About Commercial Aircraft Honeycomb Core

A honeycomb structure is made from a core material that resembles a beehive’s honeycomb. It is sandwiched or laminated between thin outer skin sheets. The honeycomb design provides an excellent combination of efficiency and strength, while drastically reducing the component weight. The applications of honeycomb material include use in flooring, enclosures, walls, and decorative shapes. A variety of metals and synthetics are manufactured in honeycomb shapes. Most common materials used include aluminum, aramid fibers, phenolic-impregnated Kraft paper, and polypropylene. Honeycombs can be filled with polyurethane foam. They can also be left without a filler material. Proper selection of filler depends on the required application. Some other possibilities for honeycomb materials are steel, plywood, and stainless steel.

The analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft honeycomb core market to grow at a CAGR of 7.78% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Commercial Aircraft Honeycomb Core Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft honeycomb core market: DuPont, EURO-COMPOSITES, Hexcel, Plascore, and Rockwell Collins

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Argosy International, The Gill, Indy Honeycomb, TRB Lightweight Structures, and Tubus Bauer.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Advancement in material technology. Metallic and composite materials used in the aviation industry continue to improve and develop, to offer better performance in terms of lighter weight, better strength, and improved heat and corrosion resistance. Advancements in machining and cutting technologies give manufacturers access to materials, which were previously deemed impractical or difficult to machine. It results in acceleration of evolution of new materials. The adoption of new materials is increasing at a rapid pace, and it requires expertise to maintain a proper balance between component design and material selection.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing demand for lightweight materials in modern aircraft to improve fuel economy. For over 50 years, Aluminum dominated the aerospace materials market as it was considered lightweight and inexpensive. Almost 70% of an aircraft, from the engine components to the fuselage, was made using aluminum. Other materials and alloys were used in smaller proportions.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High production cost. Providing a structure that is safe and durable is a matter of primary importance because the failure of structural components leads to catastrophic results. The modern and advanced technologies have enabled development of large and efficient commercial aircraft, which have eventually transformed air transportation. These aircraft have several critical structures, including engine, fuselage, empennage, and wings. The aircraft structure must be strong, corrosion-resistant, and lightweight, as they need to operate under high stress and varying temperature conditions. Despite these challenges, the structures must remain operational for the entire lifetime of the aircraft. One pound of added weight requires increased wing area to generate the additional lift; the requirement of additional thrust, to overcome the increased drag, results in reduced fuel efficiency.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
