Road Construction represents the bulk of the demand for modified bitumen

Modified bitumen has been widely used for road construction. Modified bitumen increases the lifetime, flexibility, and strength of the road which acts as a major driver for the use of modified bitumen. Modified bitumen are used for road construction which includes bridges & flyovers, tunnel liners, and airport runways highways.

The SBS segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Modified bitumen is produced by blending normal bitumen with suitable polymers and other additives to improve the inherent properties of bitumen. The major modifiers used are atactic polypropylene (APP), styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS), crumb rubber, and natural rubber. SBS is the most widely used modifier.SBS modified bitumen can deal with the stress created by temperature fluctuation, normal expansion and contraction. These factors acts as a major driver for the use of SBS.

“Asia-Pacific market estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for modified bitumen, in terms of volume, followed by Europe and North America. China, the U.S., Germany, Canada, and Mexico are the largest consumers of modified bitumen. End-use industries such as road construction and building construction, represent the bulk of the demand for modified bitumen in Asia-Pacific.
