Transparency Market Research (TMR)’s recent report projects that the global hearing protections equipment market will witness a steady CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2017-2026) and reach valuation in excess of US$ 5,000 Mn. Increasing concerns incidence of hearing loss due to high noise levels in manufacturing plants and other manufacturing sites has led to adoption of hearing protection equipment across industries. Moreover, enactment of stricter worker safety regulations is expected to support the growth of the global hearing protection equipment market. Demand for such equipment is also on the rise owing to factors such as growing employment in construction sector, rising demand for hearing protection devices (HPD) in manufacturing sector and introduction of next-gen HPD in defense and maritime.
Robust industrialization and urbanization in countries such China, Brazil and Indian is also providing an impetus to the global sales of hearing protection equipment. In addition, availability of low cost hearing protection equipment is another factor that is likely to favour the growth of the market during the forecast period. Key trends expected to influence the growth of the market include development of custom-tailored hearing protection equipment, and increasing focus of development of technology driven equipment. However, lack of awareness among consumer about such as products and issue of hearing attenuation is may undermine the future prospects of the hearing protection equipment market.
Hearing protection equipment are being increasingly used in industries such as construction, agriculture, manufacturing, oil & gas, and pharmaceutical among others. Further, local authorities in developing countries are introducing new policies that are directed towards improving the working conditions in manufacturing facilities in the country. Workers in developing countries having a greater risk of damaging their sensory organs or picking up injuries at work as most of them work without wearing any safety gears. However, increasing efforts by government to spread awareness regarding safety measures that need to be followed at work has resulted in an uptrend in demand for safety equipment, including hearing protection equipment.
