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.
