Global Metal Foam Market, by Material (Aluminum, Nickel, Magnesium, Copper and Others), by Application (Heat Exchangers, Energy Absorbers, Side Impact Bars), by End-Use Industry (Automotive, Building & Construction, Industrial and Others), by Region (North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Rest of the World) – Market Size & Forecasting (2016-2028)

The Metal Foam Market is projected to register high demand during the forecast period with increasing demand from major end-use industries such as automotive, building & construction, industrial, and others during the forecast period. 

Metal foam is a lightweight structure consisting of metal with gas-filled pores. The pores can be closed-end ended or open-ended depending upon the application. The level of porosity is one of the key factors defining these materials with nearly 80% porosity making them suitable for lightweight applications. Aluminum, nickel, magnesium, and copper are major metals used in manufacturing metal foam. Metal foams have been increasingly used to reduce overall weight or as an energy absorber. This helps in improving the overall efficiency of the end-use products.

Segment Analysis:

Automotive, building & construction, industrial, and others are some of the key end-users for metal foam for different applications. Major applications for metal foam include heat exchangers, energy absorbers, side-impact bars, and others.

Some of the key Impact Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight materials
  • Complex construction and architectural designs
