A new research report by Transparency Market Research offers a comprehensive evaluation of the global waterproofing chemicals market. The study, titled “Cement Additives Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth and Forecast, 2012 - 2018”, is available for sale on the firm’s website.
Cement additives are chemical formulations added to cement or concrete in small quantities to meet the design requirement and functional and aesthetic aspects of civil structures. These additives are used in residential, industrial, and commercial buildings. The major advantages of using additives include improved strength, color, chemical resistance, enhancement of cement properties and reduction in the use of other chemicals and water.

Cement additives can be segmented into mineral additives, chemical additives, and fiber additives. Mineral additives include silica slag, fly ash, and rice husk ash, while chemical additives include normal plasticizers, super-plasticizers, retarding agents, waterproofing admixtures, and other coloring agents. Fiber additives include synthetic and steel fibers. Chemical additives dominate the cement additive industry, contributing nearly 50% of the total production.
The global cement additive market is expected to grow at a considerable rate. The major driving force of the cement additive industry is the growth of the global construction industry. Other factors which contribute to the growth of the cement additive industry are the improving quality of construction, reduction in usage of water, shorter construction time, and savings in labor cost. Government regulations can pose a threat to the industry. Other factors which inhibit the growth of the industry are increasing prices of additives and lack of awareness in the unorganized sector of construction developers.
The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for cement additives and is mostly dominated by the Chinese market. The demand for cement additives is growing in developing countries owing to an increase in cement consumption, rising infrastructure in these regions, incentives for using industrial waste products as mineral additives, and demand for high-grade water reducers. The fiber additive segment is expected to grow at a faster pace over other segments. North America is the second largest market for cement additives followed by Western Europe.
Some of the vendors in the industry include BASF SE, Sika AG, Dow Chemical, AkzoNobel NV, W.R Grace & Co., and USG Corporation.
