Market Dynamics

The U.S. mortar and admixtures market is primarily driven by various factors such as an increase in the construction of new residential and commercial buildings such as apartment buildings, hospitals, schools, office buildings, and many others. In addition, an increase in investments in the repair and maintenance of old buildings and infrastructure and rise in spending on home renovation activities are also positively affecting the U.S. mortar and admixtures market. For instance, various old structures are susceptible to various wear and tear over time. Maintenance is crucial to address issues such as plaster flaking, water seepage, and structural cracks caused by wear and tear. Furthermore, the population in the country increased from 331,721,294 in 2021, to 334,375,357 in 2023, a rise of 0.8% in two years. The rapid population growth in the U.S. further strains the existing infrastructure, necessitating renovations and expansions to accommodate the increasing population. For instance, according to the ASCE’s (American Society of Civil Engineers) 2021 Infrastructure Report Card published by the American Society of Civil Engineers, as much as 42% of nearly 617,000 bridges in the U.S. are more than 50 years old, and about 7.5% of the total bridges are considered structurally weak. Additionally, according to the Conditions and Performance Report from the Federal Highway Administration, around $14.4 billion annually are spent on bridge rehabilitation, which is expected to increase to $22.7 billion annually so that efficient rehabilitation work can be done in a justifiable timeframe.  

Furthermore, the expansion of the U.S. mortar and admixtures market is also highly dependent on the construction of roads, airports, bridges, tunnels, and other infrastructure driven by the rising population and urbanization in the U.S. Additionally, in November 2021, the federal government of the U.S. approved the $1 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, also known as Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). This act has allocated funds of more than $1 trillion for the construction of new infrastructures, and repair & rehabilitation of the old infrastructure including roads, bridges, tunnels, railroads, electric grid, communication infrastructure including antenna towers, and many more. These large-scale construction and repair & rehabilitation activities are anticipated to drive demand for various types of mortars and admixtures for construction and repair. 

However, the fluctuating cost of raw materials used for manufacturing mortar and admixtures is expected to restrain the market growth. Even if the manufacturer does not increase the price, it is expected to affect the profitability of the company involved in making mortar and admixtures and their components. In addition, various other costs associated with the construction have also increased such as increased interest rates, expensive labor, and high energy prices, which are also having a negative impact on the U.S. mortar and admixtures market growth.

Moreover, the rising demand for sustainability in the construction sector is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the key market players that are involved in the manufacturing of sustainable construction materials. Sika USA, along with many other companies operating in the U.S., offer a wide range of sustainable mortar and admixtures in the country. 

The U.S. mortar and admixtures market witnesses various obstructions in its regular operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and inflation. Earlier, the global lockdowns resulted in reduced construction activities, eventually leading to reduced demand for mortar and admixtures. However, COVID-19 has subsided, and the major manufacturers in 2023 are performing well. Contrarily, the rise in inflation is a new major obstructing factor for the entire industry. The inflation, which is a direct result of the Ukraine-Russia war and few long-term impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, has introduced volatility in the prices of raw materials used for manufacturing mortar and admixtures. In addition, inflation is expected to worsen in the coming years, as the possibility of ending of the war between Ukraine and Russia is less. Moreover, the cost of construction has risen substantially, discouraging builders from initiating new projects, which is also expected to negatively affect the U.S. mortar and admixtures market growth. In addition to that the federal reserve bank (Fed) is also continuously increasing the interest rate to curb inflation. For example, the federal reserve bank announced its ninth-straight interest rate hike of 25 basis points in March 2023.
