Superplasticizer Market Introduction
Superplasticizer is also referred to as a high range water reducer. Superplasticizer is a synthetic polymer and a chemical additive that is extensively used in the construction industry for applications such as concrete strengthening. Superplasticizer is highly preferred when well-dispersed particle suspension is required in the concrete making. Therefore, the market for superplasticizer is expected to grow with flying numbers as the demand for superplasticizer is drastically increasing from the construction engineers. The global superplasticizer market is segmented on the basis of form which includes powdered and liquid forms of superplasticizer. Furthermore, the offerings of global superplasticizer market can be categorized into different types such as Lignosulphonates, and Sulphonated Melamine Formaldehyde (SMF) among other types of superplasticizer that offer different properties to the concrete.
Superplasticizer Market Dynamics
Superplasticizer Market Drivers
The global superplasticizer market is expected to be driven by the excessive demand for superplasticizer from the construction industry. The adoption of superplasticizer is considered as one of the important improvements in the concrete technology. According to the Timetric’s Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) and Bureau of Labor Statistics, the construction industry is expected to be one of the prominently growing industries by the end of 2020. An increasing construction of institutional buildings such as offices, educational institutes, healthcare and other commercial buildings across the globe has significantly created a demand for the construction materials and the admixtures used in the construction applications. Therefore, it is expected that the demand for superplasticizer will grow, especially from developing economies where construction activities are at their noteworthy pace.
Superplasticizer Market Restraints
The global superplasticizer market is significantly restrained by the cement-superplasticizer incompatibility. It refers to the adverse effects caused to the cement or building when an inadequate combination of superplasticizer and cement is used. Some common problems that are included in the cement-plasticizer incompatibility are delayed setting, inordinate cracking and improper strength gain. However, this restraint can be efficiently overcome by the production of project specific superplasticizer that is compatible with the specific type of cement used in the construction.
Superplasticizer Market Trends
Sulfonated melamine formaldehyde (SMF) type of superplasticizer that is derived from the resinification of melamine formaldehyde is relatively costlier than other types of superplasticizer. Also, this type of superplasticizer is recommended in applications where high initial slump is required and the concreting time is relatively short. Furthermore, this type of superplasticizer is considered suitable for cold climates. For this reasons, this type of superplasticizer is extensively being used in cold climate regions. Therefore, sulfonated melamine formaldehyde segment of superplasticizer is expected to create considerable amount of revenues over the forecast period, which is expected to increase the global superplasticizer market value.
