Construction Chemicals Market Overview:
Construction Chemicals Market was valued at $27,162 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $40,154 million by 2022, supported by a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period 2016 ‐ 2022. Construction chemicals are specialty products that are crucial for sustainable infrastructure and energy conservation in construction industry to increase durability of buildings, and to provide added fortification from environmental hazards.
Infrastructure is the most attractive segment in the world construction chemicals market. It would be the first preference for new entrants due to surge in population and urbanization that drives the need for sustainable infrastructure and environmental friendly products. Chemical products such as concrete admixtures similarly help in minimizing the quantities of cement and water generally required during the construction.
The construction industry accounted for $8.7 trillion in 2013, 10% of the global GDP. The essential dynamic here is that while global GDP is expected to grow by an average of 3.5% per year for the next 12 years, construction output will increase by 4.3% per year. Hence, the construction industry is expected to represent a much bigger part of the global economy by 2022. The global GDP is expected to achieve $83 trillion mark by 2022, and the construction industry can be projected to reach $12.7 trillion.

Construction chemicals are crucial for sustainable infrastructure and energy conservation in construction industry. The global construction chemicals market is segmented based on type as concrete admixtures, waterproofing & roofing, repair, flooring, sealants & adhesives, and others. In 2015, the concrete admixtures segment occupied highest share of 38% in the market. Admixtures are used during the first stage of construction. Ligno-based, SNF (Sulfonated Naphthalene Formaldehyde) & SMF (Sulfonated Melamine Formaldehyde)-based and PCE-based are the three types of admixtures mostly prevalent in the market. Ligno-based admixtures were the first generation admixtures with lower performance as compared to SNF & SMF- and PCE-based admixtures. PCE-based admixtures are the third-generation admixtures and are usually 3-4 times more expensive than SNF & SMF-/Ligno-based admixtures. The Asia-Pacific region has the highest consumption rate for admixtures owing to the huge number of infrastructure projects undertaken.
By end-use, the market is divided into residential, industrial/commercial, infrastructure, and repair structures. Construction chemicals are required to meet the requirements of the burgeoning world population and the incumbent urbanization. In industries, construction chemicals are necessary for stability and durability of the structures. Infrastructure is crucial to any economy, particularly emerging markets, as their growth rate is high. Construction chemicals are widely used in residential infrastructure, owing to the rise in demand for housing and domiciliary buildings in urban areas. The repair segment is relatively less explored in this market, though this end-use of construction chemicals is critical towards the maintenance of structures globally. Residential and infrastructure end-use segments collectively accounted for nearly 60% of the market share, in volume, for the year 2015.
CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY VS. GDP, 2013-2022
Geographically the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The rapidly growing economies in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA have tremendous potential for construction chemicals, as the fast growing urbanization is necessitating the growth of residential complexes and buildings are in high demand in response to the perennial urbanization globally. Construction firms initiate comparatively larger number of residential projects with high-grade construction materials to provide improved structural integrity and sustainability. Asia-Pacific and LAMEA regions are foremost in these ventures due to high urban displacement.
China is the leader in APAC market consuming nearly 17% of the global construction chemicals, other high development regions include Japan and India. The residential and infrastructure segments of the market dominate in this region owing to the unremitting growth of urban demographic and better infrastructure
