Hearing Protection Devices Market By Device Type (Ear Plugs, Ear Muffs, Ear Bands, Otoplastics), By Application Area (Manufacturing, Mining, Defense, Construction, Agriculture, Oil And Gas, Transportation) - Growth, Future Prospects, Competitive Analysis And Forecast 2017 - 2025

Noise pollution is the most insidious form of pollution causing dreadful outcomes not only among industrial workers but also in daily lives. Exposure to extensive noise leads to degraded mental and physical health, therefore the best plausible method for noise protection is the application of hearing protection device with NRR (Noise reduction rate) ratings.

As per the study of World Health Organization (WHO), around 1.1 billion young populations are at risk of developing hearing loss due to unsafe listening habits and more than 15% of Americans are suffering from hearing impairment. Occupational hearing loss is very common hazardous illness across the globe which costs extremely high. In U.S. over 22 million workers get exposed to higher noise at their workplace each year. Hearing protection market is majorly driven by initiatives of government organization like National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) introduced guidelines for successful hearing loss prevention and their strict enforcement.

 Hearing Protection Devices Market

Geography wise, the global hearing protection devices market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Hearing Protection Devices Market

North America is estimated to hold the maximum share of hearing protection devices market followed by Europe. Every year approximately 22 million American population are exposed to severe noise at workplace, mostly in manufacturing sector. The significant growth in hearing protection devices market in North American region is because of strict following of OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines in workplace and raising awareness about workplace safety among industrial workers. Government initiatives have been started to prevent hearing loss as age associated hearing loss is an important issue in European region and this factor drives the growth of European hearing protection devices market. The European market is witnessing substantial market growth due to the presence of maximum hearing protection device manufacturers. Increasing expenditure in occupational safety research contributes considerable growth to the hearing protection devices market. The popularity of custom-molded ear plugs drives the hearing protection devices market in Europe much more than American region. Moreover, easy accessibility of hearing protection devices and adaptability of these products among public drive the hearing protection devices in these regions. Few countries of Europe, China and New Zealand have strict rules for the employees of entertainment or recreational sector for hearing protection which fuel the market growth of respective nations.

Being the hub of agriculture and manufacturing industry, Asia-Pacific region faces extensive issues of hearing loss in occupational sectors majorly. Hearing loss is more prevalent in this region due to slowly growing economies, developing industrialization, lack of appropriate public awareness and training. This under-addressed hearing loss issues is highest in Asia-Pacific and Middle-East attributed to absence of legislation about noise exposure in workplaces, shortfalls of implementation of hearing conservation programmes and under enforced noise regulation. The market is henceforth expected to witness growth in future days due to growing awareness among workers, increasing research expenditure, healthcare initiatives and medical implementation.

The detailed regional classification of the global hearing protection devices market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. & Canada)
    Europe (Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy and Rest of Europe)
    Asia Pacific (China, India, Japan and Rest of Asia Pacific)
    Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America)
    Middle East and Africa (GCC and Rest of Middle East and Africa)
