Anti-Vibration Mounts Market: Drivers and Restraints
Rubber mounts are the commonly used anti-vibration mounts for industrial applications. However, a common problem with rubber mounts is the effect of high temperatures on the stiffness of the rubber. At elevated temperatures, all types of rubber undergo degradation reactions. This is expected to hamper the anti-vibration mounts market during the forecast period.
The need to diminish noise emitted by industrial machinery and plants is rising. Vibration isolators act as important components of noise and vibration reduction from marine plants, industrial machinery, mechanical equipment, and industrial plants.
Anti-vibration Mounts Market: Segmentation
Bobbins, which are primarily made of rubber, is low-cost anti-vibration solution to decrease vibration and shock in the industrial machinery and equipment. These bobbins are used in either compression or shear or a combination of both. Bobbins are available in various thread configurations for different industrial applications. Bobbins are specifically used in a wide range of applications such as exhaust mounts, air conditioning units, diesel engines, generator sets, and industrial equipment and machinery.
Rubber dampers are another popularly used anti-vibration mounts. They are generally used to decrease internal vibrations in machines such as motors, pumps, and power units. Rubber dampers sometimes permit vibrations in the machine parts but avoid the vibrations to be transmitted to the outside parts of the machine such as screens.
The anti-vibration mounts market can be segmented based on application into:
Passive vibration isolation denotes vibrations by passive techniques such as mechanical springs and rubber pads. Active vibration isolation comprises a feedback circuit, which consists of a controller, sensor, an actuator, along with the spring.
Anti-vibration Mounts Market: Region-wise outlook
The global anti-vibration mounts market can be divided based on geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific, especially China, accounts for large market share due to the increasing demand from industrial equipment and automotive applications. North America also holds a key share of the anti-vibration mounts market.
