US 3D Printing Giant AC3D Sets Up Shop in UAE, Vowing a Greener Construction Future

US-based construction 3D printing leader AC3D is expanding its operations to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The company focuses on low-rise housing, commercial real estate, and infrastructure projects, aiming to revolutionize construction with a faster, more sustainable approach.

AC3D's Green Pledge:

  • Up to 1.5 times more cost-effective construction
  • Reduced labor requirements
  • Sustainable 3D printing materials
  • Faster construction times – potentially quadrupled

AC3D predicts significant growth in the 3D construction printing market, reaching $2.5 billion USD by 2025, a jump from $500 million USD in 2023.

Beyond Efficiency, Environmental Benefits Abound:

According to AC3D founder and CEO Boris Kozlov, their technology offers a multitude of environmental advantages:

  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Minimized construction waste
  • Energy-efficient homes
  • Ability to create unique architectural designs
  • Increased resistance to natural disasters

Locally Assembled with Sustainability in Mind:

AC3D's construction 3D printers will be assembled within the UAE, aligning with global sustainability efforts like the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The company emphasizes that the construction industry is a major culprit when it comes to:

  • Waste generation (being the world's number one producer)
  • Global carbon footprint (with cement production alone contributing 10% of CO2 emissions)

Addressing Housing Shortages & Economic Benefits:

AC3D highlights the broader economic and humanitarian impact of 3D construction printing. A single 3D printer has the potential to construct over 50 houses annually, offering a significant solution to the global housing shortage projected to affect 1.6 billion people by 2025.

Beyond Printing: A One-Stop Shop for Construction Innovation

In addition to manufacturing 3D printing systems, AC3D offers a comprehensive suite of services:

  • Development of proprietary 3D printing materials
  • Advanced software solutions to streamline construction processes
  • Engineering and 3D printing of entire buildings

AC3D's entry into the UAE market signals a promising future for sustainable and efficient construction practices in the region.
