Mergers and Acquisitions are among the Leading Strategies of Key Players for Strengthening their Product Portfolio and Increasing their Geographical Footprint

Key players in the hearing protection devices market are focused on mergers and acquisitions with local players to strengthen their product portfolio as well as their distribution network channel. The strategy also is used to expand their footprint in emerging markets. For instance, in April 2015, 3M acquired Capital Safety to expand its presence in the hearing protection devices market.

Similarly, in July 2018, Amplifon acquired hearing care retailer Gaes Group to gain a foothold in Spain. The acquired company has over 500 stores in Spain, as well as a number of stores in Portugal and Latin American countries such as Argentina, Chile, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, and Mexico.

Increasingly Stringent Government Regulations to boost the Hearing Protection Devices Market

Increasing number of stringent safety regulations related to occupational safety at workplaces with high level of noise exposure in several industrial processes is expected to drive the sales of hearing protection devices during the forecast period. Several safety standard regulations have been implemented in various developed countries to ensure the safety of workers in industries where there is the risk of exposure to high levels of noise.

The Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 and its amendment passed in 2002 in Australia/New Zealand requires employers and employees to take steps to ensure a safe and healthy workplace, which creates the need for the use of personal protective devices such as hearing protection devices. The OSHA Hearing Conservation Amendment (OSHA 1983) enforces the use of hearing protection devices in industrial workplaces in the U.S. The Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Regulation 2003, which is accredited by the South African National Standard (SANS), applies to all employers, self-employed, and employees working in an atmosphere exposed to noise levels that exceed 85db.

Demand for Next-generation Hearing Protection Devices in the Military Sectors to Drive the Market

Over the past few years, joint military exercises have increased substantially across the globe due to an increase in the number of international defense agreements between various nations. This has led to a significant increase in the sales of hearing protection devices targeting the defense sector. These exercises have gained greater prominence in Europe and North America.

Moreover, developing economies in APAC, such as India, are witnessing an increase in military spending. For instance, India increased its defense budget by 11% in 2015, as compared to that in 2014. On May 18, 2015, Dynamic Ear Company announced a strategic agreement with the U.K. Ministry of Defense to supply tactical in-ear protection plugs to the U.K. armed forces. Moreover, 3M supplied tactical communication and protective system devices to the U.S military in early 2015. Companies are targeting the military sector to widen their HPD customer base.

Lack of Awareness to Hinder the Growth of the Hearing Protection Devices Market

Majority of the people working in mining, construction, and manufacturing sectors come from low socio-economic backgrounds. Most of these workers are unaware about the safety benefits of hearing protection devices. They are either not trained properly or are not aware about the risks associated with excessive exposure to high noise levels and hence, lack sufficient motivation to use these hearing protection devices.

This low motivation can be attributed to the discomfort caused by these devices, their improper fitting, improper communication while wearing such devices, and other associated secondary effects such as ear infection or excessive sweating. Thus, lack of awareness is expected to hinder the growth of the hearing protection devices market, especially in the developing nations.

Definition

Hearing protectors are devices used to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. These devices are recommended when a user is exposed to noise levels of over 80 dB for 8 hours. These devices find major applications in the military, construction, generator, compressor rooms, and other similar noise-affected industries. Hearing protection devices are available in four types: earmuffs, earplugs, hearing bands, and uniform attenuation earplugs.
