Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Vibro-acoustics Absorption Characteristics in Automobiles

  • Automotive Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) Materials are the materials used for reducing noise, vibration, and harshness and increasing the ride quality and comfort for passengers in automobiles.
  • These materials can also help in vehicle weight reduction process, vehicle shock-absorbtion, and impact resistant amongst others.
  • Rubber has been a widely used material to regulate the harshness, reducing noise and damping vibrations in automobiles due to its properties. It can resist temperature and fluids, lightweight, high density, vibration absorbing properties, and low cost.
  • These materials are also being used for vehicle weight reduction processes and increase the performance and efficiency of the vehicle, primarily in electric vehicles.
  • Automobile consumers are being attracted towards comfort driving and silent cabins in passenger cars. These NVH materials help to reduce outdoor and engine noises, control the vibrations and harshness increases the stability and durability of the vehicle.
  • Increasing applications for comfort driving, growing electric vehicles, technological advancements in automobiles in developing regions are driving the demand for automobile NVH materials through the years to come.
