Sandwich Panels Market Dynamics and Trends

The surging demand for sandwich panels in the food and beverage industry is expected to boost the market for sandwich panels in the forecast period. However, high production costs and fluctuation in raw material prices could be major market restraints.

The surging demand for sandwich panels in the food and beverage industry

The mineral wool material plays a vital role in the manufacturing of sandwich panels as the demand for energy-saving insulation materials is increasing due to climate changes and rising global pollution. For instance, in the UK, around 20 million people are affected by flooding yearly, costing around US$ 83 billion to UK’s GDP. Further annually cost of damaging urban areas has reached more than US$ 1.29 billion

Further increasing investment in developing zero-emission mineral wool materials to combat climate change around the globe has propelled the demand for the sandwich panel market. According to UN Environmental Program Report, several countries and the private sector are collaborating to build a zero-carbon emission construction & buildings sector to mobilize US$ 1 trillion in “Paris-compliant” building investments in developing countries by 2030. This will boost the demand for energy-efficient mineral wool materials for the building & construction sector around the globe

The rising global production of industrial wool materials around the globe has created a massive demand for this market. Among the total, the construction sector usage contributed around US$ 25.3 billion, consisting of mineral wools, construction gravel, crushed stone, and sand. It created a massive demand for the sandwich panel market during the forecast period.

High  production cost and fluctuation in raw material price

The production of sandwich panels requires a huge investment for pieces of machinery, equipment, and raw materials. For instance, the average cost for the production of sandwich panels ranges from US$ 1000 to US$ 5000 million per production capacity. In addition, if a panel is filled with a core filling material, such as polyurethane, then the price of the material further increases.

Labor costs are generally evaluated based on workload or needed person-hours. They could be separated into the costs needed to produce steel sandwich panels and grillage. 

While keeping the increase in raw material cost, the price of sandwich panels automatically rises. The production of complex, large foam cores involves a time-consuming milling process, which can cause up to 90% of scrap. As a result, the costs of a pre-cut, 3D-milled foam core can rise extremely. The material selection here is largely driven by cost. Many sandwich panel material combinations common in other industries, such as aerospace, are far less feasible, despite their superior mechanical properties.

Production costs are small compared to material costs, which is true for some types of sandwich panel construction. They could be separated into the costs needed to produce steel sandwich panels and grillage. A sandwich panel is made by laser welding in an automated production facility and the costs are high. Typically polymer foams (often polyurethane, polystyrene, PVC, or PMI) or lightweight woods (usually balsa or cedar) have been used as core materials in low-cost applications rather than more expensive-to-manufacture honeycomb cores. Production costs of honeycomb cores are high because they are conventionally produced in batches rather than in continuous manufacturing processes. Therefore, such sandwich panels are limited by high production costs.

COVID-19 Impact on Sandwich Panels Market

The economy has been severely affected, as well as domestic and international trade, households, enterprises, financial institutions, industrial organizations, and infrastructure companies, by COVID-19 outbreaks. Economic problems brought on by the virus have affected many extra businesses globally. Similar to how the COVID-19 pandemic has endangered engineering and building projects globally, many projects have been shelved.

As a result, virtually all nations have gone through a building industry financial recession, which has exacerbated unemployment. The building sector is apprehensive, nervous, and anxious about this situation. Since construction projects are the only source of sandwich panel demand, the COVID-19 problem had a catastrophic impact on the worldwide sandwich panel business, decreasing demand, and sales in that particular sector. The market in question is anticipated to rebound with the building business as the pandemic's hold on the world economy begins to break.

Sandwich Panels Market Segmentation Analysis 

The global sandwich panels market is classified based on type, application, end-user, and region.

Low construction time and suitable government policies towards installations of sandwich panels over the steel/metal frames or traditional concrete structure

The commercial applications of sandwich panels include commercial showrooms, aircraft hangers, enclosed sports facilities, restaurants, schools, airport terminals, museums, theatres, shopping malls, and many others. The current mandate by commercial units today is to adopt sustainable technologies and save energy costs. Thus, sandwich panels provide respective features, boost energy efficiency and add customer value to business owners. Increasing interests among major construction companies towards adopting sustainable insulated panels associated with growing investments by the respective end-user companies are primary factors driving the commercial segment in the global sandwich panel market during the forecast period.

Minimal energy consumption and high temperature and fire resistance over traditional concrete-based structures also boost the demand for global sand panels during the forecast period. Additionally, Low-construction time and suitable government policies toward installing sandwich panels over steel/metal frames or traditional concrete structures are expected to boost the sandwich panels market globally during the forecast period. Currently, Major government funded-sport and recreation centers under construction are utilizing sandwich panel technology for various exterior structures to decrease energy expenses and improve air-conditioning facilities across the unit. Adopting prefabricated sandwich panels will decrease construction and labor costs and improve customer reach time.
