The Global Shotcrete Market was valued at US$ 5.61 billion in 2016. Shotcrete is a technique used to spray concrete through a hose at high velocity onto surface pneumatically. The concrete mixed with water are sprayed through a nozzle over the substrate. Growing population and propelling economy of Asia Pacific leads to infrastructure development and sustainable public transport. Rapid investment in underground tunneling and metro rail construction to avoid traffic and reduce travelling time in densely populated region of Asia Pacific is expected to lead to exponential growth of the market for shotcrete during 2017-2025. Moreover, technological advancements in shotcrete, would further increase its application area during the forecast period. For instance, Shot-Tech robotic system deploys a remote-controlled spraying arm for underground and tunneling construction purposes. Putzmeister Shotcrete Technology is leading the industry for design and manufacture of wet- and dry-process shotcrete equipment.

Europe held a dominant position in the global shotcrete market in 2016, owing to rampant development in the public transportation systems in the region. The region comprises a swift transportation system of metro rail and tunnels with several other underground tunnels underway. Moreover, wet-mix shotcrete is expected to replace conventional concrete in underground construction, which in turn, is increasing the demand for shortcrete, in turn, boosting the shortcrete market growth. Also, the market in North America is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to increasing infrastructure development activities inline in the near future. For instance, New York East Side Access worth over US$ 10 billion, Honolulu Rail Transit project worth over US$ 6 billion, Toronto’s Eglinton Crosstown light rail project worth over US$ 5 billion, Los Angeles’ Purple Line Extension Phase-1 project worth over US$ 2.8 billion, Seattle’s East Link Light Rail project worth over US$ 2.8 billion and Washington’s Silver Line Phase-2 project worth over US$ 2.8 billion are expected to propel the market for shotcrete in the near future.

Key takeaways of the market:

  • Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region in global Shotcrete market. It accounted a CAGR of 9.3% from 2017-2025 in terms of revenue. The market in this region is expected to be primarily driven by rampant growth of tunnels, water retaining structures in China, India, and ASEAN countries. The growing need of underground metro lines and tunnels, rising urbanization and growing demand for reliable public transport are some of the key drivers for the growth of Shotcrete in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • The market in Latin America is expected to register a significant growth rate over the forecast period. Rise in construction activities are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the players in this region.
  • Mining companies, engineers and contractors are increasingly deploying quick, reliable, economic and efficient technology of pneumatically operated shotcrete. Shot-tech robotic system technology is dominating the market for shotcrete as it enables the shotcrete to spray automatically after blasting and allowing the nozzle operating crew to be safe.
  • BASF SE, Heidelberg Cement, Grupo ACS, Lafargeholcim, Cemex, Sika AG, GCP Applied Technologies, U.S. Concrete, Mapei, and Normet are among the key players in global shotcrete market
  • Technological advancement is leading to the key innovation in the new product launches. Companies are also investing in expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures in the market. The key multinational players rapidly investing in shotcrete technology to fulfil the growing demand for shotcrete in Europe and Asia Pacific. For instance, BASF AG installed a shotcrete plant in Andhra Pradesh, India. Moreover Sika AG started a shotcrete plant in Australia, to meet the growing demand for shotcrete in rail tunnels, suburbs in Forrest field Airport link.
