Global structural core materials market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 9%, in value terms, during 2018-2023. Increasing demand from the wind energy industry, growing usage of composites in aerospace industry, development in marine sector, growing requirement by wood and metal industry, demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles in the transportation sector are some factors, that will propel the demand for structural core materials over the next five years. North America is anticipated to remain a strong contributor in the structural core materials market in the forecast period, owing to growing demand for honeycomb core materials. APAC is expected to register faster CAGR than any other region, backed by rising demand from wind blade and aircraft manufacturers.

Some of the major players operating in the global structural core materials are

3A Composites, Airex AG, Composites One, DIAB Group, Euro-Composites, Gurit, Hexcel Corporation, Matrix Composite Materials Company Ltd., and Saertex GmbH & Co. KG etc.

TechSci Research performed primary as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study. Initially, TechSci Research sourced a list of structural core materials manufacturers globally. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also enquired about their competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include manufacturers, distributors and dealers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analysed skin type, type, end-use industry & regional presence of all major structural core materials manufacturers across the globe.

TechSci Research calculated the market size for the global structural core materials using a bottom-up approach, where manufacturers’ value data for type of (foam, honeycomb & balsa), structural core materials was recorded as well as forecast for the future years was made. TechSci Research sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives, and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company annual reports, white papers, investor presentations and financial reports were also used by the TechSci Research.


Key Target Audience:

  • Global structural core materials manufacturers
  • Research organizations and consulting companies
  • Organizations, associations and alliances related to structural core materials
  • Government bodies such as regulating authorities and policy makers.
  • Industry associations
