Global Metal Foams Market Research By Product type (Closed Cell Metal Foams, Open-Cell Metal Foams, Stochastic Metal Foam), By Material Type (Aluminum Foams, Magnesium Foams, Nickel Foams, Copper Foams, Others), By Application (Anti-Intrusion Bars, Heat Exchangers, Sound Absorbers, Electro-Chemical Application, Medical Laser Application), By End-Users (Transportation, Construction Industry, Biomedical Industry, Consumer Goods Industry, and Others) Forecast, 2022-2028

The global metal foam market is growing at a considerable CAGR of around 5.4% during the forecast period. The global metal foam market has experienced growth in previous years, due to the vast application expanse of this material in various sectors such as automotive, aerospace, construction, and healthcare. The properties of metal foams offer such as impact resistance, lightweight, sound absorption, and high porosity, have considerably increased the metal foam market size in the given forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the global metal foam market include the primary functions of metallic foams in vehicles, in military application to combat the impact of IEDs. For instance, the metal foam-filled tubes could be used as anti-intrusion bars. Additionally, metal foam is used in the building, and construction sector due to the increasing urbanization, and population, the construction industry has experienced growth, the properties of metal foam such as high stability and low weight make it suitable for lightweight construction. The rapid technological development and increasing demand for lightweight structural materials in the healthcare industry further derive the market growth. Moreover, the high cost of metal foam as compared with alternatives available will hinder the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Metal Foams Market

The global metal foams market is hardly hit by the outbreak of COVID-19 since December 2019. Key industry application of metal foams includes automobile industry, aerospace industry, railways, construction industry, biomedical industry, consumer goods industry rely on top economies such as China, the US, and Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic in these major economies has disrupted the manufacturing and supply chain of raw materials across the globe. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may recommence an uptrend progressively from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will endure and shattered the competition. Additionally, Copper foam is a very effective, and durable filter for reusable masks and air cleaners Metal foams are durable, and their small pores and large surface areas recommend they could effectively filter out viruses. researchers reporting in ACS’ Nano Letters have transformed copper nanowires into metal foams that could be used in facemasks, and air filtration systems. The foams filter proficiently, purify easily for reuse and are recyclable.

Global Metal Foams Market Share by End-User

The transportation segment is projected to hold a significant share in the global metal foams market

The transportation segment is primarily driven due to the high demand due to the progressively used metal foams in bumpers, and anti-instruction bars in automobiles. the anti-intrusion bars are preferably used in ground vehicles and passenger cars to secure passengers from side impacts. The low weight of the metal forms is also beneficial to decrease the weight of the vehicle, which in turn, affects better fuel consumption. There is a developing interest in aluminum foams in car and transportation businesses attributed to their high strength, low weight, and toughness. The rising demand for metal foam from lightweight electrical vehicles is likely to act as a prospect for market growth in the upcoming future.

Regional Outlooks

The global metal foams market is analyzed based on the geographical regions that are contributing significantly towards the growth of the market. Based on the geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific region held a considerable share in 2020 in the global metal foams market. Some factors that are boosting the market growth in Asia-Pacific include increased demand for metal foam with growing automotive industry in emerging economies such as China, and India is projected to drive the demand for metal foam in the region. The key players of metal foams industries are in the Asia-Pacific.
