Acoustic Insulation Market Trends

  • Rising health issue associated with noise pollution is driving the market growth.

Market CAGR for acoustic insulation is driven by the growing health issues of noise pollution. Noise pollution has affected people since the start of industrialization in the late 18th century. It is proven that long-term noise exposure can cause various health effects, including sleep disturbance, hearing loss, annoyance, risks of stress, negative effects on the cardiovascular and metabolic system, and cognitive impairment in children. According to European Environment Agency (EEA), around 20% of Europe's population is exposed to harmful and unhealthy long-term noise levels. Moreover, as per current data, from EEA, environmental noise contributes to 48,000 new cases of ischemic heart disease every year, along with 12,000 premature deaths. In addition, approximately 22 million people suffer from chronic high annoyance, and 6.5 million suffer from high sleep disturbance.

Furthermore, it is estimated that 12,500 school children suffering from reading impairment in school in 2020 as a result of aircraft noise. According to a European Union (EU) publication, around 40% of the population in EU countries is disclosed to road traffic noise at levels exceeding 55 db(A), 20% is exposed to levels exceeding 65 dB(A) during the daytime, and more than 30% is exposed to levels exceeding 55 dB(A) at night. Thus, to overcome this issue, regulations limiting noise are being imposed by the governments of different countries.

Various acoustic insulation market manufacturers adopt acquisition, product establishment, partnership, and collaborations as essential developing approaches to keep ahead of the competition and expand their product line. For instance, in January 2021, Armacell partnered with the German TITK Group and Melamine. Armacell will manufacture effective acoustic insulation products with melamine resin-based nonwovens. This high-performance material has various emission needs and is UV and flame resistant. It does not burn or melt, making it an outstanding thermal and acoustic insulator for transportation. Similarly, In June 2019, Knauf Insulation launched its new Acoustic Batt at African Construction Expo, specifically developed to meet the demand for a noise-reducing acoustic insulation slab for the South African market. Such advanced products from key players positively drive the acoustic insulation market revenue.

Acoustic Insulation Market Segment Insights

Acoustic Insulation Material Type Insights

The acoustic insulation market segmentation, based on material type, includes stone wool, glass wool, plastic foam, and others. The glass wool segment dominated the market, accounting for major market revenue over the forecast period. This is owing to its efficiency in reducing sound transmission. In automotive, it provides a robust acoustic barrier and maintains noise pollution levels to make driving a pleasant experience. It is regarded as one of the market's most efficient and ecologically benign insulating materials. High thermal qualities assist customers in conserving energy and reducing the environmental effect. The porous, elastic structure offers efficient acoustic insulation attenuation at working temperatures of up to 300°C.
