Global ceramic foams market is expected to grow at a steady CAGR during the forecast period. Ceramic foams are inorganic, non-metallic materials produced from oxides and non-oxide ceramic materials such as aluminium oxide, titanium oxide, and silicon carbide. It is produced by impregnating open-cell polymer foam with ceramic slurry and then burning it in a furnace. This is a porous, brittle material with low thermal conductivity, enhanced filtration capabilities, and high temperature resistance.

Increase in the use of ceramic foams in different industries is a key driver of the market. Additionally, the use of ceramic foam in pollution control is further fostering its demand. Moreover, innovations in the production technique to develop enhanced quality ceramic foams are anticipated to provide growth opportunities for the market.

The global ceramic foams market is segmented based on type, end user industry, application, region and company. Based on type, the market can be segmented into Silicon Carbide, Aluminium Oxide, Zirconium Oxide and Others. Silicon Carbide segment is expected to dominate the market on account of its various properties such as high strength, low thermal expansion, excellent thermal shock resistance, high wear resistance, and high chemical resistance, which make it a preferred material for ceramic foams in the iron casting application. Based on end user industry, the market can be fragmented into Foundry, Building & Construction, Chemical Synthesis & Pollution Control, Automotive and Others. Foundry segment is expected to dominate the market during forecast period owing to the increase in production of consumer electronics and automobiles. Based on application, the market can be categorized into Molten Metal Filtration, Thermal & Acoustic Insulation, Automotive Exhaust Filters, Furnace Lining, Catalyst Support, Metallurgical Industry Filter and Others. The molten metal filtration segment holds the largest market share on account of the growing demand for iron, steel, and aluminium casting across all industrial verticals.

Regionally, the ceramic foams market is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the overall ceramic foams market. Asia-Pacific is followed by North America, Europe, South America and Middle East and Africa.
