Overview of the global roofing insulation adhesives market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global roofing insulation adhesives market to witness impressive growth at a CAGR of around 8% by 2021. One of the major factors responsible for the growth of this market is the exponential growth in the construction industry. In the construction and infrastructure industry, roofing insulation adhesives are primarily used for insulation purposes. These insulation adhesives are made of polyurethane, bitumen, and other materials. Roofing insulation adhesives provide high-energy efficiency, thermal insulation, and are chemical resistant. These properties make them ideal for use in both external and internal insulation applications. Moreover, properties such as, high mechanical strength, light weight, long shelf life, ability to perform in all temperatures, lower curing time make the roofing insulation adhesives a preferential choice for their use in flooring and roofing of building.  

In terms of geography, the Americas accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years. North America is the major revenue contributor, and this is attributed to the significant growth in the residential and non-residential sectors. Also, government initiatives toward sustainability of energy-efficient buildings are propelling the demand for insulated roofing. For instance, according to the New York State Green Building Construction Act, all buildings (including retrofits and new construction) that adhere to the green building standards will be eligible for a tax credit. The increasing

Overview of the global organic pigments market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global organic pigments market to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% between 2017 and 2021. Organic pigments have peculiarly unique properties that ensure hues that other kinds of pigments fail to produce. They are used to provide metallic finishes and elastic properties. Owing to superior property, organic pigments are highly preferred in specialized applications in the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), refinished, and high-end automobile industries. Organic pigments are also being used to improve aesthetics and the functional values in both paints and plastics segments. These pigments are used in paints that can protect against harsh weather, dampness, corrosion, fungi, and other destructive influences on the building. Moreover, some of them are also used as a plasticizer dampened powders that allow functional advantages such as light reflection, heat reflection, opacity, and gas and vapor barrier. With paints and coatings with low VOC content gaining prominence, the market for organic pigments is expected to witness massive growth during the forecast period. 

In terms of geography, APAC is the largest and dominating region in the global market due to the presence of several manufacturers who offer pigments at lower costs in comparison with other regions. APAC is anticipated to lead the market in terms of consumption over the next four years due to increase in infrastructural activities that require paints and coatings with functional benefits. Moreover, the sustainability factor of organic pigments is expected to drive the overall market globally throughout the predicted period.

Overview of the copper pipes and tubes market in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA)

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the copper pipes and tubes market in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 5% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the distinct properties of copper over other metals. Copper has excellent corrosion resistance, heat transfer capability, and machinability. It has a higher conductivity than aluminum and is more ductile with relatively high tensile strength. Also, it can be easily soldered.  Copper requires less maintenance and has a significantly higher lifespan than aluminum and steel tubes. Furthermore, copper has the strength which is required to withstand fluid pressures in large air conditioning systems. These advantages of copper over other metals will significantly propel the growth of the copper pipes and tube market over the next few years.

In terms of geography, Europe accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years. In Europe, the major use of copper pipe is in hot water installations. Germany has the highest demand for copper tubes in the region. The main customers for plumbing copper tubes are distributors, retailers, and wholesalers that sell these copper tubes for plumbing application to the installers and other end consumers. With the introduction of plastic and compound tubes, the demand for copper pipes and tubes in Europe is declining.
