Balsa Core Materials Market Overview:
Global Balsa Core Materials Market was valued at $190 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $272 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 5.3% from 2017 to 2023. Balsa core possesses high compressive properties including enhanced thermal insulation and acoustic absorption. This material is widely applicable in wind energy, aerospace, marine, construction, and transportation sectors.
The global balsa core material market is driven by increase in demand for lightweight materials from various end-use industries such as construction and marine among others, and high insulation feature that makes its suitable for use in the growing aerospace industry. Balsa core materials have high minimum density and absorb large amount of resins during lamination, which are expected to hamper the growth in the near future.
Global Balsa Core Materials Market: Segmentation
The global balsa core materials market is segmented based on type, end-use industry, and geography. Based on type, it is bifurcated into monolayer and multilayer. On the basis of end-use industry, it is divided into wind energy, aerospace, marine, transportation, construction, and others. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Top Investment Pockets
In 2016, the wind energy segment accounted for approximately less than two-fifths share of the global market. The wind energy and marine segments are anticipated to be the top investment pockets, owing to the growth in demand for lightweight materials in end-use industries in developing regions.
Asia-Pacific Balsa Core Materials Market
The consumption of balsa core materials in Asia-Pacific is expected to increase, owing to stable economic growth, and growth in marine and aerospace industries. Rise in demand for light weighing materials in aerospace industries is anticipated to drive the demand for balsa core materials in this region. In addition, the incorporation of nanotechnology in next-generation composites is anticipated to present new opportunities for market development.
