Syntactic foam is a composite substance introduced by filling polymer, ceramic, or metal with hollow glass or ceramic matrix called micro balloons. The word ‘syntactic’ means a well-ordered grouping of the spheres and the term ‘foam’ denotes the closed cellular structure. The hollow spheres privileged of the syntactic foam offer most of the material’s advantageous properties. Syntactic foams have a low constant of thermal expansion, a great specific strength, and a lower total density owing to their gas- or air-filled matter. Syntactic foams can be working as a substitute for PVC, metals, plastics, and dissimilar forms. The greatly ordered syntactic foams are able to be utilized in designs that comprise multifunctional requirements such as radar transparency, aerospace structures, microwave electronics, and EMI shielding.
According to the report analysis, ‘Syntactic Foam Market: Market Segments: By Matrix Type (Metal, Polymer and Ceramic); By Form (Sheet & Rod and Blocks); By End User (Marine& Subsea, Automotive & Transportation, Aerospace & Defense, Sports & Leisure and Others); and Region – Global Analysis of Market Size, Share & Trends for 2014– 2020 and Forecasts to 2030’ states that the Syntactic Foam is witnessing an escalating requirement from several end-user industries such as Marine& Subsea, Automotive & Transportation, Aerospace & Defense, Sports & Leisure. Furthermore, increasing deepwater oil and gas activity and growing deep-water and ultra-deep-water projects are projected to drive the market throughout the forecast period. Also, mounting consumption of hybrid syntactic foam influenced the market growth further.
The Material composition of Syntactic Foams suggests unique mechanical properties owing to which they are used in subsea applications below 700-meter depth. The possessions of Syntactic Foams such as great buoyancy per kilogram, high compressive strength, and lower water absorption make them ideal for subsea applications that demand high concert and long lifetime. Superior formulations of the materials also have the probable to meet extreme demands regarding temperature or fire resistance. Such materials also find their application in deepwater pipe insulation, spacecraft, boat hulls, underwater vehicles, and even soccer balls.
Additionally, the Syntactic foams comprise glass micro balloons that deliver the mechanical and thermal properties that can be utilized as a core in aerospace and marine structures. The Hybrid syntactic foams are obtaining popularity in such days and are employed in several applications comprising thermal insulation, subsea and marine applications owing to their high hygroscopic and hydrostatic strong point, impact absorption, and great stiffness at low density. They are utilized in the aerospace and aviation industries as guide insulators due to dielectric properties that endure constant at high depth.
Furthermore, the worldwide Syntactic Foam Market is categorized based on regional analysis into five foremost regions. These comprise North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East, and Africa. Worldwide Syntactic Foam Market in North America held the greatest market share during the year 2019. North America will continue to register the worldwide Syntactic Foam Market because of the increasing usage of syntactic foam in the marine & subsea industries in regions comprising Canada, the US, and Mexico.
