Market Segmentation


Segmentation-Global 3D Concrete Printing Market


The market has been segmented based on concrete type, application and end-use. On the basis of concrete type, the market is segmented into ready mix concrete, precast concrete, shotcrete and high density concrete. Ready Mix Concrete accounted for the largest market share of 36.26% in 2016, with a market value of USD 10.2 million. It is used extensively as construction can be sped up, cement consumption can be reduced, along with versatility in uses. Precast Concrete was the second-largest market in 2016, valued at USD 9.0 million in 2016; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.49%. On the basis of application, residential segment accounted for the largest market share of 37.29% in 2016. Also, it is the highest growing application segment in the market due to the increasing population and urbanization. There is seen a shift in the population in the urbanized areas, especially in developing nations. This transition leads to the increasing demand for homes and residential complexes. This induces the market for 3D concrete printing in coming time. The segment is expected to grow at 15.35% CAGR during the forecast period. Industrial was the second-largest market in 2016, valued at USD 8.7 million in 2016; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.43%.


On basis of end-use, the market is segmented into walls, roofs, floor and staircase. Walls accounted for the largest market share of 32.60% in 2016. The walls in 3D concrete printing is one of the most essential structures which are pre-fabricated either on site or in the factory. The 3D concrete printer is based on the principles of contour crafting, which is a process that 3D prints large-scale objects layer by layer. The segment accounts for the largest market share of 33% in the global 3D concrete printing market in 2016. Roof was the second-largest market in 2016, valued at USD 8.3 million in 2016; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.90%.
