Report ID: 137906 3300 Chemical & Material 377 235 Pages 5 (48)

Market Overview:

The global metal foam market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for lightweight and strong materials across different industries such as automotive, construction, aerospace, defense, medical and others. Metal foam is made up of small metal spheres that are connected with each other by thin metallic sheets. These foams have a very low density as compared to traditional metals which makes them lightweight and strong. They are also corrosion resistant and have high thermal conductivity properties.

Global Metal Foam Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Metal foam is a cellular material that consists of a solid metal matrix with small, discrete pockets of air or other gas dispersed throughout. It is made by foaming molten metal, and the resulting material has a much higher surface area than traditional metals. This increased surface area gives metal foam many unique properties, such as high strength-to-weight ratios and thermal insulation values. Metal foam can be used in many applications where these properties are beneficial, such as in construction materials, automotive parts, and aerospace components.


Aluminum is a metal and has the properties of metals. It can be used as an alloy with other metals or used alone. The properties of aluminum make it suitable for use in various industries such as automotive, construction, consumer goods, electronics & semiconductors and transportation.


Nickel is a chemical element that has the symbol Ni and the atomic number 28. It is a hard, silvery-white metal that looks like an alloy but is different from any alloy we have ever seen. Nickel has a high melting point and it's solid form can be found in most of the jewelry you wear every day. The metal does not exist in its pure form because it was discovered much later than other metals such as tin, copper or zinc.

Application Insights:

The global metal foam market is segmented on the basis of application into defense, automotive, construction, aerospace and other applications. In 2017, the defense segment dominated the overall industry with a share of over 40% in terms of revenue. The growth can be attributed to increasing military spending by countries such as China and Russia along with U.S., which are major producers of aluminum and nickel foams respectively.

The automotive sector is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand for lightweight materials in vehicles that provide enhanced safety at reduced costs compared to conventional materials such as steel and aluminum alloys. Metal-based composites have been used extensively in automobiles due to their superior strength-to-weight ratio which enables reduction in vehicle weight while improving crash energy absorption during accidents or trauma without any damage caused to passengers or crew members inside an automobile.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global metal foam market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the next eight years. The region accounted for a share of more than 60% in terms of volume owing to high product demand from various end-use industries, such as automotive, aerospace & defense, construction and medical. China led the Asia Pacific regional market with a revenue share of nearly 40% in 2017 on account of rapid industrialization coupled with increasing foreign investments.

The growing population coupled with rising consumer spending on personal care products has resulted in increased production volumes for cosmetics manufacturers across emerging economies including India, Thailand and Indonesia. This factor is anticipated to have a positive impact on industry growth over the forecast period.

North America was valued at USD X million in 2017 owing to high consumption rates from end-use industries such as aerospace & defense.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight and strong materials in automotive and aerospace industries
  • Growing need for energy-efficient insulation materials
  • Rising popularity of metal foam in construction industry
  • Increasing use of metal foam in medical implants and prosthetics
  • Growing demand for advanced filtration systems
