Increasing Underwater Metro Projects to Impact Underwater Concrete Market Positively

Market Analysis

The global underwater concrete market is predicted to grow at a 9% CAGR over the forecast period (2017-2023), states the new Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Underwater concrete or UWC, simply put, is a special variety of high-performance concrete. This has been specially designed for enhancing constructability along with performance in water environments.

Underwater concrete is used to construct complex structures that are wholly or partly immersed in water such as swimming pools, bridges, dams, and other structures where the entire or part of the structure lies underwater. This form of concrete is used for preventing concrete segregation under water. Owing to this, numerous types of admixtures are utilized in order to maintain and enhance the durability and strength of the concrete.

Various factors are propelling the underwater concrete market growth. These factors, as specified by the Market Research Future (MRFR) report, include the growing demand for high strength raw materials such as adhesives, sealants, cement, and admixtures in the construction industry, presence of several concrete manufacturers and contractors in India and also China, and increasing construction of tunnels and dams in the developing nations. Additional factors pushing market growth include growing advanced constructions such as swimming pools especially in developed nations, demand for marine installations such as harbor, underground port and shafts installation, increasing underwater metro projects, and the availability of advanced adhesives and admixtures.

On the contrary, improper concrete mix design, coupled with, improper placement are factors that may hinder the underwater concrete market growth over the forecast period.
