A Quarter of All New Buildings in Dubai Will Be 3D Printed by 2030

By eliminating cement from the concrete mix and utilizing geopolymer, a fire-resistant and robust alternative, the construction industry can contribute significantly to sustainability efforts.

The initiative for Dubai to 3D print 25% of new buildings by 2030 is making significant progress, with local companies like 3DXB and AC3D in advanced talks with contractors and developers. These endeavours are poised to commence projects as early as 2025, marking a significant stride toward cost-efficient and innovative construction methods.

Despite the traditional caution of the construction industry towards new technology, 3D printing presents a quicker, more cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable approach to building new homes. It also holds promise in addressing global housing crises and providing swift construction solutions in disaster-stricken areas.

By eliminating cement from the concrete mix and utilising geopolymer, a fire-resistant and robust alternative, the construction industry can contribute significantly to sustainability efforts.

Regulatory support, evident in Dubai's approval of building regulations for 3D printing in 2021, is facilitating the integration of this cutting-edge approach.

Dubai's pioneering steps in 3D construction printing have already seen landmarks like the world's largest 3D-printed villa by 3DXB, setting the stage for transformative changes in the construction landscape.

As the market for 3D construction printing is projected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2025, the industry's gradual acceptance of this technology may signal a shift toward more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally conscious building practices.
