The installation of a muffler can make a significant difference to the noise level of a car. The primary function of an automotive muffler is to reduce the noise emissions from an engine. Automotive mufflers reduce noise production simply by allowing exhaust gases to pass through passages. Two types of automotive mufflers are available in the market: Reactive or reflective mufflers and absorptive mufflers. Automotive mufflers consist of baffle plates, a shell, end plates, perforated and non-perforated pipes and absorption materials. Automotive mufflers have the properties of reactive mufflers as well as absorptive mufflers. Whereas the reactive mufflers use destructive interference to reduce noise emissions, the absorptive mufflers reduce unwanted sound energy through absorption. For automotive mufflers to function properly, various characteristics like backpressure, desired sound, shape, cost, style, adequate insertion loss and durability must be kept in mind during the designing process. Since muffler modification offers better aesthetics and enhanced performance, it is a growing trend in countries such as Australia where young drivers expect more from their rides. Automotive mufflers usually have an elliptical, or circular cross-section design. However, most drivers prefer the circular cross section design as it is best suited to drivers and delays the onset of higher order modes in vehicles.

Automotive Muffler Market: Dynamics:
Since the optimal design of mufflers results in reduced noise from engines and enhanced fuel saving, these two factors are expected to drive the global automotive mufflers market during the forecast period. Furthermore, stringent government regulations regarding noise pollution in various regions such as North America, Western Europe and the APEJ are expected to drive the global automotive mufflers market. Moreover, the recent development of long strand fibrous materials used in exhaust systems without binders has led to their use in combination mufflers, which will further fuel the growth of the global automotive mufflers market during the forecast period.
Constraints concerning cost, backpressure and shape & size of automotive mufflers – larger mufflers are quite expensive —- may hamper growth of the global automotive mufflers market. Furthermore, designing for sufficient insertion loss at engine firing frequency and the first few harmonics, in turn, may hamper the growth of global automotive mufflers market during the forecast period.
