Dublin, Oct. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g78wvs/shotcretesprayed) has announced the addition of the "Global Shotcrete/Sprayed Concrete Market Industry Repor 2013-2018" report to their offering.

Shotcrete is primarily used as structural material for surface coatings in tunnels and mines. Shotcrete materials are made up of cement, additives, admixtures, and special construction chemicals. Shotcrete materials exhibit high strength, low permeability, and high durability properties. These properties can be enhanced with addition of different admixtures such as fibers, silica fume, accelerators, retarders, plasticizers, etc. These materials make shotcrete highly resistant to heat, water washout, and alkali & chemical attacks. The ability to be complex shaped and recycled make shotcrete as efficient in several applications. There are two types of shotcrete processes on a major scale, namely, wet-mix and dry-mix.

The shotcrete market is driven by the underground constructions industry and a range of applications, increasing R&D efforts to make shotcrete highly resourceful, and the huge demand from the construction sector which finds shotcrete useful in a myriad of applications. Other applications such as water retaining structures, protective coatings, and repair works help the growth of shotcrete market. Growing advancements and technological inventions in shotcrete equipment and materials would be very effective in the future. Shotcrete has been well perceived in various dominant end-user markets in the last few decades and are expected to be used for low cost housing in the near future.

Globally, the European region dominated the global shotcrete market revenue in 2012. Japan, China, and the U.S. shared 25.8% of the total shotcrete consumption in 2012. The Brazilian shotcrete consumption for end-use applications is expected to grow at 7.9% from 2013 to 2018. Market players are concentrating on expanding their geographical reach. Other development strategies adopted by market players are new products launch, agreements & collaborations, and mergers & acquisitions.

The shotcrete industry is contemplating high research activities to create new equipment to minimize human effort. One of the major problems is the wide price range that makes material choosing very difficult and hard to derive optimal cost effectiveness.
