Using eco-friendly materials and reducing construction waste will increase the use of 3D printing in construction.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Jan. 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Transparency Market Research Inc. – The 3D printing in construction industry was worth US$ 1.2 billion in 2021. It is expected to increase at a CAGR of 40.3% from 2022 to 2031. The market is expected to reach US$ 3.3 billion by the end of 2031. 3D printing by minimizing waste and labor costs can reduce construction costs significantly. In addition to allowing the efficient use of materials, the technology allows construction processes to be cost-effective.

Compared to traditional methods, 3D printing allows for faster construction. A layer-by-layer construction method can accelerate project timelines by enabling complex structures to be developed in a shorter period. It allows for intricate and customized designs that were previously difficult or impossible to produce using traditional construction methods. Buildings can be structurally sound and innovative at the same time when architects and builders employ innovative and unique designs.

Worldwide 3D Printing in Construction Market: Growth Drivers

One of the main advantages of 3D printing is its ability to minimize material waste, making it a sustainable practice. In line with global efforts towards environmental friendliness, some 3D printing techniques are incorporating green and recyclable materials. The integration of robotics and automation in 3D printing processes enables greater efficiency and precision. Construction laborers can work steadily, devoid of long pauses, with these automated systems, which are more effective and quicker.

3D printing is witnessing a surge in popularity due to the global need for low-cost housing solutions. This technology carries the potential for quick and cost-efficient solutions to housing deficits, leading construction and development firms to take notice of it.

3D printing technology in construction has been receiving attention and support in the form of grants, subsidies, and favorable policy measures from various government bodies, invigorating the industry to innovate and incorporate emerging technologies. The continuous development of 3D printing technology in the construction industry is improving aspects such as the variety of materials being used, the speed of the process, and the scale of operations. The traditional construction approach introduces risks to worker safety, but through automation offered by 3D printing, these hazards can be significantly decreased.

Major players in the Global 3D Printing in Construction Market:

The market for 3D printers now includes diverse models like gantry-mounted printers, polar machines, and mobile robots. With these printers, a variety of structures like homes, offices, and bridges can be created. Despite the evident advantages of 3D printing, its adoption rate remains limited. To tap into the potential of the 3D printing in the construction market, providers are focusing on developing more advanced products.

Construction sector is of a conservative nature, heavily relying on traditional methods of operation. Hence, it is struggling to integrate 3D printing technology and has yet to fully embrace it. Despite this, several companies have initiated the use of 3D printing for larger scale projects. These include:
