Concrete Admixtures Market Overview


Concrete Admixtures are manufactured or natural chemicals added during the mixing of concrete to enhance certain specific properties of the hardened or fresh concrete. These properties uplift the workability, early as well as final strength and durability of the concrete. Along with that, it adds chemical stability and causes water reduction in the mix. The admixtures for concrete provide protection from corrosion and also prevent cracking or shrinking. Moreover, the admixtures not only benefit in water reduction but also aids in slowing down the setting rate of concrete. Thus, it reduces the overload of workers while constructing the structures.


The main functions of these admixtures are that they are plasticizers, air entrainers, best for waterproofing, accelerators as well as retarders. As a plasticizer, the concrete admixtures provide immense workability by reducing water content, and as air entrainers, it allows air bubbles in cement paste while mixing to elevate its resistance to freezing or thawing. In addition, accelerators and retarders admixtures reduce the time for the concrete mix to set. The waterproofing admixtures have the ability to absorb not only water but also waterborne contaminants as it is porous. All these beneficial features of admixtures are boosting the global concrete admixtures market demand.


Over the years, the rising demand for infrastructure in developing nations has escalated the need for the concrete admixtures market. Moreover, the increase in income of the middle class and rapid urbanization has created a demand for residential and industrial construction to a whole new level. Thus, this higher requirements of people and inclination for better construction has propelled the global concrete admixtures market growth. Even the government policies for better infrastructure standards and required reduction in water usage during construction are certain concerns that can be resolved by the effective usage of admixtures.
