by Team Fact.MR

The global asphalt additives market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of over 5% till 2027, says Fact.MR. Out of every hundred kilometers of newly paved roads constructed worldwide - an estimated 40 kilometers of roads are asphalt based. Road infrastructure is one of the key priorities of governments, and close to 35% of worldwide infrastructure investment is likely to be allocated towards this. Asphalt additives have a concrete role to play in order to improve the performance and sustainability of roads.

Sustainable surfaces are an important attribute in the road construction industry, and present a prime opportunity for government departments as well as contractors to use additives in asphalt paved roads. Construction industry trends have asserted the need for eco-friendly additives in road construction, wherein preference for non-petroleum based additives has gained momentum. This, has encouraged industry participants to shift toward bio-based additives.
