Rising popularity of bituminous waterproofing membrane

Bituminous sheet membranes, owing to their ease of installation, are widely being used in the construction industry. These membranes safeguard vulnerable joints and resist the entry of water in cracks. Waterproofing roof solutions using bituminous sheet membranes are achieving widespread industry recognition for their numerous performance and installation benefits. The rising adoption of bituminous waterproofing membrane is expected to reflect positively on the growth of the global sheet membrane market by 2021.

Increasing use of polymers

Polymers, owing to ease of raw material accessibility and excellent thermal and weather endurance, have a consequential impact on the overall demand for waterproofing membranes such as sheet membranes. Thermoplastic polyolefins (TPOs), polyurethanes, polyvinyl chloride, ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene are some of the key polymers that are used for waterproofing applications. The rising use of these polymers in roofing applications, which is the main application for the waterproofing membrane market, is expected to contribute to the overall growth of the global sheet membrane market.
