A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on 3D printing in construction market provides an in-depth analysis of segments and
sub-segments in the global as well as regional 3D printing in construction
market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro
indicators on the global and regional 3D printing in construction market over
the short term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation
of trends, forecast and dollar values of global 3D printing in construction
market. According to the report, the global 3D printing in construction market
is projected to grow at a CAGR of 33.4% over the forecast period of 2019-2025.
3D printing is a computer-controlled sequential layering of
material that creates three-dimensional shapes. 3D printing in construction is
used o create construction components. Various 3D printing methods are used in
the construction sector that includes extrusion, foam, powder bonding, and
additive welding. The advantages of these technologies in construction include
low labor costs, faster construction, greater integration of function, less
waste production, and increased accuracy.
The rising application of 3D printing in building
construction owing to the rise in demand for high performance and ease in
constructing complex designs led to the growth of 3D printing in construction
market. Further, 3D printing helps to create lightweight components such as
panels and walls and maintains structural integrity with lowered transportation
and handling costs. The wasted raw material from printing such as failed prints
and concrete waste can be reused. It reduces the risk faced by human labor
while working at construction sites. Additionally, rising preferences of
contractors and consumers towards eco-friendly, cost-efficient, and modern
building techniques favor the expansion of 3D printing in construction market.
On the flip side, low market awareness about the use of 3D printing in the
construction sector hinders the growth of 3D printing in construction market.
Moreover, technological development creates several opportunities in global 3D
printing in construction market.
Geographically, 3D printing in construction market is
divided into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World.
North America is expected to have a dominant share in the global 3D printing in
construction market. The growing adoption of advanced technology in North
America led to the growth of 3D printing in construction market in North
America. Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow in the global 3D printing
in construction market with the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The
presence of a large number of manufacturers in the region contributes to the
growth of Asia-Pacific 3D printing in construction market. Growing research and
development activities in Japan and India creates several growth opportunities
for the expansion of 3D printing in construction market in Asia-Pacific. Europe
has a healthy CAGR in global 3D printing in construction market owing to
technological development in the region.
