The construction chemicals are the chemical formulations added in particular quantity during construction in cement or concrete or other construction material to meet the functional, aesthetic, and design requirement of civil structures. These are widely used in the construction of residential, industrial, commercial, and infrastructure projects. The benefits derived from the use of these construction chemicals include improved durability; strength; chemical resistance; color; reduction in water and cement requirement; enhanced working properties construction materials, resistance to withstand adverse climatic and working conditions as per design specifications/requirements, protection from natural factors, fire/heat and providing pleasant appearance without compromising over quality of the structure. The report describes about three major construction chemicals: concrete admixtures, adhesives and sealants, and flame retardants. The report covers qualitative aspect of construction chemicals and detailed volume (kilo tons) and value ($million) forecasts (2010-2017) of these construction chemicals by types and geography.

The geographic segments include Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of World (ROW). The application segments include residential, commercial, industrial, and infrastructure. The market is derived by studying consumption trends across these aforesaid regions and application segments. The price trends of these chemicals have been analyzed from annual reports of major players. The concrete admixtures are expected to lead the construction chemicals market, followed by adhesives, flame retardants, and sealants. Based on the market share consumption, Asia-Pacific region is the leading construction chemicals market. Europe and North America are listed next to Asia-Pacific in the market share consumption of construction chemicals. Growth is particularly high in emerging countries such as China and India due to increasing population and development demands.

Some of the drivers identified for construction chemicals are increasing requirement of public, commercial, and residential infrastructure triggered by urbanization trend, rapid industrialization Government development plans would help the construction chemicals market to show promising growth in recent future. Also, organizing of sporting events such as Olympics (U.K.), Euro Cup (Poland), and grants to various infrastructure projects in U.S., Canada, and Mexico have helped the construction industry to recover at slow rate in European and North American region respectively. The growth in the market is resisted by established infrastructure in developed countries, unstable economic cycles, and volatility in the raw material sources. The opportunities are cited in utilization of ready-mix concrete (RMC) in developed countries, growing demands for non-hazardous, green and sustainable construction chemicals, and use of carbon nanotubes as flame retardant materials. Repair and maintenance applications will also provide opportunities, supported by favorable growth in residential improvement and repair spending, as well as the gradual aging of the housing stock and the fact that many homeowners enjoy remodeling older homes.

The major players profiled in the report are Axim Italcementi Group (Italy), Albemarle Corp. (U.S.), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), BASF (Germany), CICO Technologies Ltd (India), Henkel (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), and W.R. Grace & Co. (U.S.).

Various primary and secondary data sources such as industry experts interviews, data from research institutes and industrial majors, encyclopedia, directories, and databases are used to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of global construction chemicals market.
