Global Concrete Surface Retarders Market: Segmentation


The global concrete surface retarders market has been segmented on the basis of material, type, and application.Further, material segment is classified into organic and inorganic agents. Type segment is further sub-segmented into water-based and solvent-based. Application segment is classified into residential and commertial.


Based on material, the market has been bifurcated into organic and inorganic agents. Organic agents accounted for the largest market share of around 60% in the overall concrete surface retarders market, which is also expected to exhibit sustainable growth rate over the forecast period. This is attributed to the broad application used in vertical and horizontal concrete surface retarders across the construction industry.


Based on type, the segment is further classified into water-based and solvent-based. Water-based segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017, which will continue with its position by the end of 2023. Water-based concrete surface retarders are gaining momentum across the globe, owing to the widespread use of water-based concrete surface retarders and their product advantages such as no presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and biodegradability has garnered industry-wide attention.


Based on application, the segment is classified into residential and commercial. Commercial segment holds the largest market share in 2017, which will continue with its position by 2025. The segment is also anticipated to witness maximum growth rate in the market due to the high demand for concrete surface retarders mostly from the commercial construction activities. Rapid expansion of multi-national companies leads to the need for more office spaces which in turn results in increase in commercial construction activities, globally. Hence, commercial segment is projected to contribute significantly over the forecast period.
