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 the highest volume. Hearing loss may happen due to several reasons such as genetic causes, complications in birth, ear infections, infectious diseases, and exposure to excessive noise. Hearing protection devices are used to protect from noise-induced hearing loss.
The increasing incidence of hearing loss is expected to drive the U.S. hearing protection devices market growth. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) 2017, in the U.S., 2-3 children in every 1,000 children are born with hearing loss naturally in either one or both ears, and around 15% of teenagers have some level of hearing loss. According to the World Health organization (WHO) in 2018, 5% of the global population suffered hearing loss from exposure to loud noise, and around 1.1 Million young people (aged 12–35 years) are at risk of hearing loss due to exposure to noise in recreational settings.
Adoption of inorganic growth strategies by key players and introduction of novel hearing protection devices in the market. For instance, in February 2020, GTX Corp., a pioneer of smart wearable technologies in U.S., entered an agreement with Hearing Armor to launch a new patented wearable technology noise reduction system (NRBz) designed to reduce loud background noise by up to 40 dB’s without attenuating low direct noise. The device is originally developed by Hearing Armor.
