The waterproofing industry is forecast to significantly grow over the next five years due to emerging and expanding markets. Supply chain issues, however, have plagued the construction industry, and other sectors, resulting in new and serious challenges.
Developers, consultants and architects are feeling the effects of these disruptions.
Companies like EPRO have been able to still provide top-quality waterproofing solutions despite current challenges. Partnering with us can help you to deliver value for your clients, and gain the insight and confidence needed for your professional reputation.
Let's take a closer look at the industry and how EPRO can be a source of support, guidance, and a solution for waterproofing needs.
What Are the Challenges in the Waterproofing Industry in 2021?
The ongoing supply chain issues have created a “domino effect,'' which means no trades are immune. In the commercial waterproofing industry, and in other areas of construction, these are some of the specific challenges coming to light:
Late Deliveries of Materials
Delays in delivery times can be one of the most frustrating and disruptive results of waterproofing industry supply chain issues - and sometimes this can be down to a single type of material arriving late.
Labor shortages often lead to extended project timelines. If less-qualified workers are hired in response to labor shortages, then projects may not be completed as quickly or to the expected level of quality.
Supply chain issues affect the general availability of specific materials and delivery timelines. The ideal materials are often unavailable from suppliers, as importing them from overseas may no longer be possible. To keep to project timelines, companies may begin substitute materials with others that are less than ideal.
Alternatively, timelines can be extended to hold off on work until the correct materials are available. Choosing between insufficient materials and delayed projects is unpleasant, and it can negatively affect customers and clients who may become unsatisfied and blame developers, builders or architects.
