Earplugs are lightweight than earmuffs and are preferred by wearers across several industries

The earplug segment constituted more than 60% of the global hearing protection market. Earplugs have greater demand among the users that are surrounded by continuous loud noise with minimal changes in frequency such as machine operations and production lines. Earplugs provide users with high mobility and increased ease of handling. The demand for earplug-based intelligent hearing protection products will increase from end-user industries such as defense and law enforcement agencies because they are compatible with other protective gears. Earplugs are also lightweight than earmuffs and are preferred by wearers across several industries as they are not bulky and are easy to carry than earmuff-based intelligent hearing protection products.

The construction segment is likely to grow at lucrative CAGR during the forecast period

Defense, manufacturing, and construction are the three leading contributors to the market, constituting for more than 80% of the hearing protection market. The construction segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate, posting an average CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. The high CAGR of the construction segment can be attributed to the rise in construction activities in developed countries, where worker safety protection parameters are high. The rise in the global construction market and the awareness about noise-induced hearing losses in developing markets such as China and India translate well for active as well as passive hearing protection devices. The active hearing protection devices segment is gaining traction in the construction sector.

North America emerging as the largest market in the hearing protection market

North America is the largest market for hearing protection devices, with a market share of over 30% in 2018. The higher adoption and awareness, the establishment of new infrastructure and manufacturing facilities and increased construction activities, mainly offices and accommodation, are driving the demand for personal protective equipment, including hearing protection devices in the region. The US is investing over $90 billion in the construction and expansion of airports; this increase in the number of airport constructions and the proportional increase in the number of ground staff thereafter will drive the hearing protection devices market in the US.

3M, Honeywell, and Phonak Communications are the major vendors in the global hearing protection market.
