Waterproof coatings are protective finishes or membranes applied to materials like masonry, wood, concrete, or metal roofs to prevent seepage of water or moisture through them. Waterproof coatings are extensively used in construction for applications like basements, terraces, rooftops, and tunnels where resistance against water is crucial. Rapid urbanization and infrastructure development have resulted in significant growth in the global construction industry over the past few years. Various governments across countries are undertaking major infrastructure projects involving tunnels, bridges, and dams where waterproof coatings play a critical role.
The global waterproof coatings market is estimated to be valued at US$ 17.13 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The growing construction industry worldwide, as highlighted in the heading, is one of the major drivers propelling the waterproof coatings market growth. As construction projects involving crucial water resistance requirements like basements and tunnels rise substantially, demand for high-performance waterproof coating solutions sees a parallel increase. Another driver is the rising number of repair and renovation construction projects in developed regions. Old infrastructure needs frequent maintenance and repair works where waterproofing plays an important role. Deck coatings, roof coatings and tank linings require re-application of waterproof layers after every few years contributing to continuous market opportunity. These drivers are expected to ensure steady market growth of waterproof coatings over the forecast period.
The global waterproof coatings market is dominated by the roof coatings sub-segment, which accounts for more than 35% market share. Roof coatings have widespread applications in residential, commercial and industrial establishments for waterproofing rooftops and preventing leakage. They provide long lasting protection against water damage and are more cost effective than roof renovation or replacement.
