Since urbanization brings economic, social, and environmental changes, these countries will need to meet the requirements of the increasing urban population, including infrastructure, transport, housing, energy, and others.

The chemical formulations which are utilized with cement, concrete and other construction materials for holding the construction material together are referred to as construction chemicals.
