Superplasticizers are primarily used as concrete admixtures to manufacture high strength concrete in all applications. The choice of a superplasticizer is quite technical and depends on the end-user. Concrete superplasticizer exhibit high water reduction and high strength properties. These properties can be enhanced with an addition of different technologies within the same product to enlarge the characteristics from chemicals, or among chemicals within the same group. These superplasticizers make construction highly familiar and economical. The ability to withstand huge constructions at low costs makes superplasticizers efficient in several applications. There are five types of superplasticizers on a major scale, namely, SNF, SMF, MLS, PC, and others.

The concrete superplasticizer market is driven by the range of applications, which increases the R&D efforts to make superplasticizers highly resourceful, along with the huge demand from the infrastructure industry due to increased population that finds superplasticizers useful in a myriad of applications. Growing advancements and technological inventions in superplasticizers would be quite effective in the future. Superplasticizers have been well perceived in various dominant end-user markets in the last few decades and are expected to be used for green house buildings in the near future.

Globally, Asia-Pacific region dominated the concrete superplasticizer market revenue in 2012. China, India, Brazil, UAE, and U.S. are the major countries with a huge demand for superplasticizers. Asia-Pacific's superplasticizers market for end-use applications is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2013 to 2018, which is far higher than that of North America.

Market players concentrate on expanding their geographical reach. Other development strategies adopted by the market players are new products launch, agreements & collaborations, and mergers & acquisitions. The superplasticizers market is contemplating on executing high research activities to create new compounds to minimize costs and environmental hazards. One of the major problems is the price range that makes choosing the material very difficult and hard, so as to derive optimal cost effectiveness.

The report analyzes the market on the basis of material types, penetration of each superplasticizer in each major region, and every end-user market. It also covers the market behavior of leading producers, key developments, and strategies implemented to sustain and succeed in the market.
