The Global NVH Testing Market Size is expected to reach USD 3.9 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Testing for noise, vibration, and harshness is known as NVH. NVH testing is the process of tuning a vehicle's noise and vibration characteristics so that it has little impact on both the inside and outside environments. It is a crucial step in the design and development of automobiles. This testing shows any buzzing, vibrations, squeaking, or rattling in a vehicle's construction. Additionally, because many parts, including the engine and motor, are used more often in automobiles, they eventually create unacceptable noise, which is managed with the use of NVH testing equipment. Sometimes referred to as the sound quality analysis of various metrics, including noise level and sound exposure level, Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) testing measures how loudly objects vibrate. Home appliance producers are increasingly adopting sound quality analysis to enhance their products in comparison to rivals. Testing for noise vibration harshness (NVH) uses equipment such as microphones, controllers, audio level meters, analyzers, and other software. Due to the introduction of Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) solutions in the product development program and the expanding application in several sectors, including aerospace and military, automotive, consumer products, construction, and more, the market for NVH testing is expanding dramatically.

Driving Factors

The primary industry for NVH testing is the automobile industry, and as the need for vehicles rises, increases the demand for NVH testing products. Automobile demand has been seen to rise in emerging nations, it has been noticed. Also, due to the introduction of government rules aimed at lowering vehicle noise and the rise in consumer desire for improved cabin comfort & luxury amenities, the NVH testing industry is expanding. However, the market's expansion is being hampered by the rise in the use of rental and used NVH testing equipment. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the rising trend of engine downsizing and technical improvements would present growth prospects throughout the forecast period. Additionally, the adoption of electric and hybrid powertrains, sophisticated driver assistance systems, and other new features have increased vehicle complexity in recent years, increasing noise and vibration problems. Consequently, it is anticipated that there will be a major rise in the need for improved NVH testing solutions to solve these issues.


Restraining Factors

Testing for noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) is essential for creating products for the consumer electronics, automotive, and aerospace industries. The NVH testing sector requires trained professionals with experience in testing methods, data analysis, and problem-solving. The NVH testing industry struggles with a lack of trained workers, which is a problem for many businesses. This is because of several factors, including a lack of formal education and training in NVH testing. Additionally, the market for NVH testing has been expanding steadily, which has increased the demand for qualified workers and raised salaries. Another significant contributing reason to the shortage of trained workers is the limited exposure to NVH testing. The market for NVH testing is being restrained by these factors.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the hardware segment is dominating the market with the largest market revenue during the forecast period.

Based on the type, the global NVH testing market is segmented into hardware, software, & services. Among these segments, the hardware segment is dominating the market. The hardware involves signal conditioners, analyzers, meters, data acquisition systems, sensors & transducers, and others. The greatest hardware component in the NVH testing market is a result of the growing usage of mechanical and electronic systems, including hardware components in aerospace and military, industrial equipment, automotive and transportation, and other sectors. Hardware comprises instruments such as meters, sensors, and transducers, as well as analyzers, data-gathering systems, and other widely used parts in NVH testing. Furthermore, software devices are an important part of NVH testing as well. Software plays a major role in the analysis, measurement, and optimization of many different noise and vibration-related characteristics. They are mostly employed for observing, monitoring, gathering, organizing, and analyzing the loudness, roughness, and voice levels emitted from a source.


  • In 2022, the impact hammer testing and powertrain NVH testing segment are dominating the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on the application, the global NVH testing market is segmented into impact hammer testing and powertrain NVH testing, sound intensity measurement and sound quality testing, and product vibration testing. Among these segments, the impact hammer testing and powertrain NVH testing segment are dominating the market. To replicate its actual functioning circumstances, the equipment being tested is set up on a vibration table. The gadget is then subjected to a series of regulated mechanical shocks from the impact hammer, and the ensuing vibrations are measured by vibration sensors. The collected vibration data is then examined to spot any unwelcome noise or vibration frequencies and to pinpoint their underlying source. This information may be used to determine what design changes or enhancements can be done to lessen or get rid of undesired vibration and noise. Powertrain NVH testing is a procedure for evaluating and bettering the performance of the powertrain systems in cars. The testing aids in the discovery of possible problems or design enhancements that can lower noise and vibration.
