Core Materials Market Dynamics

The global Core Materials Market is anticipated to witness significant growth with the range of building constructions, renovation, and refurbishing activities in fast-growing economies such as China, India, and Southeast Asia.

The construction industry in India is in full swing, some of the projects include the development of palava industrial township worth USD 4.18 bn, the Construction of EWS, LIG and MIG houses, and the development of infrastructure work under PMAY Package C in Jabalpur worth USD 1.78 bn, Construction of EWS, LIG and MIG houses and development of infrastructure work under PMAY Package A worth USD 1.76 bn are a few projects. 

When comes to the South East region rolling out its 2016-2020 infrastructure plan, Thailand is set to benefit from the stability of the current government along with the public and private sectors. The country is likely to witness an increase in its infrastructure spending over the medium term.

Vietnam plans to increase urbanization from its current 27% to 45.2% by 2020 with increased spending on infrastructure projects through foreign and private investment. The country is taking help from public-private partnerships to maintain its manufacturing hub status in the region.

Indonesia is likely to spend heavily on infrastructure till 2025. The spending matches the government spending of nearly 7% per year, and many infrastructure-related firms in the country are said to have received capital from the government. This trend comes with the Indonesian jurisdiction protecting local suppliers, especially because it comes under the earthquake-affected zone, and where local survival is important.

Therefore the range of construction activity and scope for new construction projects in the region is set to drive the Core Materials Market. 

Type segment Analysis

Based on type, Core Materials Market is classified into Honeycomb, Balsa, and Foam. Currently, construction film is dominant in the foam segment and it accounts for approximately XX% of the market.

Foam is most frequently used as structural core material for composite laminates, delivering added strength, stiffness, and insulation, without adding weight. Generally, it is easy to handle, readily conforms to shapes, and can be bonded in layers to add thickness.

A variety of foams are used for applications that include flotation, sculpting, cavity filling, pattern making, and flow media for resin infusion.

Vinyl sheet foam is one of the most versatile core materials on the market. It is a rigid, closed-cell material that resists hydrocarbons, alkalis, dilute acids, methyl alcohol, seawater, gasoline, and diesel oil, and it is self-extinguishing.

It has been used extensively in aircraft and performance automotive structures, but it can be applied anywhere that high properties and easy handling are needed.

Based on the application, the core materials market is classified into Aerospace, Wind Energy, Marine, Transportation, and Construction. Currently, barrier application is the dominant segment and it accounts for approximately XX% of the market.

For better performance in the aerospace sector light, strong and resilient materials are demanded flight control surfaces, rotor blades, radomes, and satellite containment fairings are other common applications.

Foams excellent option for reducing the weight of all aircraft structural foams. Foams are well-suited sandwich structures for the aircraft wings, landing gear doors, radomes, Vertical and horizontal stabilizers, ailerons, and areas subject to surface damage.

Owing to the growing population, improving economies, and spending powers, industrialization has led to the growth in air travelers year on year, Moving forward this trend is anticipated to continue, directly contributing to the demand for core materials used in aerospace design.

Core Materials Market Geographical Analysis

The Asia Pacific Core Materials Market size was worth USD XX million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD XX million by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Asia Pacific region is expected to grow with a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to the strong growth in the end-user industry in this region.  

Due to the rapid urbanization in the region and this trend is projected to continue in the coming years and thereby bring unprecedented demographic, economic, and social shifts.

Urban development in the region will have an important positive impact on the construction films industry. For instance one of the fast-growing economies in the region such as India have witnessed immense demand in commercial space such as office spaces, hotels, retail, and entertainment units. Annual absorption of office space in India crossed 42 mn sq ft in 2017.

Furthermore, new construction activities and housing projects are expected to drive the demand for construction films demand in the ASEAN countries. 

Boeing Co. of the United States and other major international aircraft makers are moving to build manufacturing bases in Southeast Asia. Thailand and Malaysia are eager to attract industries from overseas, in the hope of developing their economies. This is presenting opportunities for small and midsized Japanese companies that manufacture airplane parts or provide other services to start operations in the region.

Thailand is planning to build a base for the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) of aircraft in a special economic zone. Demand for MRO services is growing due to an increase in the number of airplanes flying in the region.

Europe’s Airbus has already decided to start operations in the zone, with Boeing Co., Rolls-Royce of Britain, and other companies also considering investments there. Owing to these developments, the core materials market witnessed strong demand in the region.
