Aerospace Foam Market was valued at $4,584 million in 2016, and is expected to garner $7,482 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2017 – 2023. On the basis of type segment, polyurethane foam occupied more than two-fifths share in 2016.
Aerospace foams are materials used for cushioning and insulation in aircrafts owing to their excellent properties, such as durability, tensile strength, and rigidness. Aerospace foams, such as polyurethane, polyethylene, ceramic, and metal foam, provide superior insulation in varied temperature ranges and reduce air leakage.
Enhanced insulation, lightweight, and durability have projected the demand for polyurethane foams with applications in headrest, carpet pads, cockpit panels, door, and others. Moreover, excellent thermal & mechanical stability and lightweight features have increased the demand for polyethylene in aerospace applications. Metal foams have excellent insulation and lightweight properties, owing to the increase in demand is expected to enhance commercial & military aircraft. The general aviation segment is the major market driver for aerospace foam, owing to increase in demand for aircraft deliverability and increase in growth of passenger carriers. Furthermore, increase in governmental investments is expected to fuel the demand for aerospace foam in military applications. Volatility in raw materials prices are expected to hinder the market growth but, developments in biodegradable aerospace foams, such as green polyurethane foam are expected to create growth opportunities in the market.
