Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106757 | Status : Ongoing



Shotcrete is a technique for projecting concrete at a high velocity onto a vertical or above surface. The application's impact helps to solidify the concrete. Although shotcrete's hardened qualities are comparable to those of traditional cast-in-place concrete, the nature of the application method results in an excellent bond with most substrates and quick or instant capabilities, especially on complex forms or shapes. Shotcrete requires less formwork and can be more cost-effective than traditional concrete placement. Shotcrete can be applied in a wet mix-mix or dry mix-mix method. It is appropriate for curved and thin elements and utilized in new construction and restorations.

  • Increasing demand for shotcrete concrete for slope and surface protection, underground excavation, marine structures, and buildings is surging the demand.

  • Shotcrete is cost-effective as it just requires a tiny, portable facility to manufacture and install. Shotcreting operations are frequently used to repair structures in places with limited access.

Attributed to its versatility in shape, high strength, durability, good bonding ability, and ease of application onto a surface at high velocity in locations with limited access, it is an important material for operation. Its applications range from slope and surface protection to structural renovation. Shotcrete is used to protect a lacerated surface that might otherwise deteriorate or become unstable, owing to fracture and flaws if left untreated.

  • Shotcrete for subterranean support has become increasingly popular in the mining industry in recent years. The simultaneous operation of numerous headings, odd filling circumstances, and access difficulties are some of the issues that are unique to underground mining and necessitate novel shotcrete uses.

  • Shotcrete is useful where formwork is too expensive or impossible, where forms can be reduced or removed, access to the work area is challenging, thin layers or variable thicknesses are required, or traditional casting procedures are unavailable.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Shotcrete Concrete Market

The global economic crisis induced by the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant influence on global trade. Due to the financial collapse in the construction industry, which resulted in unemployment and suspension or cancellation of building projects, the COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental influence on the shotcrete concrete market growth. Various countries are feeling the impacts, causing uncertainty and instability. Construction projects were halted as government funds were diverted to the healthcare sector. Raw resources and labor were scarce due to social distance rules and import-export restrictions. As a result, operational constraints and interrupted supply chains limited the shotcrete concrete market during the pandemic.

Key Insights

The report will cover the following key insights:

  • Regulatory scenario of shotcrete concrete

  • Key development of shotcrete concrete

  • Government initiatives to promote shotcrete concrete

  • Impact of COVID-19 on the Market

Analysis by Technique

By technique, the market is classified into wet mix and dry mix.

  • When using lightweight concrete, the dry mix technique is employed. Higher strengths, less creep and drying shrinkage, and greater durability are all benefits of the lower water-cement ratio. The use of air-entraining agents in the wet process can readily produce improved durability.

  • The water content is more accurately regulated in the wet mix procedure since it entails mixing all materials with the desired water content. In the shotcrete concrete business, the wet mix shotcrete technology is generally preferred. The wet mix is created by mixing cement, mortar, and sprayed concrete additives with water.
