3D Concrete Printing Market Forecast to 2021

3D Concrete Printing Market By Product Type, by Concrete Type, by Software, by End-Use Sector & by Region – Forecast to 2021


3d printerThe implementation of 3D concrete printing technologies is an important strategy taken up by many construction companies and regulatory bodies in recent years. The 3D concrete printing market has been growing in accordance with the global construction industry. With increasing urbanization and industrialization the need for new constructions has increased significantly throughout the world which has played a huge part in providing the necessary momentum to the global 3D concrete printing after the economic slowdown between 2007 and 2009. The recovery of global economy would also boost the demand for this market.

The segments considered for this report are based on the product type, concrete type, software, end-use sector, and region. The segmentation based on product type consists of walls, floors & roofs, panels & lintels and others (staircases and paving slabs). The walls segment is projected to grow at a high growth rate between 2016 and 2021.


3D concrete printing is transforming the construction industry as it is a less expensive process, fast, accurate, and offers affordable housing solutions. Lower material usage and lower labor costs create a less expensive construction method. The report aims at estimating the market size and future growth potential of 3D concrete printing market which is further classified on the basis of product type, concrete type, software, end-use, and region.

The base year considered for the study is 2015 and the market size is forecasted from 2016 to 2021. With the rise in industrialization, the construction sector is expected to play a key role in fueling the growth of the 3D concrete printing market in the next five years.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the 3D concrete printing market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research. The vendor offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall size of the global 3D concrete printing market from the revenue of the key players.

After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. These data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments.

The 3D concrete printing ecosystem comprises 3D concrete printer manufacturers such as DUS Architects (The Netherlands) and Skanska (Sweden), architectural firms and contractors such as Fosters + Partners (U.K.), WinSun Global (China), and raw material suppliers and vendors such Sika (Europe), LafargeHolcim (Europe), Balfour Beatty (U.K.), and Carilliom Plc (U.K.).
