Low-Frequency Sound-Absorbing Insulation Materials: Introduction

  • Low-frequency sounds are sound waves with frequency below the lower limit of audibility (generally at about 20 Hz). Low-frequency sounds are sounds measured at about and under 500 Hz.
  • Low-frequency sound is most common in urban areas. It can result from many sources such as automotive, industrial machinery, artillery and mining explosions, aircraft, and ventilation and air-conditioning units. Low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials are used to reduce the intensity of this unpleasant and damaging sound.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Low-frequency Sound-absorbing Insulation Materials Market

  • Demand for automobiles has increased of late. This has led to a rise in road traffic and noise pollution. Therefore, regulations are being imposed to reduce the noise harshness level in order to decrease noise pollution. Automobile manufacturers are complying with these regulations while manufacturing vehicles. This is boosting the demand for low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials.
  • Led by an increase in regulations concerning environmental pollution, governments of various countries are taking proactive measures to ensure clean energy/green energy. The popularity of EVs has grown of late. Low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation is installed in EVs to lower noise pollution. Thus, rise in production of EVs is expected to drive the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market.

Low-Frequency Sound-Absorbing Insulation Materials Market, by Material Segment

  • Based on type, the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market can be categorized into foam and others. Foam is widely used as low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation material.
  • Foam based materials are capable of handling different frequencies of noise
  • Materials made of foam are used in various applications in the automotive industry due to their properties such as insulation, vibration dampening, high sound absorption, and lightness of weight
  • Both closed-cell and open-cell foams are used in noise insulation

Low-Frequency Sound-Absorbing Insulation Materials Market, by Application Segment

  • Based on application, the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market can be divided into bonnet and interior
  • Interior is the rapidly growing segment of the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market, as the interior of a vehicle covers a larger area compared to the bonnet (engine). It consists of underbody cladding, boot compartment, floor covering, luggage compartments, doors trim, etc.
  • Insulation of interior space of a general vehicle is slightly more when compared to engines in a luxury vehicle, as the engine is quiet as compared to the general vehicle

COVID-19 Impact on Low-frequency Sound-absorbing Insulation Materials Market

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the global economy. Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Manufacture of automobiles has come to a halt, as several governments and private sector businesses have ceased operations. Unavailability of raw materials and shortage of labor also hampered the automobile industry. This, in turn, has negatively impacted the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market.
  • However, the automobiles industry is expected to expand due to the rise in demand for EVs. This is anticipated to augment the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market.

Europe holds leading share of Low-Frequency Sound-Absorbing Insulation Materials Market

  • In terms of region, the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Europe holds significant share of the global low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market, due to the presence of many vehicle manufacturers in the region. Additionally, increase in demand for automobiles and EVs is boosting the demand for these materials in the region.
  • Germany holds the major share of the low-frequency sound-absorbing insulation materials market in Europe, led by the presence of key automotive manufacturers of luxury and electric vehicles such as Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz in the country
