DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Analysis of the Automotive NVH Materials Market" report to their offering.
The use of gasoline direct-injection (GDI) engines, especially in North America, requires engine encapsulants to ensure noise and vibration absorption, thereby providing high growth opportunities for material suppliers.
Asia-Pacific (APAC) provides significant growth opportunities for material suppliers with the market driven by high growth in automotive production as well as the trend toward adoption of European NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) standards.
The use of polyurethanes is witnessing high growth driven by superior performance capabilities while textile materials, which have superior cost performance, are witnessing growing adoption in applications requiring moderate performance such as floor module.
Innovative material technologies will provide stiff competition to conventional acoustic treatments. For instance, Quiet Steel from Material Sciences Corporation is a composite of viscoelastic polymer core material sandwiched by metal parts that provide NVH performance as well as lightweighting.
Composite blends such as polyvinylchloride (PVC)/nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) and environment-friendly materials such as soya fibers, sugarcane fibers, and hemp are expected to find increased penetration in the market due to growing focus on environment-friendly products.
