Sound Level Meters Market Overview:

Global Sound Level Meters Market is expected to reach $1,414 million in 2023 from $998 million in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2017 to 2023. A sound level meter is a handheld instrument with a microphone used for acoustic measurements by determining sound pressure. The diaphragm of the microphone responds to changes in air pressure caused by sound waves. This movement of the diaphragm, which involves, the sound pressure deviation, is therefore converted into an electrical signal.

Sound Level Meters Market

Over the last seven to eight years, there is an increase in insurgency against non-ecofriendly sound devices owing to the hazardous impact of high decibel noise on the environment. To control the non-auditory and auditory effects of noise pollution, the level of sound must be measured first, which has led to an increase in demand for sound level meters. In addition, high investments by government to maintain the environment quality fuels the market growth. High precision of these meters than other audio analyzers provides an opportunity for the market growth.

Market Segmentation


Rise in Concerns to the Growing Sound Levels Impact

Owing to the growth in number of automobile users, jet planes, and the use of high power woofers and speakers, there is a rise in hearing problems, cardiovascular effects, stress, annoyance, and others. This leads to an increase in concern in the world population for the development of the measures to control the noise. The basis of instrumentation states that before a quantity can be controlled, it must be measured. Hence, keeping in mind the environmental scenario, sound level meters are required on an urgent basis to cope with the rise in concerns to the growth in sound levels impact.

Geographical Scenario


The global sound level meters market trend in the U.S. is anticipated to witness decent growth throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that the U.S. has one of the largest industrial phase, aerospace & defense, and power generation activities, which require continuous monitoring of their sound levels. The U.S. is expected to dominate the overall North America sound level meters market during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

Due to the impact of high sound producing industries such as aerospace, automobiles, manufacturing, and the use of high volume speakers, the environmentalists and the governments across the world have grown highly concerned about the growth in noise levels in their respective countries. Also, keeping in mind the basic principle of instrumentation, which states what must be controlled, should be measured first. Hence, the concept of the use of sound level meters for controlling the degrading effect of noise on the environment is on a significant rise. The use of noise dosimeter, which provides the exposure level of a person to the surrounding noise and thus provides the area targeting the noise impact also fuels the market for exponential growth.

Small cell power amplifiers play a vital role in providing extensive indoor and outdoor noise & sound level measurement due to the fact that a lot of them are available in portable form. A mic attached to the measuring kit that detects the change in the pressure of the membrane of the mic can also be used to send email or information via Bluetooth if the sound levels are above the certified levels.

The major players operating in this market are 3M, Cirrus Research Plc, Brüel & Kjr, Norsonic, RION Co., Ltd., Svantek Inc., Testo SE & Co. KGaA, TES Electrical Electronic Corp., NTi Audio, and Casella Inc.. These companies focus on new product launches with improved specification, functionality, and durability as per different installation environments. For instance, companies such as 3M, Cirrus Research plc, and Bruel & Kjr, invest in sound level meters, launching new products, acquiring sound level companies, and upgrading their existing technology in the sound level market.
