Market Overview

The Total Addressable Market (TAM) for construction chemical was valued at USD 39.15 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 63.39 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period (2023–2031).

Most commonly used in conjunction with cement, concrete, and other building materials, construction chemicals are additives that increase the longevity and usefulness of many structures. For concrete to have the necessary qualities to support the complexity of modern buildings, products are typically applied to improve the concrete's compressive strength, workability, performance, and endurance. Additives modify a material's properties, such as its heat of hydration, water reduction, dispersion, and air entrainment, setting time acceleration or retardation, permeability, and durability. In contrast, hardeners are applied to buildings to prevent water and dust infiltration. As a result of using these chemicals, the same quantity of building materials can be used to achieve better appearance and yield, as well as more excellent moisture retention, increased bond strength, increased crack resistance, and a shortened drying time for mortar.

Market Dynamics

What are the Primary Factors driving the Market for Construction Chemicals?

Growing Urbanization Trend in the Construction Industry

The rapid growth of cities in many developing economies has led to a high rate of urbanization. An increase in disposable income per capita and an enhanced standard of living will stimulate overall market demand. Builders will put up new homes and businesses to meet the surging demand brought on by urbanization. The residential building and other structures include movie theatres, shopping malls, hospitals, and restaurants. As a result, this market's expansion will be boosted. Globally, the construction of new apartment buildings and other forms of permanent urbanization is at an all-time high. The development of the construction chemical market will be driven by an increase in the number of residential construction projects initiated by companies using high-quality construction materials to improve structural integrity and sustainability.

What are the Main Factors that will slow down the Market for Construction Chemicals?

Governmental Regulations over VOC Emissions

Many people experience skin irritation, asthma, nausea, confusion, headaches, and eye irritation after exposure to VOCs produced by construction chemicals used in building activities. Formaldehyde, acetone, and butanol are harmful VOCs that can seep out of an acoustic ceiling tile. Solid wood, caulking sealant, or floor wax are commonly used in residential construction. The expansion of the construction chemicals market is hindered by regulatory constraints on using construction chemicals brought about by concerns over VOC emissions. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine temporarily derailed recovery prospects for the global economy after the COVID-19 pandemic. Many international markets have felt the effects of economic sanctions on multiple countries, a rise in commodity prices, and disruptions to supply chains caused by the conflict between these two powers.
