Constrained Layer Damping market size to reach $ 1,160 Bn by 2026

July 01, 2019

Worldwide constrained layer damping (CLD) market is estimated to reach $1,160 billion by 2026, according to the latest research available at Market Study Report LLC, report provides extensively data on market share, growth, trends and forecasts for the period 2018-2026.

As per the report, constrained layer damping market is projected to experience significant growth in the ensuing years. This development is attributable to numerous advancements fueled by strong growth in applications across industries like aerospace, automotive, defense and construction. The product range’s ability to reduce noise and vibrations generated between the connection of metal or plastic parts would mainly boost CLD market over the coming years.

For the uninitiated, CLDs are types of shear-related energy dissipation structure achieved through the interlocking of two or more than two physical materials via a comparatively thin viscoelastic layer. The advantages of utilizing constrained layer dampening systems are the ability to achieve high loss factors with reasonably thin configurations and that the rigidity of the composite system is not overtly increased. Systematic technological advancements in constrained layer damping are bound to be witnessed in the coming years.

Based on type, the report segments the market into passive and active CLD. Passive constrained layer damping is a common technique to add damping to a system. PCLD is a facade damping treatment that comprises more viscoelastic layers and more than one non-actuated coerced layer. This system is installed on the base layer, that presents the unsolicited resonance or vibration.

Passive constrained layer damping systems have been substituted by active constrained layer damping. This technology can be defined as a foolproof, smart and efficient noise and vibration reduction technology over a large frequency band. The market is also further bifurcated based on viscoelastic material comprising butyl, polyurethane, vinyl, and others.

Constrained layer damping market is also divided on the basis of product type into steel, aluminum, non-metallic and others. The steel segment is expected to attain a larger share due to its application across various sectors. Steel, as well as composites, have a greater damping ability to decrease structure-borne noise. Additionally, based on end-use, the constrained layer damping market is divided into aerospace, automotive, marine, construction, electronics, and others. A report by Polaris Market Research estimates the automotive end-use industry to lead the CLD market in the future.
