Market Scenario

The global concrete admixtures market is presumed to expand at a rapid CAGR during the estimated period (2016-2022) owing to the growing construction industries, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Concrete admixtures are referred to as supreme chemicals which are added to the concrete at the initial mixing stage in order to modify the working properties of the mixture. Properties of concrete enhance strength, durability and with admixture adds chemical stability with reduction in water usage. While concrete enhances the durability and strength, admixture adds chemical stability with reduction in water usage. Besides reducing the water content, admixture also helps in slowing down the rate at which concrete sets. Concrete admixtures are a range of chemicals which are added to concrete to enhance several characteristics of the concrete mixture.
