Aerospace foams are made up of cellular structured materials and have low density. They are generally used for cushioning, insulation and vibration dampeners. The aerospace foam market was valued $4,755.9 million in the year 2017 and anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 5.6% during 2018-2023. In addition to the properties such as rigidness, tensile strength, durable and heat resistant is increasing its demand in different aircraft applications such as rooftops and rotor blades. The rise in government initiatives in military aircrafts may increase the demand in aerospace foams.
What is Aerospace Foam Market?
Aerospace foams are segmented into different foam types. Polyurethane foam is used for providing comfort in cushioning to the customers in aircrafts. This polyurethane is sub segmented into Elastollan and cellasto based on the chemical components they are used for providing comfort in cushioning. The use of basotect in melamine foam which is used for the thermal and acoustic insulation in sidewall panels which makes a positive contribution to the rising demands for the better noise reduction. These panels are self-supporting for easy fit and installation.
What are the major applications for Aerospace Foam Market?
On the basis of application aerospace foam market is segmented into general aircrafts, commercial aircrafts and military aircrafts. General Aircrafts include those which are used for flight training and agricultural aviation and the military aircrafts are of two types’ combat aircraft and non-combat aircraft combat aircraft are those which are designed to destroy enemies’ weapons using their own aircrafts ordnance whereas the non-combat aircrafts are not designed for combat purpose but to care weapons for self-defense.
Market Research and Market Trends of Aerospace Foam Market:
- New approach in the aerospace foam industry for developing fire resistance products is done by using synthetic foams with improved stability and lifespan. In addition manufacturers are shifting towards fluorine free foams which offer an environmental friendly solution for liquid fire application.
- Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited known as HAECO is building double hinge arc headrest platform by adding a noise cancellation technology which is designed to offer a curve around the passengers head without any gaps created by a three panel headrest in which the noise dampening materials are paired up with the noise cancellation technology which are integrated into the seat of the passenger.
- Designed by ACLA Studio and manufactured by Aerofoam Industries a new approach for resolving the armrest conflict in aircrafts is by providing a comfortable positioning for two elbows on the same armrest. It is provided with a curve design which allows one person to rest the elbow on the top of the armrest and the other to rest below.
- Installation of sensors in the Aerospace foams: Seating systems equipped with sensors inside the foam are designed monitor individual seats for factors such as temperature, seat belt status and mobile activation enabling to detect any type of anomalies. This system can also monitor overhead storage bins and analyze the cabin air quality and any damages inside the aircraft using sensors which transmit real time to flight attendants, maintenance staff and onboard communications systems.
