Shotcrete Market, By Process (Wet- Mix and Dry- Mix) , By System (Robotic and Manual), By Application (Underground Construction, Water Retaining Structures, Repair Works, and Protective Coatings), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) is estimated to be valued at US$ 7.32 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% during the forecast period (2024-2031), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Shotcrete is a technique used to spray concrete through a hose at high velocity onto surface pneumatically. The concrete mixed with water is sprayed through a nozzle over the substrate. The growing population and the propelling economy of Asia Pacific leads to infrastructure development and sustainable public transport.

Global Shotcrete Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the shotcrete market, leading to economic crisis and disruptions in global trade. The financial recession in the construction industry has led to unemployment and postponement, which has affected the shotcrete market negatively. The pandemic has caused significant disruptions in raw material transportation, which has ceased many manufacturing industries, leading to a decline in the demand for shotcrete. The market is expected to continue experiencing the effects of the pandemic, with ongoing changes and challenges in the industry. The coronavirus outbreak has led to economic crisis that has severely disrupted the economy and global trade. The shotcrete market also experienced a negative impact owing to the shutdown of manufacturing processes and the postponement or cancellation of construction projects. This has caused financial recession in the construction industry leading to unemployment. For instance, as stated in 2020, in the IOPscience, the scientific publication that distributes scientific information worldwide, in India, the pandemic is costing an estimated  US$ 363crore every day and the pandemic is estimated to reduce the investment in the construction sector by 13% to 30%, affecting the gross value and investment. Similarly, in China, the lockdown imposed during the pandemic has stopped construction activities that have incurred a loss of US$ 1.40 million from construction. Similarly, the U.S. that employs more than 11.2 million people in the construction sector states that 45% of contractors in the construction sector are facing destructions caused by the pandemic.
