3D printing allows construction of 3D printed structures, houses, and bridges. It allows construction of designs with flexibility, construction time optimization, cost, environmental factors and error reduction. Structural components are built layer-by-layer from the high-performance concrete that is emitted from the nozzle with no framework or any vibrations. This technology is bringing new and innovative architectural ideas and completely varies to the present architectural structures.
Furthermore, 3D concrete printing technology paves ways for limitless rich décor with new shapes and elements and minimizes waste, compared to current technology that makes new constructions more expensive and difficult. Constructions printed in 3D provides immense speed for construction making complex structures easy with high performance concrete.
Increasing construction activities in emerging economies is driving growth of the market. However, high initial cost associated with process and lack of awareness regarding this technology is restraining growth of 3D Concrete Printing market.

Walls segment is projected to have the highest market share in 3D concrete printing over the forecast period, as this technology offers wall construction with detail. Moreover, it is convenient to use and saves time. Similarly, ready-mix concrete segment has a largest market share in the 3D concrete printing market, as it provides less labor cost, consumes less space on the site and has good quality. Residential segment is projected to be the largest market in the 3D concrete printing market, owing to rise in residential construction.
Global 3D Concrete Printing Market Outlook
In 2016, the pedestrian bridge was built for the first time in the world printed in 3D developed by ACCIONA. The bridge was 12 meters long and 1.75 meter in width. The world’s largest printed construction was designed by Universal Architecture, a Dutch company, which used sand to create stone-like material. The WinSun, a Chinese company, recently constructed 10 houses in 24 hours using 3D concrete printing with per house costing US$ 5000.
The major players operating in 3D concrete printing market include WinSun Global, Universe Architecture, Sika, Carilliom Plc., Fosters + Partners, Skanska, DUS Architecture, and LafargeHolcim.
