Lightweight materials have always helped in bringing down fuel consumption and emissions and are suitable for the corrosive and challenging marine environment. Additionally, these materials reduce the pay-load of the ship and increase its high speeding potential. Additionally, lightweighting in ships can enable lighter hulls and bulkheads. However, high cost of new material solutions such as sandwiches and a stringent regulatory scenario from International Maritime Organization and US Coast Guard make commercialization difficult for sandwich manufacturers. Stakeholders strive to pass tests as laid down by these authorities to increase popularity among shipyards. In balancing the regulations, the strength of the material also should not be compromised.

The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.

The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.

Keywords: Sandwich, lightweight composites, metal foams, titanium
