Future Growth Potential of Additive Manufacturing Technology in the Construction Industry

Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies have been undergoing considerable technological growth in recent years. The technology is playing an instrumental role in transforming several industries, such as automotive, aerospace, medical, and oil and gas. Due to the advantages of AM technology, it is now witnessing immense traction from the construction industry.

The construction industry uses additive manufacturing for building homes and structures in a faster and more sustainable manner. Poly jet and powdered inkjet printing technologies are used to design and model miniature concepts of structures or buildings, and in some cases, rapid prototyping.

This analysis provides an in-depth analysis of the advantages of additive manufacturing adoption. It also covers the current state and impact of additive manufacturing technologies on the construction industry.
