Hearing Protection Devices Market Anlysis with Inputs from Industry Experts 2018 to 2026

Press Release

Hearing loss is the inability to hear any kind of sounds, whereas deafness is the inability to know and understand speech heard even after the sound is amplified. Intense deafness means an individual cannot hear at all, characterized by the inability to detect or identify sound, even at highest volume. According to Hearing Loss Association of American, in 2013, around 20% of the population of the U.S.—approximately 48 million people—reported some level of hearing loss. At an older age of around 65 years, the proportion of hearing loss is 1:3. Around 60% of individuals who experience hearing loss are either part of the workforce or are in an educational settings.

Market Dynamics

A study conducted by Noise and Health organization in Accura, Ghana, a total of 101 mill workers were examined and found that 23.7% were identified with the hearing loss symptoms. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, there are of approximately 74% of hearing loss cases in the U.S. due to manufacturing. Furthermore, approximately 12 million workers in the country are involved in the manufacturing sector. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) explains that hearing loss is one of the factor of any individual illness among the manufacturing workers. According to Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, in the U.S., in 2012, hearing loss accounted for 12% or 18, 500 cases of all recordable cases. At the state level, Ohio Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses data for 2012 recorded a total number hearing loss factors was in private sector industries itself be around 5,000 cases. Out of 5000 cases, hearing loss cases reported in Ohio’s manufacturing industries were around 800 to 900 days.

Around 60% of operating engineer working at construction industry report that they have trouble in understanding speech

An estimated one-third of the all impaired hearing cases are related to noise exposure. Occupational noise exposure is the one of the most common causes of noise induced hearing loss in the U.S. In 2013, around 10% i.e. around 22 million people of age group 20 to 69 years in the U.S. suffered from permanent hearing loss as they were exposed to high or loud noise at construction and/or respective work environment. Specifically, increasing number of workers at construction or manufacturing site and increasing adoption of hearing control devices in developed regions to boost growth of the hearing protection market. Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the prominent diseases in the U.S. and the second-largest self-reported occupational illness or injury. Certain jobs that involve loud noise exposure include mining, tunneling, drilling, heavy engineering, operation carried by powerful combustion engines such as trucks, construction vehicles, etc. With the increase in exposure of workers to such noise leads to increase prevalence of impaired hearing.

Key companies covered as a part of this study include 3M, Starkey Laboratories India Pvt. Ltd, Honeywell International Inc, Hellberg Safety Ab, Amplifon., Dynamic Ear Company, Centurion Safety Products Ltd., Sonomax Technologies Inc, Siemens Healthcare GmbH, ADCO Hearing Products Inc, and Elvex Corporation and Moldex-Metric Inc.
