Hygroscopic Building Material Market Size

Hygroscopic Building Material Market size was valued at USD 810 million in 2022 and is estimated to expand at 6.3% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. Hygroscopic materials help regulate humidity levels, preventing excessively dry or damp indoor conditions that can lead to discomfort, respiratory issues, and mold growth. Hygroscopic materials absorb excess moisture during periods of high humidity and release it when the air is drier, helping to prevent condensation, mold, and mildew formation.

Maintaining optimal indoor humidity levels enhances occupant comfort, reduces the risk of allergies, and promotes better respiratory health. Hygroscopic materials can passively regulate indoor humidity levels, potentially reducing the need for energy-intensive dehumidification or humidification systems.

Integrating hygroscopic materials with existing building systems and materials may require careful planning. Improper design or installation of hygroscopic materials can lead to moisture-related problems, such as excessive humidity, condensation, and mold growth. Hygroscopic materials require proper maintenance and care to ensure their continued effectiveness in regulating indoor humidity levels.

COVID-19 Impact

Many construction projects were halted or delayed due to labor shortages, supply chain disruptions, and health concerns, affecting the demand for building materials, including hygroscopic materials. Thus, the reduced number of COVID-19 cases and implementation of subsequent strategies by government and non-government organizations is set to drive the market growth.

Hygroscopic Building Material Market Trends

Increased awareness of indoor air quality and its impact on health has led to a growing demand for hygroscopic materials that regulate humidity and contribute to a healthier indoor environment. Hygroscopic materials align with sustainability goals, as they can passively regulate humidity and reduce the need for energy-intensive HVAC systems, contributing to energy efficiency. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of healthy indoor environments, driving interest in materials that support better air quality and occupant wellbeing.
