“Thermoplastic Honeycomb Market”
Global Thermoplastic Honeycomb Market by Type (Polypropylene Honeycomb and Polycarbonate Honeycomb), by End Use Industries (Aerospace, Automotive, Construction, Sports, Wind Energy and Others), and by Region-Forecast till 2023

Honeycomb Structures are synthesized by integration of small hexagonal hollow cells. These structures provide a material of great strength and low density. The main advantage of hexagonal structure is that it reduces the wastage of material which in turn lowers the cost of production. Depending upon the type thermoplastic material, its honeycomb structure is classified into Polycarbonate Honeycomb and Polypropylene Honeycomb. Thermoplastic Honeycomb Structure exhibits some additional properties such as moisture resistance, easy application and customization of sheets into desired shapes. The clarity and transparency of Thermoplastic Honeycomb is useful in lamps and lighting applications. Applications of thermoplastic honeycomb can be found in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, construction, and sports. Apart from this, Thermoplastic Honeycomb are also used in electronic devices due to its insulating property. The LED lighting technology used for decorative and entertainment purpose also makes use of Thermoplastic Honeycomb.

Thermoplastic Honeycomb is environment friendly owing to its 100 % recyclability. The aerospace industry is witnessing constantly growing demand of light weight material for manufacturing. The global market for aerospace composites and core materials is growing at the highest CAGR among all its end use industries, which is expected to propel growth of the Global Thermoplastic Honeycomb Market. Thermoplastic Honeycomb is anticipated to witness growth in demand during the forecast period owing to the sluggish demand of metal honeycomb structure. In addition to this the cost intensive nature of metal honeycomb make Thermoplastic Honeycomb more competitive in numerous applications. The global sports industry is set to grow at higher CAGR of ~7% on account of forthcoming Olympic Games in 2020. Moreover, the constant growth of construction segment around the world is projected to help push the growth of the Global Thermoplastic Honeycomb Market. However, the complex interaction between various damage mechanisms such as shock, abrasion, and low velocity impacts that causes deformation in the structure due to non-elastic behavior of some constituent material. This is expected to negatively impact the growth trajectory of Thermoplastic Honeycomb Market. Nevertheless, endearing researches in a bid to find new advanced elastic constituent materials to overcome this concern may help the market to retain momentum.
