Acoustic Materials Market was valued at around USD 7.8 Billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 6.4% during the forecast period, 2019 – 2030.
Acoustic is the study related to all types of mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids that includes sound, vibration, ultrasound, and infrasound. Generally, this study revolves around the generation, propagation, and reception of mechanical waves and vibrations. The primary usage of acoustic materials in modern-day construction is to minimize the intensity of emitted sound. The acoustic materials are insulated into the building from the inside for reducing the noise intensity of the outside vehicle.
These materials are preferred in the manufacturing industries for lowering the noise and vibrations produced by machines for the maintenance of workers on the shop floor. Apart from noise absorption properties, acoustic materials are also capable of providing superior fire resistance. Due to their unique property of sound absorption, reflection, diffusion, or entire blocking of sound transmission, these materials are available in a wide variety of wood, concrete, fabrics, foams, and metals which are used to reduce or amplify the sound. Acoustic materials are used in various end-use industries like automotive, building & construction, and aerospace & defense.
The COVID-19 pandemic is spread all over the world and impacts all people’s lives physically, mentally, and financially. Several people are affected by a coronavirus and a few of them cause death. To curb the spread of the virus, various governments take initiatives and impose strict regulations like lockdowns, transportation bans, and various industries shutdowns. The acoustic materials market is also drastically impacted by this outbreak.
The manufacturers of acoustic materials industries face a lot of issues like supply chain disruptions, shortage of workers, and lack of raw materials which leads to a halt the production. Moreover, reducing the construction activities, declining sales of electric vehicles in the lockdown period results in the decline in the acoustic materials market. Further, for its benefit, this material is expected to increase its demand in the coming years.
The prominent key players in the acoustic materials market outlook are the following:
The growing requirement for acoustic efficiency for increasing cabin comfort in the automobiles sector is one of the major factors driving the growth of the market. Increasing the expansion of the construction industries leads to an expansion of the acoustic materials market which is the primary factor for propelling the demand for acoustic materials. Due to the rising disposable income of consumers in developing regions and the quickening pace of immigration into major cities across the globe are rising the need for constructing new residential construction. As well as commercial construction is also expected to expand in the coming years for the rising number of institutions and increasing demand for entertainment and shopping units like malls and theatres.
As the living standards improve, there is a need of reducing the sound level in several areas such as homes, automobiles, and workplaces which is the major driving factor accelerating the market growth. The rapid industrialization and increasing traffic congestion result in high decibel sound generation are developing the demand for acoustic materials in residential applications for lowering the outdoor noises.
Growing concerns regarding the overuse of eco-friendly bio-based products over synthetic materials that can substitute for existing acoustic materials are projected to restraint the growth of the market. The raw material prices fluctuations are hampering the growth of the market of acoustic materials.
Rising the stringent guidelines regarding the reduction of noise pollution by the government agencies has compelled the automotive manufacturers and building & construction industry to implement acoustic materials in their products which is the major opportunity to fuel the acoustic material market growth. Moreover, rising sales of electric vehicles which are eco-friendly and generate less noise are further propelling the growth of the market of acoustic materials.
Installation of substitutes in the noise-control systems like the Active Noise Control (ANC) system which reduces low-frequency noise generated in an interior area of the passenger car is limiting the growth of the global market.
