Shotcrete or sprayed concrete is a specialty concrete material applied by spraying through a sealed, pressure-resistant hose or pipe. Sprayed concrete can be classified into dry-mix (Gunite) and wet-mix (Shotcrete) on the basis of its processing. Both dry and wet mixes have their specific benefits. Shotcrete is a cost effective method for placing concrete as there is no need for formwork. Nowadays, ‘Shotcrete’ is the general word used to determine both wet and dry processes. The major applications of shotcrete are tunnel linings, mining operations, rehabilitation works, refractory systems, and others. The demand for sprayed concrete is influenced by its versatile and innovative characteristics as it can be projected onto any shape of surface along with vertical and overhead areas.

Various raw materials used in shotcrete mix design include cement, aggregates, additives (fly-ash, silica-fume), fibers, admixtures (accelerator, plasticizer, and retarder), and water. In dry-mix process, water will be added at the nozzle while spraying. The water flow can be controlled manually by nozzleman based on the surface of application. In wet-mix process, ready-mix concrete is used where air is added at the nozzle for stream control. Among the raw materials admixtures and fibers are added depending on the specific applications.

Global shotcrete market is moderately fragmented, where BASF SE, Sika AG, Heidelberg Cement AG, The Euclid Chemical Company, and Cemex S.A.B. De C.V. constitute about 60% market share in production and supply. The companies in shotcrete market need to compete with each other with respect to low prices and wide product range in order to meet the market requirements.

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.

Shotcrete market is driven by 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.
