Past experiments have successfully acknowledged the technology’s expertise on all these fronts and the technology is being steadily adopted on a larger scale around the globe. The field of 3D concrete printing is receiving increased focus from construction companies across the globe. These companies mainly focus on experimenting with different concrete mixes and printing machines to bring about further developments in this construction technique.
With construction companies making continuous efforts to bring 3D concrete printing in mainstream construction, the global 3D concrete printing market is projected to gather significant momentum in the next few years. The report provides a 360-degree overview of the market, covering crucial market-related details about the key elements and segments of the market. The report examines the impact of the major growth drivers, challenges, and trends on the market’s future growth prospects, underlining both the most lucrative and the most unprofitable investment areas.
Global 3D Concrete Printing Market: Trends and Opportunities
The rate at which construction companies, researchers, and technologists are coming together in the development of 3D concrete printing techniques is commendable. A variety of concrete mixes, such as shotcrete, ready-mix concrete, limecrete, precast and stamped concrete, and high-density concrete, are already in the market and many more effective mixes are being introduced at a steady pace. Construction companies are increasingly utilizing the technique to formulate building elements such as panels, lintels, roofs, floors, walls, and pavement slabs.
The market is expected to receive a healthy boost from developing regions such as Asia Pacific and some parts of Latin America in the near future. The construction sector in these regions is projected to lead to an increased demand for cost-effective building elements fabricated through 3D concrete printing techniques to complement the several new infrastructure development and building construction projects.
Global 3D Concrete Printing Market: Region-wise Outlook
The report examines the global 3D concrete printing market from a geographical standpoint and segments it into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World. The market for 3D concrete printing in Asia Pacific is currently the fastest-growing regional market, primarily owing to the rising disposable incomes and rising population in the region, which have led to a major rise in new construction projects in the past years. China exhibits attractive opportunities for the Asia Pacific 3D concrete printing market. The growth witnessed by the market in China is due to the presence of some prominent innovators in the country, government backing, rising awareness regarding the benefits of 3D printing techniques, and an expanding set of applications.
Global 3D Concrete Printing Market: Competitive Landscape
Several construction companies are actively experimenting with a variety of 3D printing techniques and more will do so over the forecast period. The Chinese company WinSun constructed 10 houses using 3D concrete printing in under 24 hours recently. The Dutch company Universe Architecture has designed the world’s largest 3D printer that uses sand as a binder for creating a stone-like material.
Over the forecast period, many more companies will utilize 3D concrete printing technologies in a variety of construction activities. The market does not have many companies at present and thus products are limited in variety as well. Hence it faces the issue of lack of standardization. However, as more companies venture in the 3D concrete printing arena, products will become more standardized, sophisticated, and even more cost competitive. Some of the major companies currently operating in the global 3D concrete printing market are WinSun Global, Universe Architecture, Skanska, DUS Architects, Sika, Carilliom Plc., Fosters + Partners, and LafargeHolcim.
