FrequentlyAsked Questions

Similar to the structure of foam in common materials like polystyrene or sponge, metal foam, often referred to as metallic foam or foam metal, is a lightweight material made of a solid metal matrix with linked gaps or pores scattered throughout. These voids, which can be micro- to macro-scale in size, drastically lower the material's density without compromising its structural integrity.

Lightweight materials are in high demand from sectors like automotive, aerospace, and transportation as a way to boost performance, cut emissions, and increase fuel efficiency. Due to their high strength-to-weight ratio and low density, metal foams are ideally suited to satisfy these needs, which will propel market expansion.

The global metal foam market size was worth around USD 86.21 million in 2023 and is predicted to grow to around USD 128.01 million by 2032.
