The capability of superplasticizers to reduce water requirements by 12-25% without affecting the workability leads to production of high-strength concrete and lower permeability. High range water reducers (HRWR), commonly known as superplasticizers, are a specialty construction chemical admixtures used in specific and customized construction applications.
The North America Superplasticizers market was valued at $401.4 million and is expected to reach $572.6 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 6.1%, for the period 2013-18.The main drivers for the North America Superplasticizers market are growing infrastructure requirements in developing economies, improving economics of construction, and shifting preferences of population towards urbanization.
Superplasticizers are sulfonic compounds having the capability of reducing water requirement to cement ratio by 30.0% to 40.0%. Superplasticizers were formerly considered as an approach to create high strength concretes. However, technological enhancement has enabled the performance of superplasticizers in all concrete applications. Superplasticizers are added just before the concrete placement on the surface. This is a sophisticated chemical for several applications without the use of huge amount of water and to reduce slump loss.
