DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 26, 2017 — The "4D Printing Market - Forecasts from 2017 to 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The 4D Printing market is projected to witness a CAGR of 40.30% to be of worth US$152.782 million by 2022, from US$28.103 million in 2017.
4D printing is an advanced process for printing customizable smart materials wherein an object is 3D printed using a programmable material. It enables the object to change its shape over time by using UV light, change in temperature, and other internal or external stimuli. The technology leads to reduced resource consumption and lesser energy wastage. Growing demand for technological innovation across various end-use industries is further contributing to the market growth. However, factors such as high development cost, potential safety hazards, and rising issues regarding intellectual property rights will hinder the growth of global 4D printing market during the forecast period.
Geographically, North America is projected to be the dominant region till the end of the forecast period due to initialization of 4D printing technology coupled with high investments in R&D in the region. APAC region will also witness a considerable regional market growth due to technological developments taking place in the region.
