Global 3D concrete printing market is projected to grow from $ 30.56 million in 2018 to $ 57.89 million by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for complex structures at affordable rates and rising number of construction projects. 3D concrete printing offers a quick and cost-efficient way of building homes. Large-scale, cement-based 3D printing disposes the need for conventional molding by precisely placing, or solidifying, specific volumes of material in sequential layers by a computer-controlled positioning process. This 3D printing approach includes three general stages: data preparation, concrete preparation and component printing.

3D concrete printing helps in developing complex building geometries, providing better safety and more precision, and generating less waste, resulting in the construction of complex building structures at an affordable rate. Moreover, rapid urbanization and industrialization with impending applications of 3D concrete printing technology in other sectors such as defense is expected to fuel market growth in the near future. The lack of awareness about automation techniques in the construction industry is a major challenge hindering growth of global 3D concrete printing market.

In terms of technique, global 3D concrete printing market has been categorized into extrusion-based and power-based. Of these techniques, extrusion-based segment accounted for majority of the global market for 3D concrete printing market in 2018 and is anticipated to register a healthy growth rate during the forecast period, backed by its capability to produce large-scale building components with complex geometrical structures. Moreover, extrusion-based technique majorly uses conventional construction materials, owing to which it is one of the most commonly used 3D concrete printing technique for building and infrastructure.

Asia Pacific is a prominent market for global 3D concrete printing market players. The growth of the Asia Pacific market for 3D concrete printing can be majorly attributed to rapid industrialization in the region’s construction industry. China and India are the leading countries that are primarily engaged in the development of innovative manufacturing goods across Asia Pacific Region.

Major companies are making huge investments to develop machines that can construct buildings on a large scale. The demand for such printers will rise in the future due to rapid industrialization and urbanization. Some of the leading players in global 3D concrete printing market are Acciona S.A., Skanska AB, LafargeHolcim Ltd, Sika AG and HeidelbergCement AG.
