Demand for Cement Additives to Grow 7.2% Annually Through 2022


March 19, 2018 ( Newswire) Demand for cement additives in the US is forecast to expand 7.2% yearly to $2.0 billion in 2022, the fastest rate of increase of any major type of construction chemical. Healthy growth will be driven in part by the uptake of higher value and better performing additives such as water reducers and specialty additives. The continued uptake of advanced cement technologies offering superior performance and ease of placement – high performance concrete (HPC) and self-consolidating concrete (SCC) – will also boost demand. These and other trends are presented in Construction Chemicals in the US, 7th Edition, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

Highways and streets are the largest single market for cement additives, accounting for 40% of demand in 2017 and forecast to expand 7.5% yearly through 2022. Gains will be boosted by increased spending on transportation infrastructure - bridges in particular.

Demand for all types of construction chemicals in the US is projected to expand 5.0% per year through 2022. Growth will be stimulated by:

  • healthy growth in new transportation infrastructure construction spending, as well as industrial and institutional
  • gain in improvement and repair spending for residential and nonresidential buildings
  • consumer preferences for more windows, larger kitchens, and decks in new home construction
  • a shift in the product mix toward higher value, more sustainable, cost-effective, and user-friendly products due to growing concerns regarding the environmental and health impact of construction chemicals

Construction Chemicals in the US, 7th Edition (published 2/2018, 175 pages) is available for $5300 from The Freedonia Group. For further details or to arrange an interview with the analyst, please contact Corinne Gangloff by phone 440.684.9600 or email
