Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Hearing protection devices are devices worn in or over the ears to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. There are several types of hearing protection devices such as earmuffs, earplugs, hearing bands, and others. Earmuffs are devices worn over the ears to provide hearing protection by reducing noise levels, while earplugs are inserted in the ear canal to protect the ear from loud noise, water intrusion, foreign bodies, dust, or excessive wind. Ear muffs can be used at industrial and manufacturing sites, mines, music concerts, war (defense sector) and others.

Sound intensity measuring greater than 30 db and up to 60 db does not cause hearing damage in an individual. However, exposure to noise levels above 70 db for long term may result in hearing loss and noise above 120 db can cause immediate harm to ears. According to an article published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine in May 2020, around 325,900 people who perform maintenance tasks including snow plowing, and road paving are exposed to hazardous noise levels in the U.S.

The U.S. hearing protection devices market is estimated to be valued at US$ 409.7 million in 2020 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period (2020–2027).

Increasing incidence of noise-induced hearing loss is expected to drive demand for hearing protection devices.

Hearing impairment is not a life-threatening health concern however hearing loss has major impact on individuals' quality of life. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), in 2016, around one in eight people in the U.S. (13%) aged 12 years or older suffered from hearing loss in both ears. In the U.S., around 12% of the total population suffered from hearing impairment caused due to loud noise. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of hearing loss is driving demand for hearing protection devices to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. This in turn, is expected to drive the global hearing protection devices market growth.

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.

Market Dynamics

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.
