Concrete Admixtures Construction Chemical Market size is forecast to reach $17.4 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 7.7% during 2021-2026. With the rise in the construction sector, the demand for concrete admixtures construction chemical industry is expected to grow during the forecast period. Concrete admixtures are added to the concrete that can help control the set time and other aspects of fresh concrete. Few of the common admixtures includes accelerating admixtures, retarding admixtures, air entraining admixtures, superplasticizers, waterproofing agents, and others. The growing public interest towards housing its repair works will further enhance the overall market demand for concrete admixtures industry for the period. Whereas, calcium chloride was present in the concrete admixtures and later on added to the concrete, which helps the concrete to sets quickly. However, steel corrosion in concrete is attributable to calcium chloride. So, there is fear or hesitation among the contractors while mixing the concrete admixtures in the concrete as there is a chance of corrosion, owing to this the quality of work comes into question and hence calcium chloride has high risk of corrosion which will restrain the market growth for concrete admixture.
The worldwide crisis of COVID-19 is leading to calls for action from a wide range of stakeholders including manufacturers, vendors, distributors, and consumers. Decline in business for at least five months during 2020 coupled with lower demand from a few major markets has put pressure on the profitability of concrete admixtures manufacturers and vendors. However, the negative impact of COVID-19 on concrete admixtures to be compensated over the medium to long term future period. In addition, the pandemic has forced builder and contractors to delay or cancel various construction projects which has led to a million and billions of losses. According to the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) infrastructure projects totaling more than $9.6 billion have been either delayed or cancelled in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Concrete Admixtures Construction Chemical Market Segment Analysis – By Admixture Type
High Range Water Reducing segment held the largest share in the concrete admixtures construction chemical market in the year 2020 and is expected to grow at a revenue CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. High range water reducing concrete admixtures are also called as superplasticizer, it helps in reducing water content by 12 to 30 percent and can be added to concrete with a low-to-normal slump and water-cement ratio to make high-slump flowing concrete. The use of superplasticizers produces high strength concrete (strength up to 22,000 psi). Superplasticizers can also be utilized in producing flowing concrete which can be used in a heavy reinforced structure with inaccessible areas. Another benefit of superplasticizer is that, it helps in initial setting time and can be accelerated or retarded, up/down to an hour earlier or later according to its chemical reaction. Thus, the growing demand for superplasticizers is expected to drive the demand for concrete admixtures.
Concrete Admixtures Construction Chemical Market Segment Analysis – By End Use
Residential has been the primary market for concrete admixtures in the year 2020 and is expected to grow at a revenue CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period. Concrete admixtures play a key role in residential constructions by increasing the durability and setting time for concrete. According to the census of U.S in November 2020, privately-owned housing units authorized by building permits in November were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,639,000. This is 6.2 percent above the revised October rate of 1,544,000 and is 8.5 percent above the November 2019 rate of 1,510,000. So, with the increasing constructions for various kinds of residential houses, the demand for construction chemicals tends to increase, this factor leads the growth of concrete admixture in the upcoming years.

Concrete Admixtures Construction Chemical Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
APAC dominated the concrete admixtures construction chemical market in the year 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. Japan and South Korea are the major regions in Asia-Pacific that are dominating the concrete admixtures construction chemical market. Japan is a large, technically sophisticated construction market and a key location for advanced infrastructural properties, owing to which the concrete admixture manufacturing companies are increasingly expanding their portfolio and manufacturing plants in the country. For instance, in September 2018, a state of the art concrete admixture plant has been opened by GCP Applied Technologies in Atsugi, Japan. The manufacturing facility replaced capacity previously produced at GCP’s Darex plant. The investment improved the quality of production while incorporating the new protection and environmental safeguards. Such business plans coupled with the expanding construction industry is substantially increasing the demand for concrete admixtures in APAC, which is eventually driving the market growth in the country during the forecast period.
Concrete Admixtures Construction Chemical Market Drivers
Growing Construction Industry
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region as a whole is united in experiencing substantial economic and population growth – a trend which is set to continue over the coming years. Against that background, the Asia Development Bank has reported in October 2019, the total infrastructure needs in the region will grow from US$2.8 trillion (baseline estimate) to US$3.1 trillion (climate-adjusted estimate). This works out to an annual investment need of US$184 billion to US$210 billion. The need for large scale projects involving energy, road, rail, water, and other infrastructure will continue to drive demand in the construction sector, which would contribute further to the growing demand for concrete admixtures construction chemical market.
Removal of Formwork in Short Period of Time
Formworks are usually not removed until the concrete has sufficiently hardened in order. In normal circumstances (generally where temperature is above 200°C), and where ordinary concrete is used, it takes almost 24-48 hours for walls, columns and others, to remove the form. Similarly, for different construction structures the time varies accordingly. Whereas the use of concrete admixtures in the cement or concrete enhances specific properties of the fresh or hardened concrete, such as workability, durability, or early and final strength. This eventually decreases the time of hardening concrete and hence this saves both money and time of the builder. So, with the increasing use of concrete admixtures in major construction projects especially for bridges, tunnels and others, the concrete admixtures construction chemical market is expected to rise in the upcoming years.
Concrete Admixtures Construction Chemical Market Challenges
Increase in Drying Shrinkage
Drying shrinkage is contracting of a hardened concrete mixture due to the loss of capillary water. This may cause an increase in tensile stress, which will eventually be led to cracking, internal warping and external deflection. Drying shrinkage is dependent upon various factors which includes the properties of the components, proportions of the components, mixing manner, amount of moisture while curing, dry environment, and member size. However, it is mostly occurred because of the reduction of capillary water by evaporation and the water in the cement paste. The amounts of water and admixtures used during mixing sometimes have direct and indirect effects on drying shrinkage of concrete. So, in the upcoming time drying shrinkage may become a matter of concern for the growth of concrete admixtures globally.
