The product primarily minimizes concrete construction expenditure. It ensures the quality of concrete during curing, mixing, transporting, placing; and alters the properties of hardened concrete to overcome emergencies during operations.

Recent developments in the modern infrastructure industry have propelled new potential uses of the product. They significantly improve durability, workability, and acceleration or retardation of setting time. Rapid rate of urbanization observed in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific and the Middle East are mainly impacted by migration and natural population increase in the regions.

With the rising migration of people towards urban areas, there is a strong need to develop residential homes, which will have positive impact on the construction industry, and thereby a significant impact on the concrete admixtures market in the coming years.

Concrete admixtures offer several environmental benefits, such as reduction of high carbon components of concrete, without affecting its overall properties. The rising governmental regulations are likely to boost the concrete admixture demand in the building & construction industry as it plays a vital part of protective coatings.

Product prices are on the rise with escalating freight and logistics costs along with rising raw material cost for basic and intermediate chemicals. For instance, BASF has decided to increase prices for PCE based polymers (raw material) for concrete admixtures in Europe in September 2018. With an increase in the raw material prices of the product, it will have an immediate impact on the product price trends. These trends are likely to hamper the overall concrete admixture market size in the coming years.

The product segment consists of major type of concrete admixtures such as superplasticizers, plasticizers, retarders, accelerators, water reducers, silicate fume etc. Water-reducing admixtures held more than half of the overall revenue share in 2018 and is likely to grow with 5.9% CAGR till 2026. They are utilized to obtain specified concrete strength with low cement proportion, which result in lower carbon dioxide emissions and energy usage per volume of concrete. Persistent need to save water in construction industry has propelled demand for such admixtures.

Commercial construction activities to lead the application segments

Application segment consists of residential, non-residential, and commercial infrastructural facilities. Commercial segment accounted for around 37% revenue share in 2018 and will grow at 6.2% CAGR till 2026. Mushrooming of airports, IT parks, medical centers, education hubs, retail shopping centers, and shopping malls driven by improved living standards, rising tourism culture, will significantly drive the market.

For instance, China is undergoing construction of the biggest airports in the world. Positive growth indicator in construction and renovation industry on account of increasing consumer spending power will subsequently boost the overall concrete admixture market growth over the projected timeframe.

North America concrete admixtures generated around 1.9 billion in 2018 and is likely to grow at 3.4% CAGR till 2026. Construction industry in the region is majorly engaged in restructuring and remodeling activities as opposed to new construction activities. Engineering & construction spending in the U.S. is growing at 6% in 2018, which was up from 5% as witnessed in 2017, which includes both non-residential and residential segments.

Stable employment rates, wage improvements, inventories, and tax restructure are responsible for driving short term demand for single family residential places. On the other hand, ongoing rise in e-commerce, gas prices, and interests continue to shape commercial spending on infrastructural projects such as warehouses, distribution centers, commercial complexes, etc.

New product development and increasing production capacity to emerge as a key strategy for industry players

Industry players are highly focused towards new product development and increasing the number of manufacturing facilities to meet the growing demand and strengthen their market share. For 2018, BASF launched instance, In January a new concrete admixture technology named Master X-Seed 55, which is equipped to improve concrete strength and durability.
