Polymeric Sand Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • High Investments in Road Construction – As per recent data, it was calculated that the public spending on highway and street construction in the United States has risen steadily during the last decade. In 2012, the public sector spent approximately USD 80 billion on such projects, which rose to around USD 100 billion in 2021. The urbanization has led the government to invest a lot of funds in the construction of roads and highways. This trend is subsequently anticipated to boost the demand for polymeric sand, as it is mainly used in pavement construction and auxiliary spaces along with roads, airports, and other infrastructure.
  • Increased Growth in Real Estate – As per recent estimates, the revenue of real estate companies worldwide stood at USD 10 billion in 2021.
  • Demand for Construction of Buildings – The construction of building and infrastructures brings the need of paved surfaced for the aesthetic look. Thus, the rising demand for construction processes is expected to bring lucrative growth opportunities for the market’s growth in the forecast period. As per data in 2020, there were 350,000 industrial buildings and 240,000 military buildings in the United States.
  • Rapid Growth in the Chemical Industry – The global chemical industry in the year 2021, generated a revenue of approximately USD 5 trillion.


  • High Costs of Raw Materials - The high costs included in raw materials is expected to pose a challenge, as it becomes difficult for the population with middle income or startups to incorporate polymeric sand in use of varied construction processes.
  • Long Production Cycles
  • Low Level of Awareness Among the Population

Polymeric Sand Segmentation

End-user (Industrial, Residential, Commercial, Municipal)

The global polymeric sand market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-use into industrial, residential, commercial, and municipal. Out of these types of segments, the residential segment is estimated to gain the largest market share over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing number of residential buildings across the globe, owing to the increasing population and the need for housing. As per estimations, in 2020, there were almost 100 million single-family homes in the U.S. Further, there were around 5 million multifamily residential buildings in the same period. Further, the residential segment is forecasted to gather the highest revenue owing to the increased demand for houses by the population, which is expected to increase the utilization rate of polymeric sand while constructing residential projects. In 2020, it was calculated that 90% of the buildings in the U.S. were single-family homes, with approximately 200 billion square feet. Furthermore, there has been a rising trend of smart home across the globe, which is expected to surge the segment’s growth in the market.

Application (Patios, Footpaths, Pool Deck, Pavements & Auxiliary Spaces, Parking Spaces)

The global polymeric sand market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into patios, footpaths, pool decks, pavements & auxiliary spaces, parking spaces, and others. Amongst these segments, the footpaths segment is expected to garner a significant share. As the construction of new roads and the rejuvenation of old roads is rising, as well as the development of footpaths is also spiking. Polymeric sand is used in the construction of footpaths heavily which is further expected to hike the growth of the segment over the forecast period. A footpath is major part of any road or street. Hence, the growth of the segment is directly interlinked with the growth of construction of road, streets, and highways. For instance, India alone was expected to have a road network of about 63,00,000 kilometers in 2019, which was further expected to increase in upcoming years as the government is paying remarkable attention on road construction.
