Global Self-Compacting Concrete Market: Introduction
Self-Compacting concrete, also known by SCC, is a mix of concrete which is having moderate viscosity, high deformability, high segregation resistance, and low yield stress. Self-Compacting concrete is a highly fluid mix and is having unique features like it sets in the shape of the mold very closely, and does not requires tamping post pouring, and can easily flow through obstructions and the formwork. Self-Compacting concrete is essentially used in precast and repairing applications. Furthermore, its use had also intensified in the construction sector. Self-Compacting concrete is also having the ability to flow easily and to settle in the most congested fractures and set to be reinforced areas completely established on self-weight. This feature is known for reduction of vibration equipment and a significant labor force. As a result, it leads to time saving and noise free construction environment.
The growth of the self-Compacting concrete market can be credited to the growing need for a non-vibrating process for laying the concrete, the decrease in the cost of MRO, improvement in air quality, and less adverse impact on the environment in the self-consolidating concrete based repair & construction activities. The market is also anticipated to be promoted by the safety and health benefits of the concrete and improved construction and performance results. The global self-consolidating concrete market expected to be affected by the high cost associated with its use in all the developing countries. Moreover, this situation is projected to change drastically in Asia Pacific region owing to the development of advanced self-consolidating concrete.
