By 2030, 25% of Dubai’s buildings will be 3D printed, it has been revealed.
This announcement was made by the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
In a series of updates through his official Twitter account, Dubai’s Ruler unveiled the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy.
HH Sheikh Mohammed said he expects 3D printing will add $300bn to the global economy by 2025.
“It will also help reduce costs, [the] need for low-skilled labour, and save time.
“Dubai Future Agenda was approved few days ago, [and] we started to execute it by launching strategies [and] initiatives that add value to our economy,” HH Sheikh Mohammed said in one update.
“3D printing will be part of every aspect of our lives,” he added.
Dubai Future Foundation, Dubai Municipality, Dubai Health Authority, and Dubai Holding are expected to deploy the 3D printing strategy in the construction, medical, and consumer sectors.
