World demand for cement and concrete additives is projected to increase 8.3 percent annually to $15.8 billion in 2015. Gains will be bolstered by cement markets in developed regions, which consume much higher volumes of additives per ton of cement than many of the largest cement markets in developing regions.
This study analyzes the $10.6 billion world cement and concrete additive industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by additive type (e.g., water reducers, set controllers, coloring agents, air entrainers, blast furnace slag, gypsum, fly ash, silica fume, fibers), market (e.g., buildings, highways and streets), world region and for 21 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including BASF, Sika and Grace Construction Products.
