The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the waterproofing products market, bringing both challenges and opportunities to the industry. During the initial phase of the pandemic, widespread lockdowns and restrictions on construction activities and infrastructure projects hampered market growth. Many construction projects were put on hold or delayed, leading to a decline in demand for waterproofing products. The disrupted supply chains and logistical challenges further exacerbated the situation, causing uncertainties in product availability and increasing costs. However, as the world adapted to the new normal and construction activities resumed in various regions, the waterproofing products market started showing signs of recovery. The pandemic's impact on consumer behaviour and priorities also influenced the market dynamics.
With an increased focus on hygiene and cleanliness, there was a surge in demand for waterproofing products in applications like bathrooms, kitchens, and healthcare facilities Moreover, the pandemic-induced emphasis on sustainable construction practices and building resilience drove the need for innovative and eco-friendly waterproofing solutions. Manufacturers responded to this demand by investing in research and development to introduce products that cater to these evolving requirements.
The global Waterproofing Products Market is segmented based on Type, Application, Distribution Channel and Region.
Membranes segment to contribute largest share in market 2022.
Based on type market is segmented into Membranes, Coatings & Sealants. Membranes segment to dominate the market due to the waterproofing products market. These are flexible, thin materials that act as barriers against water infiltration. Liquid Applied Membranes (LAMs) and Sheet Waterproofing Membranes are the two primary types of membranes widely used. Liquid Applied Membranes offer ease of application, making them suitable for complex structures and irregular surfaces.
On the other hand, Coatings and sealants are another important segment in the waterproofing products market. Waterproofing coatings are typically liquid formulations that are applied directly to surfaces, forming a protective and waterproof layer. These coatings can be based on various materials, including acrylics, polyurethanes, and silicones. They are suitable for applications such as roof coatings, concrete surfaces, and walls.
Roofing and Walls to share largest revenue in market 2022.
Based on application market is bifurcate into Roofing and walls, Floors and Basements & Water and Waste Management. Roofing and Walls dominates the market due to it essential to protect buildings from water damage, leaks, and structural deterioration caused by rain, moisture, and extreme weather conditions. Roof waterproofing products, such as liquid applied membranes, bituminous coatings, and sheet membranes, create a seamless and durable barrier, preventing water infiltration into the building's interior.
The floors and basements segment is another significant application area for waterproofing products. Basements, being below ground level, are particularly susceptible to water seepage, and without proper waterproofing, they can face structural issues and water-related damages. Waterproofing solutions for basements include specialized coatings, cementitious waterproofing, and drainage systems to channel water away from the foundation.
While roofing and walls, and floors and basements are dominant in the construction domain, water and waste management represent a unique and crucial application segment in the waterproofing products market. Waterproofing solutions are employed to line water storage reservoirs, sewage treatment plants, and other water containment structures, ensuring that no seepage or leakage occurs, and preserving water quality.
Specialty Product Distributors to hold a major share in market 2022.
Based on distribution channel market is divided into Online Retailers, Specialty Product Distributors & Hardware Stores. Specialty Product Distributors to dominates the market due to these distributors focus on offering a wide array of waterproofing solutions, catering specifically to construction professionals and contractors. They possess in-depth product knowledge and technical expertise, providing valuable guidance to customers in selecting the most suitable products for their projects.
Furthermore, Online retailers' convenience and accessibility of purchasing waterproofing products online have significantly contributed to their popularity. Customers can browse through a wide range of products, compare prices, and read reviews from the comfort of their homes or workplaces. The growing trend of e-commerce has enabled manufacturers and suppliers to reach a broader audience.
While online retailers and specialty distributors lead the market, hardware stores remain a vital distribution channel for waterproofing products. Hardware stores serve as convenient locations for customers to purchase construction materials and DIY products, including waterproofing solutions for smaller-scale projects.
Asia Pacific accounted for the largest revenue share in market 2022.
At the regional level, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East, and Africa. Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2022 due to it characterized by rapid urbanization, infrastructural development, and construction activities. The region's increasing focus on sustainable construction practices and the need to safeguard structures from extreme weather conditions and moisture-related challenges drive the demand for waterproofing solutions.
On the other hand, North America, Europe, and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions are significant markets for waterproofing products. In North America and Europe, demand is driven by renovation and infrastructure projects, while MENA experiences growth due to urbanization and expanding construction sectors. Increasing awareness of water damage prevention and climate variations fuel the market's growth in these regions.
