Bitumen Market Growth

Bitumen market is a rapidly growing industry with demand from various regions of the world. It is a combination of highly viscous organic liquids soluble in carbon disulfide which consists of extremely condensed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Naturally occurring bitumen is a tar-like form of petroleum which is dense, thick, and heavy, and it needs to be heated or diluted before being allowed to flow. Bitumen mostly contains sulfur and heavy metals which includes vanadium, mercury, lead, chromium, nickel, and other toxic elements. Rising demand for infrastructure development and improved roadways is driving the global bitumen market forward. With the growing population, the demand for infrastructure development and improving the standard of living is anticipated to aid the market growth of the bitumen market within the forecast period. Falling oil prices have led to a scarce scarcity in the supply of raw materials used in the production of bitumen.

This has caused fluctuation in subsequently, the prices are being subjected to fluctuations owing to the uncertainty surrounding the global crude oil prices, which could is expected to be hampered the restraining factor for the growth of this the industry global bitumen market. The environmental regulations imposed on the manufacture and usage of bitumen could restrain the growth of the market. The long supply chain is another restraint for the bitumen market as bitumen is a strong product to handle. On the other hand, large contractors have been supplying the raw materials directly to the refineries in several regions across the globe. This is expected to unwrap new opportunities for the players operating in the global bitumen market.
