The increased demand for comfort & luxury, increasing vehicle production & premium vehicle sale, with growing stringency in vehicle noise norms are projected to fuel the demand for the acoustic materials market"
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 MarketsandMarkets 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.
The Asia Oceania region leads the acoustic materials market and is also projected to remain the fastest growing market from 2017 to 2022. The factors attributed to the growth of this market are higher vehicle production, increasing presence of established OEMs, increasing premium vehicle sales, rising disposable income, and low production cost. According to OICA publications, out of total vehicle production in 2016, China and India contributed around 34.3%. Further, key material manufacturers such as Henkel AG & Co. KGaA and Sika Group are expanding their geographical presence in the region. For instance, in 2017, Henkel AG started a testing & development facility for composite parts in Yokohama, Japan, to fulfill the demands of component manufacturers. Additionally, according to MarketsandMarkets Analysis, the Asia Oceania premium vehicle sales has increased from 11,379.9 thousand units in 2012 to 12,938.2 thousand units in 2016 at a CAGR of 3.26%. According to China Passenger Car Association (CAAM), the demand for low segment cars has shown a downfall in China and hence, automotive OEMs are shifting their focus towards production of premium end vehicles. All these factors ultimately propel the demand of acoustic materials in this region.
