Waterproofing membranes, chemicals, and admixtures are required for improving the waterproofing capability of structures constantly dealing with liquids. Waterproofing chemicals have different types of chemistries involved in the manufacturing of miscellaneous waterproofing systems/technologies. These chemistries include PVC, TPO, EPDM, bitumen, and others (crystalline waterproofing chemicals, liquid acrylic elastomeric waterproofing compounds, polymer modified waterproofing compounds, cementitious waterproofing compounds, and so on). These chemicals are assorted with definite additives or are put through certain chemical processes for the manufacturing of desired waterproofing system/technology for serving the end-use industries.
Increasing government investments for improved infrastructure is driving the demand for waterproofing processes. These aspects have encouraged companies to adopt strategies, such as new product launches, expansions, and agreements & contracts. Some of these major players are The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), and Wacker Chemie AG (Germany).
New product launches, expansions, and agreements were the key strategies adopted by the industry players to achieve growth in the waterproofing market between 2012 and 2016. Besides new product launches and expansions, the companies have adopted joint ventures and acquisitions to expand their market share and distribution network. These strategies also accounted for a significant share of the overall growth strategies adopted by the players in the waterproofing market between 2012 and 2016.
