In recent years, China's sponge cities, urban integrated pipeline corridors, new infrastructure investment, house repairs and old renovations have continued to expand, which has promoted the rapid growth of market demand for the waterproofing membrane industry, and China's waterproofing membrane industry has entered a stage of development.
Waterproof membrane is a rollable sheet-shape waterproof material, used in building walls, roofs, tunnels, highways, landfills, etc., to resist the leakage of external rainwater and groundwater. In recent years, with the development of the national economy and the continuous growth of the construction industry, China's waterproofing membrane industry has developed rapidly, with the continuous increase of new materials and new processes, and the significant increase in production capacity. The product quality of some key enterprises has reached the international advanced level.
Most of China's waterproof building material companies are waterproofing membrane manufacturers. According to the statistics of the China Building Waterproof Association, the number of companies above designated scale of China's waterproof building materials (main business above 20 million RMB) from 2016 to 2020 is fluctuating. In 2018, the number of waterproofing enterprises above designated size in China reached 784, it is the maximum number in recent years.

According to the data released by the China Building Waterproofing Association, in 2019, the cumulative sales income of 653 waterproof building materials companies above the designated size (main business income above 20 million RMB) was 99.043 billion RMB. From January to December 2020, there were 722 companies. The cumulative sales revenue of waterproof building materials enterprises above designated size (main business income above 20 million RMB) was 108.7 billion RMB. It is an increase of 4.6% over the same period in 2019.
(Sales revenue of waterproof building materials enterprises above designated size in China, 100 million RMB)
According to data released by the China Building Waterproofing Association, in 2019, China's waterproof building materials and waterproofing membrane products accounted for the largest proportion, reaching 63.76%. According to this calculation, the size of China's waterproofing membrane market in 2019 is 105.2 billion RMB, and it is estimated that the amount of China's waterproofing membrane market will exceed 110 billion RMB in 2020.
(2014-2020 The scale of China's waterproof membrane market)
At present, the application of waterproofing membrane is mainly in residential and civil buildings, followed by infrastructure. Waterproof materials are mainly used in roofing, underground, kitchen and bathroom, external walls and other parts in housing construction, of which roofing and basement account for the highest proportion; The facilities are mainly used in railways, rail transit, bridges, tunnels, underground pipe corridors, airports, reservoirs, water conservancy and other fields.
