The global structural core materials market size is expected to reach USD 2.80 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. As the wind energy sector continues to flourish, structural core materials are anticipated to rake in a healthy share in the revenue pie. Rising consumer disposable income of people in countries such as U.S., India, and China is leading to expansion of the aerospace and automotive industries, thereby boosting the need for structural core materials for parts and components manufacturing.
In terms of revenue, aerospace was the largest end-use segment, accounting for about 38.0% of the global market in 2016. In the field of aircraft and helicopter engineering, sandwich structures are the preferred choice for lightweight yet high-strength designs. High temperature resistance of cores has further facilitated the demand for these products.
Booming aerospace and construction industries worldwide are unfolding several growth opportunities for the structural core materials market. However, prices of raw materials used for manufacturing could play a crucial role in overall production cost in the future.
DIAB International AB, a major player in the market, tripled its production capacity of advanced foam cores to meet increasing demand from the aerospace industry worldwide. A few companies acquired and merged with each other to enhance their product offerings and expand their global reach. For instance, Gurit Holding AG acquired BASF’s PET structural foam business with the intention of strengthening Gurit’s range of structural core material products. Such strategic initiatives reflect the intensifying competition in the structural core materials market.
