Aramid honeycomb core materials are materials that are used in interior and exterior applications of automobiles, aircraft, ships, and rails. They can range from low strength to high strength materials depending upon the material purpose such that of aluminum, Nomex, thermoplastic, paper, and others.
Honeycomb core materials are used in non-composites and composites usages such as in packaging, transportation, construction, aerospace, and defense. The demands for these materials are rising at a high rate because of their ability to increase the fuel efficiency of vehicles along with their lightweight feature.
Global Honeycomb Core Material Market was valued at USD 2.05 Billion in 2018. The market size in the transportation industry was USD XXX million in 2020 and is projected to grow at USD XXX million by 2030 at a CAGR of XX%. In 2018, the sales of Boeing rose by 8%, to USD 101 billion, for the first time in its 102-year history, due to increases in commercial and military jet deliveries.
The growth in the market is due to the high demand for high-performance material due to its low weight, good tensile strength, high strength-to-weight ratio, and electrical conductivity.
