Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106862 | Status : Ongoing



Superplasticizers are the materials used to increase strength by decreasing the water content of the suspensions. Superplasticizers increases the flow efficiency of the suspension by decreasing the aggregation of particulates. Different types of polymers act as superplasticizers which mainly include sulfonated naphthalene-formaldehyde condensates (SNF), sulfonated melamine-formaldehyde condensates (SMF), polycarboxylate derivatives (PC), lignosulfonates (LS), and modified lignosulfonates (MLS). These are mainly used in construction industry while few of them also used in other industries.

Rapidly growing building and construction industry across the globe is a key driver for the superplasticizers market. Recent past has seen a heavy rise in population leading to increased need of accommodations for it. This has led to increased building and construction operations. Moreover, increased industrialization coupled with urbanization has contributed significantly to the growth of the  building and construction industry. Increased building and construction activities for residential as well as commercial use are expected to grow at steady rate in near future.

Emergence of different alternative products in building and construction industry is expected to hinder the growth of superplasticizers market. For instance, recently a new type of concrete called polymer concrete has been emerged. Use of superplasticizers in such concretes is not specifically widespread. Global superplasticizers market is moderately consolidated. Major players in the market are investing in technological development as well as development of new products in order to maintain their competitive position in the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Superplasticizers Market

Outbreak of the COVID-19 caused the restriction on the movement of the people. This has resulted into disruption of supply chains involved in the market. Moreover, building and construction industry was severely affected by the outbreak of COVID-19. There was complete stoppage of the construction operations in different parts of the world. It lead to significant decrease in the superplasticizers, demand. However, with the considerable decrease in COVID 19 cases after mid-2021, building and construction industry gained momentum. It has resulted into increased demand for superplasticizers.  

Key Insights

The report will cover the following key insights:

  • Regulatory Scenario of Superplasticizers Market

  • Key developments in Superplasticizers Market

  • Impact of COVID-19 on Superplasticizers Market
