The capability of 3D concrete printing system in the implementation of more sophisticated designs and Increasing construction activities in the emerging economies, especially in China are some of the factors propelling the growth of the global 3D concrete printing market. The efficient use of raw materials with minimal labor requirement contributes in the increasing demand for 3D concrete printing technology in the construction industry. Moreover, the construction process becomes faster with the 3D concrete printing technology, and hence it reduces the overall cost of the construction project, which in turn, increases the demand for 3D concrete printing technology in emerging economies. The high cost of 3D concrete printers and less availability of skilled labor are some of the factors hampering the growth of the global 3D concrete printing market. However, the rapid urbanization and industrialization with impending applications of 3D concrete printing technology in other sectors such as defense is expected to fuel the market growth in the near future.
The 3D concrete printing market can be segmented on the basis of offering, technology, concrete type, product type, and end users. Based on offering, the market is bifurcated into printing services, software, and materials. Software segment can further be segmented into design software, inspection software, and printing software. Based on technology, the market can be bifurcated into extrusion-based technology and powder-based technology. Moreover, the 3D concrete printing market can be segmented on the basis of concrete type into ready-mix concrete, precast concrete, shotcrete, high-density concrete, and others (light-weight concrete and limecrete). Based on product type, the market can be segmented into walls, roofs & floors, staircases, panels & lintels, and others (paving slabs). Based on end users, the market can be segmented into architecture, industrial, agriculture, domestic, and others (defense). Domestic segment can be further segmented into residential and non-residential. Among technology, the extrusion-based segment holds the largest market share in the 3D concrete printing market. This can be attributed to its capability of producing complex geometrical structures used in large-scale building components.
The global 3D concrete printing market is further analyzed on the basis of the geographical regions that are contributing significantly in the growth of the market. North America holds a dominant position in the global 3D concrete printing market, followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. This is mainly owing to the rapid industrialization in the construction industry in the region. The U.S. and Canada are the leading countries that are primarily involved in the development of innovative manufacturing goods across the globe. Asia Pacific is projected to exhibit the fastest growth in the global 3D concrete printing market over the forecast period. The increasing interest of government and regulatory bodies towards green construction activities in the emerging economies such as India and China and rapid industrialization and urbanization are some of the major factors contributing in the growth of the 3D concrete printing market in Asia Pacific.
Some of the key players operating in the global 3D concrete printing market are Apis Cor, Betabram, Contour Crafting Corporation, CSP S.R.L., CyBe Construction, Dus Architects, Foster + Partners, Rohaco, Sika AG, Skanska, and xTreeE among others. In order to sustain in the competitive market, these players adopt various strategies such as acquisitions, mergers, expansions, joint ventures and product development and so on. For instance, in March 2017, Winsun announced the lease of around hundred 3D concrete printers and its relative technical support Al Mobty Contracting Co., a Saudi Arabia-based constructing company. This is expected to build over 1.5 million homes in Saudi Arabia.
