Metal Foam Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Metal Foam Market according to our research experts:

Automotive Segment to Dominate the Market

  • A foam metal is a cell structure comprising of a strong metal such as aluminum which contains an enormous volume part of gas-filled pores.
  • The primary functions of metallic foams in vehicles are to increase sound damping, reduce weight, increase energy absorption in case of crashes, and in military applications to combat the concussive force of IEDs.
  • Foam made from non-flammable metal remains non-flammable and can generally be recycled as the base materials as it typically retain some physical properties of their base material.
  • Owing to a huge growth in population, rising per capita income as well as economic development in countries, like China, India, and other ASEAN countries, will drive the automotive industry significantly in Asia-Pacific region.
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the application of metal foam from automotive sector is likely to dominate during the forecast period.
