NEWS: 4D Printing Market- Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

4D Printing Market: Summary

The Global is projected to reach a value of USD 510.25 million by 2027 at a CAGR of 42.7%.

The 4D printing is refers to a process through which a 3D printed object transform itself into the another structure, over the influence of the external energy input as light, temperature or other environmental stimuli. It is also identified as 4D bioprinting, active origami, or shape-morphing systems utilizes the same techniques of 3D printing by which the computer-programmed deposition of material in successive layers to create a three-dimensional objects. Global 4D printing market is rising demand for industry 4.0 and emergence of industry 5.0. However, the high cost of development are expected to hamper the growth of the market.

4D Printing Market: Market Dynamics

Market Driver:

  • Rising Demand for Industry 4.0 and Emergence of Industry 5.0
  • There has been rising demand for industry 4.0 and emergence of industry 5.0 will play a significant role for the 4D printing market. The additive manufacturing, also called 3D printing, which is a part of Industry 4.0.
  • The industry 5.0 will help to boost the 4D printing by focusing on the designing process rather than the manufacturing process.
  • The industry 5.0 is excepted to enhance the boundaries of physics on design. For instance in the case of the industry 4.0, for the creation of the next generation aircraft there is a limitation in the manufacturing capabilities. Whereas, in the case of industry 5.0 the process in manufacturing would be improve automated, hence the human is majorly being concentrating on the design of the aircraft.
  • On January 2019, the Essentium, a 3-D printing firm has been increased USD 22 million in a Series A round, led by Materialize and Genesis Park.
  • For example, the future of the additive manufacturing has the capacity to build customize product with the features such as less cost, less wastage of material as well as low energy consumption that is what industry 5.0 lead to offers.
  • Adoption in Military & Defense and Healthcare Sector
  • Growing Need to Reduce Manufacturing and Processing Cost

Market Challenges:

  • High Cost of Development

4D Printing Market: Key Segments
