Increasing Construction Activities
Concrete admixtures reduce the concrete construction cost, by modifying the properties of hardened concrete, ensuring better quality during mixing, transporting, placing, and curing, thus, overcoming most emergencies during concrete operations. According to the European Construction Industry Federation (FIEC), construction activity in the whole of EU grew by 2.2%, in 2016 compared to 2015, reaching a total of EUR 1,278 billion. The Dubai Expo 2020, which is set to take place over the six-month period between October 2020 and April 2021, is estimated to attract more than 25 million tourists; this is expected to propel the construction market in Dubai. Additionally, FIFA World-Cup in Qatar (2022) is anticipated to provide significant demand for admixtures in construction activities. The National Infrastructure Plan 2014-18 of Mexico involves the development of roads, housing, water, health, and other infrastructure segments in the country. Development of railway infrastructure in Argentina with a planned investment of approximately USD 17 billion by 2023 and many Greenfield projects are also in place.
Plasticizers - The Fastest-growing Product (chemical admixture) Type
Plasticizers help in reducing water requirement and make concrete strong and workable. Plasticizers are generally organic or a combination of organic and inorganic substances that help reduce water content for workability. The quantity of plasticizers added is about 0.1% to 0.4% by weight of cement. This amount reduces 5% to 15% of the water requirement and also leads to the increment of workability from about 3 to 8 cm slump. A plasticizer, in general, entrains less than 2% air. Thus, with the growing demand for conservation of water resources, the usage of plasticizers is rapidly increasing.
The Asia-Pacific Region to Lead the Market
Under the 13th five-year plan (2016-2020), the Chinese government is planning for an infrastructure development of 30,000 km of railway lines and 30,000 km of expressways. The Indian government has declared a target of USD 376.5 billion investment in infrastructure over a period of 3 years, including USD 120.5 billion for developing 27 industrial groups and USD 75.3 billion for road, railway, and port connectivity projects. In Australia, Forrest field Airport Link is expected to get USD 490 million worth investment, USD 261 million for Perth Freight Link, and USD 115 million for continuing work at the Western Sydney Airport. The market for concrete admixtures in South Korea boosted, due to the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, Gangwon province held in February 2018, with the government investing USD 10.8 billion to construct new stadiums and other associated infrastructure. All these factors would rapidly drive the market for concrete admixtures in the Asia-Pacific region in the forecast period.
Major Players: Sika AG, Dow Chemical Company, W.R. Grace, RPM International, and BASF, amongst others.
