Noise Control System Market

2021 Analysis and Review: Noise Control System Market by Material Type – Fiberglass, Wood, Plastic Sheets, Concrete for 2021-2031

About the Report

The demand for noise control systems went through a negative phase amid the spread of the Covid-19 crisis. The sales level in this market witnessed a downturn creating potential losses for the global manufacturers. As the condition is normalizing in 2021 due to strong and stringent government efforts, the top manufacturers are trying to recuperate the losses incurred through product diversifications and innovations.

Prominent manufacturers including Saint Gobain, Armstrong World Industries, Inc, USG Corporation, GP Industries Ltd, Knauf Insulation Inc., SIAC PTE LTD, Kinetics Noise Control, Inc., QUIET STONE UK LTD, Acoustical Surfaces, Inc., Acoustical Solutions Llc, Noise Barriers, LLC and others are focusing on product innovations and product certifications for ensuring improved varieties of noise control systems to attract and retain the customers.

The well-known manufacturers are adopting contracts and agreements, research & developments, technological advancements, and mergers & acquisitions to maintain and strengthen their respective market shares globally.

For instance, in March 2021, Kinetics Noise Control Inc. announced the launch of KNP-E a cost-effective, metal acoustic panel to the current line-up of Kinetics KNP panels. The KNP-E is a rigid sound absorber option that achieves the acoustical and durability performance of the standard KNP panels. This KNP panel lowers costs by folding on two sides and utilizing top channels for installation.

In addition to this, in December 2020, Armstrong World Industries, Inc. announced the acquisition of Arktura, LLC, a designer and fabricator of ceilings, walls, partitions, and facades. Arktura’s capabilities will further strengthen AWI’s robust portfolio of architectural specialty solutions along with its design capabilities across its entire enterprise. 

In terms of growth, North America holds a dominant share in the global noise control systems market. Asia Pacific region is projected to grow prominently and is expected to retain their commanding position throughout the course of the forecast period. All the other key regions are driving the market growth and opening various opportunities for manufacturers.

Consumer preference moving towards less noisy products

It is hardly surprising that buyers across the world prefer less noisy products over their noisier counterparts. Quieter equipment is more expensive because of the built-in soundproofing mechanisms but this hasn’t deterred consumers in the slightest.

Quieter equipment is more beneficial and economical over a period of time and a number of companies such as YAMAHA Corp., Warner Howard, Mitsubishi Electronic Corp., Whirlpool, and Sharp Electronics Corp. have focussed their attention on making ever-quieter products. Industrial equipment, household appliances, and the transportation industry stand to benefit the most from this, thereby boosting the noise control system market

Healthcare industry to drive the noise control system market

The hospital environment plays a critical role in a patient’s well-being and the road to recovery. High noise levels in the hospital or its vicinity can affect the health of the patients considerably. A quiet hospital environment allows a speedy recovery by lowering the patient’s blood pressure and stress levels, improving sleep quality, and reducing intake of pain medication, thereby culminating in high staff productivity and a healthy overall atmosphere. Noise control systems in hospitals enhance patient recovery and decrease stress and pressure levels.

Noise cancelling technology being implemented in automobiles

Excessive noise created while driving can affect the processing power of a driver leading to avoidable stress and distractions. Noise control systems installed in vehicles play a vital role in allowing both drivers and passengers to enjoy a peaceful, comfortable, and safe journey. The iconic American giant, Ford Motor Company has recently unveiled a car enabled with a noise control system.

The Ford Mondeo Vignale has high-tech noise cancellation features that go a long way in reducing the impact of road, tyre, and wind noise, thereby improving the driver’s experience. There is currently a race underway with several leading automakers such as Toyota and Honda seeking to improve their sound deadening technology, boosting the overall noise control system market.

Regulatory guidelines favour demand in the noise control system market

The World Health Organization and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development are the two primary regulatory authorities that study and assess the impact of environmental noise. Several laws have been introduced across the world to curb the menace of sound pollution and reduce its associated health issues.

For e.g., in Saudi Arabia, traffic noise is a major problem on account of the rapid growth of urban agglomerations coupled with a high population growth. Therefore, the best way to control this scourge is by the imposition of heavy fines that should reduce noise levels in the region.

Power consumption a major restraint in the noise control system market

Ventilation systems, industrial machinery and equipment motor fans create substantial noise pollution. DC fans use a new form of ECM that is ultra-efficient and ultra-quiet at the same time. DC fans are perfect in diverse applications such as telecom switches, medical appliances, and car entertainment systems, where noise is often a hindrance. Quieter equipment is typically more power-intensive but it has greater benefits in the long run, spurring its adoption.

North America and APEJ key regions in the global noise control system market

North America and APEJ account for more than half the noise control system market and they are expected to retain their commanding position throughout the course of the forecast period.

North America should record a robust CAGR of over 5.8% enabling the regional market to grow by the end of the forecast period. APEJ will record a CAGR of over 6.0% during the forecast period.
