Core materials are materials with composite skins which create a sandwich structure-based laminate with properties such as high stiffness and low weight. Core materials are available and produced in a number of forms which include, end-grain balsa wood, poly-vinyl chloride foam, urethane foam, non-woven core fabrics, and a wide variety of honeycomb materials. The structure of core materials is similar to that of a sandwich wherein the material is bonded between two composite skins. The addition of a core in a laminate leads to an increase in the section modulus and provides stiffness to the core material, which can be used to create lightweight structures. Core materials find applications in the production of strong stiff, and lightweight structures for high performance products.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • Effect of COVID-19 has a direct impact on the core materials, owing to the disruption in the supply chain, longer downtime, lockdown scenario, and temporary suspension of wind energy projects, which is projected to hamper the production and demand for core materials in the wind energy industry.

Top Impacting Factors
Core materials are the type of materials used in wind energy equipment & aerospace for improving the strength of the materials. They are usually low strength materials & its greater thickness offers the sandwich composite a high bending stiffness with low density. They are widely used in industries that include marine, wind energy, and automotive. Rise in growth in the aerospace industry is the crucial factor escalating the market growth, also surge in demand from the wind energy industry & rise in use of composites in the aerospace industry are the major factors propelling the growth of the core materials market. Governments’ tax incentives & stimulus packages & the increase in emergence of pet foam is anticipated to create new opportunities for the core materials market during the forecast period.
Market Trends

  • The prime driver for the growth of the core materials market happens to be the aerospace & defense industry. Increase in air traffic owing to the rise in presence of low-cost carriers across the globe mandates the requirement to increase fleet sizes of living airline operators moreover, to fulfilling need of newer carriers entering the aerospace industry. Moreover, the demand for generation of clean power from renewable sources such as wind energy is also helping the growth of the core materials market. Further, core materials also find application in aircraft flooring, unmanned aerial vehicles as well as several structural applications.
  • One of the key and crucial factors which is obstructing the growth of the core materials market is the absence of economical manufacturing processes for manufacturing core materials in huge quantities. In addition, the capital-intensive nature of the business is also likely to deter players from entering the market, thereby hampering the growth of the market.
  • Core materials are distinguished by their highest resistance to impact and compression, high rigidity rates, low weight, simple formability, and sustainability. 
  • Core composites materials supply ultra-performing composites for virtually all marine components such as hull bottoms, sides & walls, superstructures, bulkheads, and stringers to transom, floors & interiors. 
  • PVC foams are commonly used core materials in the marine industry owing to the constant density, high moisture tolerance, and excellent physical properties. 
  • Lightweight and rigid with outstanding mechanical and structural properties, the PVC core is highly consistent in cross-section and attaches well to structures made of resin and laminate constructions. 
  • Therefore, the demand for core materials in the marine industry is estimated to boost in the forecast era, due to these properties.
