Future Market Insights
A waterstop is a concrete structure intended to prevent the flow of water. Waterstops are manufactured from extruded plastic, stainless steel and copper and they are coated with polymeric coatings. A multitude of accessories and developments are expected to boost demand for the waterstop market, globally. Different waterstops are used depending on the application area, such as an external waterstop. The global waterstop market trend is shifting from stainless steel waterstops to flexible polymer waterstops. Flexible syntactic waterstops have an added advantage as they’re durable and corrosion free and can resist fluctuating water conditions. These benefits are forecasted to drive growth of the global waterstop market. Typical structures requiring waterstops include storage tanks, culverts & tunnels, retaining walls, waste water treatment facilities, bridge & deck abutments and water reservoirs.
Global Waterstop Market:Market Dynamics
Waterstop are manufactured in various shapes depending on the end use. Waterstop manufacturers are generally manufacturers of flexible syntactic and rust proof materials; as a result the waterproofing quality of the waterstop is durable. Waterstops also offer added safety to some extent, providing an added benefit to civil contractors or end users. The global waterstop market is also driven by the product’s unique features, such as good chemical resistance, compatibility for portable water structures and rain and moisture resistance.
Rapid industrialization in developing economies and growing development in construction industries are some of the macro-economic factors supporting growth of the global waterstop market. Furthermore, the global waterstop market is driven by burgeoning growth in the chemical industry worldwide.
Lack of consumer awareness, high cost and technical limitations such as cyclical water conditions may deter growth of the waterstop market. Cyclic wetting and drying of a waterstop may cause it to swell and breakdown from the wall. This is another factor expected to hamper growth of the global waterstop market. To overcome such restraints key manufacturing companies are focusing on product development and launching new waterstops with increased durability.
