Limited use of certain products in developing regions due to abundance of other resources and use of harmful raw materials in the product are some factors which could restrain the growth of concrete surface treatment chemicals market in the coming years.

Market, By Product

The concrete surface treatment chemicals market is categorized, based on product, as curing compounds, mold release agents, sealants and others. Mold release agents occupies the largest market share in the global industry and is likely to grow by a CAGR of more than 7% over the forecast timeframe. Mold release agents help in avoiding the adhesion of freshly placed cement to a forming surface.

Water-based mold release agents would gain greater importance in the coming years due to its environmental benefits. Other functions of mold release agents include minimizing the occurrence of blowholes, providing a better surface finish along with minimum loss of water from the cement.

Sealants held a considerable share in the market in 2018. The product is majorly used in the residential and commercial end-user industries to seal cracks in floors and walls and for protection against water, moisture and dust. Developments in the global construction industry coupled with growing population in the developing regions will drive the concrete surface treatment chemicals market segment’s growth in coming years.

Market, By End-user

Based on end-user, the market is segmented into residential, commercial, industrial and municipal. Commercial is the largest end-user section which is likely to gain by more than 6% CAGR during the forecast timeframe. Extensive usage of the product by the commercial end-users like office buildings, retail outlets, garages, hospitals, institutions, etc. for repairing and maintaining the quality of the concrete will drive the concrete surface treatment chemicals market growth.
