United Kingdom

Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, March 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Shotcrete/Sprayed Concrete Market.

The global shotcrete/sprayed concrete market is expected to grow at 8.1% CAGR from 2023 to 2029. It is expected to reach above USD 16.13 billion by 2029 from USD 8 billion in 2022.

Shotcrete or sprayed concrete is a type of specialty concrete that is sprayed onto a building's surface at high velocity through a pressure-resistant, sealed hose. The shotcrete/sprayed concrete application method is adaptable and cost-effective. The concrete mix is blown onto the substrate through a spraying nozzle after being hydrated with water. There are some advantages to shotcrete or sprayed concrete over regular concrete. Constructions benefit from their high mechanical strength and toughness. They have a high compressive strength and dense compaction because they use less cement to water. The construction is also able to achieve improved bond strength and low water permeability thanks to the application of shotcrete or sprayed concrete. Additionally, it saves time and money on formwork.

Product Launches and Product Expansions

  • In February 2021, Sika launched a new recycling process for old concrete where old concrete is divided into portions of stone, sand, and limestone by an efficient and straightforward process, which also binds about 60 kg of CO2 per crushed material. waste demolition concrete. With the brand name reCO2ver, the renaming will significantly reduce the environment for the construction industry.
  • BASF SE launched its Virtual Design and Construction resource center, which offers Building Information Modeling content as well as other digital services to its project owners.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for shotcrete in the construction industry as a result of its advantages over traditional construction methods.
  • The growing popularity of sprayed concrete as a rehabilitation and repair material due to its ability to restore structural integrity and extend the life of infrastructure assets.
  • Rising demand for sprayed concrete in mining and tunneling applications due to its superior properties compared to other conventional materials such as mortar or cement grout.
  • Increasing use of shotcrete/sprayed concrete in landscaping and architectural applications due to its decorative finish options and low maintenance requirements, etc.

Rise in construction activities is the main driver of growth of shotcrete/sprayed concrete market.

Shotcrete market is gaining huge popularity owing to rapid surge in construction activities such as development of smart cities, metropolis, industrialization, bridges, and underground structures. Shotcrete also known as sprayed concrete is an efficient technique of spraying concrete onto free form surfaces and complex structures such as tunnels. Various benefits offered by shotcrete process incudes durability, high tensile strength, low permeability, thermal efficiency, and fire retardation. It is commonly used in repair works for repair of fire and earthquake damage and deteriorated surfaces, encasing structural steel for fireproofing, and strengthening walls.

Another major driver of the shotcrete/sprayed concrete market is rapid economic development and growing urbanization.

The shotcrete/sprayed concrete market is primarily driven by increasing underground construction activities, rapid economic development and growing urbanization, increasing underground transportation, technical efficiency of shotcrete and increasing activities of mining and tunnelling. Moreover, the shotcrete/sprayed concretes market is also driven by increasing construction of free form structures such as sculptures, theme park elements, climbing walls and water-retaining structures including river and sea walls, dams, storage reservoirs, swimming pools, canal linings and water towers. Furthermore, shotcrete/sprayed concrete manufacturers are continuously developing new technologies and advanced equipment for shotcrete/sprayed concrete application.
