Automotive acoustic engineering services are a subset of engineering services that deals with designing and developing a sound system, noise control, and acoustic components in automobiles. The market for automotive acoustic engineering services consists of companies that sell products and services used for tuning out noise from various automobile parts so that it has no impact on the interior or exterior of the vehicle.
Physical and virtual acoustic tests are the primary automotive acoustic engineering service categories. Services that measure vibration, sound, and noise are considered physical acoustic testing. In contrast, the services that measure vibration simulations, signal analysis, and calibration are considered virtual acoustic testing. The several applications of automotive acoustic engineering services include body and structure, interior, drivetrain, powertrain, and many others.
Increasing sales of sports utility vehicles and multi-utility vehicles drive the growth of automotive acoustic engineering services. The sports utility vehicle ‘SUV’ refers to a car type with high off-ground clearance, four-wheel drive, and rugged styling. SUVs and MUVs benefit from automotive acoustic engineering services that provide soundproofing options to reduce engine noise. The SUV sales are expected to grow in volume and market share in the forecast period driving the market for automatic acoustic engineering services.
Simulation software is anticipated to have the largest market and the fastest growth during the forecast period. The main benefits of simulation include improved acoustic testing and measurement, an abundance of testing options, lower costs for research and development, and decreased development time. Moreover, the inclusion of artificial intelligence in the simulation aids in accurately understanding the actual behavior of components.
The interior applications are expected to drive the most growth in automotive acoustic engineering services. The increased consumer demand for a composed cabin and improved comfort can be attributed to the growth of the segment. Several sources for acoustic disturbances may originate from inside the cabin, including the gearbox, trunk panel, dashboard, HVAC system, and infotainment.
The market for electric and hybrid vehicles is expected to grow during the forecast period. These vehicles contain new components which may be the source of noise, such as a battery, tires, motor, wind, squeaks, and rattling sound from the vehicle that requires consideration if the acoustic performance is to be improved. Moreover, the new legislative guidelines for minimum noise requirements have influenced the acoustic engineering of electric and hybrid vehicles, thus driving the market for automatic acoustic engineering services.
