Global Bitumen Market: Growth Factors

The prime factor that augments the global market growth is the growing government initiatives for development of the roads across the world. Additionally, the increasing road traffic is creating the terrible need for roads that are wider in size, thus consequently boosting the global demand for bitumen. The flourishing construction industry across the globe favors the growth of the market. The growing government investments for upgrading the public infrastructure and rising disposable income of citizens are increasing the construction activity which in turn increases the demand of bitumen. The healthy growth of the paint and coatings sector supplements the growth of the market. Paints that are manufactured using bitumen provide exceptional corrosion traits and weatherproofing. The factor that is affecting the market negatively is the stringent regulatory environmental regulations that are imposed on the manufacturing and application of bitumen. Manufacturing of bitumen includes fractional distillation of crude oil. Thus, the variable prices of raw material are impacting the growth of the market negatively.
