Ready-Mix Concrete: The major market for CSP
The concrete superplasticizers market is segmented into five types: sulfonated naphthalene formaldehydes (SNF), sulfonated melamine formaldehydes (SMF), modified lignosulfonates (MLS), polycarboxylic acids (PC), and others. Each type of superplasticizer has its own properties and applications. These individual superplasticizers have application specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency. Naphthalene superplasticizers are useful in ready-mix concrete applications to construct buildings and bridges. Polycarboxylic acids are the latest and expensive superplasticizer especially used in high-end constructions such as airports and government infrastructure. The use of these superplasticizers increases the efficiency of their applications.
Polycarboxylate Derivatives: The fastest-growing type for CSP
Polycarboxylates are the third generation superplasticizers that revolutionized the market with their capability to reduce water to cement ratio by 40.0% even at low dosage rates. Compared to other superplasticizers, polycarboxylates at a dosage rate of 0.15% to 0.3% can achieve 30.0% to 40.0% of water reduction. These are also suitable in hot weather conditions and can be transported to long distances. These superplasticizers can be used in all applications, especially preferable in high strength and self-compacting concrete applications
The Middle East & Africa and Asia-Pacific accounted for more than 72.7% of the concrete superplasticizers market in 2015
Middle East & Africa is the second major consumer of superplasticizers, globally. The Asia-Pacific region is the largest, with major developments in China and India. The Middle East & Africa and Asia-Pacific together accounted for maximum of consumption of superplasticizers in 2015. These two regions are expected to compete with each other to dominate the market by 2020, with advanced technological developments in superplasticizers for end-users. Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the major market till 2020, with high investments in construction due to growing population and demand.
Major players such as Arkema SA (France), BASF SE (Germany), Kao Corporation (Japan), Sika AG (Switzerland), and W.R. Grace & Co. (U.S.) have adopted development strategies such as expansions, acquisitions, and product developments to achieve growth in the global CSP market.
