Title: North America Commercial Aircraft Honeycomb Core Industry Forecast - Ken Research

Evolution in Fuel-Efficient and Light Weight
Aircrafts to Boost Honeycomb Core Industry Ken
Aerospace industry is the most advanced industry
and possesses reliable materials that are
necessary to ensure optimal safety, longevity,
and strength in any aerospace applications.
Almost all the aerospace materials should be
lightweight to allow for optimal aerodynamics,
should possess great strength to ensure the
safety of pilots and passengers, to withstand the
physical forces of flying, and heat resistant to
ensure structural changes which are kept to a
minimum during the sudden and extreme temperature
fluctuations that occur at high-speed and
high-altitude flight. Honeycomb is the most
reliable material used in aerospace applications,
particularly, aluminium honeycomb, which meets
the desired aircraft requirements. Honeycomb
materials resemble the structure of beehives
which are an excellent solution for various
aerospace applications. Production of honeycomb
requires multiple steps such as expansion,
corrugation, and moulding. Very less metal is
needed to produce honeycomb and is an expensive
process. Honeycomb is sandwiched between two thin
panels of material and effectively combines the
light-weight and high-strength qualities which
are essential for an aerospace industry. The
sandwiched structure is a smooth and flat surface
of the panels that allows for easy installation.
With the proper honeycomb design, the structures
are designed and manufactured with any number of
cell shapes, sizes, and configurations for added
flexibility and high strength. Aluminium
honeycomb has great stiffness which is among the
highest of any composite core material available.
Its resistance to compression is high, resistance
to heat, flexible to temperature fluctuation,
recyclable, non-moisture absorbent, resistant to
mould or fungal growth and shear, which are key
qualities needed in aerospace applications. More
than 90 of all aluminium material processed
annually is obtained from recycled products,
making it a very environmentally friendly
option. According to the study North America
Commercial Aircraft Honeycomb Core Industry
Situation and Prospects Research Report,
aluminum honeycomb core is used in various
commercial aerospace applications such as
critical substructures in rockets, aircraft, jet
engines, and propellers. It is used in
non-aerospace structures, such as wind turbine
blades. Also, aluminium honeycomb is used in
sensitive applications such as aircraft heating,
ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The
honeycomb core structure is very and does not
buckle easily when bent due to it is lightweight
property. Airplanes such as Boeing 787 Dreamliner
use honeycomb core structure in its wings, tail
fins, and parts of the fuselage. There is an
increasing demand for lighter aircraft such as
the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 which drive the
growth in commercial aircraft honeycomb core
market. There are multiple numbers of vendors in
aircraft honeycomb core materials and are highly
competitive. The leading vendors in commercial
aircraft honeycomb core industry are DuPont,
EURO-COMPOSITES, Hexcel, Plascore, Rockwell
Collins, Argosy International, Indy Honeycomb,
TRB Lightweight Structures and Tubus Bauer.
It was observed that there is an increasing
demand to replace older and fuel-inefficient
aircraft with more economical single-aisle models
in North America. Advanced technology coupled
with honeycomb core materials has enhanced and
retrofitted aircrafts with improved comfort and
safety for the passengers. These new trends have
enabled airline operators to improve their
revenues. Modern commercial aircraft
manufacturers demand for aluminium honeycomb core
because it is lightweight and also improves fuel
economy. This encouraged the aerospace structure
and component manufacturers to focus on using
materials that will reduce overall weight of the
aircraft and improve fuel efficiency, thus
demanding for honeycomb core materials. North
American commercial aircraft honeycomb core
market majorly consists of two materials such as
Nomex and aluminium. Nomex honeycomb core
materials account for a major share in the North
American market. It is made with aramid fiber
paper and are sometimes fused together with
Kevlar which improves its weight, strength,
fatigue, and stiffness. Nomex honeycomb core
materials are used for aircraft interiors and
provide high-performance in aerospace interior
components category due to low density, high
mechanical properties, and long-term stability.
Nomex is expected to witness a larger consumption
due to its lightweight and very good mechanical
properties needed in various aerospace
Aerospace is the largest consumer in North
American commercial aircraft honeycomb core
industry. Emerging trends that are impact the
dynamics of the honeycomb core material industry
are addition of lightweight rubber membranes in
honeycomb cores to reduce noise in aircraft and
cost-efficient production of honeycomb core with
homogenous skin bonding. The future of North
American commercial aircraft honeycomb core
market is attractive with opportunities in the
aerospace, defense, and marine, and other
industrial applications. The honeycomb core
composites provide excellent mechanical
performance with robust growth in the end use
industries. The rising need for fuel-efficiency
and the need to reduce overall weight of an
aircraft will drive the growth in honeycomb core
industry in North America over the next few years.
