North America to Contribute Significantly to the Growth of the 4D Printing Industry

North America holds a significant share of the 4D printing industry owing to technological advancements in the region. The United States  accounts for a major share in the overall market due to the rapid adoption of the latest technologies. Moreover, the increasing research activities in the region is also positively impacting the market growth. For instance, the researchers at Self Assembly Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology leveraged Autodesk’s Cyborg  Software and Stratasys 3D printers for the development of materials that can change shape when stimulated by water. Similarly, at the Lee’s lab at Rutgers University, experiments are being performed on materials that would change when triggered by heat. Such research and development (R&D) activities are aiding the market growth of 4D printing.

 

4D Printing: Industry Definition and Segmentation

The addition of the fourth dimension to the 3D printing technology is termed as 4D printing. With the introduction of 4D, the 3D printed objects acquire the potential to change their shape, when stimulated by external conditions such as light, electricity, pressure, and heat, among others. This shape changing phenomenon is based on the materials’ ability to transform over time in response to the stimuli, eliminating the need for human intervention to aid the change.

Based on the type of programmable material, the market is segmented into:

  • Programmable Carbon Fibre
  • Programmable Textiles
  • Programmable Biomaterial
  • Programmable Wood

On the basis of end users, the market is divided into:

  • Medical
  • Aerospace and Defence
  • Automotive 
  • Others

The EMR report looks into the regional markets of 4D printing like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Growing Demand for Innovative and Cost-Effective Products to Augment the Growth of the 4D Printing Industry

The rising demand for innovative products and the growing competition in the manufacturing industry are the key reasons catalysing the growth of the market. The advancements in the 4D printing technology can enable the manufacturers to develop innovative products cost-effectively while offering ease of access and improved efficiency, which is expected to augment the industry growth. As 4D printing can eliminate middlemen and reduced labour force, various companies are increasingly investing in the 4D printing technology to increase profitability owing to the rising labour costs. The 4D printing technology offers the additional benefit of resource management by allowing the use of one system for more than one application as per requirement, thus marking a step towards sustainability. This is increasing the adoption of 4D printing, which is anticipated to augment the market growth.

As greenhouse gas and harmful materials are not released in the production of 4D printing devices, they are increasingly deployed to reduce carbon footprint as the concerns regarding rapid climate change surges. In addition, the biotechnology and healthcare industries are anticipated to be some of the leading investors in 4D printing. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic,  the healthcare industry is leveraging advanced 4D printing technology to customise medical products and equipment benefitting both the healthcare providers and the patients. This, in turn, is increasing the demand for 4D printing, which is expected to propel the market growth.
