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, as a result of the nozzle force. It can be sprayed on any form of structure, including erect or horizontal areas. It is a globally approved way of placing cementations in a variety of applications. The shotcrete accelerator system is also known as spraycrete.
Shotcrete is the preferred material in the construction of new buildings right from the foundations up to domes. After years of technological advancements, construction projects opt shotcrete because of low costs due to decreased founding and the capacity to construct surfaces of any shape while providing a strong concrete structure. Increasing mining activities around the world, rise in tunnel constructions due to swift development in emerging economies, and growing need for construction maintenances in developed countries are the key factors driving the global shotcrete accelerator market. The disadvantages of shotcrete accelerator include dusting problems and health hazards related to the use of alkali accelerators.

In dry mix method, the dry compounds are placed in a hopper and then blown with the help of a nozzle. 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. The greatest advantage of the wet mix process is that all the components are mixed with the water and additives required, and greater amount of concrete can be placed in a smaller timespan than the dry process. Hence, 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 efficient compared to the dry process, which is the main driving factor for the shotcrete accelerator market. Alkali-free accelerators are largely used as the alkaline accelerators have a caustic nature posing various health risks, especially to the shotcrete nozzle operators. Globally, liquid accelerator is the preferred grade of shotcrete accelerators. Both alkali-free and alkaline accelerators are available in their liquid form. Liquid accelerators are generally used for wet mix process.
