Underwater concrete is defined as a concrete where various admixtures are added in order to prevent segregation of concrete in water. Various admixtures are used to maintain and enhance the durability of concrete. These admixtures also help to reduce shrinkage, strengthen durability, and prevent erosion or washout when concrete is used in water. The underwater concrete market is bifurcated on the basis of raw materials. The raw materials include cement, admixtures, and others. Admixtures include antiwashout admixture, mineral admixture, superplasticizing admixture, rheology control admixture, and so on while others include fine aggregate and coarse aggregate, among others. Based on applications, the market is classified into hydro projects, marine construction (port and harbor installations, underground shafts, and so on.), metro projects, underwater repair (concrete tanks, dams and hydraulic structures) and others.
The underwater concrete market has grown significantly during the past few years and is projected to display higher growth rates in the next five years. The global underwater market was estimated at $ 210 billion in 2013 and is projected to register a CAGR of 9.65%. The main driver for the underwater concrete market is the improving quality of water construction in developing countries, increasing demand for marine constructions (port and harbor installations, bridge piers in rivers and so on, and growing underwater metro projects in developing countries of Asia-Pacific regions. However, there have been a number of failures, which have led to increase in cost and schedule overruns. Improper concrete mix design and improper placement are the biggest problems faced by the industry in the usage of underwater concrete.
