The bitumen market size was valued at USD 100 million metric ton in 2020 and is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021 – 2028. Growth of the market is attributed to the increasing road constructions, rapid urbanization, increasing population, and increasing demand for bitumen as sealant.

Bitumen Market Key Takeaways

 

Bitumen is also known as asphalt it is a black, sticky, and semi-solid or highly viscous liquid form of petroleum. It is known for its adhesive and waterproofing properties and can obtained through distillation of crude oil and also found naturally. It is mixture of hydrocarbons and contain compound such as sulfur, iron, hydrogen, and calcium.
The Covid-19 pandemic affected the demand and supply of the bitumen market. Lockdown across the globe, supply chain disorders, and oscillating supply of raw materials forced manufacturers to shut down production leading to unfortunate decline in market growth. Launch of vaccines to combat the Covid-19 pandemic is expected to contribute to the market growth over the forecast period.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increased road construction and frequently growing population is projected to boost the market.
  • Rapid growth in construction activities is a key factor fueling the market.
  • Unfavorable condition due to impact of covid-19 pandemic are anticipated to restrict market growth during the forecast period.
  • Increasing environment concern regarding bitumen possesses a main challenge that can hamper the market expansion in the coming years.
