Construction chemical additives are chemical formulations, which are used in construction of residential, non-residential buildings. These are specialty chemicals, which help increase the durability and strength of the structures being constructed. Major types of additives being used are concrete admixtures, water-proofing compounds, leveling agents and sealants. The concrete admixtures are again divided into plasticizers, super plasticizers and air entraining agents. The major advantages attributed to the usage of these additives include concrete stabilization, slump reduction, waterproofing, water reduction and improving the overall strength of the construction. Construction chemical additives have a wide range of applications including residential, non-residential, infrastructure and renovation.

The Construction Chemical Admixtures (CCA) Market volume is forecast to grow by 9.7% between 2015 and 2020. Concrete admixtures held the majority share with more than 70% for the fiscal year ending 2015. By 2020, the market share of concrete admixtures is estimated to witness an upsurge due to an increasing awareness among people and falling prices. Furthermore, waterproofing compounds accounts for third largest share, in terms of volume, when compared to other additives being used. Leveling agents are anticipated to grow at a CAGR 11.7% due to increasing infrastructure construction. As leveling agents are the highly used additives among infrastructure segment because of the kind of aesthetics they provide to the building.

The global market for CCA in 2015 was $39.5 Billion and is dominated by APAC region, which is poised to exhibit the fastest growth due to favorable macroeconomic conditions such as population growth and financial conditions like increasing FDI investments.
