Sustainable Manufacturing Practices Contributing to the Rapid Growth of the Aluminum Foam Market

Posted by Jack Martin on October 26th, 2023

The demand for aluminum foam is increasing due to the advantages of these foams such as cost-effectiveness, durability, less weight, good thermal behavior, resistance to fire, and reduced maintenance expenditure. The aluminum foam market size is expected to reach USD 55 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecasted period. The increasing use of aluminum foam in the industrial, medical, and automotive industries is bolstering market growth globally. 

Based on type, the market for aluminum foam is segmented into open-cell aluminum foam and closed cell aluminum foam. Open-cell aluminum foam dominates the overall aluminum foam market in 2021, in terms of volume and value. The demand for open cell aluminum foam is projected to dominate the market in the forecasted period due to the high demand from automotive, construction and industrial end-use industries. In the construction industry, open cell aluminum foam is mainly used for sound absorbers. In the heat exchangers application, open cell aluminum foam is used due to its effective thermal conductivity and porous properties.
