What is 3D Printing and How it can Boost Your Business in The Current Digital Era?

Technology visionaries and Futurists around the globe have quoted 3D Printing as one of the most technological revolution known to mankind, predicting that it will radically change the manufacturing and construction sectors because of this technology. In a more optimistic view manufacturers would be able to produce goods domestically, with almost no wastages in materials reducing the requirement for outsourcing projects. 3D printing would be able to be executed by using almost every material and in every form with unconventional applications such as bio-printing organic tissues and organs which could extend human life expectancy and improve the quality of living of the people. The global market for 3D printing is expected to reach US$120 billion by 2020 and about US$300 billion by 2025, driven by research and product development activities and the increasing need for more creativity in the design process. 3D printing technology will ease the production process in various sectors, offering the prospects for major leaps in the world of industry.

Reports indicate that 3D printing technology would be able to cut construction costs to almost 50% to 70%, and cutting down labour costs by 50% to 80%. In addition, this technology would help to reduce the waste produced in construction operations by up to 60%, which will reflect positively on the economic returns of the sector and contribute to sustainable development

It has also been clearly stated that the key goal of this strategy is to ensure that 25 per cent of buildings in Dubai are based on 3D printing technology by 2030, and that they would raise this percentage with the development of global technology as well as growth in the market demand. As per the Research by the top research firms it is said that this technology is capable of transforming the construction sector by lowering costs, reducing implementation time for projects, reduce the manpower requirements and mitigate the waste that is generated during these construction processes.

The major focus would be on developing 3D printed teeth, bones, artificial organs, hearing aids, medical and surgical devices .
The consumer products sectors would be focusing on development of household items, optics, fashion jewellery, children's games and fast food by using the applications of 3D Printing. The volume of consumer products projected to be printed by 3D technology in Dubai is expected to reach Dhs2.8 billion by 2025.
