Germany is set to lead the Europe hydrophobing agents market in the forthcoming years. In fact, as per its German Committee for Reinforced Concrete, the country has mandated that water absorption in concrete materials should be decrease by approximately 50%. Due to this, silicone compounds and oleochemicals are used as water repellents across masonry mortar, grouts, tile adhesive, skim and render coats.

Furthermore, growing investments in the social and economic infrastructure in the region would drive the market trends till 2026. Along with rising investments, ageing constructions and subsequent repair and maintenance efforts would be a key factor pushing the overall market trends in the region.     

With respect to the product segment, the silicone-based hydrophobing agents market is predicted to experience heavy gains. High reactivity and viscosity towards silanol-rich and inorganic surfaces will be the major factor for product adoption. Silicone accounted for approximately 30% of the overall market share in 2018. Silanes make a robust viscous network that bonds covalently to the treated material surface. It provides durability, inhibits corrosion of reinforcing steel and offers chemical and water resistance.

Use of silicone in personal care and cosmetic products would also drive product adoption over the forecast timeframe. Silicone is used in these products since it makes barrier-like coating over skin for water and air resistance.    

All in all, rising investments in infrastructure and stringent regulations are creating better opportunities for the hydrophobing agents market players. Some of the prominent industry players in the market are Peter Greven, Wacker Chemie AG, Rudolf Group, Dow Corning, Zschimmer & Schwarz, Baerlocher GmbH. Rise in the metallic stearates production will also offer a major opportunity for market players.

Hydrophobing agents, which are also known as hydrophobic agents, are used to impart a water-repellent effect on cleaned surfaces. These products have become widely popular in construction applications as they can be used as both as cleaners and subsequently as surface care products. Hydrophobing agents work by increasing the angle of contact and reducing water penetration building interiors and exteriors.

Hydrophobing agent manufacturers as well as research institutions worldwide are exploring ways to make manufacturing more sustainable. In August 2019, a group of researchers at Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad had developed a water-repellent material using fly ash, an industrial waste product. The water-repellent material can be used in anti-fouling, anti-soiling, and self-cleaning paints and coatings used in automotive and construction applications. 

It is estimated that global hydrophobing agents market size will be worth more than US$1.6 billion by 2026. Following are a few notable factors augmenting the use of hydrophobic agents in the upcoming years.
