The global Underwater Concrete Market is driven by demand for concrete in hydro projects such as the construction of hydropower generations plants. The global Underwater Concrete Market can be segmented into admixtures, cement, aggregates, and others.
Global Underwater Concrete Market- Latest Trends with Industry
Analysis and Growth to 2025
Concrete is the most common and primary material used for construction in the world.
Underwater concrete is employed for the construction of complex structures which are
partly or fully immersed in water such as dams, bridges, swimming pools, or any other
structure where a part or the whole structure lies underwater. The utilization of
underwater concrete is not new or recent, it has been used for construction purposes
since a long time. In recent years, through improved methods of manufacturing and
employment of developed equipment tremendous technological progress has been
made. Further improvements have been aimed for with regards to the mix proportions
design, the methods of implementation, and the quality of concrete admixtures itself.
Different methods of implementation include tremie method, pump method, and
The demand of high strength raw materials such as admixtures, cement, sealants, and
adhesives in the construction industry coupled with a large presence of concrete
contractors and manufacturers in developing nations such as India and China are
anticipated to drive the expansion of the market during the forecast period.
In terms of raw materials, the global underwater concrete market can be segmented
into admixtures, cement, aggregates, and others. The aggregates raw materials
segment held a prominent share of the underwater concrete market in 2016, which
can be attributed to the superior binding properties of the aggregates. Furthermore,
the increasing usage of recycled aggregates in addition to natural aggregates is
estimated to boost the expansion of the market for the segment during the forecast
period. The cement raw material segment also held a considerable share of the
underwater concrete market in 2016. The development of Portland cement is a key
driver for this segment. The advanced cement has improved properties which have
aided in a hassle-free placement
