The global bitumen market size is expected to gain momentum owing to its increasing demand from the construction sector during the forecast period. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™ in an upcoming report, titled, “Bitumen Market, 2021-2028.” As a result of increased government expenditures to boost local infrastructure, the sector is witnessing sustained expansion globally. Compared to developed economies, spending on infrastructure operations is predominantly driven by developing nations to keep up with expanding economic activity and shifting demographics. For instance, government efforts such as the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), which includes the development of houses for impoverished people in both rural and urban regions, are expected to enhance demand forward.
