India's "Sunrise Industry - The Construction Chemicals industry" is experiencing growth at a rapid pace. The market is still at a nascent stage in India as compared to developed countries because of the limited awareness with end users on the benefits that construction chemicals can provide. With overall economic growth, increased investments by Government in infrastructure and real estate, coupled with participation of overseas investors and contracting companies, construction chemicals segment is witnessing a surge in demand which is expected to accelerate in coming years. The prospects are bright with awareness about the sector gathering momentum.
Chemical admixtures have made a significant contribution to the development of modem concrete technology. Today's construction practices need concrete of such high consistencies to enable it to be placed by tremie, conveyed through pipeline by pumping, self- leveling and compacting, all at a very low w/c ratio to achieve high strength and durability. This has become possible only by the use of chemical admixtures. There are hardly any important concrete in the world without the use of admixtures. They have become an integral part of modem concrete, a back bone material of modem construction.
