Shotcrete Accelerator Market Analysis
Shotcrete Accelerator Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026
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.

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.
