Innovation spurs Growth in Hearing Protection and Communication Devices Market


Arizton’s recent market research report on the global hearing protection devices market identifies 3M, Honeywell, and Phonak Communications as the leading vendors that are likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. The research report provides a comprehensive industry study, competitive analysis, and trend forecasts. The study segments the market into product types (earplug and earmuff), protection type (active and passive), features (hearing protection and protective communication), end-users (defense, manufacturing, construction, aviation, and others), and geography (North America, Europe, APAC, Latin America, and MEA).

The global hearing protection and communication market is likely to reach over $2 billion, growing at a CAGR of over 5% during 2018−2024.

The personal protective equipment market is growing at a CAGR of over 7% due to increasing awareness about occupational hazards and growing pressure from regulatory bodies for adoption of hearing protection gears. The strong growth of the manufacturing and construction industries globally is one of the key factors driving the demand for personal protective equipment.

The leading three drivers and trends driving the global protective communication market are discussed below:

Growing Demand for Active Protection and Communication Devices

Intelligent hearing protection products are the devices that offer active or dynamic hearing protection from potential noise. These products provide situational awareness to the wearer by amplifying ambient noise. The major features of intelligent active hearing protection and communication devices are noise isolation and differentiation in safe and hazardous noise levels, thereby allowing the user to be aware of ambient noises and have a conversation with peers even in a high-noise environment and the enhancement of speech using inbuilt microphones. Intelligent hearing protection products are smart alternatives to passive hearing protection products that provide uniform attenuation irrespective of the noise level. Thus, the global intelligent hearing protection products market is likely to post a CAGR of over 10% during the forecast period.

Innovative Manufacturing and Advancements in Technology

As innovation characterizes the global intelligent hearing protection products market, the focus is shifting toward efficient and lightweight technologies that enhance user comfort. SensGard, an emerging vendor in the market, offers intelligent hearing protection products by deploying a patented, non-electronic technology - ZEM (Zwislocki Ear Muffler), which provides sound attenuation through simple manipulation of the design of the product. Vendors in the market are introducing products that coalesce entertainment and hearing features. Silenta's product, the A-COM FM, comes with an FM radio receiver that allows the user to tune in to their favorite radio station. Innovations in manufacturing and advancements in the technology are boosting the global hearing protection and protective communication devices market.

Active Noise Protection in Communication Systems

Over 80% of hearing protection products cater to commercial or industrial end-users. Individual users are relatively low. Motorsports and shooting are key application end-users for hearing protection products and are likely to grow at above-average rates during the forecast period. Sena Technologies unveiled an intelligent noise control helmet that houses an ambient noise button on the visor hinge. The activation of this button allows for the hearing of ambient sounds while protecting from unwanted noise. As comfort and fit is a key factor determining the product’s acceptance, vendors in the market are offering support and customization services.

Gentex Corp., CavCom, Elacin International, Etymotic Research, Hellberg Safety, Nonoise, Invisio, Minerva Hearing Protection, Savox Communication, Sensear, SensGard, Silenta, Sonetics, Starkey, Variphone, Silynx Communication are the other prominent vendors of the global protective communication market.
