Latex Caulk Market By Resin Type (Acrylic Latex Caulk, Acrylic Latex Silicone Blend Caulk, Vinyl Latex Caulk), By Application (Residential Buildings, Non-Residential Buildings, Industrial) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The global market for latex caulk was valued at US$ 285.3 Mn in 2017 and expected to reach US$ 424.6 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Asia Pacific accounted for the dominant share in 2017 and expected to retain its position throughout the forecast period.

Caulk is a material that is used to fix gaps and cracks in doors, pipes and plumbing, concrete, roofing and kitchen tiles among others. Caulking controls water penetration, lowers noise transmission and provides thermal insulation. Latex caulk is gaining rapid acceptance over silicone caulk due to its ease of application in non-porous and porous surfaces and they are widely used to seal hard gaps. Growing construction industry coupled with rising repairing and remodeling activities across the globe is one of the key factor fuelling market growth for latex caulk. The construction industry is fairly prominent in countries such as U.S., China, India, Japan and Germany. The global construction industry is expected to witness a growth of approximately 3% in the coming 4 years. Asia Pacific is expected to continue dominating the global construction industry led by China, India and Japan. The construction industry in the emerging markets for South-East Asia is driven by heavy investment in new infrastructure projects through public and private investments. These factors signify strong growth of the latex caulk market in Asia Pacific in the coming years. Further, the construction industry in the U.S. is majorly supported by the residential sector and is expected to garner steady growth during the forecast period.

Moreover, rising trend of DIY (do it yourself) for repairing activities in the residential sector is another key factor fuelling the demand for latex caulks. Consumers nowadays prefer to deal with small repairing activities among themselves rather than seeking expert advice that would cost more. The trend of DIY started off with renovation of rundown and affordable homes and the trend has surged in recent times. However, fluctuations in the prices of raw materials is a key factor restraining the growth of the latex caulk market. The prices of resins are majorly dependent on the prices of crude oil. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has a major influence on oil prices. OPEC controls more than 40% of the global oil supply and is responsible for influencing the price of oil and gas by regulating the production levels. Further, gap in the demand and supply of oil also results in volatile oil prices.
