Concrete Admixture Market
Concrete Admixture Market

The global Concrete Admixture market was stood around $15 billion in 2020 and is expected to demonstrate the growth of around 8% during the forecast period (2021-2027). The global demand of most widely used materials after water i.e., concrete is growing on account of growing construction sector in emerging and developing nations. Infrastructure development plays a crucial role in the economic growth therefore governments in developing countries like China and India are launching various projects resulted in the increasing demand of concrete. For instance, India is building world-longest expressway of length 1,380 kilo meters (km) between Delhi and Mumbai which is likely to be completed by 2023. Around 80 lakh tons (8 million tons) of cement will be consumed for the project, which is approximately 2% of India’s annual cement production capacity. As a result, the demand of key components used in the making of concrete is also increasing.

COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global concrete admixture market owing to halted construction activities to curtail the spread of disease. Globally, governments had taken stringent measures to curb the spread of disease, resulted in the nationwide lockdown in some countries while many countries closed the national borders. Since, several countries are dependent on import, thus border closure halted the globally supply chain, as a result affected the admixture market in a negative way.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, air entraining admixture category like to showcase robust growth during the forecast period”

Based on type, market is categorized into air-entraining admixture, water-reducing admixture, retarding admixture, accelerating admixture, plasticizers, and others. Among these, air-entraining admixture is likely to showcase significant growth during the forecast period. It is used in the concrete mixture to introduce bubbles during the concrete mixing process to reduce the segregation of concrete mixture. Thus, improves the performance of concrete. Further, air-entraining admixtures can enhance the anti-freeze ability and durability of concrete.

“Among form, liquid category held prominent position in 2020.”

Based on form, the market is bifurcated into liquid and form. Of both, liquid held the significant share in the market in 2020 and is expected to showcase considerable growth during the forecast period

“In 2020, Asia Pacific captured significant portion of pie owing to large number of construction activities and growing population”

For better understanding of the market, the report provides detail analysis for major region and country including North America (US, Canada); Europe (Germany, UK, France, Spain, rest of Europe); Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, Rest of Asia-Pacific) and Rest of World. Asia Pacific held the major share in the admixture market owing to large consumption of concrete in the regional countries due to large number of residential and non-residential construction activities. Countries like China consumed around 2.28 billion tons of cement in 2019. Since, much of the cement used in the concrete, thus a large quantity of admixture is also required to produce a specific type of concrete. Some of the major companies operating in the global Concrete Admixtures market includes SIKA AG, BASF SE, GCP Allied Technologies, RPM International Inc., Fosroc International Inc., Mapei Inc., CICO Technologies Ltd., CHRYSO S.A.S., Concrete Additives and Chemicals Pvt. Ltd., and Rhein Chemotechnik GmbH, among others.
