Market for building chemistry is facing far-reaching changes
The market for chemistry in building and construction is currently more than ever facing changes. In addition to the well-known issues such as the increased demand for high-performance building materials (e.g. high-performance insulating materials) or the increased demands on ecology and recycling, which influence product development and sales, the sector is facing far-reaching changes in competition. The sale of BASF's building chemistry division or the acquisition of Parex by Sika are just two examples.
At the same time, the importance of building chemistry has increased significantly in recent years and affects almost all product areas and building types equally through its use in insulating materials, concrete construction, mortar products, sealants and adhesives.
In order to take a closer look at current developments in the field of building chemicals, B+L has updated its Europe-wide forecasts and is currently conducting specific investigations in the segments waterproofing / sealants / adhesives, mortar products and concrete construction / cement industry.
