Key Questions This Study Will Answer?
• What are the factors driving the APAC construction industry?
• What factors influence the growth of Asian construction chemicals?
• How is the Smart City project across APAC impacting the process equipment industry?
• Which key process equipment market participants would benefit from this trend?
• Commoditized products will continue to occupy a major part of the market share. However, this trend is expected to decrease in the forecast period due to the increase in awareness of specialty and sustainable products.
• Given the scenario of a price-conscious market, companies in APAC price their existing products aggressively instead of foraying into value-added sustainable solutions. However, this situation is anticipated to change during the forecast period.
• In many segments, traditional solutions are gradually being replaced by new high-performance products. For instance, polycarboxylate ether-based admixtures are increasingly finding acceptance in certain construction markets where performance drives the decision-making process.
• Government regulations and the growing awareness of the benefits of sustainable construction will drive demand for chemicals and technologies which provide high durability.
• The construction industry is becoming environmentally responsible and resource-efficient while working towards building sustainable structures.
