“Inorganic Minerals/Clays accounted for the largest share in the hygroscopic building material market in terms of value.”
The inorganic minerals/clays segment dominated the overall hygroscopic building material market, with a share of 34% in terms of value, in 2021. The market size of the inorganic minerals/clays segment was USD 268.5 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 376.3 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2022. The segment dominates the market due to their increasing demand for concrete as well as structural applications owing to their superior hygroscopic properties, ease of availability, and low cost.
“Dewatering additives is the fastest growing construction material application of hygroscopic building material.”
Dewatering is defined by the MPCA Construction Stormwater General Permit as “the removal of surface or groundwater to dry and/or solidify a construction site to enable construction activity.” Construction sites often have pits, trenches, or low-lying areas, whether from the site’s existing topography or from excavated areas that can fill with water. This water often needs to be removed and discharged from the area to allow work to continue and to prevent damage and accidents to the structural integrity of the site. Hygroscopic materials such as polymers, alumina, and clays are widely used as dewatering additives in the building & construction industry to remove excess water using chemical processes.
“North America is estimated to be the second-largest market for hygroscopic building material”
