Sealants, commonly known as sealing agent in construction industry, are used to block heat, sound, dust, and fluid through apertures at joints in the building structures. They hold various properties and are particularly effective in the waterproofing processes to provide barrier for moisture in the built structures, temperature & chemical stability, weather resistance, flexibility, and among others. Sealants can also be used to provide acoustic and thermal insulation and fire barriers.
Global Construction Sealants Market - Market Dynamics
The global Construction Sealants Market is primarily driven by heavy investments in the infrastructure in the developing nations like China and India. These countries are the two most populated countries of the world and have been witnessing rapid urbanization. Construction in these countries is at all time high because of the majority of the population moving to urban areas. This shift will require more residential and commercial building construction, therefore, fueling growth in the construction sealants market in the region. Moreover, high durability & strength, high flexibility, high temperature resistance and other advantages of the construction sealants has also attracted the attention for its usage in the construction industry.
In Middle East and Africa, there are lots of big construction projects whether residential or commercial are being developed in the region. In 2018, the total value of the Saudi Arabian capital projects is estimated to approximately $1 trillion. At the same time, the U.A.E. comes second with capital projects of ~$700 billion, while Egypt and Kuwait are the following two with ~$570 billion and ~$200 billion respectively. Therefore, fueling growth in the market.
