Global asphalt demand through 2009 will improve on recent performance based on a recovery in construction activity in Latin America, Western Europe and Japan, as well as on continued strong growth in China and India. Asphalt emulsions and polymer modified asphalts will grow the fastest.
The study analyzes the 102 million metric ton world asphalt industry. It presents historical demand data for 1994, 1999 and 2004 and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by type (e.g., primary asphalt, paving products, roofing products), and for 6 world regional (e.g., North America, Asia/Pacific, Western Europe) and 20 major national markets (e.g., United States, France, Germany, United Kingdom, China, Japan, India, Brazil).
The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 leading primary asphalt and asphalt product producers including Petroleos de Venezuela, Valero Energy, Marathon Oil, Chevron, BP, Royal Dutch/Shell, Exxon Mobil, and Conoco.
