Global Tooling Board Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Tooling Board is a flat, rigid sheet of material that is used as a base for tooling dies. It is important because it provides a stable surface for the dies to rest on, which helps to ensure accurate die cutting.


Polyurethanes are elastomers, which are extensively used in the manufacturing of plastics and rubber. They have high resistance to abrasion, good insulation properties, and excellent chemical & temperature resistance. Polyurethane products include foams; coatings; adhesives; sealants; elastomeric components including but not limited to hoses & tires; automotive interior parts such as seat covers & liners and instrument panels among others.


Epoxy is a thermosetting polymer, which contains carbon, hydrogen and oxygen along with other impurities. Epoxy resins are used in tooling boards to provide hardness and strength. Tooling boards made from epoxy resin exhibit high mechanical strength and low water absorption than other types of wood such as pine or cedar.

The most commonly used epoxies are E-glass (ethylene-based) and P-glass (propylene-based).

Application Insights:

The aerospace and defense application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30% in 2017. The demand is expected to be driven by the growing use of tooling boards in various components including nose cap, fuselage door, wings, airframe structure and bulkheads on account of their lightweight properties along with superior strength. These products are used to manufacture aircraft interiors as well as exterior parts such as doors, windows and instrument panels.

Automotive applications include engine block, transmission case assembly (case hardening), body side panel set-up (trim molding) and hood/bonnet closure among others. The rising importance of aluminum has resulted in an increased utilization rate for tooling boards that contain aluminum extrusions or bars which act as a substitute for heavy metal parts during car manufacturing process known as CNC machining operations.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for consumer electronics and automobiles in countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea. In addition, rising investments in research & development activities by various governments are likely to boost the tooling industry across this region.

The aerospace sector of North America is projected to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period owing to growing passenger traffic across major airports within this region. Moreover, technological advancements coupled with high R&D spending by manufacturers are also expected favorably impact industry growth over the next eight years.

Europe accounted for more than 25% of global revenue share in 2017 on account of rapid industrialization witnessed within Germany and U.K., which has led automotive companies including BMW Group; Daimler AG; Jaguar Land Rover Limited; Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight and durable materials in automotive and aerospace industries
  • Growing popularity of electric vehicles that require advanced tooling boards for battery packs, motor controllers, and other electronic components
  • Proliferation of 3D printing technology that helps manufacturers produce customized tooling boards according to specific requirements
  • Rising demand from small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) due to the lower cost and shorter lead times offered by these companies
  • Emergence of new applications such as composites manufacturing, wind energy generation, and medical implants that require specialized tooling boards
