The global aerospace foam market to grow at a CAGR of 7.65% during the period 2016-2020.
Aerospace foams are manufactured using various materials such as polyurethane (PU) foams, polyethylene (PE) foams, metal foams, melamine foams, and other types of foams, including polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), polyphenylsulfone (PPSU), silicones, polyetherimide (PEI), and polymethacrylimide (PMI). These foams are used in various applications such as seating, gaskets, seals, carpet pads, rotor blades, headrest, doors, windshields, cockpit instrument panel, and wingtip lens.
The aerospace foam market is segmented in different end-use industries, which include commercial aircraft, general aviation, and military aircraft. All these foams maintain performance through high temperature, reducing air leakage, providing sound barriers, and superior temperature insulation performance.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global aerospace foam market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated through sales of aerospace foam products for applications such as general aviation, commercial aircraft, and military aircraft. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be versatility and unique properties of PU and melamine foams. The PU foams segment (approximately 29% in 2015 by value) is the largest segment of the global aerospace foam market, and are widely used in various aircraft applications including seating, door panels, windshields, seals, and gaskets The continuous growth of the PU foam market is due to its versatility and unique properties such as good abrasion, resistance, durability and toughness as compared with other plastics which are used in building aircraft. The strong growth of the commercial and military aircraft segments is increasing the demand for PU foams globally.
