4D printing is defined for this market study as the technology in which the fourth dimension entails a change in form or function after the 3D printing of Programmable Material (PM). In other words, 4D printing allows objects to be 3D printed and then to self-transform in shape and material property when exposed to a pre-determined stimulus such as submersion in water, or exposure to heat, pressure, current, ultraviolet light, or some other source of energy.

4D printing technology is expected to be commercialized in 2019. The global 4D printing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 42.95% between 2019 and 2025. The market is segmented on the basis of material segments into programmable carbon fiber, programmable wood grain, and programmable textiles. The programmable carbon fiber segment is expected to be the largest contributor to the overall market, with a share of ~62% of the market, in 2019.
