A waterproofing membrane is a thin layer of a material which forms an impenetrable barrier over the surfaces of walls, roofs, foundations, and structural components of buildings to avoid water ingress through these surfaces. They also prevent the leakage or escape of water from water-retaining structures which represents ample market opportunities from wastewater industry growth. These waterproofing membranes are produced from various materials with an absorption rate below 4% and primarily in the range of 1% - 2%.

Waterproofing membranes can be simply laid on top or adhered to a substrate to avoid water penetration. The selection of an appropriate membrane is crucial to ensure compatibility with the substrate. It is also important to consider the environment where the membrane has to be applied as certain products are sensitive to the presence of moisture during application, which may lead to ineffectiveness and may hinder market share.

Waterproofing membranes offer several advantages such as durability, protection from leakage and high strength which creates market opportunities. These membranes help avoid problems associated with dampness such as metal corrosion, crumbling of plasters, and damage to electric fittings which should augment market share. The growing demand for reliable and durable materials in construction sector along with favorable government regulations to promote energy efficiency should accelerate Asia Pacific waterproofing membrane market growth.

Indian standard 3384 – 1986 lays down the specifications for bitumen primer usage in priming masonry & concrete surfaces before waterproofing membranes are applied. This standard gives the minimum requirements of the primer in terms of viscosity, flash point and water content in percentage. It also mandates that information such as the manufacturer’s name, batch number, bitumen grade and manufacturing date be clearly labeled on the bitumen primer container.

Excellent chemical resistance of sheet membranes to trigger Asia Pacific waterproofing membrane demand

Asia Pacific Sheet Waterproofing Membrane Market

Get more details on this report - Request Free Sample PDF

The Asia Pacific waterproofing membrane market is segmented by product into sheet and liquid membranes. Sheet membranes primarily refer to vulcanized rubber, rubberized asphalt and thermoplastics. These materials are generally offered in roll form and are ideal for horizontal & vertical applications. The primary advantage of sheet membranes is the ability to achieve uniform thickness in on-site application and availability in the form of self-adhering rolls which is driving the market.

Asia Pacific bituminous sheet waterproofing membrane market size surpassed USD 290 million in 2018. Bituminous sheet membranes are primarily available in single- and double-layered forms which imparts high tensile strength against structural vibrations, which should stimulate market demand. These products are extensively used in water canals, tunnel foundations, sloped surfaces, pools, dams, and roof waterproofing solutions. They offer protection to roof decks from the rain, weathering, heat, UV rays and from resins bleeding out from the overlay which indicates tremendous market opportunities.

Ethylene propylene diene monomers (EPDM) sheet membranes are resistant to degradation from exposure to sunlight, weather, oxidation and heat which should boost market share. They have greater environmental & chemical resistance as compared to other polymers and virtually require no maintenance. These products are well-suited for the canal & drainage systems of chemical plants to prevent seepage through concrete which is driving the market growth.

Car park deck end-use segment to boost the Asia Pacific waterproofing membrane market size

Based on end-use, the Asia Pacific waterproofing membrane industry is segmented into roof, deck & terrace, car park decks, garden roof, wall, landfill & tunnel, wet area, pools, and basement. These membranes play a vital role in ensuring the long-term cost efficiency and structural integrity of car parks. They help protect car parks from the adverse impact of brake fluids, exhaust fumes, deicing salts, lubricants and mechanical impact of car weight which represents ample opportunities for the market.

Waterproofing membranes help bridge cracks formed on parking decks thereby preventing the entry of harmful substances, subsequent structural damage and should increase market share. These materials are majorly composed of two to four layers with each layer having varying properties and suited for specific tasks. They ensure that car parks comply with rising health & safety regulations regarding skid & slip resistance, offer visual aesthetics and design flexibility which offers various market opportunities.

Waterproofing membranes help fulfill the varied protection needs of different car park stories. They help top decks deal with environmental stresses such as exposure to snow, hail, and sunlight, which should promote market size. These membranes protect interior & intermediate car parks from chemical attack, offer and system-integrated waterproofing of junctions, upstands and kerbs. Waterproofing membranes also protect driveways and ramps from extreme mechanical load, offer reinforcement and shorten refurbishment closure time which should stimulate market demand.

The China waterproofing membranes market size should register over 10% gains by 2025. These materials help protect infrastructure such as bridges and tunnels from the chemical & physical attack from freeze-thaw cycles, traffic and rainwater. Significant growth in infrastructure market share and urbanization is likely to promote Asia Pacific waterproofing membrane market growth. In October 2018, China’s State Council issued guidelines on promoting investment in the development of infrastructure such as roads, waterways, airports and railways industry growth which should promote market demand.

Waterproofing membranes protect infrastructure such as elevated tunnels, cut & cover tunnels and water retaining structures from aggressive chemicals found in urban runoff and groundwater. These membranes possess superior adhesion which prevents slipping & sliding, and high thermal resistance which prevents shrinkage or puncturing during high temperature application. They allow long-term infrastructure usage by extending service life, operational performance and safety which should create growth opportunities for the market.
