The global market for plastering and spraying machines is expected to grow steadily with a CAGR of about 7%. The major driver for this growth will be high-rise buildings in the coming years. Most high rise buildings for residential use focus on nuclear families and provide amenities like swimming pools, gyms, clubhouses, etc to motivate buyers. These amenities, in turn, enhance the opportunities for plastering and spraying machine manufacturers. Further, since the supervision required for these machines when they are in operation is minimal, there are no major safety concerns for the workers. High rise buildings for residential use also focus on locating their projects close to public transport, desirable neighbourhood, and other facilities, etc. Another factor that will aid future growth prospects for plastering and spraying machines is the increasing focus on green buildings. Impact from carbon emission and depleting raw material availability are also factors that will contribute to the growth of opportunities for plastering and spraying machine vendors.
The market for plastering and spraying machines is pretty fragmented across the globe and faces stiff competition from several vendors in the Asia Pacific region with an emphasis on India and China. A healthy and growing investment in residential construction, however, provides significant opportunities for the vendors despite competition. However, awareness of these machines continues to be low within the construction industry bringing up the need to educate the end users about the advantages of these machines and the savings potential.
Advantages of Plastering and Spraying Machines
The mortar mix in these machines is built into them so that the material can be mixed and dumped straight on to the pumper. The mixed material is then pumped down to the hose providing a constant stream of the plaster. Since the brown and scratch coats of the natural lime plaster for at least 20 minutes, a secondary mixer at the site is beneficial since you can operate the two mixers to maintain a continuous flow. The ease of application and the speed are reckoned as the most beneficial factors of these machines. However, it does take some human power to work with these machines, though significantly less than a crew applying the plaster by hand. It also gets a lot easier cutting in quickly around the ceiling and timbers rendering the whole process less challenging and tiresome.
Compare the functioning of these machines with transporting all the mud through a scaffolding all the way up, the manpower needed and safety risk, the benefit of having these machines on your site becomes immediately apparent.
Further, when you look at the overall manpower requirement when plastering is done the traditional way and with a machine doing part of the work, you can immediately see the money and time you can save with these machines. In markets where finding adequate manual labour is a challenge these machines can be immensely helpful too. Construction industry itself is labour intensive and every aspect that helps in reducing the manpower needs can be of immense help in the industry even in thickly populated geographies like China or India.

The market for plastering and spraying machines can be segmented into two i.e., residential construction segment and commercial construction segment. Both these segments are expected to experience healthy growth in the coming years aided by the focus from federal governments in the Asia Pacific region in particular on providing affordable housing to the growing population. The commercial segment will also include other infrastructure development like roads and allied amenities such as parks, shopping malls, convention centers, etc. Major market share is also likely to come from the APAC region since the population in this region is also experiencing an enhanced rate of urbanisation with higher levels of disposable income in the hands of its middle-class population.
In terms of value, the market for plastering and spraying machines is experiencing a healthy CAGR and the trend is likely to continue over several years to come with a demand for housing and related infrastructure will only keep growing with time.
Working of the Plastering and Spraying Machine
Working principle of these machines is pretty simple. The plastering machine consists of a machine body, plastering trowel, two uprights for supporting the machine’s movement up and down. The uprights are fastened between the floor and roof and the machine is then filled with premixed material. A conveyor belt moves the premixed material to the plastering towel. When the machine moves up and down the wall gets efficiently plastered.
