Rapid strength concrete, a construction material, has the ability to provide high early strength in comparison to traditional Portland cement-based concrete; thereby, providing the end-users with a reduced project length and a turnaround time advantage. Rapid strength concrete is available in the market in numerous product types with a large range of strength and setting time characteristics. Additionally, rapid strength concrete can be prepared for special exposure conditions, such as resistance to sulfates or alternate thawing. Some of the variants currently available globally can harden and attain high strength in a matter of approximately 4 hours after being poured. Rapid strength concrete is primarily used in repair and new construction activities in various major application areas. In the global rapid strength concrete report, we have considered the revenue being generated by the sales of rapid strength concrete as a whole product.
The rapid strength concrete offers various advantages in comparison to Portland cement-based concrete, such as accelerated construction, flexibility in construction schedules (ability to choose the strengthening time), and environment-friendliness. It has been gaining popularity in the recent years as an alternative to the traditional construction materials. Although the aforementioned concrete provides the builders and residents with many other major advantages, its usage is still majorly limited to the North American and European countries.
