In order to reduce the noise pollution, many nations have started implementing new regulations, which results in high demand for low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials to lower noise level in vehicles. For instance, in 2014, the European Union adopted new regulations to reduce the noise produced by passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, buses, light trucks, coaches, and trucks. For passenger cars, buses, and light trucks, the limit values will be lowered in two steps of 2 decibel A-weighting (dB[A]) each. For heavy-duty vehicles, the reduction will be 1 dB(A) for the first step and 2 dB(A) for the second step.
The global low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market is categorized into foam and others, on the basis of type. Of these, the foam category dominates the market, owing to the fact that that materials made up of foam find various applications in the automotive industry due to their high sound absorbing, vibration dampening, lightweight, and insulating properties, as compared to other products.
The low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market, based on application, is bifurcated into under the bonnet and interior. Between the two, the interior category is projected to account for a considerable share in the market in coming years. This can be ascribed to the fact that interior of a vehicle covers larger area, as compared to under the bonnet (engine). It consists of boot compartment, underbody cladding, floor covering, doors, and many more.
Geographically, Europe holds a significant share in the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market, due to the presence of a large number of vehicle manufacturers in the region. In addition, increasing demand for automobiles is also fueling the demand for these materials. For instance, as per the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), 20.8 million new vehicles registered in 2019, as compared to 18.6 million in 2014 in Europe. Further, stringent regulations to control the noise pollution generated by vehicles are boosting the demand for low-frequency sound-absorbing materials in the region.
Growing concerns among regulatory bodies regarding noise generated by automobiles are driving the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market. With the growing population, the demand for automobiles is increasing, which results in creating a greater amount of traffic on road. This, in turn, leads to noise pollution. Therefore, the regulatory bodies are implementing regulations to reduce the noise and harshness level. Due to this, the automobile manufacturers are complying new regulations while manufacturing vehicles, resulting to a high demand for low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials.
Advanced technologies, such as active noise cancelation (ANC) and road noise active noise cancelation (RANC), would provide hindrance to the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market. ANC uses vehicle audio system to minimize or remove the unwanted noise; whereas, RANC uses velocity sensors, amplifiers, microphones, and digital signal processors to cancel the noise. These technologies are easy to install and cost effective, as only one additional equipment is required; while in case of insulation materials, every part of the vehicle needs to be insulated individually.
Some of the major companies operating in the global low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market include Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A., Autoneum Holding Ltd., 3M Company, DuPont de Nemours Inc., and BASF SE.
The study provides the historical as well the forecast size of the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market.
