The NVH testing market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.08 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.05% during the forecast period. For the study purpose, the base year considered is 2015, and the market forecast is provided for the period between 2016 and 2022. Noise vibration and harshness (NVH) testing equipment is used to test and monitor noise, vibration, and harshness in mechanical and electrical systems. These environmental disturbances can have an impact on both humans and systems. As NVH can have a harmful impact on human health, government agencies across the world seek to address this issue by reducing the noise levels at source. Moreover, there is increasing focus on fuel efficiency among the automotive manufacturers. These factors are expected to drive the market for NVH testing.

This report provides a detailed analysis of the NVH testing market based on type, vertical,  and geography for four main regions North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). The report provides detailed information regarding the major factors influencing the growth of the acousto-optic devices market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges).

The NVH testing market is expected grow from USD 1.57 Billion in 2015 to reach USD 2.08 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.05% between 2016 and 2022. The market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years, owing to increasingly stringent environmental noise regulations across the regions as the noise has harmful impact on human health. This led the government agencies across the world to reduce the environmental noise by reducing noise levels at source. Further, the increasing exposure of a large population to environmental noise, automotive manufacturers need to reduce the noise levels. Also, the increasing focus on fuel efficiency among automotive manufacturers is also expected to drive the NVH testing market.

This report focuses on detailed segmentations of the market, combined with qualitative and quantitative analysis of each and every aspect of the classification based on type, vertical, application, and geography. Based on type, the NVH testing market has been classified into hardware and software. Hardware has been classified into sensors & transducers, meters, analyzers, data acquisition systems, and signal conditioners. The software segment has been classified into acquisition software, acoustic software, vibration software, signal analysis software, and calibration software.

Meters was the largest segment of the market in 2015 due to high demand for measurement of noise and vibration from the automotive & transportation vertical. In NVH testing, noise dosimeters are widely adopted because of the stringent regulations for monitoring, mapping, and responding to environmental noise, mainly in North America and Europe during the forecast period.  Increasing adoption of noise dosimeters, vibration meters, and acoustic meters is mainly reason for the growth of hardware in NVH testing market. The signal conditioners segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 4.16% between 2016 and 2022. The increasing complexities in the test setups with the increase in features in automotive is expected to drive the signal conditioners to meet the signal.

The market has also been segmented on the basis of software as signal analysis software, acquisition software, vibration software, acoustic software, calibration software. The signal analysis software segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.00% during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be primarily attributed to the increased need to resolve the NVH problems as well as increased need for the simulation of the designs.

The automotive & transportation vertical is expected to hold the largest market share between 2016 and 2022. This is primarily due to the increasingly stringent pass-by-noise levels for the automotive across the globe and the growing demand for hybrid and electric vehicles and its increasing need to measure low level noise is expected to drive NVH testing market.

The market for the environmental noise application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022.
