NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "Increasing need for building thermal management is driving the roofing chemicals market" The global roofing chemicals market is projected to reach USD 106.83 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2016 to 2021. The growing need for building thermal management is the major driver in the global roofing chemicals market. Roofing chemicals which are used for roofs help to reduce the absorption of heat and keep them cool. Cool roofs save a huge amount of money by reducing the power consumption which is required for cooling buildings. Also, the high growth in the construction sector is expected to stimulate the demand for roofing chemicals, but the high installation costs and the high manufacturing costs may restrain growth in future. "Bituminous roofing, the largest and membrane roofing is the fastest growing application for roofing chemicals" Roofing chemicals are majorly used in bituminous roofing. Bituminous roofing has a long lifespan and is economical as compared to others. Bituminous roofs are durable, can withstand all kinds of weather, and are watertight. The bituminous mix can also be used as Stress Absorbing Membranes (SAM) for sealing cracks and interim overlays for preventative maintenance or Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayers (SAMI). Due to its high creep resistance property, it can also be used at busy intersections, bridge decks, and roundabouts to increase their life. The different types of membranes used in roofing are synthetic rubber, thermoplastic, and modified bitumen. Maintenance of membrane roofing is easy, it is highly resistant to damage, and exhibits temperature flexibility. " Asia-Pacific, the largest and fastest-growing market for roofing chemicals"The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for roofing chemicals globally. There is tremendous scope for roofing chemicals in the Asia-Pacific market due to the high growth in the Chinese economy and rapid industrialization. China is the key consumer of roofing chemicals in the Asia-Pacific region as well as globally. Further, the resulting rapid developments in the construction industry is driving the demand for roofing chemicals for residential buildings in the region.
