Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) is the study of an object or component by understanding it under varied modifications of voice and vibrations. After a certain period of operation, products undergo wear and tear due to product properties and external stimulations, causing noise and/or vibrations. Noise refers to the unwanted sound caused by a specific object; vibrations refer to the oscillations occurring about an equilibrium point with respect to an object, and harshness is a subjective quality rather than a quantifiable measurement which is associated with the discomfort caused by noise and/or vibrations. NVH solutions are usually implemented to reduce or eliminate such noises or vibrations in any object. The application of NVH solutions are seen in a wide range of industry verticals such as automotive, aerospace, transportation and many more. NVH testing in the automation industry measures force, impact, and vibration in a particular vehicle. Additionally, it helps in noise reduction, shock absorption, and increased stability which can provide an enhanced driving experience to a customer. Furthermore, NVH helps in combating squeaks, rattles, and a host of other issues that affects automotive vehicle quality. NVH solutions could help to keep the vibrations inside a vehicle to a minimum.
Rising awareness among industry verticals about providing enhanced customer experience for market sustenance is one of the factors which can significantly affect the growth of the global NVH testing market. Additionally, the significant sale of white goods in the Asia Pacific region is likely to have a prominent impact on the growth of the NVH testing market. Furthermore, the noteworthy growth of the automotive and aerospace industry at a global level is also anticipated to have an impact on the growth of the global NVH testing market during the forecast period. Owing to the increased competition in the automotive industry, companies could focus extensively on avoiding vehicle noise and vibrations to get a competitive edge over other rivals. This could have an impact on this market during the forecast period 2017-2025. The increasing applications of simulation based solutions in various industry verticals for increased cost effectiveness could help boost NVH testing in domain specific offerings. For instance, Altair, a simulation based company provides NVH based simulation solutions to its customers.
