Material = (1) concerned with worldly or physical needs rather than spiritual, moral, and intellectual interests: ‘In material terms, they are very well off, but spiritually they are deprived.’ (2) The tangible substance: ‘Coal is a hard black material.’ (3) things needed for doing or making something: ‘ I need more related materials for writing this book.’

Materialistic = a great or excessive regard for worldly concerns rather than spiritual or intellectual things or moral values: ‘Modern society is becoming increasingly materialistic.’
