A recent study by COBOD International has found that there are 129 3D printed buildings spread over 105 distinct construction sites, globally – 40% (51 buildings) of which exist thanks to COBOD’s 3D construction printers. The company with the second highest number of 3D printed buildings is Icon, with 15 3D printed buildings, followed by Winsun, Cybe, and xtreeE – each being responsible for the construction of five 3D printed buildings.

Although these numbers may seem low, considering the attention the industry has been getting lately, it is worth noting that almost half of these buildings were constructed last year, alone. According to the study, in 2022, 54 new 3D printed structures were constructed, with COBOD’s printers being responsible for almost 60% of these new 3D printed buildings. The full report and details can be found here.

“It is clear, that when we sell more 3D construction printers than all the rest of the other suppliers combined, then this will be reflected in which 3D printers have made most buildings. The truth cannot be hidden,” said Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder and General Manager of COBOD.

In recent years, COBOD has expanded quickly – selling more than 65 printers, attracting industrial giants like GE Renewable Energy, Holcim, CEMEX, and PERI as key strategic shareholders, and announcing joint ventures with large regional organizations like Orascom, in Egypt, and Bakrie Group, in Indonesia. To support the expanding worldwide customer base, new regional competence centers have been established in Miami and Kuala Lumpur. The company has even published an annual report, which is available here.

“As a market leader, we take it upon ourselves to assure that as much data and transparency are created for the customers as possible, as the industry has been plagued by lots of dreamers and fanciful projects, that were never realized. We have tried our best to compile the complete and objective market overview, and encourage everybody to contact us, should we have missed a project or two such that we may update the database and assure we always provide the most complete information,” said Philip Knudsen, CMO and Head of Marketing and Communications at COBOD.
