Shotcrete Accelerator Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Alkali Free Curing Accelerator segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the Shotcrete Accelerator Market in 2020. Alkali free shotcrete are widely used in tunnel and mining construction for a structure stabilization, as they improve the concrete’s adhesion to the substrate, decrease the rebound, and facilitate vertical projection. Alkali Free shotcrete are more environmentally friendly and are not corrosive, unlike the alkalis, they are dosed accurately and requires less cement, which will further drive the market's growth. Alkali free shotcrete is also non-caustic or non-toxic available in the liquid/dry powder form, which makes them extremely safe for all applications, even underground or in other confined areas. Furthermore, the use of alkali-free accelerator helps to increase the durability and quality of the concrete structures as compared to the alkaline accelerators that provoke losses in the mechanical resistance of the concrete.

Shotcrete Accelerator Market Segment Analysis - By Process

The wet Process segment held the largest share of more than 55% in the Shotcrete Accelerator Market in 2020 and is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the growing use of wet processes across underground construction and mining stabilization. Moreover, the wet process provides better bond strength and requires lesser manpower which makes it more cost-effective as compared to the dry process. In the wet shotcrete process, premixed concrete is dumped into the pneumatic machine, then compressed air is introduced at the nozzle to drive the mixture out onto the receiving surface. This process generally produces fewer recoils, wastage, better industrial health & safety, and dust particles as compared to the dry process. Hence, the wet process is the preferred method for activities such as mining and tunneling, where a huge amount of concrete is required for stabilization. Structures constructed with the wet process have superior quality and are more stable as compared to the dry process, which is the major factor driving the growth of this segment, which in turn contributing to the growth of the shotcrete accelerator market.

Shotcrete Accelerator Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Tunnel Support and Lining segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the Shotcrete Accelerator Market in 2020.
