Acoustic Materials Market by Type, Component, ICE & EV, and Region - Forecast to 2022 - Research and Markets


The "Acoustic
Materials Market by Type, Component, ICE & EV, and Region - Forecast to
report has been added to Research and Markets'

The acoustic materials market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.99%
during the forecast period, to reach a market size of USD 2.93 billion
by 2022 from USD 2.09 billion in 2017.

Increasing focus towards interior cabin comfort, global rise in vehicle
production, increasing premium vehicle sales, and continuous
upgradations in noise regulations by the regional authorities such as
European Union (EU), and the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) for ICE and electric vehicles are the key drivers
for this market. Fluctuating raw material price and the recycling of
acoustic materials are few of the challenges for this market.

The textiles segment is estimated to be the fastest growing automotive
acoustic material segment during the forecast period. Textiles offer
advantages such as reduced weight, better sound absorption, and improved
aesthetic features compared with conventional materials. According to
European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA), the nonwoven
textiles find multiple automobile applications that include interiors
(54%), exteriors (19%), filtration (12%) and battery parts (5%). The
demand is expected to grow in future owing to its advantages and further
drive the textiles market.

The hybrid vehicle is estimated to dominate the acoustic materials
market for electric vehicles during the forecast period. The demand of
acoustic materials is directly influenced by the hybrid vehicle sales.
According to this analysis, out of the total electric vehicle sales in
2016, the hybrid vehicles contributed around 71.8%. in 2016, the Asia
Oceania region had the highest demand of hybrid vehicles, which stood at
approximately 67.9%. Also, considering these vehicles are expensive than
the ICE vehicles, the demand of interior comfort would remain high,
which will consequently fuel the demand of acoustic materials for HEVs.
