Published:  Sep 2022 Report Code: KSI061612655 Pages: 119

The global NVH testing equipment and services market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.32% to reach a value of US$7.030 billion by 2027, from US$5.227 billion in 2020.

Growing demand for automobiles is significantly driving the market growth of NVH test equipment globally. Noise, vibration, and harshness have a negative impact on the performance of the vehicle and cause discomfort to the driver and occupants. This is increasing the demand among consumers for vehicles with increased comfort levels and is encouraging the players to adopt NVH testing equipment and services, leading to a surge in market growth. In addition, there is the presence of strict industry regulations and norms that the end-user industries must comply with, in order to make their businesses more profitable, mainly due to the fact that non-compliance against set standards leads to the imposition of heavy penalties, which can lead to an increase in the expenses that the end-user industry needs to bear. This factor is also forcing the market players to make use of NVH equipment and services, thus pushing the market growth further over the forecast period.

Increased product launches

Furthermore, the players are increasingly involved and are participating in the market through product launches in order to boost the adoption of NVH testing equipment and services to cater to the growing needs of the rapidly advancing industries. For example, recently at the Automotive Testing Expo, held in Europe in 2020, Brüel & Kjær, one of the leading players in providing sound and vibration testing equipment, announced the release of their latest range of sound level meters. The product, B&K 2245, is a comprehensive solution for carrying out basic noise measurements and is designed to be easily adaptable and intuitive. It was designed with the purpose of acting either as a standalone noise measurement device or to work with a variety of mobile application suites specifically for different operations and jobs, such as measurement of environmental noise, testing of the noise level from the exhaust or factory generated noise.

AB Dynamics announced their latest developments in testing equipment, among which one of them is the “ANVH 250 and Ground Traffic Control System (GTC)”. Their product, ANVH 250, measures the noise, vibration, and harshness transmitted from the wheel hubs, through the suspension components, to the suspension mounting points. It is also able to facilitate the measurement of the transmission of vibrations up to 250Hz, that are generated from the suspension components such as suspension springs, dampers, linkages, anti-roll bars from the suspension springs, dampers, linkages, and anti-roll bars, and elastomeric bushes. This rig was built to specifically suit the requirements of light commercial vehicles and passenger cars.

Environmental noise and Noise mapping to surge at a notable pace

Environmental noise and noise mapping segments are projected to surge at a notable pace over the forecast period, which is attributable to the fact that the noise produced by any equipment/ industrial machines or vehicles must not exceed the recommended levels as it causes noise pollution. In addition, noise mapping is an essential tool that is able to present the graph or a map of the noise being generated from the movable parts of machinery or vehicles, so that the end-user is alerted to the source and the level of noise generation and can act upon it to bring it down to the pre-defined level.

Industrial equipment to contribute to the market’s growth

Industrial equipment is projected to contribute to the market growth over the forecast period on account of the fact that, there is a requirement for machines to work properly in ore processing to maximize output and profitability. However, over time, the efficiency of industrial machines decreases due to the wear and tear that the moving parts are subjected to and the lack of lubrication, which makes the machines prone to producing more noise and vibrations, thereby increasing the lead-time and deteriorating the quality of the end-product. This results in increased adoption of noise, vibration, and harshness equipment, and services by these industries.

The automotive industry is estimated to hold a significant market share on the account of the increasing adoption of testing equipment and services in the automotive industry for various applications and to keep up with the advancements in vehicles and comply with the strict regulations imposed by the industry and government.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to show considerable growth over the forecast period

Geographically, the Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a noteworthy market share and grow at a significant pace over the forecast owing to the well-developed and flourishing automotive sector in countries such as India and China. In addition, the rapid industrialization and urbanization in the Pacific region are leading to the setting up of more industries and the demand for advanced industrial machinery is rising, which is also contributing to the position of the region in the NVH Testing equipment and services market. Moreover, the North American region is estimated to grow at a considerable pace over the forecast period, which is attributable to the rapid adoption of modern technologies and the presence of stricter industry regulations that the market players must comply with. Moreover, there are increasing investments in the aerospace and Defense sectors in countries such as the US and market players such as Timken are proving cutting-edge solutions like their NVH analysis and services solution “VSTS” (Virtual Sound Test System), which is designed to cut down on lead time and meet the needs of the customers.

Key developments in the market

  • In May 2022, Genesis developed and launched an innovative NVH technology and testing to enhance the cabin refinement of its GV60 to offer the utmost comfort to its consumers. Through this development, the technical team at Genesis has been able to efficiently reduce the tyre noise, vibration, and wind noise, significantly enhancing interior refinement and providing occupants with a quieter and more pleasant experience.
  • In May 2021, the leading global developer and provider of sound and vibration analysis solutions, HEAD acoustics, announced its collaboration with Blackberry QNX. Through this development, the former aims to integrate the latter's Active Sound Design Software with its NVH simulator, PreSense, to enhance automobile makers' sound design workflow.

COVID-19 Insights

COVID-19 significantly impacted the global NVH Testing equipment and services market. Owing to the closure of manufacturing facilities, either partially or wholly, the mandated and social distancing measures had significantly impacted multiple end-user industries of the market, including automobile, aerospace, defense, and construction, among a few others. According to the statistics derived by the European Automobiles Manufacturers Association, the new registrations for passenger cars decreased by 2.4 percent in 2021 compared to the former year. Similarly, the halt in construction projects due to the global economic recession slowed down market growth.
