World Cement & Concrete Additives

Gains will be bolstered by recovery in the US construction market, as well as by the consumption of much higher volumes of additives per ton of cement in Western Europe and Japan.

World demand to rise 8.3% annually through 2015

World demand for cement and concrete additives is projected to increase 8.3 percent annually to $15.8 billion in 2015, a significant improvement over the performance of the 2005-2010 period. Gains will be bolstered by recovery in the US construction market, which will boost demand for both cement and related additives. Advances in Western Europe and Japan, while below the global average, will be significant in boosting overall demand, as they consume much higher volumes of additives per ton of cement than many of the largest cement markets in the world, such as China, India, Brazil, Vietnam and Egypt.

In developing markets, growth will be boosted by sustained levels of construction activity, increased cement consumption and the growing use of additives to shorten construction times, save on labor costs and draw concrete construction practices closer into line with the standards in more developed markets. In India, demand will be boosted by greater use of cement in large infrastructure projects, incentives to utilize industrial waste products as mineral additives and efforts to improve the performance characteristics of concrete products. In China, already the world’s largest market for additives, increasing demand for higher-grade water reducers (superplasticizers) and other specialty products will bolster overall value gains.

Fiber additives to lead gains from small base

The use of mineral additives in concrete formulations is expanding due to efforts to reduce overall cement consumption and to take advantage of performance attributes offered by industrial waste products such as fly ash (which can increase chemical resistance and final strength) and blast furnace slag (which can improve durability). Although much of this use will be in the form of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in cement production (which is not included in the scope of this study), greater use of these same mineral additives in concrete formulations is also anticipated.

Chemical additive demand growth will be led by water reducers, particularly highvalue superplasticizers used in selfconsolidating concrete (SCC) and other high-performance applications. Air entrainers and other smaller chemical products will also benefit from increased use in SCC, which is finding greater use in high-rise buildings, dams and other structures with particularly rigorous performance criteria. The small fiber segment is expected to register the fastest growth through the forecast period, due to rebounding demand in several key markets and increasing use of fiber additives in markets in which their use has been less common, including Western Europe and other relatively mature additive markets.

Study Scope

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.
