Advanced Building & Construction Sheets: Ensuring Strength & Flexibility

Growing requirement for eco-friendly construction materials owing to rising awareness towards conservation of conventional materials are anticipated to propel demand for advanced building and construction sheets. Such sheets are likely to offer durability, flexibility, and resistance from heat & harmful ultra violet (UV) rays. In addition, growing adoption of water and sound proofing in commercial and residential buildings can also fuel demand.

New Exfoliation Technique to Offer 2D Metal Sheets

Major product variants of building and construction sheets are rubber, bitumen, metal, and polymer. The polymer segment is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.6% on account of several mechanical properties such as high tensile strength and corrosion resistance. The metal sheets segment is also expected to witness significant growth in the coming years owing to availability of wide range of metal deposits. In addition, high durability of metal components is also likely to fuel demand for metal sheets in construction sector.

Considering the rising demand, most companies and research teams are focusing on R&D to develop advanced techniques of creating better metal sheets. For instance, a group of scientists at Rice University in Texas, Indian Institute of Technology in India, and Bruker NanoSurfaces in Minnesota recently unveiled a unique method to exfoliate two dimensional metal sheet. This new method is likely to allow manufacturers to make metal sheets from low-melting alloys and pure metals.

Market Insights

The global building and construction sheets market  is expected to reach USD 195.15 billion by 2025, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising adoption of atactic polypropylene owing to its useful properties such as UV resistance, flow resistance at high temperature, and flexibility at low temperature can drive market growth. Stringent government policies towards conservation of traditional products such as metal and wood can fuel growth of the market. High demand for polymer and metal sheets in industrial and residential applications can propel market growth in the coming years. Growing number of construction activities owing to increasing development in infrastructure can foster growth of the market during the forecast period 2017 to 2025.

Some of the leading companies offering quality building and construction sheets are Atlas Roofing Corporation, Paul Bauder GmbH & Co. KG, Fletcher Building Limited, Etex, and GAF Materials Corporation.
