honeycomb core materials market

   January 24 2017

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the honeycomb core materials market looks bright with opportunities in the aerospace, defense, and marine industries. The global honeycomb core materials market is expected to reach an estimated $689 million by 2021 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2016 to 2021. The major driver for the growth of this market is increasing demand for lightweight materials in the aerospace and defense industries.

In this market, aerospace, defense, and marine are the major end use industries. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the aerospace segment is expected to show above average growth during the forecast period.

Within the honeycomb core materials market, the aerospace segment is expected to remain the largest application by both value and volume. Expected increasing aircraft production and increasing demand for lightweight materials in modern aircrafts to reduce the structural weight and improve fuel economy are the major driving forces that spur growth for this segment over the forecast period.

By product type, nomex honeycomb by value and aluminum honeycomb by volume is expected to remain the largest market over the forecast period due to growing demand in aerospace and defense industries.

North America is expected to remain the largest market during the forecast period due to presence of major aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and part fabricators and increasing demand for lightweight materials.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to growth of end use industries and increasing use of lightweight materials in aerospace.

For business expansion, this report suggests innovation and new product development for achieving higher strength and stiffness, better acoustic properties, and formability in all directions.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the addition of a lightweight rubber membrane in honeycomb cores to reduce noise in aircraft and cost efficient production of honeycomb core with homogenous skin bonding. Hexcel, The Gill Corporation, Euro-Composites, and Plascore are among the major suppliers of honeycomb core materials.
