A report by Research and Markets predicts the market for 3D printing in concrete will grow from $US 24.5 million last year to $US 56.4 million by 2021.

By concrete type, the market is divided into ready-mix concrete, precast concrete, shotcrete, high-density concrete and other.
3Dprint.com reports that a more than doubling of global growth will be led by the Asia Pacific. China, in particular, leads the world in growth of adoption for the niche application.
