Globally, over 400 million workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels during their working hours. The market for personal protective equipment is growing at a CAGR of over 7% owing to increasing awareness regarding occupational hazards and rising pressure from regulatory bodies for higher compliance and adoption.

The in-ear radio headset market report includes five major segments –design, product types, function, end-users, and geography.

Defense and Public Safety Segment are majorly adopting in-ear radio headsets

Defense and law enforcement is the largest end-user segment of global in-radio headset market. Government and defense ministries adopt these devices rapidly. In 2018, this segment accounted for a market share of 47% in the global in-ear radio headset market. The fatal consequences related to missed communication and reduction in hearing capabilities as well as the downgrading of the ability to perceive situational awareness and low-intensity ambient noises is one of the primary reason for the higher adoption of in-ear radio communication headsets. The headsets that are equipped with active hearing protection enhance situational awareness allow greater coordination and communication among team members. INVISIO products X5 and M3s headsets are actively used by armed forces in several North American and European countries. The increasing defense spending by governments in developing countries of the APAC region is contributing to the global in-ear radio headset market growth.

Wireless headsets are increasingly used in covert operations and surveillance activities

The headsets with hearing protection are gaining traction in the market due to the need for maintaining communications in loud noise environments while providing hearing protection to the users. The protective communication devices equipped with active protection technology tackle and reduce the loud impulse noise and automatically bring them to non-hazardous levels. North America is the largest market for wireless in-ear radio headsets with a share of 36% in 2018. In covert tactical operations and surveillance operations, the wireless headsets, primarily single ear models, are gaining traction. The wireless radio communication headsets also use transductive loop technology that is useful in mitigating the effects of electromagnetic impulses.

APAC is one of the fastest-growing regions in the global in-ear radio headset market

The growth in the APAC region is mainly supported by strong economic development in China, Singapore, India, Indonesia, and South Korea. The increasing industrial growth, expansion of commercial spaces, and improvement of the hospitality industry due to rising tourism are driving the demand for manual labor to work in environments with extremely loud machine sounds. This, in turn, is driving the demand for in-ear radio headsets in the region. Southeast Asia will be a key region for incremental demand for radio communication devices. The ongoing expansion of the current value chain and supply chain of raw material suppliers and end-users in emerging countries in the APAC region is also driving the overall growth of the in-ear radio headset market.

INVISIO, Phonak, Honeywell International, and 3Mare identified as prominent vendors in the in-ear radio headset market.
