Global Grinding Aids Market: Snapshot

Cement grinding aid is added to the additives of cement grinding process, aids in including cement grinding procedure can be a favorable circumstance for betterment, enhance production proficiency without bargaining the execution of cement, the reason for existing is to diminish costs of production and enhance the cement quality.

Grinding aids were first marketed around 40 years back to enhance the fineness of the cement and rise in development rate. Grinding aids are basically the liquid solution detailed as water-based solution of natural compounds with high charge density, for example, esters of glycols, glycols, and carboxylates or alkanolamines. The principle capacity of grinding aids is to somewhat neutralize the charges display on the surface of cement particles, which create amid milling process by shaping a thin film over the molecule.

Grinding aids are fundamentally used to enhance the efficiency and cost viability of production of cement. There has been critical reduction in energy utilization with the utilization of grinding aids. Grinding aids additionally enhances the flowabilty and granularity of the cement. Grinding aids have additionally lessened the coating impact on the grinding media and keeps the agglomeration of particles in the wake of grinding.

Market Outlook

Grinding aids were first commercialized approximately 40 years ago to improve the fineness of the cement and increase the production rate. Grinding aids are liquid solution formulated as water-based solutions of organic compounds with high charge density, such as glycols, esters of glycols, alkanolamines or carboxylates of alkanolamines. The main function of grinding aids is to partially neutralise the charges present on the surface of cement particles, which develop during milling process by forming a thin film over the particle. Grinding aids are primarily used to improve the productivity and cost effectiveness of cement production. There has been significant reduction in energy consumption with the use of grinding aids. Grinding aids also improves the granularity and flowabilty of the cement. Grinding aids have also reduced the coating effect on the grinding media and prevents the agglomeration of particles after grinding.  With the elimination of coating effect the maintenance cost has also been reduced significantly. The grinding aids are available for both raw meal grinding and clinker. According to a study by prominent manufacturers, there has been ~25-30% cost reduction with the use of grinding aids. The overall throughput of the mill has been significantly improved with the use of grinding aids. Grinding aids are doesn’t only improves the grinding efficiency, but also improves several other properties of the composite cement such as strength, settling time, workability amongst others.

Reasons for Covering This Title

The long term outlook for the global Grinding Aids is projected to remain positive expanding with a moderate rate over the forecast period. The growing concerns about the reduction of energy consumption and improve the fineness of the cement particles is projected to drive the demand for grinding aids in the present and future scenario. The significant improvement in mill performance by removal of coating effect has boosted the demand for grinding aids.

Moreover, the growing construction sector especially in the developing countries of Asia Pacific region such as India is expected to boost the demand for grinding aids.  With the use of grinding aid the grinding index (Fineness of the grain/ Total number of grinding cycles required to achieve that fineness) has also been improved thus there has been overall reduction in operation and maintenance costs.

The manufacturers have been focusing on the development of advanced grinding aids that reduces the CO2 emissions during the grinding process. Owing to all the above mentioned benefits, there has been a steady demand for these chemicals.
