Smooth and level concrete surfaces assume a significant job in introducing flexible ground surface in the structure and development industry. Endeavors are being made in new development activities to lessen the expense of development. As of now, accessibility of concrete finishers or work is declining. In this way, an item that can resolve the issue identified with floor leveling and fix is required. Self-leveling concrete gives a financially savvy answer for this issue. Many think self-leveling means bond will consequently level itself when it is poured in the focal point of room. Be that as it may, this isn’t the situation. Self-leveling implies that blend of powder and water has low thickness so material is permitted to set itself before setting. After that, with the assistance of measure rake, it is moved to the ideal spot and completing is finished with the assistance of smoother. Self-leveling concrete is unique in relation to conventional concrete materials. It contains polymer changed bond. Self-leveling concrete additionally requires less measure of water for position. It is utilized to make smooth and level surface. Ascend in development exercises in creating countries is the main consideration expected to drive the interest for self-leveling concrete during the conjecture time frame. Notwithstanding, surprising expense of self-leveling concrete contrasted with conventional concrete and less mindfulness in immature nations in Asia and Africa may hamper the self-leveling concrete market.
Based on types, the self-leveling concrete market can be segmented into toppings or overlayment and underlayment. Underlayment is projected to exhibit significant growth rate during the forecast period. Underlayment self-leveling concrete is poured on existing subfloor surface before installation of tiles, floor coverings, etc. Rapid growth in industrialization and commercialization, and increase in residential applications are attributed to drive the demand for underlayment self-leveling concrete during the forecast period. Self-leveling overlayment concrete is used for decorative purpose. Decoration can be done by mixing self-leveling overlayment concrete with integral color.
Based on application, the self-leveling concrete market can be segmented into commercial and residential. The commercial segment accounted for major share of the market in 2016. It is projected to be a key application segment during the forecast period. It is also anticipated to exhibit significant growth rate compared to that of the residential segment in the near future. Rise in the number of commercial complexes, retail stores, educational buildings, new restaurants, renovation of existing restaurants, shops in developing as well as developed regions is the prominent factor boosting the demand for self-leveling concrete.
Based on region, self-leveling concrete market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific accounted for major share of the self-leveling concrete market in 2016. It is likely to remain the dominant region during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is also expected to exhibit significant growth rate compared to other regions during the forecast period. The most populous countries in the world such as India and China are the prominent consumers of self-leveling concrete. Rise in demand for commercial and residential projects in these countries and government initiatives toward development of industrialization hubs, educational institutes, and health care institutes are propelling the demand for self-leveling concrete in these countries during the forecast period. After Asia Pacific, Europe is anticipated to exhibit significant share of the self-leveling concrete market during the forecast period
