Construction chemicals are the chemical compounds used to modify the properties of the construction materials. These chemicals reduce the amount of water used in a construction. They play a crucial role in improving the overall performance of a building and non-building structures. These chemicals can be categorized into different product segments including concrete admixtures, construction adhesives, construction sealants, protective coatings, and waterproofing chemicals.
The most important group of raw materials found in almost every construction chemical formulation are polymers. In many cases, the chemical producer, construction chemical manufacturer, and end-user work together on the formulation to get the desired product. Most of the key players in this market spend around 3% of their total expenditure on R&D activities every year. BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Bayer Material Science, Wacker Chemie AG, and SABIC are some of the major raw material suppliers for these chemicals.
