An Analysis of the Increased Demand of superplasticizer Worldwide
The superplasticizer industry has a high degree of dispersion, upstream petrochemicals, and downstream infrastructure real estate: superplasticizer is an indispensable component of concrete. Although the proportion is low, it can significantly improve the performance of concrete, mainly including high-efficiency water reducer and high-performance Water reducing agent, etc. The superplasticizer is in the middle of the industry; the upstream is petroleum and coal chemical industry; the downstream is commercial concrete, building construction, etc. The concentration and volume of the upstream and downstream are higher. The concrete plasticizer industry itself has more scattered production capacity, with more than 2,000 in the country, mostly compounding enterprises with low barriers to entry.
The large share continues to increase, and the profitability of the industry improves: According to the Concrete Admixtures Association, the world's demand for commercial concrete admixtures in 2019 was 339.9010 million tons, an increase of 1.4% year-on-year, and sales were 854.206 billion yuan. It has the advantages of a good slump and no pollution to the environment. It has the most significant usage and accounts for 51.70%. The pattern of the concrete plasticizerindustry has been improving, and profitability has been enhanced in recent years. The main reasons include:
(1) The artificial sandstone is gradually popularized, and the decline in the quality of the superimposed sandstone will increase the technical service requirements of water reducer companies, which will drive the demand for water reducer. The order resources will also be inclined to larger technology-based companies.
(2) Water-reducing agents belong to the chemical industry, and environmental protection policies have tightened to eliminate small enterprises, and the leading share has increased.
(3) Considering safety issues, infrastructure and real estate companies set up centralized procurement centres, and the concrete plasticizer are expected to avoid price wars.
(4) The bargaining power of water reducer companies has improved, oil prices have fallen sharply in the short term, and corporate profits are expected to increase.
(5) The large-scale application of lightweight foam concrete, namely foamed concrete products, has brought a new application area of the superplasticizer used initially in ordinary concrete.
Tongrun is committed to the research and development of foamed concrete admixtures. The company mainly has cement foaming agent, superplasticizer, foam stabilizer, early strength agent and anti-cracking agent. It is an indispensable admixture for the production of lightweight foam concrete wall panels.
