Admixtures are used to modify the properties of concrete either in its plastic state, hardened state, or both.  When used properly, they can confer a variety of advantages, including improved concrete strength or durability, decreased permeability, corrosion reduction, increased slump and workability, improved pumpability and more.

The market for construction additives such as superplasticisers and iron-oxide pigments is expected to expand at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 6.6 per cent from 2018–2025, says growth partnership company Frost & Sullivan in a new report.
