Structural core materials are incorporated into composite materials, which are widely used in the construction, automotive, civil infrastructure, aircraft, military, and corrosion-resistant equipment industries. A composite material is created by combining two or more materials with distinct properties. Composites are classified into three types: particle-reinforced composites, fiber-reinforced composites, and structural composites. Laminates and sandwich panels are the two types of structural composites. A sandwich panel is a layered composite with faces and a core.

The growing urbanisation, modernisation, and expansion of the building and construction sectors have increased demand for structural core materials. One of the major factors driving the growth of the structural core materials market is the global increase in demand for sustainable energy. Honeycomb core materials are widely used in the automotive and aerospace industries because of their advantageous properties such as heat stability, light weight, and high rigidity. This will result in future market value growth for structural core materials. There will undoubtedly be a greater demand for structural core materials as a result of the expansion and development of the various end-user verticals.
The optimal structural core materials have properties including stiffness, light weight, heat transmission or insulation, strength, and vibration or noise dampening. The type of structural core materials used is determined by the relevant nature. It is then reinforced with the structural composite. Automobile airbags, protective gear such as bulletproof vests, electronic circuit boards, communication antennae, rocket parts, aeroplanes, and missiles all use structural core materials. Many industries now prefer structural core materials over solid laminates due to their increased popularity. The market for structural core materials is expected to grow in the coming years as the aerospace industry's use of composite materials increases and end-users' acceptance of PET foams grows.
High investment and operating costs associated with structural core materials, combined with fluctuations in raw material prices, will pose a significant challenge to market growth.
The high investment and operating costs associated with structural core materials, as well as fluctuations in raw material prices, would, however, be a significant barrier to market growth. The government's strict carbon-emissions regulations will also stymie market growth. Furthermore, the renewal of the production tax credit (PTC) is delayed and uncertain, limiting market expansion.
Structural Core Materials: Market Trends
Qualities preferred in an ideal structural core material include lightness in weight, stiffness, thermal insulation/transfer, dampening of noise or vibration, and strength. The nature of the application determines the type of structural core material. After that, it is incorporated into the structural composite.
In the automobile industry, structural core materials are used to manufacture air bags. They are also used in safety equipment such as bulletproof jackets. Structured core materials are also used in communication antennas and electronic circuit boards. Structured core materials are also found in missile, rocket, and aircraft components.
Various industries have become aware of benefits of structural core materials over solid laminates. Demand for structural core materials is expected to increase at a steady pace in the near future.
