Waterproofing admixtures are added in specific proportions to concrete for achieving certain design standards and performance requirements of concrete structures. The use and benefits of admixtures has been known to construction developers since decades, the prominent utilization of mineral and chemical admixtures in cement is the most common among developed countries. These are used for various residential, commercial, and infrastructure projects in most of the developing countries. The growing requirements of housing units, improving sanitation facilities, infrastructure investments, and funding by governments in developing countries have spurred the growth of cement usage and admixtures.
The market size of waterproofing admixtures depends on new construction and its maintenance and repair activities. The demand for these admixtures is mainly driven by growing requirements for housing and infrastructure. It is also influenced by consumer awareness, need for durable and aesthetic civil structure, and other benefits achieved in making concrete structure more economical for contractors and other interest holders. The restraints in market are different across regions, such as mature infrastructure, logistic issues, low cement production, and low investments in infrastructure sector. The opportunities are cited in new product launches/formulations for various construction applications.
