Concrete Plasticizer And Super Plasticizer Market Research, 2031

The global concrete plasticizer and super plasticizer market size was valued at $5.6 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $10.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2031. A concrete plasticizer is water-reducing concrete admixture, which when added to the concrete mix increases the fluidity and the workability of the mix; without the need of increasing the water content in the mix.

Concrete Plasticizer and Super plasticizer Market

Water is an indistinguishable constituent of a concrete mix, which is primarily responsible for binding its other constituent, making it fluid & workable, as well as for the hydration of concrete to make it harder. However, during the curing process of the concrete, water evaporates and leaves shrinkage cracks on the surface, making the cured concrete less strong and durable. To address this issue, plasticizers and super plasticizers are mixed in the concrete mix, as they allow for reduced usage of water while simultaneously improving the fluidity and workability of the concrete mix. This is widely used in concrete applications having inaccessible locations or highly irregular formwork.

Concrete plasticizers and super plasticizers are a few of the most important admixtures of concrete and are used in almost all concrete applications, whether it is for residential & commercial, or infrastructure construction. The exponential rise in global population and urbanization are playing a key role in increasing the number of residential buildings as well as commercial buildings such as office buildings, shopping malls, hospitals, and schools. This has fueled the growth of the concrete plasticizer and super plasticizer market. Furthermore, infrastructures such as bridges, tunnels, elevated highways, and airports are considered the lifeline of any country. Therefore, all the countries especially the developing ones such as India, China, Vietnam, Brazil, and South Africa spend significantly on their construction. Since a large portion of these infrastructures is constructed using concrete, the demand for concrete plasticizer and super plasticizer is estimated to be positively affected.

Major superplasticizer manufacturers such as, Saint-Gobain S.A. (CHRYSO France), Sika AG, and MUHU (China) Construction Materials Co., Ltd., along with others offer a wide variety of superplasticizer to consumers. Moreover, various development strategies are adopted by the superplasticizer manufacturers in order to sustain harsh competition in the market. For instance, in July 2020, Sika AG, launched the first bio-based superplasticizer in the market, using raw materials that are obtained from renewable vegetable substances.

Ready Mix Concrete segment holds dominant position in 2021

On the basis of application, the ready-mix concrete segment generated the highest revenue in 2021, owing to the high demand for ready-mix concrete. Ready-mix concrete is prepared at a concrete mixing facility having competent workers and all the necessary machinery, leading to a highly accurate concrete mix. Therefore, resulting in a better-quality concrete mix. This is a major factor driving the demand for ready-mix concrete.

The novel coronavirus had rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and later became a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic had halted the production of superplasticizers due to lockdown. The economic slowdown initially resulted in reduced spending on various applications of superplasticizers by the construction firms involved in residential & commercial buildings, and the infrastructure sector. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. As of mid-2022, the number of COVID-19 cases has diminished significantly. This has led to the reopening of superplasticizers manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities. Furthermore, it has been more than two years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery.

Analyst Review

The concrete plasticizer and super plasticizer market has witnessed significant growth in the past few years owing to its advantageous features that make the concrete fluid and easily workable, while significantly reducing the water content. The reduction in the water content eventually enhances the strength and durability of the cured concrete, by eliminating excessive shrinkage cracks.

Superplasticizer is widely used in large projects such as mid- and high-rise buildings, bridges, tunnels, and concrete roads. Developing countries such as India, China, Brazil, South Africa, and Vietnam are involved in the construction of various infrastructure projects; thus, a significantly large demand for superplasticizer can be witnessed in these countries. In addition to that, various low- and middle-income countries such as Kenya, Nigeria, and Egypt are experiencing rapid population growth and urbanization, which is resulting in increased demand for residential and commercial buildings.

Moreover, developments in superplasticizer products that enhance their performance are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market growth.
