Asia-Pacific Bitumen Market Outlook 2024: Regional Opportunity Assessment and Demand Analysis, Market Forecast, 2016-2024

Asia-Pacific Bitumen Market

Market Overview

In Asia Pacific, China itself is the 13.2 million metric ton asphalt industry attributing to new construction and maintenance/repairs. By identifying a solvent or solvent blend, capable of selective flocculation and precipitation of the clay−water clusters while precipitating only a minor amount of asphaltene bitumen recovery can be improved. Water-based bitumen extraction from Athabasca oil sands involves four steps: Oil sand lump size reduction, bitumen liberation, aeration, flotation and interactions. Bitumen demand in Asian countries is strong, however China have been suffering from oversupply and accounting for the lion’s share i.e. nearly two-third of total bitumen consumption. It is predicted that in the upcoming years (probably after 5-6 years) Asian bitumen market will be totally oversupplied too.

Shell’s pioneering inventions in colored binders, low-temperature solutions; low-odor bitumen and underwater adhesives have set the industry standards for these applications and range of solutions from airports and highways to roofing and Formula One tracks.

Growth Drivers and Challenges

Product stewardship along with technical specification and focus on infrastructure projects in Australia, replacement of closed refineries with trading houses and imports from Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Malaysia, initiative to build new road and rail networks and investments in storage and shipping businesses are the major growth drivers of APAC bitumen market. In addition, developing storage infrastructure and introduction of innovative packaging solutions tends to take bitumen market on heights.

However, bitumen manufacturers face tough challenges due to the sanctions imposed on the country by the respective government along with a falling domestic market and declining prices in China due to over-supply and weak demand hinders the APAC bitumen market.

Market Size and Forecast (2016-2024)

APAC is projected to account for a volume share of around 31% of the global bitumen market by the end of the 2024 owing to rising construction projects in India, China, Thailand, and Vietnam.

On the basis of application, road construction share is forecast to witness highest gains over the projected timeframe while waterproofing applications was valued at over USD 8.78 billion in 2016. On the basis of product, PMB market size is projected to dominate the bitumen market while paving bitumen market is forecast to witness gains more than 2.25% CAGR over the estimated period.

In APAC, India is the promising market, with a recommencing emphasis on infrastructure by the government and USD 162 billion were spent on roads and bridges between 2012 and 2017, deeming for over 17% of India’s total infrastructure expenditure. Nearly two-third of total worldwide bitumen consumption is attributed to China making it the largest consumer of APAC as well as global bitumen market.
