This technological progress in the industry further propels the growth of the Vietnam construction chemicals market.

Growing demand for ready-mix concrete (RMC) is Impacting the Vietnam Construction Chemicals Market Growth

The growing demand for ready-mix concrete (RMC) in Vietnam has a substantial impact on the growth of the Vietnam construction chemicals market. Ready-mix concrete is a pre-mixed and proportioned concrete mixture that is directly delivered to construction sites. In RMC, besides Cement, water, and aggregate as the main constituent, chemical admixtures, mineral admixtures, and fibers are used by various users as it offers many advantages such as consistent quality, time efficiency, and reduced labor requirements. Hence, concrete admixtures are widely used to enhance the performance and workability of RMC. These admixtures, like plasticizers, superplasticizers, accelerators, and retarders, are added to enhance the strength, durability, and workability of the concrete or building structure. Hence, the growing demand for RMC leads to higher consumption of concrete admixtures and drives the growth of the construction chemicals market. Ready-mix concrete is known for its consistent quality and performance which makes it a preferred choice by end users for construction projects. However, specific construction requirements often necessitate the use of construction chemicals to enhance the properties of RMC. For example, waterproofing compounds, corrosion inhibitors, and air-entraining agents may be added to RMC to improve its resistance against water, corrosion, and freeze-thaw cycles. Thus, the need for specialized construction chemicals to meet these performance requirements is expected to contribute the market growth. Ready-mix concrete (RMC) offers several advantages in terms of efficiency and cost-effectiveness as it reduces construction time, minimizes material wastage, and optimizes labor utilization. As an outcome, RMC is progressively adopted in different construction projects across various sectors, including residential, commercial, and infrastructure. The rising usage of RMC translates into higher demand for construction chemicals used in its production, such as admixtures, curing compounds, and surface retarders. Green building practices, including the use of sustainable materials and energy-efficient construction methods, are gaining momentum in Vietnam. RMC is considered an eco-friendly and energy-efficient construction material as it reduces the consumption of water and cement, minimizes construction waste, and improves energy efficiency during construction. The green building trend creates a demand for eco-friendly construction chemicals that align with sustainable construction practices, thereby impacting the growth of the construction chemicals market. The RMC industry is witnessing technological advancements aimed at improving the quality, performance, and durability of concrete. For instance, the introduction of self-compacting concrete (SCC) and high-performance concrete (HPC) requires the use of specialized construction chemicals to achieve the desired properties. These advancements in RMC technology drive the demand for construction chemicals, including rheology modifiers, viscosity agents, and specialized admixtures. The combined effect of the above-mentioned factors has propelled the demand for construction chemicals and supported the Vietnam Construction Chemicals Market growth.
