Waterproofing admixture is a porous material generally used as a construction material for reducing water permeability. These admixtures reduce water permeability by different ways, which include reduction in the size of capillary pores, their numbers, and continuity inside the concrete structure or by blocking the capillary pores of concrete, or it may line the capillary pores with hydrophobic materials. Waterproofing admixture finds its use in wide range of applications such as building & construction, public infrastructure, and commercial space among others.
Rise in infrastructure requirements in developing economies, improving construction industry, and increased urbanization are the major key drivers of water admixture market. Low maintenance cost and increased floor durability also fuel the market growth globally. However, there are several restraints across different regions such as mature infrastructure, logistic issues, low cement production, and low investments in infrastructure sector.
