The Global Vibration Isolators Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 6.8% during the forecasting period (2021-2028).
Vibration isolators are useful for reducing the transmission of noise and vibration between two structures or equipment. The vibration isolators are useful for protecting the structures or equipment from damage during operations and natural calamity. Vibration isolators have the ability to reduce vibration transmission at higher frequencies. Vibration isolators can operate more smoothly and quietly. These isolators provide fewer disturbances to surrounding equipment and personnel. These isolators permit a great transmission of vibration at the resonant frequency of the system.
The market is driven by the rising demand for vibration isolators to protect from vibration in the construction sector due to rotating heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and escalators. The vibration isolators are less susceptible to damage. The vibration isolators have the resistibility to corrosion along with the ability to perform in elevated temperatures. There are growing vibration isolators in the aerospace and defense industries, including tanks, drones, missiles, and marine applications. The growing necessity of fire protection and sustainability in the construction and manufacturing industries shall stimulate market growth.
There is an increase in the launch of the vibration isolators. For instance, in May 2020, Minus K Technology, a leading manufacturer of passive vibration isolation products had launched the Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation platform - the ultra-thin, low-height model CT-2 passive isolator at just 2-1/2 inches in height, delivering 1/2 Hz vertical natural frequency, and 1-1/2 Hz horizontal natural frequency considerably more low-frequency vibration isolation performance compared to air tables and active systems. The new CT-2 isolator comes in several capacity ranges to match vibration-sensitive instruments such as SPMs (AFMs, STMs, etc.), micro-hardness testers, profilers, interferometers, electron microscopes, or other imaging systems, for weight loads from 20 to 250 lbs.
In May 2017, Technical Manufacturing Corp. (TMC) had launched the UltraDamp, a very-high-damping pneumatic vibration isolation system that is ideal for vibration-sensitive applications with high-force, high-velocity, X-Y motorized stages that require fast settling time of the payload. UltraDamp isolators provide a more aggressive damping level that ensures that the air isolators' resonant frequency is not amplified by more than 3-5 dB. The UltraDamp is ideal for semiconductor, liquid crystal display (LCD), photovoltaic cell (PVC) inspection and lithography tools, and other instruments with motorized stages that require both vibration isolation and aggressive settling of payload-induced motion.
However, the vibration, shock, and noise disturbances range from simple annoyances that hinder the market growth. These adverse effects have resulted in shortened equipment life and can negatively affect the vibration isolators' performance, reliability, comfort, and safety.
The global vibration isolators market is segmented on product type as the elastomeric isolators, mechanical isolators, air isolators, compact pneumatic isolators, and others. The elastomeric isolators segment is expected to have a significant market share of XX% in 2019. The elastomer vibration isolators provide the alternative to pneumatic, mechanical spring, and other isolation mount technologies. The elastomer vibration isolators provide cost-effective solutions to problems involving vibration, shock, and structural noise control. The elastomer vibration isolators comprised excellent structural stability and short settling time for high throughput machinery. It is easy to integrate the with elastomer vibration isolators breadboards or existing supporting structures.
The elastomer vibration isolators can be built into equipment isolation supports. These vibration isolators have the ability to quickly attenuate the transient motions by reducing the settling time of the equipment after the stage movements or other disturbances. There is increasing usage of elastomeric isolators in the engines, radiators, chassis, and other ground support equipment components. The availability of elastomeric vibration isolators dominates the market. For instance, Xi'an Hoan Microwave Co., Ltd's JGX-1278 wire rope elastomeric vibration isolator is the 8 loops 12.7mm diameter model with max static load 122kg to 370kg especially used in the precise instruments or systems for noise attenuation. It can be used in several industries such as military vehicles, defense like land system, air defense systems, precision-guided missiles/munitions, ballistic protection system, Fuze system, motor drivers, highway transportation, marine, shipbuilding, navy, energy, electronic sensing devices, mobile electronic devices, etc.
Further, the market is also classified based on architecture, transportation, aerospace and defense, electronics, industrial, manufacturing, medical, etc. The architecture segment accounts for a significant market share of XX% in 2019. There is increasing usage of vibration isolators to support the buildings and build structures to support the buildings and build structures to protect from low-frequency ground-borne noise and vibration generated from external sources. The vibration isolators have demonstrated excellent performance in reducing resonance amplitude. There are growing preferences for vibration isolators for the buildings. The vibration isolators enable the building owners to install complex heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems without worrying about vibration problems.
By region, the global vibration isolators market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, North America dominated the global vibration isolators market and expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period due to the higher usage of the vibration isolators in various industries such as architecture, transportation, aerospace and defense, electronics, industrial, manufacturing, medical, and others. There is a growing demand for vibration isolators for attaining compliance with updated stricter building codes to make the structures capable of withstanding adverse conditions such as earthquakes and blasts. The increasing adoption of fire-retardant materials for providing fire protection and sustainability in the construction and manufacturing industries shall stimulate market growth. There is a presence of a large number of companies manufacturing vibration isolators. Several companies are developing technologically advanced vibration isolators.
Asia-Pacific is expected to have a positive market growth over the forecasted period due to the rapid industrialization as vibration isolators are widely used for industrial processes and equipment. There is a growing usage of vibration isolators for marine plants. There is increasing acceptance of vibration isolators for manufacturing high-end microscopy imaging systems and semiconductors. The growing research and development activities for the vibration isolators' development will fuel market growth over the forecasted period.
