Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106870 | Status : Ongoing



The global bitumen market has been facing environmental issues and sustainability challenges. Hence, end-user companies are adopting eco-friendly and sustainable ways to expand their product line. This has created a favorable demand for eco-friendly bitumen globally. Additionally, desirable properties of bitumen, such as adhesion, waterproof, strength, durability, and versatility, make it most suitable for end-users. Product manufacturers and developers are now aiming to produce sustainable bitumen to efficiently serve the end-user demands.

The rapid growth in construction industry is one of the key driver for the eco-friendly bitumen market. In comparison to traditional bitumen, eco-friendly bitumen releases less carbon dioxide, hence, it is more environmental friendly. Additionally, the product is cost-effective and can be recycled. The product has nitrogen functional group, which increases the viscosity, enhances oxidation resistance, and improves resistance to water. This makes it a good fit for road, building, and waterfront construction. Moreover, the rising demand for paint, ink, construction, and foundry is anticipated to surge the consumption of eco-friendly bitumen.

There are a few essential functions of eco-friendly bitumen:

  • It offers very strong anti-microbial erosion on the surface.

  • It has more durable surface to improve the speed of slowing down the aging and prolong road service.

  • The product is wax-free; high wax can damage the quality of asphalt.

  • It’s manufacturing process is simple.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Eco-friendly Bitumen Market

As the covid-19 has spread around the globe, concerns have shifted from supply-side issues to decreased business in the service sector. Hence, companies of all sizes have already stopped operations. On account of discontinued operations, industries such as construction were moderately impacted. Road construction was impacted by the shortage of raw materials, labor, and limited transportation activities. Therefore, the demand for bitumen decreased during 2020. But in the current scenario, the market is in the recovery phase as transportation and production operations are active. Factories are expected to continue to operate and deliver raw materials.
