The construction sealants market is estimated to be USD 7.54 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 9.92 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2017 to 2022.
The market is mainly driven by factors such as increased demand for construction sealants in residential housing and infrastructure markets, rising demand from developing countries, as construction sealants bonding provides safety and ease of application and increasing demand from glazing and panels in new high-rise buildings. However, environmental regulations in North American and European countries may restrain the growth of the market.
Silicone sealants are widely used in glazing, bathroom, and kitchen applications. The increasing use of silicone sealants in expansion joints for joining dissimilar materials, which provide weather protection to high-rise buildings and flexibility for airport runways and highways, as these sealants remain pliable and do not crack in warm weather or become brittle and crack in cold weather, is driving the market.
The Middle East & Africa is expected to witness moderate growth in the coming years. Building & construction is expected to emerge as a key sector in the region. Several leading global players have established their manufacturing plants in the Middle East & Africa to cater to the growing demand for construction sealants in the region.
