In addition, variation in changing climatic conditions coupled with heavy traffic hampers bitumen roads adversely, thus leading to cracks and rutting. Thus, increasing demand for polymer modified bitumen to comprehend such as factors are propelling market growth over the next seven years. Use of polymer-modified bitumen reduces the investment required for road maintenance every year. However, higher initial investment is one of the key challenges for market growth, in the recent years. Yet, polymer modified bitumen is highly cost-efficient, thus positively affecting market growth over the next seven years.
The polymer modified bitumen industry is broadly categorized into two major segments based on the product type such as thermoplastic elastomers and plastomers. The thermoplastic elastomers is considered as one of the fastest growing segment in the polymer modified bitumen market with substantial revenue generation in the last few years. Growing popularity of the thermoplastic elastomers segment is attributed to the increasing use as elastomeric materials and superior properties such as improved ageing resistance, low temperature flexibility and resistance to permanent deformation. The plastomers segment has also witnessed substantial growth.
