Asphalt is a black colored and semi-solid binder obtained from petroleum distillation residue. Manufactured at an average temperature of 150 to 180C, asphalt is very durable and tear resistant. It is mainly used in road construction, parking lots and driveways because it binds crushed stone and aggregates to solid and concrete surfaces such as roads and sidewalks. Smooth laid asphalt helps to minimize fuel consumption and emissions in vehicles and contributes to safety through better grip on the wheels.

Rapid urbanization around the world is one of the major factors driving the growth of the market. With the increasing population, there is a huge demand for asphalt shingles used for roof waterproofing. In addition, asphalt serves as a more cost-effective and sustainable alternative to conventionally used concrete in construction. In addition, the increasing use of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavements (RAP) in residential and commercial driveways, parking lots, and school and playgrounds is catalyzing market growth. It is also used as an emulsion to reconstruct highway surfaces and old sidewalks. Moreover, the increasing demand from the industrial sector for low slope roofing products such as modified bitumen membranes, mop asphalt and roll roofing is further driving the growth of the market. Other factors such as the growing demand from the oil and gas industry, the increasing need for industrial modernization and the increasing adoption of emulsified asphalt along with polymer modified asphalt are also creating positive prospects for the market.
