Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102301 | Status : Ongoing



Aerospace foam is specially developed foam as per the aerospace industry standards. These foams are made of different materials to serve a variety of applications such as insulations, seating, refrigeration, fuel tanks, and other important aircraft components in the aerospace industry. Aerospace foams are lightweight with superior strength and properties which make it suitable for use in aircraft. Properties such as low flame, low heat release & smoke make it the most desirable material for the aerospace industry.

Light-weight aircraft is in need of an hour for the aerospace industry to increase fuel efficiency, to carry more load and sustainably in the developing markets. Fuel efficiency is the most important factor for any aircraft for profitable operations. Aerospace foams have major applications in the newly launched and upcoming aircraft to increase the light-weights and fuel efficiency to improve overall performance of the aircraft.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing demand for light-weight materials in aviation to propel the market growth over the forecast period.

Key Market Restraint -

Fluctuating raw material prices to restrain the growth in aerospace foam market.

Aerospace-grade foam properties vary greatly as compared to the conventional foams used in different applications. aerospace foams are relatively costlier and require extra processing to match the criteria for aerospace standards. For example, aerospace foams are required for aerospace application should be flame retardant, should produce low smoke & heat release and should meet various standards set for aerospace applications by the various aerospace standards.
