“Introduction of enhanced comfort and safety features in automobiles”
The global automotive acoustic materials market, by value, is projected to grow to USD 3.5 billion by 2027 from USD 2.4 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 4.79%. Improvement in current safety and comfort features in automobiles would accelerate the growth of the acoustic materials market. The fluctuating raw material prices of acoustic materials will result in restraining the automotive acoustic materials market.
“Engine encapsulation to be the fastest growing acoustic materials market, by component”
Engine encapsulation is projected to be the fastest growing segment in the automotive acoustic materials market, by component. OEMs are planning to be more customer-centric in terms of services. The growing number of car buyers are looking for a quieter interior cabin. To counter this, OEMs, component manufacturers, and material providers are jointly working to develop improved components with better acoustics. Engine encapsulation improves vehicle acoustics while lowering interior and exterior noise generation from the vehicle. The designs of engine encapsulation are made such that ideal acoustic and thermal management in the vehicle can be realized. Engine encapsulation system insulates and prevents batteries from cooling too rapidly while not in operation. On the other hand, it retains thermal energy in the battery so that it returns to its ideal condition more quickly upon reuse. Automotive engine encapsulation is done by materials such as polypropylene, polyurethane, polyamide, glass wool, and carbon fiber. Hence, engine encapsulation is projected to be the fastest growing acoustic materials market.

“Polyurethane to be the largest segment for acoustic materials market, by material type”
Polyurethane is the most widely used technology in acoustic materials. Moreover, this material is very effective in terms of noise absorption and superior to other traditional acoustic materials such as textiles. Most OEMs in developed and developing countries are nonwoven materials because of their proven efficiency. As per industry insights, polyurethane is expected to continue dominating the overall market, followed by polypropylene and fiberglass. Hence, polyurethane is the largest segment and will continue to be the highest contributor to the acoustic materials market.
“Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for acoustic materials, by region”
Market growth of the Asia Oceania region is driven by the dominating acoustic materials market in China. In recent years, the region has seen the highest acoustic material manufacturing growth. The Asia Oceania region is projected to be the largest market capturing 50.15% of the total market share. Strong economic growth, increasing focus on automobiles, developments related to acoustic materials, and government regulations pertaining to vehicle noise have triggered the demand for acoustic materials in the region. BASF (Germany), 3M (US), and DoW Chemical (US) are the leading acoustic material players in the region. According to MarketsandMarkets analysis, majority of the Asia Oceania acoustic materials market is driven by China. This trend is expected to continue in years to come. Owing to the abovementioned factors, Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for acoustic materials, by region.
