Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Concrete Superplasticizer Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The global concrete superplasticizer market to grow at a CAGR of 6.26% over the period 2014-2019.

Global Concrete Superplasticizer Market 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers APAC, MEA, the Americas, and Europe; it also covers the global concrete superplasticizer market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion on the key vendors operating in this market.

Concrete superplasticizers are admixtures formed by linear polymerization of sulfonic acids attached to polymer backbones.

They play an important role in construction materials, as they enhance strength, binding properties, flowability, and workability. Concrete superplasticizers are available in two forms: powders and liquids.

End-users usually prefer the liquid form, as the powdered form is difficult to add to concrete mixtures and to maintain uniformity. Concrete superplasticizers are used in ready-mix concrete, precast concrete, high-performance concrete, shotcrete, and others.

Based on type, the global concrete superplasticizer market can be segmented into SNF, MLS, PC, and SMF. SNF concrete superplasticizers are water-soluble construction materials and consist of naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde condensates. PC concrete superplasticizers are high-range water reducers and are used as dispersants to avoid particle aggregation and improve suspension flow.

According to the report, globally, the investment growth in the construction sector is increasing but at a sluggish and uneven rate, because of the slow global economic growth and disinflationary pressure. Though higher monetary accommodation is promoting the demand for construction in many parts of the world, weak consumer confidence and credit constraints are hindering market growth. Thus, the construction sector is likely to recover from the slow growth in 2015.

Further, the report states that high raw material cost hinders market growth.
