The global Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) market is anticipated to reach USD 1,160 billion by 2026 according to a new study published by Polaris Market Research.
Global constrained layer damping market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026 owing to numerous advancements that is driven by a strong growth in various application industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense and construction. Their ability to subdue noise and vibrations generating between the connection of metal or plastic parts is expected to boost the market for constrained layer damping during the forecast period from 2018 – 2026. Constrained layer damping are forms of shear-related energy dissipation systems accomplished by interlocking two or more physical materials using a relatively thin viscoelastic layer. Some of the benefits of using constrained layer dampening systems for dealing with damping of noise and vibrations are the capability to attain high loss factors with comparatively thin configurations and that the rigidity of the composite system is not evidently increased. The systematic technological development of constrained layer damping is expected to be witnessed throughout the forecast period from 2018 – 2026.
The market for constrained layer damping is segmented on the basis of type into active and passive constrained layer damping. Passive constrained layer damping (PCLD) is a recognized technique to add damping to a system. PCLD is a facade damping treatment that consists of more than one viscoelastic layer and one or more non-actuated coerced layer. These PCLD systems are installed to the base layer, the layer that presents the unwanted resonance or vibration. However passive constrained layer damping systems has been replaced by active constrained layer damping (ACLD). This technology can be described as a failsafe, smart and efficient noise and vibration attenuation technology over a large frequency band. The market is also further segmented by viscoelastic material which includes butyl, vinyl, polyurethane and others. On the other hand, the constrained layer damping is additionally segmented into product type into aluminum, steel, non-metallic and others. The steel product type is expected to account for a lion share in the market owing to its application various industries. Steel along with composites have a superior damping capability to reduce structure-borne noise. Furthermore, on the basis of end-use industry the constrained layer damping market into automotive, aerospace, marine, electronics, construction and others. According to Polaris Market Research analysis, automotive end-use industry is expected to dominate the constrained layer damping market.
