    Market Highlights

    The Waterproofing Sheet Membrane Market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period to reach a value of US$ 29.3 billion in 2028.

    Sheet membranes are a popular choice for application areas exposed to extreme stress and moisture. It has tough and thick membranes featuring strong adhesion properties to bond to most surfaces. Sheet membranes are designed to provide a barrier against water and other liquids. They are easy to install and compatible with various building materials. The membrane's performance is critical to its ability to withstand hydrostatic pressure, resist punctures or tears, and provide long-lasting protection against water intrusion. Sheet membranes should be selected based on the specific needs of the building and the intended application.

    The waterproofing industry has witnessed an increasing use of self-adhering sheet membranes due to their ease of installation and reduced labor costs. These membranes have a pre-applied adhesive layer that eliminates the need for separate adhesives. Besides, there is also a growing interest in prefabricated systems, which are gaining popularity due to improved quality control and a reduced risk of errors during installation. Sheet membrane dominates the overall waterproofing market with an estimated share of more than 65% on a value basis.

    The waterproofing sheet membrane market is witnessing an upward growth trajectory, driven by a multitude of factors, including increasing demand from the construction industry, heightened awareness regarding efficient waterproofing, innovative technological solutions, stringent government regulations, escalating demand for eco-friendly alternatives, expanding infrastructure projects, and rapid urbanization. Furthermore, waterproofing sheet membrane demand is triggered by several factors, including its ability to offer uniform thickness, high strength, ease of installation, low cost of installation, and quick installation time. 

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions:

    The market has recorded a fair number of M&A activities over the years.
