Impressive results amid global turbulence, expands globally

Cobod, a Denmark-based global leading 3D construction printing provider, has publicly unveiled its 2022 annual report, showcasing the company’s financial performance and strategic expansions despite global economic fluctuations.

In line with Denmark’s corporate transparency laws, the report, published by the unlisted company, says that despite the global chaos caused by the outbreak of the war in Ukraine and subsequent economic turbulence, Cobod experienced a robust growth of 40%, pushing its sales from 11 million Euros to nearly 16 million Euros. I Euro is equal to US$ 1.08.

The company said it underscored its robust and financially sound business model, being profitable for the fourth year in a row, with profits of almost 1 million Euros. The company continues to differentiate itself by concentrating on the development and sales of 3D construction printers, leaving the execution of construction projects to its global network of clients, distributors and partners, a strategy that has clearly borne fruit.

In 2022, Cobod fortified its alliances by inviting industry titans General Electric, Holcim, and Cemex into its shareholders’ circle alongside PERI. Joint ventures were forged with Egyptian construction powerhouse Orascom and Indonesia’s Bakrie Group, reflecting Cobod’s commitment to a partnership model.

Cobod said it expanded its global footprint by launching regional competence centers and offices in Miami, USA, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, effectively broadening its services to encompass the Americas, Asia, and Australia. Future plans include the establishment of a new regional hub in Dubai to service the Middle East and Africa, while Europe will continue to be served from its Copenhagen base.

Henrik Lund-Nielsen, founder and general manager of Cobod, said: “Throughout 2022, Cobod solidified its lead in 3D construction printer sales, outperforming all other suppliers, just as in previous years. Since the advent of 3D construction printers, Cobod has sold more printers than all other suppliers. Combined.”

This market dominance is clearly reflected in the number of 3D printed buildings worldwide. Cobod’s 3D printers have been involved in the creation of 52 different buildings globally by the end of 2022, accounting for approximately 40% of the world’s 130 3D printed structures. This dominance was even more pronounced in 2022, with Cobod’s 3D printers contributing to the construction of 31 out of the 55 new 3D printed buildings, nearly 60% of all new 3D printed buildings made that year.

Lund-Nielsen concluded his remarks by stating, “With the recent unveiling of the nearly 1,000 m² luxury horse stable by Printed Farms, Florida, Cobod doesn’t just lead in the sales of printers and in the amount of 3D printed projects, but now also holds all relevant 3D construction printing records. Our printers have constructed the world’s largest 3D printed building, the fastest build (three buildings in eight days by GUtech, Oman), and the tallest structure (a three-story villa standing at 9.9 meters by Dar Al Arkan, Saudi Arabia).”

Cobod says its 2022 performance, as seen in its financial results, global expansion, and industry records, signifies the company’s dedication to driving innovation and collaboration in the construction industry, revolutionizing the way buildings are constructed worldwide.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
