Rising Demand for Eco-friendly and Economical Concrete Admixtures to Drive Lignosulfonate-based Concrete Admixtures Market

Blog Description

Lignosulfonates are chemicals that are the by-products from the production of wood pulp. Lignosulfonates are water soluble anionic polyelectrolyte polymers. They are used in various applications and industries such as construction, gypsum board, oil and gas, animal feed, and agrochemicals. Lignosulfonates are the most extensively used water reducing chemicals in the construction industry. Water reducing chemicals work by helping cut down on the quantity of water required in concrete mixtures, without affecting the workability of the concrete.

Infrastructure Investments Stimulate Lignosulfonate-based Concrete Admixtures Market

The growth in the infrastructure sector is driving the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market. Developing regions such as Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Latin America exhibit immense potential for growth in the market as they have a high usage of admixtures in their flourishing construction sector. For instance, the key focus of Thailand’s government is on upgrading and developing the country’s infrastructure. Thus, Sika, which a key player in the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market, is expanding its supply chain in Thailand by inaugurating a mortars and concrete admixtures plant. The investment will enable Sika to meet the high demands of Thailand’s booming construction industry.

Advanced Formulation Technology to Drive Lignosulfonate-based Concrete Admixtures Market 

Using advanced formulation technology, leading market player Fosroc International has launched its newest grout called Conbextra Sureflow 100 in the GCC area, which boasts of technical benefits and improved site robustness. The product has reduced the water-powder ratio, improved flow, and boosted strength. Fosroc’s new grout can be used with adjustable water consistency and can be mixed in under 3 minutes. Due to good workability retention even at high temperatures, pouring large volumes of the concrete mixture becomes easier. Innovations such as these are pushing the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market.

Brief Snapshot of Scope of Lignosulfonate-based Concrete Admixtures Market:

The lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market is segmented on the basis of product and region. Given below are the leading segments and sub-segments:

  • On the basis of product, the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market is segmented into plasticizer and superplasticizer. In 2014, the plasticizer segment accounted for over 65% of the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market, due to being economical and eco-friendly.
  • Superplasticizer is anticipated to be the fastest growing product segment in the period from 2015 to 2023. Rise in demand likely due to the high water reducing ability of superplasticizers.
  • Rapid growth of the construction industry will drive the demand for plasticizers in the future.
  • Among the major regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East, the region that dominated in 2014 was Asia Pacific. The rising demand for plasticizers and superplasticizers from the construction industry was behind the growth of the region’s market.
  • Asia Pacific is also projected to be the fastest growing regional market between 2015 and 2023. The expected fast growth in the region will be attributable to the rising demand for lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures due to the rapid growth in the infrastructure sector in China, India, and ASEAN countries.
