Intelligent hearing protection devices (IHPDs) minimize noise exposure level and the risk of hearing loss, especially in extreme noise environments and remote work sites. However, understanding communications in extreme noise and at work sites is challenging while wearing hearing protection. Thus, with extreme protection a worker cannot hear and is vulnerable to other safety hazards, whereas inadequately protected workers are at a higher risk for noise-induced hearing loss. Therefore, intelligent hearing protection is essential to safeguard working professionals, provide situational awareness, and to streamline the process flow.
The growth of the global IHPD market is driven by rise in employment rates in industrial sectors such as oil & gas industry, aviation, and others. Furthermore, increase in hearing loss caused by occupational noise, rise in construction activities, and development of sound amplification earmuffs are anticipated to supplement the market growth during the forecast period. However, introduction of custom-made ear plugs & other alternative solutions is anticipated to restrict the growth of this market.
The global IHPD market is segmented on the basis of product, application, and geography. Based on product, the market is bifurcated into ear plugs and earmuffs.
