Lignosulfonate-based Concrete Admixtures (Plasticizer and Superplasticizer) Market - Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

Lignosulfonates are wood chemicals obtained as by-products during the sulfite process of wood pulp. Lignosulfonates are primarily anionic polyelectrolytes that are easily soluble in water. These wood chemicals are used in various applications and end-user industries such as construction (plasticizers and superplasticizers), gypsum board, animal feed (pellets), agrochemical (pesticide dispersant), and oil & gas (oil well drilling muds). Lignosulfonates exhibit immense potential as plasticizers in developing regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East due to usage of economical chemical admixtures in the construction industry in these regions. Furthermore, significant development in the construction industry in these regions is likely to drive the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market during the forecast period. 

Plasticizer was the largest product segment of the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market, accounting for more than 65% share in 2014. Superplasticizer is expected to be the fastest-growing product segment of the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market during the forecast period. Rapid growth in the construction industry is estimated to drive demand for plasticizers in the near future. Furthermore, demand for superplasticizers is anticipated to increase at a decent rate during the forecast period primarily due to their high water reducing ability and is estimated to increase at a decent rate in the next few years.

In terms of volume, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the global lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market in 2014. This is primarily ascribed to rising demand for plasticizers and superplasticizers in the construction industry in the region. Asia Pacific projected to be the fastest growing regional market during the forecast period. Demand for lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures in the region is estimated to be primarily driven by rapid growth in the infrastructure sector in China, India, and ASEAN countries. The lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market in the Middle East is also anticipated to expand significantly during the forecast period. Demand for lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures is projected to rise in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and the UAE in the next few years owing to increase in investments in the infrastructure sector in these countries. The lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market in Latin America is also anticipated to expand decently in the next eight years, primarily due to growth in the construction industry. 

The lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market is primarily driven by rising demand for lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures in the construction industry. However, the availability of effective substitutes at competitive prices is likely to hamper market growth. Increase in investments in the infrastructure sector in the Middle East is likely to act as an opportunity for the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market in the next eight years. Key players in the lignosulfonate-based concrete admixtures market include BASF SE, Sika AG, W.R. Grace Co-Conn., Fosroc International, CICO Technologies Limited, CEMEX S.A.B. de C.V., CHRYSO Group, Sodamco-Weber, Mapei International, and Pidilite Industries Limited.
