Market Synopsis of 4D Printing Market Market Scenario: 4D printing is still an emerging technology which is an advancement to 3D printing. 4D printing allows the components to transform into another shape when exposed to heat or humidity or any other environmental stimuli. This technology advances the shape creation process beyond 3D printing, which results into an additional design flexibility that can lead to new types of products which can adjust its functionality in response to the environment, in a pre-programmed manner.

The study indicates that 4D printing technology is expected to be commercialized by 2019. The study indicates that the 4D printing technology would revolutionize the printing technologies. The study indicates that to overcome the existing issue to train and program the material after 3D printing. It has to heat up and stretched and then again cooled down to gain the desired shape 4D printing is introduced. This comfort of effortless manufacturing of things with desired structure boosts the 4D printing market. The study reveals that exploration of 4D printing technology would develop new products to benefit the customers.

The 4D printing market is segmented on the basis of application and region. The application segment consists of aerospace and defense, healthcare, automotive, construction, clothing, utility and others. Many research centers like NASA are working over 4D printing technology to develop new products. A recent news dated April, 2017 says that NASA is developing a sort of chainmail to protect its spacecraft from meteors using 4D printing.

The global 4D printing market is expected to grow at USD ~162 Million by 2022, at ~39% of CAGR between 2019 and 2022.
