Material Technologies Enabling NVH Reduction (TechVision)

Material Technologies Enabling NVH Reduction (TechVision)

Noise, Vibration, Harshness (NVH) is the field concerned with measurement and modification of the noise and vibration characteristics in products such as vehicles, aircrafts, space-crafts, consumer electronics, industrial equipment, and the like. The NVH industry is characterized by stiff competition, consolidation and market maturity across most applications. Timely delivery of a product, quality, ability to grow in mature market conditions are some of the challenges that suppliers of NVH products and technology developers currently face. Therefore, it is imperative for a supplier of NVH products to distinguish from the other competitors in the market through the offer of specialty products and technologies that specifically address unmet customer needs.

This research service titled “Material Technologies Enabling NVH Reduction (TechVision)” discusses the key material technologies available for NVH reduction. It also includes a holistic analysis of the various component technologies in accordance with their technical capabilities, market needs, technology value chain, and industry requirements. The research also contains an opportunity evaluation for NVH materials and application sectors.

Materials evaluated include rubber variants/ elastomer blends, natural cork compounds, foam/ foam laminates and wool fiber/ synthetic fiber felts. This research does not focus on metals and its variants that are used in NVH reduction.

Each material is evaluated on six performance parameters namely mechanical strength, resilience, operating temperature range, fire resistance, light-weighting and acoustic damping loss factor.

Key application industry segments covered include automotive, aerospace, electronics, construction and marine.
