Construction chemicals are chemical formulations used with cement, concrete, or other construction materials at the time of construction to hold the construction material together. The quality of cement has improved extensively with the utilization of the development of synthetic substances. Construction chemicals have become one of the important components of the chemical industry playing an important role in global infrastructure development. Improved development prospects in the construction business imply that numerous global organizations have begun contributing to creating advanced development of chemical products. 

Construction Chemicals Market Dynamics

Increasing construction activity, increasing adoption of innovative construction and growing government developments are the key drivers that are boosting the market growth. The growing awareness among architects, builders, contractors, and owners, that construction chemicals help in improving the quality and performance of construction will help the market to boom in the future. The rising formation of mega-cities, increasing living standards and population has a demand for quality construction work which will drive the construction chemical market. ASEAN infrastructure spending and GDP average growth rates are gradually rising over the past few years.
Governments are investing heavily in infrastructure and housing development. Government policies that promote the use of energy-saving materials and environment-friendly specialty chemicals in construction are driving the demand for environment-friendly performance chemicals, such as waterborne coatings.

Rising government and foreign investments in mega projects in Asia-Pacific are encouraging chemical manufacturers in the region to make a strong push toward incorporating sustainable and technologically advanced materials in concrete admixtures, waterproofing, and industrial flooring. The government of India is initiating to invest in construction through different policies. India is one of the fastest-growing markets by country. The increase in the use of ready-mix concrete (RMC) is increasing the demand for construction chemicals. The use of RMC in construction is around 7% of domestic cement demand and is expected to rise from 20% to 25% in the future. The demand for construction chemicals will be intense in Southeast Asian countries such as the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia, which are enjoying high investments in large-scale infrastructure and commercial projects.

High prices of construction chemicals, strict government regulations, and lack of skilled labor are the key restraints to market growth. The presence of various small-scale manufacturers that produce low-value products would compensate for the increasing prices of construction chemicals. On May 14, 2018, BASF Japan Ltd. increased the sales prices for all construction chemical products in small packages by over 10%, including a price review and restructuring for air-entraining agents and air-controlling agents for concrete admixtures.

Construction Chemicals Market Segmentation

Based on type, the market for Global construction chemicals is classified into concrete admixtures, protective coating, industrial flooring, waterproofing, adhesives & sealants, grinding aids, and others. Concrete admixtures accounted for the largest market share with 25% total in the year 2018.  The global construction chemical market for concrete admixtures was worth $13,880 million in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period. Admixtures are natural or manufactured chemicals added to the concrete before or during mixing. The use of admixtures in concrete is increasing rapidly in recent years owing to its associated physical as well as economic benefits. The growing demand from consumers for better product quality has led to increased investments by companies in the R&D sector which has led to the launch of new concrete admixture products. For instance, in 2017, GCP Applied Technologies Inc. launched two new concrete admixtures, OPTEVA™ HE and TAVERO™VM, to deliver higher-performing, lower-cost cement production.

Based on application, the market for Global construction chemicals is broadly segmented as commercial, infrastructure, and residential. The commercial sector is the largest market segment due to massive public and private investments in commercial high-rise buildings, recreational, institutional, and government facilities, public works projects, retail outlets, and business office facilities. The global construction chemicals market for the commercial sector was valued at US$ 24,922 in 2018. This segment is also anticipated to witness the highest growth rate throughout the forecast period. The Commercial Construction segment consists of commercial high-rise buildings, recreational, institutional, and government facilities, public works projects, retail outlets, and business office facilities. The increasing construction of office spaces, hotels, and retail outlets has driven the demand for the application of construction chemicals for extended durability of building structures and protection against chemical attacks.

Construction Chemicals Market Geographical Analysis

The global construction chemical market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. The North American construction chemical market was worth $5312 billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $YY billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. This region is further categorized by region into the US, Canada, and Mexico. The US will witness an increase in construction investment and rapid technological advancements by key market players, which will help boost sales revenue for construction chemicals. The construction chemicals market in Canada is also expected to achieve a healthy growth rate buoyed by the presence of massive business opportunities in the construction of roads, highways, rehabilitation housing projects, and maintenance and repair projects of existing building structures.
