Sustainability Drives Asphalt Additives

The global asphalt additives market is on the rise backed by increasing environmental concerns and the need to maintain asphalt pavements for sustainable development. Inclusion of asphalt additives not only increases the performance of asphalt, but also proves to be a pragmatic solution.

The global asphalt additives market will grow, and one trend in the market is the increasing use of asphalt emulsions. Asphalt emulsions are used to recycle older pavements. The growing demand across countries, especially in the U.S., drives the market for asphalt emulsions. These emulsions reduce the time required for paving jobs and are preferred for their low cost and solid performance.

A driver in market is the furtherance of the transport sector and infrastructural development. Countries across the globe still face the problem of unpaved roads that stretch for sizable distances when compared with paved counterparts. This is one of the most important factors driving the global asphalt additives market.

This market will run parallel to the construction of roads and infrastructure improvements and will help with the growth of the industry.
