A latest market intelligence study digs deep into the global bridge expansion joints market and fetches key information through structured market research. The report gauges the market and predicts the future demographic and changes. Based on the findings specified in the report, the market is expected to witness rising demand for bridge expansion joints from construction firms and government sector over the coming years. Escalating demand for bridge expansion joints in developing regions is projected to drive the global bridge expansion joints market.

The estimated value of the bridge expansion joints market in 2018 is $849.6 mn and the market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% and reach $1,445.9 mn by the end of 2028. In addition, the bridge expansion joints market is projected to create incremental opportunity worth $596.3 mn during the forecast period.

Increasing investments for infrastructural development across the globe will act as a catalyst for the overall growth of the bridge expansion joints market during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing construction activities in developing regions, such as SEA & pacific, are estimated to fuel the growth of bridge expansion joints market over the forecast period.

On the flip side, one of the key challenges faced by the manufacturers of bridge expansion joints is that the upper layer of steel expansion joints corrodes when exposed to salts or de-icing salts. This is anticipated to be the primary factor hampering the growth of the bridge expansion joints market over the forecast period. Moreover, bridge expansion joints require high logistics cost due to their heaviness, which is another factor anticipated to act as a restraining factor for the growth of the bridge expansion joints market in near future.

Market insights suggests that the overall size of the global bridge expansion joints market will expand over the forecast period. Several positive changes are expected to fuel the growth of the global bridge expansion joints market.

By region, China is projected to dominate the global bridge expansion joints market over the forecast period. China, followed by Western Europe, is estimated to remain the most opportunistic region in the bridge expansion joints market. In terms of value, China is projected to create incremental opportunity worth $130.9 mn in the global bridge expansion joints market during the forecast period. Middle East & Africa (MEA), followed by Latin America, are projected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period in the global bridge expansion joints market.

By type, the closed type expansion joints segment is projected to dominate with a value of $371.9 mn in 2018. However, the open joints segment is projected to account for more than 40% share in the global bridge expansion joints market during the forecast period. In terms of growth, open type bridge expansion joint segment is projected to grow with modest growth rate during the latter half of the forecast period.

By application, the roadway bridges segment is projected to dominate the global bridge expansion joints market. In terms of volume, the demand from roadway bridges segment is projected to be pegged at 12,604 ‘000 meters by the end of 2028. In terms of value, the railway bridges segment is projected to create incremental opportunity worth $118.8 mn in the global bridge expansion joints market over the forecast period. Under the application segment, the roadway bridges sub-segment is expected to grow with remarkable growth rate in the global bridge expansion joints market owing to increasing roadway network in developing regions.
