this is part of non essential.

this part is no need.

Could you please tell which one is correct?

Neither one is correct

You can say:

This part is nonessential.
This part is of no need.

"Of no need" sounds strange and a bit archaic. However, you could say "There is no need for this part."

The meaning between the two is different. "This part is non-essential" means that it's OK to not have the part, although it'd be preferred to have it. "There is no need for this part" or "This part is not needed" more likely means that you shouldn't use the part.
