DUBLIN, Jan. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Structural Core Materials Market by Type (Foam, Honeycomb, and Balsa), Outer Skin Type (GFRP, CFRP, and NFRP), End-use Industry (Aerospace, Wind Energy, Marine, Transportation, and Construction), and Region - Global Forecasts to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global structural core materials market is projected to grow from USD 1.52 Billion in 2017 to USD 2.32 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period.
he increasing number of patents filed for structural core materials by global players, growing manufacturing industries, and continuous agreements, partnerships & joint ventures, expansions, new product & technology launches, and mergers & acquisitions activities undertaken by various companies are key factors driving the global structural core materials market.
The global structural core materials market is segmented on the basis of type, outer skin type, end-use industry, and region. Based on type, the structural core materials market has been further segmented into foam, honeycomb, and balsa. Foam is expected to be the fastest-growing type of structural core materials. Foam core imparts strength and stiffness while keeping the composite and non-composite structures lightweight. Rapid growth in the wind energy industry, wind turbine blade manufacturing, and emergence of China and other Asian countries as major wind energy producers are propelling the consumption of foam core, thereby significantly driving the structural core materials market.
North America led the structural core materials market, in terms of value, in 2016, owing to high demand for honeycomb core materials from the aerospace and wind energy end-use industries. Established players, such as Hexcel Corporation (US) and The Gill Corporation (US) are accelerating their efforts to increase the production of honeycomb and foam core materials to meet the increasing demand from aircraft and wind blade manufacturers. Therefore, increasing application of honeycomb and foam core materials in the aerospace and wind energy end-use industries is expected to drive the structural core materials market.
