Market Insights and Analyst View:

Construction additives include cement additives, concrete admixtures, plastic additives, bitumen additives, paints and coatings additives, adhesives & sealants additives, glass additives, and ceramic additives. These materials are used to improve the quality and performance of the construction products. They also help to achieve certain desirable properties, such as increased strength, durability, and workability. There are various powder and liquid construction additive products available in the market that enable the formulation of innovative products. The major factors driving the market growth are the growing residential and commercial construction and the increasing government investments in infrastructure developments. The government-supported infrastructure projects include roads, dams, bridges, tunnels, ports, airport pavements, and highways. All these factors are contributing to the construction additives market


Growth Drivers and Challenges:

Growing residential and commercial construction and increasing government investments in infrastructure development are among the key factors driving the market. According to the European Construction Industry Federation, the investment in nonresidential construction in France was estimated at US$ 58.49 billion in 2022. In 2023, DEEM Enterprises LLC announced its plans to spend US$ 2.7 billion to build a Formula 1-style racetrack, housing, and shopping complex on the site of a former airport in New Jersey, US. The growing investments from government organizations lead to a rise in infrastructure construction.

In November 2021, the US government approved a US$ 1.2 trillion infrastructure bill to aid federal investments in various infrastructure projects. Also, construction spending was estimated to increase by 5.5% by 2023. Such initiatives generate demand for construction services, chemicals, and materials. The rising investments and efforts in infrastructure development by governments of various countries across the world drive the market. The growing construction and investments for infrastructure development are fueling the demand for different construction chemicals and materials, thereby driving the construction additives market.

The volatility in raw material prices can act as a deterrent for the market. Construction additives such as emulsifiers, rejuvenators, and anti-strip agents are indirectly derived from crude oil. Disruption in transportation and supply chain, rise in demand for crude oil, inflation in raw material prices, and limited supply of raw materials caused due to the COVID-19 pandemic raised petroleum product prices. The rise in crude oil prices due to fluctuating global economic conditions is further boosting the price of petroleum-derived additives. Price hikes in petroleum products and other raw materials can strain the profit margins on the products, which poses a challenge to the construction additives market growth.
