A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing use of
ceramic foams in metal casting. Metal casting is a manufacturing process
wherein molten or liquid metal is poured into a mold made of sand,
metal, or ceramic containing a cavity of the desired shape. Upon
cooling, this cavity holds molten metal and forms complex geometrical
shapes. All the major metals can be made into castings, and the most
common ones are iron, aluminum, magnesium, zinc, steel, and copper-based
alloys. Metal castings products are used in many applications, including
cars, trucks, planes, trains, mining and construction equipment, oil
wells, pipes, toys, space shuttles, wind turbines, and nuclear plants.

In this report, Technavio highlights the advances in the production of
ceramic foams as one of the key emerging trends in the global ceramic
foams market:

Global ceramic foams market: Advances in the
production of ceramic foams

Technological advances have enabled the production of ceramic foam from
industrial solid wastes. Glass bottles, graphite, and sewage treatment
sludge can be used to produce ceramic foams. These ceramic foam products
offer porosity of approximately 40%-70%. Ceramic foam products produced
from industrial solid waste can be used for thermal and acoustic
insulation application. These products are commonly used in building and
construction applications, including blocks, rooftops, panels, grills,
and fireplaces. Such ceramic foams exhibit higher thermal and chemical
stability and mechanical strength in comparison to polymer foams.

"The ceramic tile industry generates large amounts of waste during
various steps of manufacturing. Ceramic sludge solid waste mainly
involves large quantities of alumina, silica, and other heavy metals. It
can be used for manufacturing ceramic foam products,"
says a senior
analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.

Global ceramic foams market: Segmentation

This market research report segments the global ceramic foams market by
type (silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, and zirconium oxide) and
geographical regions (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).

The silicon carbide segment held the largest market share in 2017,
accounting for nearly 40% of the market. This type segment is expected
to dominate the global market throughout the forecast period.

The Americas led the market in 2017 with a market share of nearly 37% of
the market share. The market share occupied by this region is
anticipated to decrease during 2018-2022.
