Automotive NVH Materials Market by Type (Rubbers, Thermoplastic Polymers, Engineering Resins), Application (Absorption, Insulation), Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicles, LCV, HCV) - Global Forecast to 2021
“Increased use of automotive NVH materials in passenger vehicles and stringent government regulations to make quieter and safer cars are driving the automotive NVH materials market”
The global automotive NVH materials market is projected to reach USD 13.52 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2016 to 2021. Increasing demand from the automotive industry owing to stringent government regulations for quieter and safer cars is the major factor driving the automotive NVH materials market. Automotive NVH materials find extensive applications in passenger vehicles as lower NVH levels influence the vehicle buying decisions. Growing interest and the possible use of automotive NVH materials in battery powered light vehicles is expected to drive the automotive NVH materials market in future. The development of active noise control systems for vehicles could hinder the growth of the automotive NVH materials market.
“Absorption is the fastest growing application segment of the automotive NVH materials market”
Absorption materials are manufactured using thermoplastic polymers, engineering resins, and rubbers. Manufacturers incorporate various rubbers, such as EPDM, synthetic rubber, and NBR to fabricate the various parts of automobiles to dampen and control vibrations experienced by vehicle occupants. Excellent physical properties, such as high density, high heat & weather resistance, and vibration absorbing property make rubber an ideal automotive NVH material. Polyurethane foam sheet is another NVH material used as an absorption application in automobiles.
“Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the automotive NVH materials market during the forecast period”
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to lead the automotive NVH materials market during the forecast period. The growth of the market in this region is attributed to the expansion of production capacity and the rapid growth of the automotive industry.
