Challenges – Honeycomb Core Materials Market
Structural limitations of honeycomb core materials
Honeycomb core shapes are difficult to model and also difficult to manufacture which are computationally expensive. Therefore, core material may be replaced by a simple equivalent volume having elastic orthotropic properties, which acts as a restrain in the honeycomb core market growth. In addition, the high cost of nomex honeycomb core is also limiting market growth.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Honeycomb Core Materials Market. Major players in the Honeycomb Core Materials market are Honicel, Euro-Composites, Argosy International, Grigeo, Plascore, Tubus Baer GmbH, Corinth, Axxion, Toray TCAC Holding B.V. and Hexcel Corporation., among others.
The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share of honeycomb core materials market, owning to growing demand for packaging from the expanding e-commerce business platform, and rising production in the food and beverage industry.
The use of 3D printing for the production of honeycomb panels is expected to create various opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
However, the absorption of water and moisture by honeycombs and the structural limitations of honeycomb core materials act as a constraint to the market.
Recycled polyethylene terephthalate honeycomb is gaining popularity as it provides superior temperature tolerance and mechanical properties compared to traditional thermoplastic core materials.
However, operations in various industries such as automotive, and aerospace is being significantly affected due to the COVID-19 epidemic, as most of countries have issued “stay at home guidance” i.e., lockdown. And it is expected that the outbreak of COVID-19 will be seen in the whole year of 2020, and a few months in 2021. Therefore, this factor is expected to limit honeycomb core material market growth for the next two years.
