Report Summary

This report focuses on end-products mainly used by sub-contractors and tradesmen but also includes concrete and mortar additives, which are used in both factory production but also the formulation of concrete and mortars on-site. The UK market for construction chemicals was estimated to have grown by 5% in 2014, although annual growth rates vary between product sub-sectors due to differing trends within key end user markets.

Product sectors covered in this report include; adhesives; sealants, caulks & putties; fillers; concrete & mortar admixtures; protective coatings and resin flooring systems. Adhesives constitute the largest product group in this report. In recent years, growth in this sector has been driven by the recovery in the housing new build, also residential RMI and infrastructure applications.

Product supply chains vary according to product types. Fillers, tile adhesives, mastic sealants and caulks are mainly distributed through DIY retailers and builders merchants. In these sector, there is a high level of toll manufacturing, mainly for merchants and retailers own labels but also for other suppliers. Admixtures and protection chemicals are mostly supplied through specialist construction chemicals distributors while resin flooring systems are mostly supplied direct to approved installers. The key manufacturers and suppliers across this industry are mainly subsidiaries or divisions of trans-national chemical product manufacturers.

Medium term growth prospects for the overall market appear steady but modest, particularly for products mostly supplied to the home improvement and trade sectors - e.g. adhesives, sealants and protective chemicals - for use on residential RMI and refurbishment. Factors which are likely to positively influence the overall market over the medium term future include improved levels of home improvement and new housebuilding activity as a result of economic recovery. In addition, growing optimism in the commercial office sector should lead to increased refurbishment and redecoration work. Continued improvement in the infrastructure sector will mean greater use of admixtures, sealants, protective coatings etc. for use in constructing buildings, bridges, sewers, tunnels etc. with road maintenance and parking infrastructure projects leading to higher demand for surface protection chemicals products for flat roofs, car park decking, concrete / metal structures, road surfaces, etc.
