Global Road Marking Materials Market Report: Information by Type (Thermoplastic Marking Paint, Two-Component (Cold Plastic) Road Marking Paint, Solvent-Based Marking Paint, Water Based Marking Paint, and Others), Application (Roads & Streets, Parking Lot, Airport, and Others), and Region (North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa)-Forecast till 2023
Road marking materials are the kind of paints used on a surface of the road to convey guidance and information to drivers and pedestrians. Retroreflective glass beads are essential additives used during their manufacturing process to impart reflectivity during the night. These road marking materials are used to mark dividers, center line (single broken line, single solid line, double broken line, or double solid line depending upon the road and traffic requirements), traffic lane lines, no passing zones, warning lines, edge lines, transverse markings ( bumps, stop line, pedestrian crossings, directional arrows), and object marking. There is an increasing spending on road infrastructure observed in the recent years, which is a major market driver. The growth of the global road marking materials market is also influenced by the new roadway projects across the globe.
Furthermore, advances in road-marking systems, such as the technological upgrades, availability of specialized laying equipment and machinery, and availability of tools and machinery from the same market players are expected to largely boost the market growth. These factors are also expected to provide strong growth opportunities to the market players. However, stringent environmental regulations on solvent-borne road marking materials and the high cost of raw materials are expected to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
According to the MRFR analysis, the global road marking materials market is projected to register 5.77% CAGR to reach USD 5,466.5 million by the end of 2023. On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into thermoplastic paint markings, two-component (cold plastic) paint markings, solvent-based paints, water-based paints, and others. The thermoplastic paint markings segment accounted for the largest market share of 32.3% in 2017. The segment was valued at USD 1,271.0 million in 2017; it is expected to register a CAGR of 6.13% to reach USD 1,806.9 million by the end of 2023. The growth is attributed to the superior durability, wear and abrasion resistance, and eco-friendly nature of thermoplastic paints markings compared to other types of road marking materials. Solvent based marking paint segment accounted for the second-largest share of the global road marking materials in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.30% to reach to USD 1,208 million by the end of 2023.
By application, the global road marking materials market has been segmented into roads & street, parking lots, airports, and others. The roads & streets segment accounted for the largest share of 55.3% in 2017 due to the large-scale usage of road marking materials on roads & streets for marking center lines, traffic lane lines, warning lines, edge or border lines, bicycle paths, walkway solutions for the visually impaired, pedestrian crossings, transverse markings on bumps, directional arrows, and word messages. The segment was valued at USD 2,176.5 million in 2017; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.09% during the review period. Parking lot segment accounted for the second largest share of the global road marking materials and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.68% to reach to USD 936.1 million by end of 2023.
One of the key trends noticed among market players includes acquisitions, capacity expansions, and product innovation. For instance, in May 2018, Hempel signed agreement to acquire 65% of JW Ostendorf (JWO), Germany's leading manufacturers of decorative paint. Also, in April 2018, another key player, Swarco AG acquired majority shareholding in in Bergauer Holding AG, a Switzerland-based company which is integrated traffic guidance and control system developer.
