The global Passive Isolation Equipment market was valued at USD 1,619.6 Million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 2,294 Million by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. Vibrations from equipment are isolated using passive technology. Isolation is achieved via passive techniques by reducing the ability of vibrations to be coupled to the isolated item. This is accomplished by using a mechanical connection that redirects or dissipates vibration energy before it reaches the item to be isolated.
Electromechanical controls for system adjustment are sometimes used in passive techniques, although the isolation mechanism is still passive. Passive systems are less expensive than active systems, as they use springs, fluids, elastomers, or negative-stiffness components. They are safe and dependable, due to their relative simplicity. Passive vibration isolation refers to the use of passive shock reduction measures such as mechanical springs or rubber pads attached to a vibrating object.
A passive vibration isolation system has three main components that act together as a harmonic oscillator: spring (K), an isolated mass (payload), and a damper (C). Natural frequency of the isolation system is determined by the payload and spring stiffness. The damper eliminates the oscillation increased within the isolation system, while the spring (isolator) inhibits floor vibrations from being communicated to the isolated payload. For its low resonance frequency, pneumatic springs are frequently used in passive vibration isolation systems. Pneumatic systems provide excellent vibration isolation and damping in a variety of applications. Passive vibration isolation systems are affordable and effective at reducing high-frequency vibration. However, their natural resonance is affected in some applications, due to low-frequency vibration. Passive vibration isolation systems have a long settling time, are difficult to manage, and have low-frequency resonance.
Increasing number of strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, agreements, partnerships, and product launches among companies to establish themselves as providers of passive isolation equipment are anticipated to create lucrative opportunities in the market in the near future. Rising adoption of various strategies by market players to increase their presence and share in the market is expected to create growth opportunities in the market.
