Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

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. It has immense range of applications such as flight deck pads, passenger cabin walls and ceilings, overhead stow bins, service-class dividers, galleys and lavatories and others.

World Bank has recorded 3.9 billion passengers travelling by air in 2017 and every day around 1,20,000 flights transport over 12 million passengers and around USD 20 billion worth of goods owing to the 40% of international tourists who now travel by air is indirectly driving the growth of aerospace foam market which is expected to record a CAGR of around 8% over the forecast period. The aerospace foam market is expected to reach a valuation of USD 8.2 billion at the end of the forecast period.

On the basis of regional platform, global aerospace foam market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region.

U.S. stood at first position in global aerospace foam market for its continuous development and technological advancements in aircraft industry which in turn will raise the demand for foam materials in the next few years. Some of the European countries such as UK, Russia, and Germany anticipated to have high consumption rate of aerospace foam materials within the forecast period. In Asia Pacific region, China is the key country for this product followed by Japan and South Korea. Asia Pacific being engaged in continuous industrialization and immense government involvement has helped in growing the regional market at a steady rate.
