Global Aerospace Foam Market Overview
Aerospace foam are flexible polyurethane, polyethylene or may be metal based products of aerospace grade with rigid foam core materials for aircraft flight exterior as well as interiors. The light weight property of foam is very much appreciated in aerospace industry. The maximum area of any aircraft is designed with foam comprised of differed material types. They are heat resistant, thermally insulated, resistant to wear, tear and abrasion, light weight and many more. Thus, they are used for cushioning and insulation in aircrafts.
Polyurethane offer advantages such as enhanced insulation, lightweight, and durability for which they have applications in headrest, carpet pads, cockpit panels, door, etc. Moreover, polyethylene is also popular for its excellent thermal & mechanical stability and lightweight features. Metal foams are no less in providing excellent insulation and lightweight properties. These features in materials of foam are the determinants for the increase in demand in commercial & military aircrafts.
To make more light weight parts, foams are being re-designed by eco-friendly materials which will result in green-foams. The green foams are responsible for environment safety and lower density products.
Market Size & Forecast
Many foam manufacturing industries are concentrating towards new product application advances in aerospace foam. Moreover, many advantageous properties of aerospace foam are its durability, rigidity, stability, thermal resistance, light weight and many more. The aerospace foam market is developing lower density foam materials which are also eco-friendly. They are sustainable to heat and pressure as they have to experience various temperature and pressure differences at high altitude and at the same time they have to be light-weight.
Currently the global aerospace foam market is observing subsequent growth owing to increasing demand for light weight, heat and pressure resistive foam materials. Advancement in aerospace sector and growing technological explorations is projected to drive aerospace foam market besides the funding and change in government policies to widen the market of Aerospace industry.
