Cement additives Market: Introduction
Cement additives are materials that are used to improve the performance of the cement and also helps in the optimization of the properties of the cement. The major benefit of using cement additives are improved chemical resistance, waterproofing, colour and strength of the cement. Cement additives also helps in the decreased use of other chemicals with water. These additives are used in small amounts in liquid or powder form to meet the aesthetic and functional aspects of commercial, industrial as well as residential buildings or structures.
There are different types of cement additives like chemical additives, mineral and fiber additives. Chemical additives include retarding agents, normal & super plasticizers and waterproofing admixtures. Whereas, the fiber additives include steel and synthetic fibers while the mineral additives include fly ash, silica slag and husk ash.
The additives are also classified based on their functions as retarders, dispersants, extenders, accelerators and fluid loss additives.

Cement additives Market: Dynamics
Increasing demand from construction industry to bolster the global cement additives market in upcoming future. Rising construction activities and setting up of new infrastructure in developing and least developed countries is estimated to spur the demand for cement additives during the assessment period. The varied properties of the cement additives that aids to save labour time, water proofing features and reduction in the use of water and enhanced quality of cement is further expected to increase the adoption rate and thereby benefit the cement additives market. Rapid shift to urbanization and the growing population is creating a need for housing and other infrastructural developments which in turn is anticipated to push the market of cement additives in foreseeable future. Moreover, increasing consumer preference for high quality cement to further boost the market growth in upcoming years.
Also, the growth of cement additives is attributed to increasing use of water reducers and plasticizers demand in great performance and SCC areas and increasing applications of the additives in the roofing, exterior walls, doors and windows of residential buildings. Rise in demand for high performance construction projects including advanced buildings structures and innovative construction is estimated to further aid in boosting the demand of cement additives.
Continuous increase in the price of raw materials and cement additives is anticipated to hamper the market in upcoming future. Moreover, increasing regulations regarding use of toxic chemicals is further anticipated to restrict the growth of cement additives during the course of assessment period.
