Concrete admixtures are the ingredients which are added to the concrete mixture before or during mixing. Concrete admixtures reduce the concrete construction cost by modifying the properties of the hardened concrete, thereby, ensuring better quality during mixing, transporting, placing, and curing. Thus, they overcome the emergencies that occur during the concrete operations. On the basis of function, these chemicals are categorized into water reducing, retarding, accelerating & super-plasticizing, and viscosity modifier. The demand for concrete admixtures is increasing at a rapid rate during the forecast period.
The United States is the second-largest global producer of construction chemicals, after China. The growing infrastructure in the United States, which is one of the major consumers of construction chemicals, is driving the market. The infrastructure industry in the United States grew at 5.94% in 2016. The gradual growth of the commercial sector, primarily office space construction, is likely to have a positive impact on the market.
