Railway Ballast Binder Market: Introduction
Ballast is a heavy material, such as gravel or iron, consists of chunks of rock or limestone mixed, other ingredients such as sand. Ballast is widely used to form the bed of a railway track or the substratum of a road. It has multifunctional qualities such as it acts as a foundation, support and provide drainage to the railway tracks. Railway ballast binders hold the track foundation in a tightly packed manner restricting the movement of the ballast foundation. Railway ballast binder have a unique ability that it does not absorb water, thereby preventing the rail tracks from getting corroded. Prices of railway ballast binders are on the lower sides, as its consumption is predominately linked with railway track upgradation. Recent years saw multiple advancements in railway systems, where many countries around the world have prioritize to strengthen modes of transport in their respective country. Railway being prime source of transport for many developing & developed economies, have experienced rapid growth in last few decades.
Railway ballast binders, which are used in track foundation on a wide note will experience significant growth in the forecast period. Railway Ballast Binder market is likely to boost ahead with a lower single digit CAGR over the forecast period of 2019-2029. Furthermore, global ballast market is expected to have high growth rate in countries like China and India which subsequently drives the railway ballast binder market.
