Concrete Admixture Market size is set to surpass USD 26 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The global concrete admixture market growth is owing to the ever-increasing applicability of these admixtures in varied applications, ranging from residential and non-residential to commercial buildings. Admixtures not only reducing the cost of concrete construction but also in enhancing the qualities of concrete.
The application segment consists of residential, non-residential, and commercial infrastructural facilities. Admixtures are used in the vicinity of these concrete to boost their efficacy. The residential sector includes building single-unit & multi-family dwellings, quad-plex, duplex, and apartments. The rising population in APAC and the Middle East has positively affected residential construction spending in these regions, in turn, adding to the overall market demand.

The water-reducing concrete admixture market segment held around 50% of revenue share and is anticipated to witness 6.4% growth rate till 2027. Water-reducing admixtures reduce the water content of a concrete mixture by about 5% -10%. Subsequently, concrete with a water-reducing admixture requires less amount of water compared to untreated concrete. This further results in a higher tensile strength concrete with a limited amount of cement. Furthermore, recent advancements in technology have led to the development of a different class of mid-range reducers. These admixtures can reduce water content by up to 10% and provides stability over a wider range of temperatures.
The other segment accounted for 0.9% of the concrete admixture market share in 2020 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.3% through 2027. The other segment includes hydration control agent, slag, rice husk ash, and corrosion inhibitor and shows a decent growth rate over the forecast timeframe. Corrosion-inhibiting admixtures fall under specialty admixture that slows the corrosion of reinforced steel. These inhibitors substantially reduce renovation and maintenance costs of reinforced concrete structures throughout their service life of 35 – 40 years.
