Superplasticizer Market Growth

The global superplasticizer market is expected to register a moderate CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023). Superplasticizer is a chemical admixture used where well-dispersed particle suspension is required. These polymers are used as a type of dispersants to improve the flow characteristics of suspensions and avoid particle segregation in concrete applications. Asia-Pacific is expected to have the highest CAGR followed by Middle-East & Africa during the forecast period, while North America accounted the largest share of the market in 2017.

High Demand from Emerging Economies

The growing population in Asia-pacific and the need for improved infrastructure across the region is expected to increase the consumption of concrete admixture. Countries such as India, China, Korea, Vietnam, etc. are not only the largest consumers of these products, but are also the largest manufacturers of most construction chemicals. In addition, steady population growth and huge investments for economic development in these countries are also increasing the demand for residential and commercial buildings. Various projects related to infrastructure have been lined up in such countries that are expected to start during the forecast period. All such factors are expected to drive the studied market during the forecast period.

Usage of Sulphonated Naphthalene Formaldehyde (SNF) is expected to Increase

SNF mainly consist of beta-napthalene sulfonate formaldehyde condensate. These are commonly available as calcium salts or common salts, based on application. These salts are majorly used in special purpose when potential alkali reactive aggregate is used. Owing to their powerful dispersing and water reducing properties, SNF superplasticizers are mostly used as ready-mix or precast applications. In addition, they also offers high strength and self-leveling properties. The raw materials used for the manufacturing of SNF include naphthalene, formaldehyde, sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide. Due to the incredible properties of SNF and easy availability of raw materials, the usage of SNF is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific to have Highest CAGR for the Superplasticizer Market 

Asia-Pacific region is growing at a staggering rate as a result of rapid industrialization and growth in construction sector. Highest population ensures high availability of skilled labor and the region’s geographic location provides easy access to industrial goods markets across the globe. Beside this, huge inflow of investments in the construction sector of countries, such as China, India, Vietnam, Singapore, and Japan has positively impacted the real-estate sector – from residential and hospitality to commercial and industrial developments. All such factors are driving the market for superplasticizers in this region.
