Growing Construction Activities in Latin America to Boost Joint Compound Industry at a CAGR of 6.3% by 2033

Throughout the projected period, the joint compound industry in Mexico is poised for substantial growth, with a robust Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.3%. In Mexico, the focus on ecologically friendly construction practices and sustainability is on the rise. Manufacturers of joint compounds are aligning with this environmental consciousness by offering products that contribute to reduced environmental impact.

NEWARK, Del, Jan. 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Latin America’s joint compound industry value is expected to increase from US$ 48.6 million in 2023 to US$ 89.5 million by 2033. Over the assessment period, Latin America’s demand for joint compounds is projected to surge at a CAGR of 6.3%.

The use of joint compounds in construction applications is expected to surge the growing need for sophisticated coating materials with the capacity to produce quick and seamless joint finishing. The demand for joint compounds is predicted to rise with the growing need to renovate outdated residential infrastructure and residential development.

Joint compound formulas offer reduced shrinkage, good slip, and improved working properties. These are expected to be used for taping, filling, finishing, and skim coating. The quick and seamless process lowers labor expenses and efforts while improving the product’s quality and appearance, all of which are projected to fuel the industry’s growth.

Government efforts to stimulate the economy, such as significant investments in the construction industry, particularly in constructing sustainable and environmentally friendly buildings, are driving the industry. Rising Latin America’s spending on private construction of residential and non-residential buildings is further propelling the industry. High government investments in renovating the region’s railways, highways, airports, and ports are expected to create ample opportunities for manufacturers.
