Plastic Foams Market : Rising Popularity of Ceramic Foams

Ceramic foams are inorganic and non-metallic materials made of oxide and non-oxide ceramic materials. Usually, these are formed by immersing open-cell polymer foams in ceramic slurries and subsequent firing in kilns. These foams are porous materials and can be of open, closed, or partially opened porosity. Numerous ceramic materials, such as silica oxide, silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, graphite-based ceramic foams, magnesium oxide, and other alloys, can be used to manufacture ceramic foams based on the properties required for specific applications. One of the main applications of the ceramic foams is its use as thermal and sound insulating material due to its low thermal conductivity. Thus, the rising popularity of ceramic foams is expected to drive the growth of the market.

“Factors such as the rising popularity of green building, and the growing focus on development of sustainable products will have a positive impact on the growth of the plastic foams market value during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
