Automotive Silencer Market Dynamics

Noise regulations and environmental laws to drive the automotive silencer market

Traffic laws require the vehicle to be equipped with a silencer in a good operating condition to avoid noise pollution. Thus, the silencer witnesses high aftermarket demand. Rise in environmental concerns has prompted automakers to develop silencers with binders and fibers in order to trap emission particles.

Rising sales of vehicles in developing countries driving the automotive silencer market

Expansion of economies of developing countries in Asia Pacific and Latin America is driving the domestic demand for vehicles, which in turn is fueling the automotive silencer market. China and India are emerging as automotive hubs in the East, due to low labor cost thereby driving the manufacturing volume of vehicles.

Advent of electric vehicles to hamper the demand for automotive silencer

Battery electric vehicles do not have an internal combustion engine; consequently, they no longer require a silencer. Rising demand for battery electric vehicles is likely to hamper the automotive silencer market. However, battery technology is still evolving and hence, the market is inclined more toward hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, which require an automotive silencer.
