Construction Chemicals, as the name suggests, are the chemical compounds used in construction activities, be it residential, non-residential or non-building. These compounds belong to a niche specialty segment of the chemical industry and can be used either in existing construction projects to speed up the work or in new construction projects to impart durability and strengthen the structures.
The benefits of using construction chemicals are far more than the increase in the cost of the project which is 2-5%. Certain chemical products help in minimizing the quantities of cement and water used in the construction. These compounds impart chemical as well as physical properties in applications such as cross-linking or phase change (from liquid to solid). Construction chemicals are essential for high quality concrete and for promoting the improvement of concrete performance. They also increase the life of construction work and impart additional protection from environmental hazards.
The construction chemicals market has witnessed a high growth in the past few years which is estimated to increase in the coming years. This growth is largely fueled by the growth of the construction industry, technological advancements, and growing demand in the infrastructure sector. The global market for Construction Chemicals estimated at US$19.9 billion in 2015 and forecast to reach a projected US$33.7 billion by 2022.
