closure. Withdrawing of the terpene resin building where the fire broke out happened. The rest of the site will be discharged starting in February. Pinova director of operations Ron Kurtz said at a meeting of the Glynn County Board of Commissioners that if they had to put a projected annual volume of money that never left the 30-mile radius here, it would be somewhere nearly USD60 million. Pinova is weighing the provision of a dozen contractors to decommission the nearly 300-acre site. A winning offer will be awarded next month. Ultimately, the firm proposes to sell the property. No timetable for the sale has been disclosed.
