The shotcrete accelerator system is also known as spraycrete. Shotcrete is a mortar that can be supplied through a pipe and projected at high-speed velocities on to the desired surface. It is secured by steel rods or meshes. Fiber support is also used for strengthening in the construction of slopes and tunnels. Shotcrete is sprayed and compressed at the same time using nozzle force. It can be sprayed on any form of structure, including erect or horizontal areas.

Increasing mining activities worldwide, rise in tunnel constructions due to swift development in emerging economies, and growing need for construction maintenances in developed economies are the key factors driving growth of the global shotcrete accelerator market. However, dusting problems and health hazards related to the use of alkali accelerators are restraining growth of the market.

Shotcrete Accelerator Market Taxonomy

The global shotcrete accelerator market is segmented on the basis on type, grade, process, and application

On the basis of type:

  • Alkali-Free Accelerator
  • Alkaline Aluminate Accelerator
  • Alkaline Silicate Accelerator

 On the basis of Grade:

  • Liquid Accelerator
  • Powdered Accelerator

On the basis of Process:

  • Wet Mix Process
  • Dry Mix Process

On the basis of Application;

  • Mining
  • Tunneling
  • Construction Repair Works
  • Waterproofing walls
  • Others

In wet mix shotcrete, previously prepared mixed concrete is pumped through a nozzle. Compressed air is introduced at the nozzle to drive the mixture on to the receiving surface. The wet mix procedure generally produces fewer recoils, wastes, and dust particles as compared to the dry mix process. Wet mix is the preferred method for activities such as mining and tunneling, where large amount of concrete is required for stabilization. Structures constructed with wet mix process have superior quality and are more stable as compared dry process, which is the major driving factor for growth of shotcrete accelerator market.

Market Outlook

  • Asia Pacific region holds dominant position in shotcrete accelerators market. Increasing construction activities in China are propelling growth of the market in this region. Developments such as smart constructions in Japan is driving growth of shotcrete accelerators market.
  • The upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which will be held in 2022, has driven the construction of new stadiums and hotels in the country. This has resulted in increasing use of shotcrete accelerators in the Middle East. Development activities such as construction of proper concrete roads in the emerging economies of Africa is likely to spur the demand for shotcrete accelerators market in Africa over the forecast period
  • In North America, the U.S. has a road network that surpasses 6.58 million kilometers in total length, making it the world's longest and biggest road network. Need for proper maintenance of the roads has resulted in rise in demand for shotcrete accelerators in this region. North America also has a booming construction sector due to the projects such as the New Building Canada Fund, which commits over 14 billion for the construction sector in Canada, which is fueling growth of the market in this region
  • The maintenance activities related to aging historic constructions are likely to augment growth of shotcrete market in Europe.
