The growing demand for Industry 4.0 in several regions is driving the growth of the 4D Printing market. The corporal part of smart factories is challenged by the competence of the existing manufacturing systems. This makes additive manufacturing one of the main components of Industry 4.0.

Owing to the need for mass customization in Industry 4.0, modern manufacturing methods are needed. Thus, additive manufacturing is becoming an important technology for manufacturing customized products, due to its capacity to create complex objects with new materials and shapes and increased product quality. Also, simple prototyping is further fueling market demand. Likewise, the product can be tested under various environmental conditions. If there are faults during testing, the same prototype can be recycled to create a new one, thus protecting the environment, along with reducing the cost of its production.

In the material segment, the programmable carbon fiber category captured the largest market share of 59.65% in 2019. It is also assessed to be the leading category, projecting a CAGR of 26.94% by 2028. Carbon fiber is the lightest and strongest (among all the programmable materials discussed) woven material. It is made of carbon. It is expected to dominate the market studied, during the forecast period, due to high stiffness, low weight, and tensile strength.

MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab provides an example of a practical application of the programmable carbon fiber technology. For instance, North America (especially the United States) is expected to gain maximum market share in the future, due to the huge number of carbon fiber production companies and the presence of active innovation facilities, such as MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab.

However, high costs levied on the development of 4D printing are challenging market growth. Thus, the technology is still in the nascent stage. The skill gap is also a major barrier to the expanded use of additive manufacturing. Old-fashioned machining has been trained and consistent for many years, but the majority of engineers are oblivious of how to manufacture parts that are meant for additive manufacturing processes.

The report scope of the global 4D printing market covers the segmentation analysis of material and end-user.

Market by Material:

  • Programmable Textiles
  • Programmable Wood
  • Programmable Carbon Fiber
  • Other Materials

Market by End-user:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Military & Defense
  • Textile
  • Healthcare
  • Others

On the basis of geography, the global 4D printing market has been segmented into four major regions:

  • North America: the United States and Canada
  • Europe: the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Belgium, Poland, and Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific: China, Japan, India, South Korea, Singapore, Australia & New Zealand, and Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of World: Latin America, the Middle East & Africa

Geographically, the North American region is set to be the leading region by 2028. It also held the largest revenue share of 44.68% in 2019. North America has the highest potential in the market studied, considering the presence of 3D printing pioneers, who are supporting the use cases of 4D printing. For instance, ExOne, which is located in the United States, has strong 3D printing capabilities.

The key players involved in the global 4D printing market are:

  • Stratasys Inc
  • Autodesk Inc
  • Hewlett Packard Inc
  • Others

MakerBot, a subsidiary of Stratasys, moved into the next level of 3D printing in May 2020 with the launch of the METHOD Carbon Fiber Editions. The new METHOD Carbon Fiber Editions are designed for facilitating the printing of stronger and accurate parts for manufacturing tools, end-use production, and jigs & fixtures. It can also be utilized for printing metal replacement parts in some applications.

Key findings of the global 4D printing market:

  • North America is both the leading and dominating region in the global market.
  • Advances and collaborations with research institutes are fueling the growth of the market.
