In terms of type, the maleic anhydride-based segment is expected to lead the global polycarboxylate concrete admixture market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its superior properties such as high water resistance and long working time. In terms of application, the cement segment is expected to lead the global polycarboxylate concrete admixture market duringthe forecast period.

Global Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A polycarboxylate concrete admixture is a material that is added to concrete in order to improve its properties. Polycarboxylates are able to improve the strength, durability, and workability of concrete. Additionally, they can help to reduce the amount of water that is needed for mixing and placement, which can lead to savings on materials costs.

Maleic anhydride as the main chain:

Maleic anhydride is a chemical that is derived from maleic acid and used as the main chain for polycarboxylate concrete admixtures. Polycarboxylate concrete admixtures are used in construction to provide waterproofing, high-temperature resistance, and strength enhancement to the finished structures.

Acrylic acid as the main chain:

Acrylic acid as the main chain is used in Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture to adjust the water content of concrete. It helps in increasing the plasticity and fluidity of polycarboxylate (PC) thus making it easier to mix with other ingredients. The mixture has high demand from construction companies due to its excellent waterproofing properties, which are essential for roofing systems such as that of metal or wood.

Application Insights:

Cement was the largest application segment in 2015 and accounted for over 60.0% of the global market share. The product is used as a cementitious additive to improve its setting and hardening properties, thereby enhancing long-term performance of concrete structures. Polycarboxylates are also used as an adhesive in precast segments during construction of bridges, which involves the use byproduct consumption rate of 2-5%.

The addition of PCA helps reduce shrinkage cracks on drying out or curing due to its high water affinity property. It also helps enhance durability & strength when mixed with portland cement or fly ash (a mixture containing a large amount of silica) at low temperature range (below 25oC).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global polycarboxylate concrete admixture market in terms of revenue with a share of over 45.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing construction activities mainly driven by growing population and rising disposable income especially in developing countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand among others.

The demand for PCC from Europe was valued at USD X million in 2017 on account of high consumption from several major application sectors including road construction and bridge building along with renovation activities across the region particularly Germany, Italy and France among others which are anticipated to drive industry expansion over the coming years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for better infrastructure: The global population is growing at a rapid pace and so is the demand for better infrastructure. This will drive the demand for Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture as it improves the quality of concrete.
  • Rising awareness about benefits of Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture: There is a growing awareness about the benefits of using Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture in construction projects. This will help to drive its adoption in the market.
  • Technological advancements: The technology used in manufacturing Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture is constantly evolving, which will help to improve its performance and increase its adoption rate.
  • Growing construction industry: The global construction industry is booming and this is expected to continue in the future, driving the demand for Polycarboxylate Concrete Admixture products accordingly . 5
