With an estimated value of $750 billion by 2031, 3D printing in the construction industry seems to have a bright future ahead of it. The production method offers several advantages at different levels: a reduction of materials required and greater geometric freedom to name a few. The technology can even be used to build houses in space!
It will probably be a few more years before we see a concrete 3D printer on every construction site, but developments are moving fast. 3D printed communities have already been seen in Texas and the first mosque with 3D printed walls in Dubai.
