Shotcrete market - Introduction
The global shotcrete market is expected to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period 2017 to 2025. In the Shotcrete market report, the market is segmented based on process, system, application and region. Shotcrete is primarily sand, cement, and fine aggregate concrete conveyed through a hose. It is pneumatically projected at high velocity onto a surface, as a construction technique. It is reinforced by general steel mesh, steel rods or fibers. Shotcrete is more of an all-inclusive term to describe the spraying of mortar or concrete which is either part of a dry or wet-mix process. Shotcrete was also known as gunite. Marine structures, building repairs, undergrounds excavations are some of the prime application areas of shotcrete. Furthermore, sustainability of shotcrete materials is another major factor contributing to the positive growth of shotcrete market globally.

In the year of 1910, the equipment for pneumatically applying a fine aggregate cement mixture was first introduced. Since then, technological advancement and improvements have been made in the equipment and especially in the technologies required for application of pneumatically applied concrete or mortar. The wide adoption of shotcrete for surface and slope protection, tunnel lining, swimming pool construction, renovating existing structures and innovating special architectural features has resulted in the availability of a wide variety of manufactured pneumatic placement equipment. Shotcrete primarily have high strength, good resistance to weathering, low absorption, and resistance to some forms of chemical attack, these attributes are having a positive impact on the market and increasing the application of shotcrete across in different industries.
Shotcrete has huge potential applications in the construction sector. The growing rapid development in the construction industry in terms of process and technology and rising advancement and number of the underground construction projects across different economies globally is fueling the growth of shotcrete market size.
Shotcrete can take up any shape onto the surface which is one of the prime reasons behind the growing application in the construction industry. Shotcrete is applied in order to repair the damaged surface of wood, steel or concrete structures. Moreover, shotcrete has also found its application for the bridge deck rehabilitation. Shotcrete is generally applied in the building repair works to prevent earthquake and fire damage, strengthening walls and as a preventive measure against the deterioration. It also enhances and strengthens the structural steel for fireproofing. Furthermore, it also has applications in the damage protection of marine structures.
Shotcrete is also used rapidly to construct concrete swimming pools. Spillway surfaces are one of the major applications of the shotcrete. Cost efficient and technical advancement in production is also influencing shotcrete market trends in a positive manner. In addition, sustainability of shotcrete materials is also contributing to the growing application of shotcrete in different end-use industries globally.
