Sandwich Panel Market Segmentation

Polyurethane Segment to Dominate Due to its Attractive Characteristics

Based on the Type, the Sandwich Panel market is divided into Polystyrene Panels, Polyurethane Panels, Mineral Wool Panels, Glass Wool Panels, and Others. The polyurethane segment appeared as the market's leading force and is expected to retain its dominance during the projection period. This importance is due to the attractive characteristics of polyurethane panels, such as their lightweight nature, robust resistance to corrosion, excellent density, and affordability. End customers like polyurethane panels not just for their durability but also for their low cost.

Steel Segment to Dominate Due to its Fire Resistance Properties and Affordability

By Skin Material, the Sandwich Panel Market is typically segmented into Steel, Aluminum, Continuous Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics (CFRT), Fiberglass Reinforced Panel (FRP), and Others. Steel panels are popular in construction due to their great fire resistance and inexpensive cost, making them a popular choice in non-residential projects where fire safety is a major issue. At the same time, the aluminum segment is growing rapidly due to its beneficial properties, such as lightweight construction and flexibility in meeting a wide range of project needs.

Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Increased Demand for Energy Efficiency to Support Market Growth

As issues related to energy usage and sustainable development expand, there is a rising need for building materials that can improve the efficiency of buildings. Sandwich panels, with their outstanding thermal insulation capabilities, are especially appropriate to meet this demand. These panels operate as a barrier, allowing a stable internal temperature to be maintained, avoiding the requirement for overheating or cooling. As a consequence, buildings designed use sandwich panels consume less energy, resulting in considerable savings in money over time and a lower carbon impact. Additionally, several regions have implemented building rules and laws requiring greater amounts of insulation in new buildings. Sandwich panels are an excellent alternative for meeting these specifications.

Prefabrication and Modular Construction Expansion Will Accelerate Market Expansion

Prefabrication and modular construction methods are growing in popularity in the building sector due to their capacity to simplify construction processes and deliver assignments quicker and more effectively. Sandwich panels are important in these technologies as they may be produced off-site under controlled circumstances and then brought to the building site for assembly. This method shortens building deadlines, decreases on-site labor needs, and frequently leads to cost savings. Sandwich panels are very adaptable and may be modified to fit individual project needs. They are utilized in a variety of prefabricated and modular construction applications, including panels for walls, roof panels, and even full building modules. Their modest weight also facilitates transportation and handling, adding to the efficiency of various construction processes.


Sandwich Panel's Inadequate Fire Performance Will Limit Market Growth

Few sandwich panels have weak fire resistance when compared to other construction materials, which is expected to hinder industry growth. The lightweight panels that are designed are always inadequate in terms of fire performance. They provide great thermal insulation but poor fireproofing capability. Fireproofing sandwich panels, on the other hand, add weight and expense, diminishing their use in lightweight applications. As a result, inadequate fire resistance will limit product demand throughout the projection period.

Recent Developments

  • In October 2022, Kingspan bought Invespane, a manufacturer of mineral wool sandwich panels. The strategic purchase of Invespanel by Kingspan will provide an opportunity to supplement their sandwich panel product options for various applications.
  • Industrial Engineering Company for Construction and Development (ICON) got an offer from Kingspan Insulated Panels in November 2021 requesting a partnership in the manufacture of sandwich panels.

Impact of Covid-19 on Sandwich Panel Market

Government-imposed lockdowns during the pandemic caused supply chain problems, affecting the sandwich panel business. These limits, imposed by many countries, posed tremendous problems for the logistics industry, owing principally to staff and shortages of materials, as well as other inevitable obstacles. Construction works were temporarily halted during the COVID-19 pandemic due to lockdown precautions, labor shortages, budgetary restrictions, and supply chain uncertainty. These factors, taken together, cast a shadow on the market's performance during the epidemic. Most building projects were run with drastically reduced worker forces or were entirely stopped. Raw material shortages caused significant price swings in the building industry.
