    Impact of COVID-19 on Marine Structural Core Materials Market

    Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.

    Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.

    Market Highlights

    The core materials refer to the central component of sandwich construction. The well-known core materials used in sandwich construction are honeycomb, foam, and balsa. This core material absorbs the shear forces generated by out of planeloads, distributing between the skins and spreading them over a larger area, while maintaining the skins at a fixed distance. The core’s function is to support the skins so that they do not deform inwardly or outwardly to keep them in a relative position to each other. The core materials can be made of a variety of materials such as wood, aluminum, and a variety of foams.

    The market recorded a relatively low decline in the demand for composite materials in the marine industry as compared with the one registered during The Great Recession. The marine structural core materials market witnessed a plunge of -6.9% in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. An expected recovery in the economy, growing USA’s powerboat sales, increased preference for outdoor recreational activity amid the pandemic, and excellent performance of composites are likely to help the stakeholders to log the quick market recovery.  Stratview Research estimates the global marine structural core materials market may record an impressive CAGR of 6.6% over the next five years to reach US$ 180 Million in 2026.  Boating is a preferred choice for recreation in the New Normal, there has been a surge in the number of first-time buyers amid the pandemic. Based on recent NMMA estimates, about 4,15,000 first-time boat buyers entered the market in the USA in 2020.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the boat type, the marine structural core materials market is segmented as outboard boats, sterndrive boats, PWC, and others. The outboard boat is expected to remain the biggest demand generator for core materials during the forecast period. There has been a growing penetration of fiberglass boats in the outboard category. Also, there has been a paradigm shift from sterndrive to outboard boats.

    Based on the core material type, the market is segmented as PVC, SAN, PET, and others. PVC is expected to remain the most dominant material type in the market during the forecast period. Key driving factors of PVC foam core are moisture resistance and cost-effectiveness with excellent durability. PET held the smallest share of the market in 2020; however, it is anticipated to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period. SAN holds a fair share but there has been a gradual shift from SAN to PVC and PET cores.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for marine structural core materials during the forecast period. The region is the largest producer of recreational boats. In 2020, there were total sales of nearly 320 thousand boats (Outboard, Sterndrive, Inboard, PWC, Jetboats, etc.) in the USA. Asia-Pacific is likely to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period with strong potential from China and Japan.
