Global 4D Printing Market was valued US$ XX Bn in 2017 and is expected to reach US$ XX Bn by 2026 at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.

Need for reduction in manufacturing & process cost and drive for sustainable environment are the major factors rising the growth of global 4D printing market.Early adoption in aerospace, military & defense, healthcare and automotive industries; potential for innovation and product developments provides lot of opportunities for global 4D printing market.Complexity in intellectual property rights and high initial costs of development hampers the market growth of 4D printing market. Compliance with regulatory and performance standards is the challenges for this market.

The global 4D printing market is segmented on the basis of material i.e. programmable carbon fiber, programmable wood grain, and programmable textiles. The programmable carbon fiber segment is expected to be the largest contributor to the overall market, with a share of 62% of the market, in 2019.


Military & defense is expected to emerge as the largest growing segment by 2026, because of several benefits offered by the technology, such as the ability to repair and self-replicate itself in response to external environmental conditions. Also, The U.S. Army Research Center is coming up with new technologies, such as a soldier’s uniform that can offer protection against toxic gases effectively or alter its own camouflage while traveling through different climates. Aerospace is projected to follow the military & defense sector, holding a market share of over 25% by 2026. The space memory technique used in 4D printing would help in forming a self-deploying structure, which is applicable in the aerospace segment; for instance, to create air ventilation. Additionally, Airbus S.A.S. is developing a technology to cool its engines using smart material that reacts to temperature.

North America and Europe markets are expected to account for a higher CAGR with XX % in the forecast period because of its extensive R&D techniques to enhance printing. MEA market is expected to gain a positive traction in the forecast period on account of technological enhancements and adoption of 4D techniques for printing. The key players in the 4D printing industry include Stratasys Ltd, Hewlett-Packard Inc, Autodesk Inc, ExOneInc, 3D Systems Corporation and Organovo Holdings Inc.
