Automotive Acoustic Engineering Services Market Trends


The rising demand for better audio and entertainment systems in automobiles drives market growth.


The market CAGR for automotive acoustic engineering services is expanding significantly due to the increased demand for better audio and infotainment systems in automobiles. Modern consumers want a better audio experience while driving, which has led to the integration of complex audio systems in vehicles. Vehicle audio systems have progressed from basic radio systems to modern infotainment systems with capabilities such as GPS navigation, hands-free calling, and music streaming, among others.


The market's growing need for better audio and entertainment systems has resulted in the development of new technologies and products. Automotive acoustic engineering service providers provide a wide range of services like as sound quality tuning, audio system design, and testing and validation, among others. These services strive to provide consumers with a better audio experience, which has resulted in their increasing market popularity.


For instance, Harman International, a global leader, provides a comprehensive range of audio and entertainment systems for vehicles. Among the services offered by the organization are audio system design, sound quality adjustment, and testing and certification. The company's products and services are designed to provide consumers with a better audio experience, which has led to their increased market adoption.


Noise is one of the most widespread environmental issues in modern culture. Automobiles are a major source of air and noise pollution around the world. Vehicles with multiple moving parts, such as the engine and powertrain, make greater noise. For example, the internal combustion engine (ICE) generates greater noise since it contains many mechanical components that are required for the combustion process to be completed. The incessant noise produced by the car distracts the driver and may lead to an accident. To combat rising noise pollution, governments in several regions have put tough standards on automobile manufacturers to produce less noisy automobiles.


Recently, there has been a significant increase in demand for vehicle cabin safety and comfort. Consumers' increasing preference for luxury features such as ambient lighting, infotainment, sunroofs, and massaging seats, among others, has boosted demand for passenger automobiles. On the other side, the installation of these elements has resulted in structural and airborne noise, which has raised demand for acoustics engineering services in the automobile sector. The growing demand for physical and virtual testing of doors, sunroofs, infotainment, and other car components is opening up new business opportunities.


For example, Hyundai Motor Group introduced the world's first lightweight Road Noise Active Noise Control (RANC) system to achieve noiseless driving. The technology actively controls noise by producing sound waves that are opposite to the incident noise.
