Europe Self-leveling Concrete Market By Type (Underlayment, Topping), Application (Residential Building, Commercial Building), Country (Germany, France, U.K., Italy, Spain, Russia, Turkey, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Rest of Europe) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2026
Self-leveling concrete is polymer transformed cement having high flow property and does not require large amount of water. It gives perfect surfaces which is ready for use in very less time. The advantage of using self-leveling concrete is the faster construction process, smooth surface and highly durability. It also helps in giving flexibility to dissipate stress and counteract cracking, adhesion to an extremely wide variety of subfloors such as wood, metal or carpet etc. and excellent leveling concrete capacity. It is widely used for underlayment and toppings in both commercial and residential buildings.
Self-leveling term was used to differentiate it from the traditional concrete, in which the labour requirement is more and typically stiffer. Now, the self-leveling concrete is being adapted for creating flat and smooth surface with high compressive strength with just the half price of the traditional concrete. It also helps in water resistant and do not promote the growth of microbial contaminates. The microbial controlling property is another major reason that commercial buildings are using the product.
The major factors driving the growth of global self-leveling concrete market is limited or no usage of vibration process.
Europe self-leveling concrete market is projected to register a steady CAGR in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026.
