This is expected to enhance the performance of the ceramic foam market post- COVID-19 scenario.

Ceramic Foam Market by End-use

In 2021, the automotive segment was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Increase in the transportation and logistics activities has led to growth of the automotive sector where ceramic foams are widely used for enhancing the efficiency of exhaust gas conversion. In addition, ceramic foams offer high durability, strength, abrasion resistant, and waterproof property due to which it is most preferred ceramic foam in the automotive sector. This is projected to drive the growth of the ceramic foam in the rise in automotive sector. Moreover, rise in middle class income and young population has led to increase in trend for personal vehicles, and government support in the automotive industry has escalated the demand for ceramic foams.

Ceramic Foam Market by Region

The Asia-Pacific ceramic foams market size is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period and accounted for 46% of the ceramic foams market share in 2021. This is attributed to the proliferating demand for iron & steel from various end-use sectors such as industrial, construction infrastructure, automotive and others have led the iron & steel manufacturers to increase their production capacities where ceramic foams are widely used for temperature stability purposes and molten metal filtration purposes. For instance, according to a report published by India Brands Equity Foundation, India’s finished steel consumption is anticipated to increase to 230 metric ton (MT) by 2030-31 from 93.43 metric ton (MT) in 2020-21.

In addition, China's consumer electronics sector is increasing rapidly, which in turn has enhanced the performance of the ceramic foam market in the region. Ceramic foams are thermally stable and possess mesh like micro structure owing to which it is used in the manufacturing process of batteries, scaffolds, electrodes, and also used as coolant. According to a report published by the United Nations Statistics Division, China witnessed around 28.7% of the global manufacturing output for consumer electronic products in 2019. Also, countries such as India and Australia are witnessing a rapid increase in automotive sectors where ceramic foam is employed in automotive exhaust filtration.
