This paper aims to explore the current state of the art and potential of 3D concrete printing and its use in large-scale applications. The study analysed 373 academic research, all of which were obtained from the Scopus database. The review conducted on some crucial issues on development of 3D concrete that included materials and their desirable properties, printer nozzle developments, reinforcement in printing, geopolymers as printing materials, and the use of coarse graded aggregates. This study provides researchers and institutions with an in-depth insight into 3D concrete printing and research trends worldwide and assesses the future of 3D concrete printing in large-scale applications. The requirement of more research on the mechanics of 3D printers, standardising a printer nozzle, the automation of reinforcing processes, and use of coarse graded aggregate for large-scale structural application were identified in this review. It also shows how 3D concrete printing has evolved and changed over time and gives an insight into the future of 3D concrete printing—making this scientometric review a framework for future studies.
