3D Printing Construction Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increase the adoption of building information modeling
Increase the market growth of 3D printing construction due to adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) which is one of the major factor. BIM is the foundation of digital transformation in the engineering, architecture, and infrastructure industry. It is an extremely collaborative approach which allows architects, engineers, manufacturers, real estate developers, contractors, and other infrastructure specialists to design, plan, and create a structure or building in a single 3D manner.
- Rising investments in renewable energy infrastructure
Due to investments in renewable power generation capacities, increase the market's growth, which is expected to drive the 3D printing construction market in the forecast period. A huge number of power generation companies are investing in renewable energy sources, especially in the European USA and Asian countries.
- Increase number of government initiatives for spreading awareness
The governments are endorsing renewable energy sources by offering incentives and subsidies to renewable power generation companies globally. The Australian government invest approx. $600 million in subsidies to wind power generators. This is anticipated to increase the demand for services which has provided by construction companies, thus driving the market during the forecast period.
- Inherently green technology
For build energy efficient buildings and reduce construction costs, the building construction companies are gradually using green construction techniques. Green construction refers to the using of sustainable building materials and construction processes to produce energy-efficient buildings with nominal environmental impact
- Technological advancement
Due to technological advancements, the abilities of simulation software is advanced to attain advanced simulating printing and achieve better coordination between industrial printing parts and simulation software. This helps to upsurge the process for optimize machine performance, reliability and decrease material waste.
- Rapid urbanization
Rapid urbanization in the world increase the demand of 3D printing construction market. Due to reduced material consumption, improved safety, injuries of construction workers in the fields, less reliance on human resources, durable and sustainable infrastructure are encouraging companies to adopt this technology, better branding and market share will boost new market opportunities for the market's growth rate.
The negative impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the supply chain, as well as the high cost of raw materials, would act as market restraints, further challenging the market growth rate. The increasing demand for large capital investments, combined with the availability of limited-size printers, will stymie the expansion of the 3D printing construction market over the forecast period. The inability to carry large objects and the lack of handle support in 3D printing construction are the primary market restraints that will slow the market's growth rate.
