Global Electronic Hearing Protection Devices Market
, by Product Type (Electronic Ear Plugs, Electronic Ear Muffs, and Uniform Attenuated Ear Plugs), by Noise Level (10-20 db, 20-30 db, and >30 db), by End User (Personal/Individual and Commercial), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa)
, was valued at US$ 441.2
million in 2019, and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.0%
over the forecast period (2019-2027), as highlighted in a new report published by .
Key players in the market are focusing on innovation and developing technologies, which can track noise levels above permitted decibel level. This is expected to aid market players in gaining a strong foothold in the global market and also create a lucrative opportunity for other key players to offer advance protecting hearing devices in the global market
For instance, in June 2019, Apple announced new features in its watch Apple WatchOS 6, which alerts the user about the environmental noise impact on long-term hearing health and hearing safety. The inbuilt microphone detects decibel levels and notify user about the impact of it on hearing.
Moreover, increasing adoption of advanced technologies and software by market players in their products is expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in January 2019, Lincoln Laboratory researchers developed Monitoring Noise On-Body and In-Ear for Serviceperson Exposures (MNOISE) device, which records the noise level and alerts the user about harmful noise level.
Moreover, discomfort caused by electronic hearing protection devices, improper fitting, irregular communication, while wearing such devices, and other associated secondary effects such as excessive sweating or ear infection are expected to hinder growth of the electronic hearing protection devices market over the forecast period.

Key Takeaways of the Global Electronic Hearing Protection Devices Market:
- The global electronic hearing protection devices market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 0% over the forecast period, owing to rising exposure to high noise at workplace causing hearing loss and increasing government initiatives and awareness about controlling noise pollution. For instance In 2009, the European Commission issued a directive that output levels of new audio devices should be set to a standard of 85 dB and users are allowed to increase the volume to a maximum of 100 dB.
- Among product type, electronic ear muffs segment is expected to account for a largest market share in 2019, owing to new product launches of electronic ear muffs. For instance, in October 2019, Honeywell International Inc. launched latest smart hearing solution ‘VeriShield’ 100 Series Passive Earmuffs for companies, who offers protection to their workers from noise-related hearing loss.
- Among end user, commercial segment is expected to account for a largest market share in 2019. This is attributed to increasing implementation of regulatory guidelines for noise levels at workplace set by governing authorities such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Mine Safety, and Health Administration, and others. This is expected to drive growth of the commercial segment in the global electronic hearing protection devices market over the forecast period.
- Key players operating in the global electronic hearing protection devices market include Honeywell International Inc., Amplifon, Siemens Healthineers AG, Dynamic Ear Company, Hulfators Group, Centurion Safety Products Ltd., 3M, ADCO Hearing Products Inc., and EERS Global Technologies Inc.
