How Lack of skilled manpower and conservative usage of technology are restricting the growth of India Construction Chemicals?

There is a shortage of trained labor and specialists, particularly in the field of project management, in growing country like India. This creates adverse conditions for the expansion of the construction, infrastructure, and real estate industries.

The construction chemicals market's growth is also being hampered by the usage of outdated construction techniques and technology since many businesses aren't even aware of these advancements.

In certain parts of India, building firms continue to prioritize the Brick Bat Coba (BBC) System above the use of more effective and efficient waterproofing materials, such as PU Foam, among others, in their construction projects.

Region-wise Analysis

What is the Market scenario in South India Region?

Demand for Construction Chemicals in South India is expected to remain prominent in the country. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Kerala are states in the southern part of the country. These service and industrial organizations are able to make substantial investments in this region because it recognizes the potential of IT services.

In the southern area, notably in cities like Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, etc., commercial building development is one of the key drivers of growth as well as ongoing mega projects including Market of India, SPR City, DLF Downtown (IT corridor), Chennai Metro – Phase 2, FinTech City, Defence Corridor, Aerospace and Defence Park Sriperambudur which is encouraging the need for construction chemicals in the forthcoming years.

What is the Market Growth Outlook in North India?

About one-third of the Indian market will continue to be dominated by North India. The rapid infrastructural development in the area and the rising population, which necessitates additional residences and offices, are the main causes of growth in the area.

Additionally, Mapei is the global leader in adhesives and construction chemicals Inaugurated India's 3rd Factory at Kosi, Mathura to cater to the growing demand for construction chemicals in Northern India and speed up the market time for products, as the site is strategically located and well-connected with Northern India via rail and roadways.

Category-wise Insights

Which application holds the largest share of the India Construction Chemical Market?

The residential and Commercial Sectors will remain the largest application by value and volume due to the rising population, increase in middle-class income, and urbanization. The Central government has raised its capital expenditure (capex) allocation to US$ 133.9 billion (Rs. 11.11 trillion) for the fiscal year starting April 1, 2024. This move, aimed at enhancing India's infrastructure, is a strategic effort to drive economic growth. Representing an 11.1% increase from the previous year, the FY25 interim budget earmarks US$ 133.9 billion (Rs. 11.11 trillion) for capital expenditures, accounting for 3.4% of GDP.

For instance, national highway construction in India grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3% between FY14 and FY23. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and lockdown, India built 10,457 km of highways in FY22. In FY23, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways constructed 10,331 km of national highways. In the Interim Budget for 2024-25, the Government of India allocated Rs. 2.78 lakh crore (US$ 33.46 billion) to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.

Which Is the Most Preferred Product Type of India Construction Chemical?

Among the product types, the concrete admixture segment is expected to grow at a faster pace in terms of market volume by the end of 2030. By the end of 2030, the non-metallic material of construction, accounted for a sizeable portion of the market in 2024.

The major manufacturers of construction chemicals are now focusing on developing novel concrete admixture products by mixing plasticizers, retarders, accelerators, and air-entrainer as concrete admixtures are extremely important for any construction project and are majorly used in the country. This trend is being followed by many major players operating in the market, such as BASF, SIKA India Pvt. Ltd., etc.

Additionally, admixtures such as those based on Polycarboxyles (PCE), offer various advantages, such as high strength, relatively faster strength gains, self-compacting, and durability, among others. PCE admixtures presently have about 10% penetration in the Indian construction chemicals market, whereas it is about 25% in China, 50% in Europe, and 80% in Japan.

The Economic Times Housing Finance Summit estimates that only about three homes are built annually per 1,000 people, compared to the five homes per 1,000 people that are required. It is anticipated that the current housing shortage in cities will approach 10 million units. The country will require an additional 25 million affordable housing units by 2030 to satisfy the increase in urban population.

The market for concrete admixture is expanding significantly as a result of India's increasing construction industry. Under PMAY-Gramin, the government planned to deliver 1.95 crore homes. Between 2016 and 2022, the project is anticipated to construct 1.71 crore residential areas, according to government statistics.

Due to all these factors, the demand for concrete admixture in India will increase during the forecast years.
