Polymethacrylimide foam provides superior performance in various aspects, such as designing, mechanical, process, the dielectric and green performance also. PMI foam core has better impact energy and load bearing capacity compared to PVC and Nomex honeycomb. By providing better load-bearing capacity it enables to the high damage tolerance of PMI foam core compared to others.

PMI foam is widely used in the aerospace industry to produce aircraft fuselage, wings, tail and floor components; helicopter blades, floors, fairings, doors, drip troughs, side vertical tails, engine hoods, etc.; and rocket fairings, low-temperature storage tanks, etc. In the aerospace and defense industry, Evonik 's PMI foam core is used under the brand name Rohacell. Major aircraft manufacturers use PMI foam in its fuselage, wings and floors in various models such as A320, A340, A380, and other brand models including C-17, ATR 72 and C919. In helicopters' various applications, such as paddles, floors, fairings, hatches, water drips, side vertical tails, engine hoods and others, PMI foam core models include EC135, NH90, LE100 and many more.

The high cost of materials and processing are one of the biggest challenges facing the global PMI foam market and is one of the major reasons why the material has not been adopted by many other industries. PMI foam is primarily used in performance-driven application where cost is not a hindrance only the performance is very important for example, aerospace and defense, formula 1 racing cars, and now the emerging industry is medical.

In 2020, the aerospace and defense industry was severely hampered as manufacturing facilities were shut down and production came to standstill due to COVID-19. This resulted in a negative impact to growth rates in several countries. PMI foam was affected but the decline in 2020 was small compared to 2019. Applications are growing for uses in medical industry for X-ray tables, CT scan tables and in places where structural bending stiffness is required.
