Balsa Core Materials Market Overview:

The global balsa core materials market was valued at $199 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $291 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2018 to 2025.

Balsa core material is a cost-effective material, which can be tailored to specific applications. Balsa honeycomb-like cell structures are configured into end grain panels as per specific requirements. Balsa trees grow rapidly, and their core materials are increasingly being used in production of boats, in transportation, wind turbines blades, and structural composite panels. High specific stiffness & rigidity and enhanced moisture resistance make balsa core material suitable for wide range of applications. The sandwich panel of balsa wood cores is used in aircraft construction to reduce weight and achieve high compressive & tensile strength. In the UK and abroad, aerospace designers and aircraft manufacturers are shifting their preference towards balsa wood core material for hovercraft, aircraft, and helicopter manufacture.

The major driving factor that is responsible for the growth of balsa core material market is upsurge in demand for lightweight materials across several end-use industries. Furthermore, growth of aerospace industry across various regions has fueled the market growth. However, high material cost is expected to hinder the market growth. On the contrary, mergers and acquisitions of balsa core material manufactures and technological advancements are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market growth.

The global balsa core materials market is segmented based on type, application, and region. On the basis type, it is bifurcated into monolayer and multilayer. The applications covered in the study include wind energy, aerospace, marine, transportation, construction, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Analyst Review

Balsa core material is a type of honeycomb structure material that is available in a wide range of thickness, density, and form. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to account for a significant share in the global balsa core materials market, owing to large number of installations of wind turbine capacities. Some of the key players in this region have focused on collaborations to cater to the need of continuous supply of balsa core materials. Balsa core material is widely used in the aerospace industry, owing to its lightweight. Moreover, it has structure similar to that of the honeycomb core, and is available in the market in a wide range of thickness, density, and format/finish. Furthermore, it exhibits high compressive property, enhanced thermal insulation, and remarkable acoustic retention, which fuel its adoption, thereby boosting the growth of the market.

There is a growing requirement to increase reliability of wind turbines and ensure that turbines remain workable for 20 years or more. Balsa core material is an advanced composite material, which offers high strength, stiffness, and fatigue resistance to components, and is low priced. The growth of the global wind energy market is projected to be driven by increase in demand for cost-effective & environment-friendly generation systems and implementation of stringent government regulations to reduce emission of greenhouse gases.
