Acoustic and Thermal Insulation Market for Electric Vehicles Market

Electric vehicle sales have slowly gained momentum in many regional markets, but the market is still minuscule as compared to the global internal combustion (IC) engine-based vehicles market. As various projections indicate that electric vehicles will eventually dominate the automotive industry, many existing vehicle manufacturers, along with several new players, have started aligning their company goals toward producing electric vehicles.

Many leading automotive OEMs have partnered with insulation material suppliers to use the materials in their electric vehicles. As governments across the world are starting to implement plans toward increasing electric vehicle sales and phasing out IC engine vehicles in their countries, the market for acoustic and thermal insulation for electric vehicles is also bound to increase.

Acoustic and Thermal Insulation Market for Electric Vehicles Industry Overview

The global acoustic and thermal insulation market for electric vehicles, along with the summary of different segmentations, are covered in this research study. The global acoustic and thermal insulation market for electric vehicles was valued at $134.4 million in 2020 and is projected to reach $1,108.4 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 20.45% during the period 2021-2031.

The growth in the global acoustic and thermal insulation market for electric vehicles is attributable to the ongoing demand for innovative, lightweight, and efficient insulation materials for electric vehicles. Generally, for the context of determining a material’s thermal conduction on a flow of heat, the material’s R-value is calculated. The higher the R-value, the better the insulating effectiveness of the material. The current demand for insulation materials for electric vehicles is to be lightweight, cheap, and with a higher R-value for insulation.

Market Segmentation

Acoustic and Thermal Insulation Market for Electric Vehicles by Material Type

The material type segment of the acoustic and thermal market for EV includes foam, fiber, pad and mat, and others. The foam segment is estimated to dominate the global acoustic and thermal insulation market for electric vehicles due to their low cost and durability, along with their better additional thermal insulation properties as compared to other types of insulation materials. As the need for insulation in electric vehicles is also increasing due to the advent of BEVs, foam-based materials have been preferred for battery and electric motor insulation, along with insulation inside the passenger cabin. Additional insulation layers are often used in high-end vehicles, and low-end electric vehicles have also shifted from butyl or fiber-based materials to foam-based materials for acoustic and thermal insulation applications.

Acoustic and Thermal Insulation Market for Electric Vehicles by Application type

The application type segment of the market is categorized into passenger compartment, rear compartment, under the hood and battery pack, and exterior. The passenger compartment segment currently holds a significant number of application opportunities for insulation materials in an electric vehicle. This is due to multiple application areas for insulation materials inside a passenger cabin, such as inside door panels, under the floor, on the roof, on vehicle seats, and on the vehicle dashboard. The fact that a large quantity of insulation materials is needed to cover the insides of a passenger vehicle cabin leads to the high usage of insulation materials for this application.

Acoustic and Thermal Insulation Market for Electric Vehicles by Region

The Asia-Pacific region generated a majority of the revenue in the global acoustic and thermal insulation market for electric vehicles due to the increased adoption of EVs in this region. Many prominent vehicle manufacturers are present in this region, which along with various regional governments, have promoted the usage of electric vehicles mainly through government-subsidized affordable EV models.
