New York (US), June 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aerospace Foam Market Overview

Market Research Future (MRFR) states that the "Aerospace Foam Market Research Report Information By Material, End Use, Application & Region - Market Forecast 2032" the Aerospace Foam Market is poised to escalate from USD 5.5 billion in 2022 to USD 9.7 billion by 2032, growing at a 6.50% CAGR during the assessment period (2023-2032). The aerospace foam market is likely to garner significant traction. The continuous expansion of the aerospace industry would create vast market demand.

The aerospace industry harbors the goal of improving fuel efficiency. When labor and operating costs continue to rise, reducing fuel costs can increase profitability and stable competitiveness for passenger airlines. To meet the challenges of rising operating costs and ever-increasing demands for cost savings, enhanced performance, and sustainability, aircraft manufacturers adopt lightweight materials.

Foaming protects materials against abrasion, temperature, moisture, impact, and corrosion. Using foam reduces overall weight, enhancing fuel economy, insulation, sound absorption, and corrosion resistance. The aerospace foam industry is continuously seeking more eco-friendly business practices to minimize their environmental impact in terms of sustainability and cost-effectiveness. The factors listed above allow aircraft manufacturers to reduce fuel consumption.
