Sika has been developing a concrete 3D printing system, including material supply, mixing technology, printheads, printers, and software control but did not share much market activity until now. Recently, it announced a partnership with Pikus 3D (subsidiary of Pikus Concrete) to deliver finished concrete products in the U.S. market. While other construction companies are entering the space through acquiring startups, co-developing applications, or helping with hardware improvement, Sika is one of the few companies that developed the whole system in-house. With the new partnership, it will also be able to sell printed parts. This will reduce the adoption barrier, especially for contractors and designers that have no 3D printing experience.
