“The aerospace foams market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2019 to 2024, in terms of value.”
The aerospace foams market is projected to grow from USD 4.4 billion in 2019 to USD 6.5 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2019 to 2024. The continuous expansion in the overall aviation industry worldwide, as well as the growing demand for the lightweight and fuel-efficient aircraft around the world, are driving the global aerospace foams market. Factors such as stringent regulations in the usage of PU foams as well as new norms for fire safety improvements in aircraft cabins including materials flammability upgrade are restraining the growth of the aerospace foams market.
“The commercial aircraft segment is projected to lead the aerospace foams market in terms of both value and volume during the forecast period.”
Based on end-use industry, the commercial aircraft segment led the aerospace foams market in 2018 in terms of both value and volume. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing number of air passengers and high demand for low-cost operators in the regions such as Asia Pacific, Middle East, and South America is driving the growth of the commercial aircraft segment. Furthermore, the surge in the growing demand for LCC around the regions Southeast Asia, India, and Australia is aiding in the growth of the overall commercial aircraft segment and thus, propelling the demand for aerospace foam as well.
“The PU foams material segment is projected to lead the aerospace foams market in terms of both value and volume from 2019 to 2024.”
Based on material, PU foams accounted for the largest share of the aerospace foams market in 2018. The PU foams segment is projected to lead the market in terms of both value and volume during the forecast period. PU foams are available in a variety of forms ranging from low to high density with varying rigidity. PU foams are compatible with a multitude of aerospace applications such as seating, airframes, interiors, and packaging in the aerospace industry. The growth in this market is attributed mainly to the extensive usage of PU foams for aerospace seating and cushioning application due to their unique properties of durability, lightweight, and recyclability, among others.
“North America is projected to lead the aerospace foams market during the forecast period, in terms of both value and volume.”
The North America region is projected to lead the aerospace foams market from 2019 to 2024, in terms of both value and volume.
