Increasing demand for lightweight and high strength materials expected to drive the core materials market for composites

The global core materials market size for composites is projected to reach USD 1.72 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.60% between 2016 and 2021. Growing demand from wind energy sector, increasing use of composites in the aerospace industry, and recovery of marine sector in the U.S. are the major drivers fuelling the growth of global core materials market for composites.

Wind energy is the fastest-growing industry of the core materials market for composites

Wind energy is a key solution to energy security, air pollution, and price stability. This is driving the demand of core materials in this industry. As per the GWEC, by the end of 2015, there were commercial wind power installations in more than 90 countries, with a total installed capacity of 432 GW. The rapid growth in the wind energy sector in China, India, and other countries are driving the demand of foam core materials market for composites at a significant pace.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for core materials for composites

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for core materials for composites. The rising demand for high performance materials from wind energy and aerospace industry and increasing expansion and other development strategies in the region are few factors leading to the growth of the core materials market for composites in this region.

China dominated the core material’s market in Asia-Pacific, accounting for more than half of the demand of core materials in the region. The increasing installations of wind energy turbines in 2015 and increasing number of high-speed rail projects is driving the demand for core materials in the country.
