Construction Additives Market by Type (Chemical (Plasticizers, Air-entraining, Waterproofing, Retarding agent), Mineral, Fiber), End-use Sector (Residential, Commercial, Infrastructure), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Construction additives market projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.95%”
The construction additives market size is estimated to be USD 20.70 billion in 2017 and projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.94% to reach USD 28.95 billion by 2022. The market is driven by factors such as the increasing urban population, increasing industrialization, and large-scale investments in the commercial and infrastructure sectors. The construction industry is evolving continuously; huge differences are witnessed in the structures built today as compared to the ones built over a decade ago. The changing lifestyles, rapid urbanization trend, and the demand for enhanced aesthetics for residential, commercial, and infrastructure have forced architects and engineers to innovate the design of concrete structures suited for various applications and requirements. On the flipside, tight project completion deadlines and the increasing variable costs of construction present a challenge for efficient execution of the construction projects. Construction additives offer the benefits of high quality, increased efficiency, and better finishing. Lack of awareness regarding construction additive techniques and their benefits, along with unstable costs of raw material might restrain the demand for this type of construction technique.
“The chemical segment held a larger share of the construction additives market”
The chemical segment is estimated to dominate the construction additives market and is projected to be the fastest-growing type during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to factors such as keen interest from contractors and builders in using chemical additives across residential and commercial construction sectors, due to various properties such as enhancing the workability of the concrete, reducing the required quantity of cement, making concrete economic, and imparting strength to the concrete.
“Asia Pacific region is expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period”
The Asia Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. The major factor driving the growth of the market is the large-scale government investments in the infrastructure sector in this region. Additionally, the increasing population and rising income accelerate the per capita spending on construction. The markets of China and Japan are projected to be lucrative due to their ongoing and upcoming infrastructural construction projects as well as the rising consumer spending on the construction sector.
