Non-Honeycomb Sandwich Panel Core Materials Market Overview:
Non-Honeycomb Sandwich Panel Core Materials Market was valued at $610 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $894 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 5.6% from 2017 to 2023. A sandwich composite panel is fabricated with a combination of fiber sandwich panel skins and a low-density core, which increases the thickness of the structure, while reducing the overall weight. The resulting sandwich material therefore exhibits a high specific stiffness and strength.
The global non-honeycomb sandwich panel core materials market is majorly driven by rapid & economic construction techniques and manufacture of lightweight parts. In addition, sandwich panels with low-density foam cores are ideal for use in large construction projects to be accomplished in a short timeframe, thus allowing monetary savings. Moreover, increase in demand for lightweight materials from aerospace industry has gained prominence in the past few decades. Sandwich materials in aerospace industry are used in applications such as aircraft cabin floor, walls, ceilings, overhead bins, and others. Design freedom provided by sandwich panels has further contributed to the growth of this market.
However, the time consuming and complex manufacturing process is expected to hamper the market growth. Technological advancements in the composite molding processes, specifically related to sandwich panels, are anticipated to provide numerous growth opportunities for the market players.
