This research benchmarks top participants in the global noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) testing market. Of the more than 20 companies in this space, the author identified 12 with commendable performance in the 7 key end-user segments (automotive, aerospace and defense [A&D], power generation, consumer electronics, construction, and industrial equipment).
Market revenue reached $647.1 million in 2019. The author foresees sustained single-digit growth, resulting in a 4% compound annual growth rate from 2019 to 2024. Major trends that drive the demand for NVH testing are automakers' development of electric vehicles and advanced infotainment systems, and the need for multipurpose testing instruments. The automotive and transportation industry continues to contribute the highest share of market revenue, followed by A&D and industrial equipment.
Researchers delved into companies' hardware (sensors, analyzers, meters, data acquisition systems, microphones, signal conditioners, shakers, and controllers) and software (acquisition, acoustic, vibration, signal analysis, and calibration) offerings for applications including environmental noise, pass-by noise, noise mapping, sound power, telecom testing, sound quality, building acoustics, human vibration, and product vibration.
