About the Report

The global RDP powder market is slated to surpass a valuation of US$ 3 billion by 2031, increase in demand of RDP Powder to expand the market at a CAGR of over 7% across the forecast period (2021 to 2031). Majority of growth is expected to be contributed by emerging economies in Asia Pacific, most notably China, amid exponentially increasing infrastructure projects in the recent past as well as planned future projects.

High inclination is exhibited towards vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) RDP powders, given their superior adhesion properties. Also, extensive applications are expected across the waterproofing mortar segment. The report tracks global sales of RDP powder in 20+ high-growth markets, along with analyzing the impact COVID-19 has had on the chemicals & materials domain in general, and RDP powder demand in particular.

How Do Historical Trends & Future Projections Compare?

Over the years, the global construction industry has witnessed unprecedented gains, with both non-residential and residential projects receiving significant impetus. Hence, industries are demanding stronger adhesives to make robust construction material, thus heightening market growth prospects.

Growth received significant stimulus amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, mostly across China as it experienced a massive upsurge in both public and private infrastructure development projects. Furthermore, growth will experience tremendous incline as stringent VOC emission norms compel governments to introduce highly sustainable adhesive solutions.

How is Demand for Enhanced Adhesion Fueling Demand for RDP Powder?

RDP powders are extensively used to improve adhesion, workability, and flexibility of cement renders. Attributes such as thixotropicity and hydrophobicity of RDP powders are gaining popularity. In order to reduce efflorescence in cement renders for exterior and wet interior applications, manufacturers are boosting their production capacities to meet end user requirements.

Different applications such as exterior finishing render and interior base coat render are fueling growth of the RDP powder market. Manufacturers are innovating in high quality RDP products with multipurpose properties suitable for standard render dry mixes.

How are Green Buildings Increasing RDP Powder Uptake?

Heightening energy costs combined with implementation of stringent environmental regulations with respect to construction activities is prompting key players to invest in cost-effective and environmentally-friendly residential and non-residential buildings.

RDP powders help attain this objective by helping enhance durability, tensile strength, impact resistance and flexibility of mortars, plasters, insulating systems and architectural paints. Additionally, RDP powders help curb VOC emissions to a very large extent, heightening their popularity.

Will High Risks During Spray Drying Restrict Uptake of RDP Powder?

RDP powders employ spray-drying of aqueous mixture of stabilizers and polymers. During the process, dust particles are exposed to high temperatures, causing dust clouds, with spontaneous combustion reactions becoming frequent. This can elevate risk of explosions and decomposition reactions, posing serious risk to health of the workers.

Moreover, such smoke may cause irritation in the eyes, nose and throat. At a macro level, such explosions give rise to carbon monoxide and particulate matter, which pose serious environmental risks. However, manufacturers are seeking out more sustainable production approaches, which will offset such hazards in the future.

Country-wise Analysis

What are the Expansion Prospects for RDP Powder in the U.S.?

Stringent regulations concerning volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions is principally driving enhanced uptake of RDP powders across key industries in the US market. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates VOCs at the Federal Level through the National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards for Consumer and Commercial Products.

It covers VOC emissions from such compounds as aerosol coatings, architectural coatings, automobile refinish coatings and consumer products respectively. Consequently, various industries are investing in high grade RDP powders to enhance their manufacturing processes.

Why is China an Attractive Investment Destination for Key RDP Powder Manufacturers?

China represents a lucrative destination for prominent RDP powder manufacturers for forthcoming years, primarily attributed to an exponential increase in the domestic construction segment. While demand was already inclining in the historical period, it especially received major stimulus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of its stimulus plan to combat the economic uncertainty, China has invested in several large-scale infrastructure projects, including doubling the size of its high-speed rail network. Such massive projects are naturally stimulating demand for robust adhesive material, including RDP powder.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Why is Demand for Vinyl Acetate Ethylene (VAE) Surging?

Based on polymer type, vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) RDP powder held the lion’s share as of 2019, attributed to factors such as high adhesion, increased heat resistance, low VOC emissions and excellent scrub resistance.

For field operations, VAE RDP powder offer significant advantages with respect to handling, storage and field mixing, while enhancing water retention, functionality, workability and mechanical strength, while simultaneously reducing permeability of cementitious materials.

Will Waterproofing Mortar Emerge as Primary RDP Powder Application Area?

Demand for RPD powders in waterproofing, self-leveling, thermal insulation and cement-based plaster manufacturing is rising due to their superior water repellency characteristics. These powders reduce capillary water absorption in cement-based building products.

Celanese Corporation’s ELOTEX® RDP polymer powders, for instance, facilitates application of flexible waterproofing membranes on substrates which are difficult to coat. The resulting polymer-modified membrane is resistant against chloride and sulphate ions, carbon-dioxide and other aggressive media.

Why is the Residential Sector Generating High Demand for RDP Powder?

Based on end-use industry, the residential segment accounted for bulk RDP powder demand, attributed to an increase in the number of residential construction projects in the wake of rapid urbanization and population explosion.

Moreover, the need for renovating obsolete structures is also stimulating demand across major reconstruction projects. Simultaneously, non-residential projects are also generating heightened demand amid the rising need for public infrastructure such as hospitals, schools & colleges, universities and industrial buildings.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent expansion strategies of major RDP powder manufacturers rely on capacity expansion initiatives along with offering new product lines among some of their marketing strategies. Notable developments include:

  • In October 2020, Wacker Chemie AG invested around US$ 100 million to expand its integrated production site at Nanjing, China. This will enable the facility to augment its polymer manufacturing capabilities, especially high-quality binders for the construction segment
  • In March 2021, Nouryon introduced LumaTreat TM, a global patent-pending smart-tagged polymer line of products providing a breakthrough in the water treatment domain, offering fluorescent monomers which attach to a deposit controlling agent
