Construction chemicals are specialty chemical compounds that are used in construction activities. These chemicals are added to construction materials such as cement, concrete, coatings, and others, where they provide high strength and durability and increase the construction work and give additional protection from environmental hazards. Construction chemicals have major applications in enhancing the performance of concrete and also provides benefits to less usage of water and cement during the construction activities.


Growing Awareness Regarding Green Construction Will Have a Significant Impact on Market Growth
The growing awareness on environmental hazards caused by conventional buildings and change in government policies globally, are the key reasons for construction chemicals adoption specially for buildings activities. Some major players in the construction industry are focusing on underground structure protection with green and sustainable materials, polycarboxylate ether based green admixtures, thermal insulation, overall building protection, cool roof treatment and others, which will play a vital role towards sustainability.
Chemicals used in the construction sector increases the overall cost, though it is more beneficial to the environment. Construction chemicals add more strength and corrosion resistance to the infrastructure, and they also bring down the cement and water volume used during construction process. Moreover, major purpose for adoption of construction chemicals is that it enhances the performance of buildings such as structural tapes, thermoset hot melts, and multi-purpose adhesives. The judicious use will change the global residential and non-residential market and will have a positive impact on the environment.


Changing Dynamics of Construction Industry Are Expected to Significantly Impact the Market.
Growing construction industry in developing economies is expected to support the growth of construction chemicals market primarily driven by growing new construction and repair & rehabilitation sector. High demand for residential and non-residential structures in China, India, and South Korea due to high population growth rate shall drive the industry growth. This demand has also increased the consumption rate of cement, which in turn, have caused a high demand for various construction chemicals such as concrete admixtures, cement additives, and adhesives & sealants.

Introduction to better product offering for improving performances is anticipated to drive the growth of the global construction chemicals market during the forecast period. These products include specialty cement additives, silicon caulks, polymer-based grouts and mortars, and others. The construction chemicals also provide technological advantage that enhances performance and endurance of structures while reducing corrosion. Corrosion prevention is also a driving factors for market for construction chemicals, where chemicals comprising of floorings, surface coatings, corrosion inhibitors, concrete admixtures, repair mortars, and grouts & sealants are used to protect the surface from corrosion.

Growing Urbanization Trend in Construction Industry is Expected to Aid Market Growth
Many emerging markets are experiencing high rate of urbanization due to increased migration to rapidly developing cities. Rise in per capita disposable income and improved standard of living shall foster the overall market demand. New residential and non-residential structures will be constructed to fulfill the growing demand caused by urbanization. Structures such as movie theaters, shopping centers, hospitals, and restaurants, in addition with the residential structure. This will augment the growth of this market.


Governmental regulations over VOC emissions on the construction industry
Construction chemicals are used during building activities may lead to VOC which are harmful and can cause common health problems such as skin irritation, asthma, nausea, confusion, headaches, and eye irritation. Many construction chemicals used in residential segments contain dangerous VOCs, such as formaldehyde, acetone, and butanol which are emitted through acoustic ceiling tile, solid wood, caulking sealant, and floor wax. Governmental regulations over use of construction chemicals due to VOC emission acts as a restraining factor for construction chemicals market growth.


By Type Analysis

Concrete Admixtures Dominated the Global Market
Based on type, the market is segmented into concrete admixtures, flooring chemicals, waterproofing chemicals, repair & rehabilitation chemicals, and others. Cement is widely used as a binding material within construction, cement added with crushed rock, water and sand in precise quantity to produce concrete. Concrete admixtures are then added to improve the properties of concrete. They provide benefits such as low cement water ratio, improved setting time, prevent settlement, reduce segregation, Improve pumpability. Growing construction industry in China, India, UK, and Germany is causing the high usage of concrete admixtures, which will cause growth of the construction chemicals market.

Flooring chemicals are usually epoxy and polyurethane based. These chemicals are used for various applications to improve the load impact, abrasion, moisture penetration, chemical attack, aesthetic appeal, strengthening of damaged floors.

Water proofing chemicals are designed to stop water infiltration. Water proofing chemicals are added for waterproofing of concrete during the construction process as maintenance and preventive waterproofing ingredients. Repair & rehabilitation is the reconstruction of the structure parts which are damaged. These chemical includes epoxy based repair mortars, rust removers, and anticorrosion products.

By Application Analysis

The Non-Residential Segment to Aid Dominance of the Segment
In terms of application, the market is segmented into residential and non-residential. Among these non-residential segment dominated due to growing infrastructure development. Demand for commercial buildings, bridges, roads, dams, and tunnels is further driving the market growth.
