Sandwich panels are commonly used in the construction industry as wall panels due to their quick and easy construction, light weight, and thermal and insulation characteristics. Sandwich composite panels using textile reinforcement are in the developing stage and further work is required to be carried out in this field. Thin sandwich panels can be manufactured using textile reinforcement, which is of lighter weight and gives better structural performance. This paper first reviews the different core materials that can be used in manufacturing of sandwich panels with this manufacturing technique adopted. Next, it critically reviews the work done thus far regarding textile-reinforced sandwich panels, and their performance evaluated by researchers is presented with a statistical study performed. The practical applications are also discussed with the future scope. In general, this paper presents a clear view on textile-reinforced sandwich panels with their advantages.
