Global Cement Additives Market 2017-2021

Global Cement Additives Market 2017-2021

About Cement Additives

Cement additives are used to improve various properties of cement such as chemical resistance, strength, color, water reduction, waterproofing, and others. These additives are used in both residential and non-residential building and construction applications. Cement additives, including cement dyes, are chemicals designed to improve the properties of cement. These additives prevent the shrink of cement during drying causing cracks. The cement additives industry is an energy consuming and capital intensive. The global cement additives market, while constituting a small portion of global industry output, has been growing at a promising rate.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cement additives market to grow at a CAGR of 4.40% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cement Additives Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cement additives market: BASF, Sika, The Dow Chemical Company, USG Corporation and W.R. Grace.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AkzoNobel, Bekaert, China National Bluestar, Halliburton, Kao Corporation, LANXESS, OMNOVA Solutions, Schlumberger, Stoncor and TITAN Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovations in cement. Advances in technologies have led to improvements in the production volumes of cement manufacturers. However, the higher production volumes have also increased air pollution across the globe. The primary reason for air pollution in the cement business includes excavation activities, conveyer belts, crushing mills, and kiln emissions.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for plasticizers. Sulfonated naphthalene formaldehyde, polycarboxylic acids, sulfonated melamine formaldehyde, lignosulfonates, and others are some of the widely used plasticizers in cement. These are added to concrete to reduce the water content to achieve a certain degree of workability. With the increase in paste quality, the concrete mixture acquires higher compressive and flexural strength, increased resistance to weathering, lowers volume change from drying, reduces permeability, improves the bond between concrete and reinforcement and wetting, reduces shrinkage cracking tendencies, and other related properties.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increase in construction costs and lack of skilled workforce. The construction industry uses materials such as stainless steel, hardened steel, cast iron, cement, concrete, bricks, aggregates, and others. The cost of cement accounts for about 1%-15%, the cost of steel accounts for 8%-10% and other materials account for 25%-30% of the total cost incurred for construction. The availability of these materials creates a cycle of variable pricing wherein the increase in the prices of one building material increases the total cost of construction, thereby increasing the overall construction costs.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
