A resonator is essentially a device that exhibits resonance or resonant behavior. A resonators oscillates at a specific frequency known as the resonator’s resonant frequency. These oscillations can be either mechanical or electromagnetic. These devices are beneficial for generating waves of specific frequencies or to select certain frequencies via a signal. The quartz crystals used in devices including radio transmitters and quartz watches yield oscillations of specific frequency. Exhaust pipes in automobiles are premeditated as acoustic resonators that work in tandem with the muffler in order to reduce noise, by creating sound waves that cancel each other out. A resonator intake duct is a device that is used to reduce the pressure of the waves that are formed in the air intake duct of the engine, thereby decreasing the noise of engines.
Increasing implementation of ARIDs or aftermarket automotive resonator intake ducts by the vehicle enthusiasts is one of the primary factors driving the growth of the automotive resonator intake ducts market. The OEM fitted resonators reduce the engine noises and hence automobile fanatics are adopting aftermarket automated resonator intake duct (ARIDs) in order to increase engine rumbles. The noise generated by the engine can be raised with custom-made components on branded vehicles which attracts the young automobile aficionados. Additionally, the aftermarket alternatives offer a range of enhanced resonator units with a variety of branded vehicle engine grunts dependent on the frequency of the resonator. Furthermore, the availability of electronically controlled resonators where the frequencies can be set at will, is likely to fuel the growth of the automotive resonator intake ducts market further.
Another factor that is gaining momentum in the market is the 3D printing of automotive resonator intake ducts and other plastic parts. 3D printing are being used to design wiring connectors and harnesses. Hence, the 3D printing technology offers an advantage over the traditional manufacturing processes and many companies are using 3D printing for designing and development. This increase in adoption of 3D printing is likely to drive the overall market.
The global automotive resonator intake ducts market is segmented on the basis of end-user and geography. On the basis of end-user, the market has been bifurcated into aftermarket, and OEMs. In 2016, the OEMs held a significant share of the global automotive resonator intake ducts market. This segment is likely to dominate the overall market during the forecast period. Automotive resonator intake ducts are customary OEM fitments that improve the performance of an automotive engine and decrease engine noise. As the automobiles production is increasing at a significant rate, the end user segment is expected to observe a sturdy growth in the coming years.
