Plasticizer Concrete Admixtures Market: Introduction
Plasticizer concrete admixtures are powders or liquids added before or during the mixing of concrete. They can enhance the concrete quality, durability and workability, accelerate or retard the setting time and manageability, among the other properties as per the desired requirement. Plasticizer concrete admixtures are used to solve problems such as early strength requirement, hot/cold weather situations and pumping requirements and achieve lower water to cement ratio. Plasticizer concrete admixtures are used for the modification of the properties of fresh as well as hardened concrete. They are also used for the prevention or reduction of settlement to reduce segregation and increase the pumpability and penetration of concrete, mortar or grouts. Plasticizer concrete admixtures also reduce the slump loss rate. They also provide water as well as corrosion resistance and are commercially produced from organic polymers such as lignosulfonates, sulfonated naphthalene & sulfonated melamine. Apart from this, plasticizer concrete admixtures can also be produced from polycarboxylate ethers and some plasticizer concrete admixtures are classified as potential endocrine disruptors, which is a safety concern.
Plasticizer Concrete Admixtures Market: Dynamics
The escalating pace of industrialization and urbanization is leading to the growth of building and construction industries in developing countries around the globe. The rapid growth of building and construction industries is leading to an increase in the demand for plasticizer concrete admixtures to achieve improved infrastructure quality. Also, the launch of various governmental projects in various countries across the world has boosted construction on a global scale, owing to which there is a rise in the plasticizer concrete admixtures market.
