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 highest volume. According
to Hearing Loss Association of American, in 2013, around 20% of the population of the U.S.—
approximately 48 million people—reported some level of hearing loss. At an older age of around 65
years, the proportion of hearing loss is 1:3. Around 60% of individuals who experience hearing loss are
either part of the workforce or are in an educational settings. In the U.S., 2-3 in every 1,000 children
are born with hearing loss, naturally, by either one or both the ears, and around 15% of teenagers have
some level of hearing loss.
Market Dynamics
A study conducted by Noise and Health organization in Accura, Ghana, a total of 101 mill workers
were examined and found that 23.7% were identified with the hearing loss symptoms. According to the
Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, there are of
approximately 74% of hearing loss cases in the U.S. due to manufacturing. Furthermore, approximately
12 million workers in the country are involved in the manufacturing sector. Bureau of Labor Statistics’
(BLS) explains that hearing loss is one of the factor of any individual illness among the manufacturing
workers. According to Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, in the U.S., in 2012, hearing loss
accounted for 12% or 18, 500 cases of all recordable cases. At the state level, Ohio Survey of
Occupational Injuries and Illnesses data for 2012 recorded a total number hearing loss factors was in
private sector industries itself be around 5,000 cases. Out of 5000 cases, hearing loss cases reported in
Ohio’s manufacturing industries were around 800 to 900 days.

An estimated one-third of the all impaired hearing cases are related to noise exposure. Occupational
noise exposure is the one of the most common causes of noise induced hearing loss in the U.S. In 2013,
around 10% i.e. around 22 million people of age group 20 to 69 years in the U.S. suffered from
permanent hearing loss as they were exposed to high or loud noise at construction and/or respective
work environment. Specifically, increasing number of workers at construction or manufacturing site
and increasing adoption of hearing control devices in developed regions to boost growth of the Global
Hearing Protection Devices Market.
Key companies covered as a part of this study include 3M, Starkey Laboratories India Pvt. Ltd,
Honeywell International Inc, Hellberg Safety Ab, Amplifon., Dynamic Ear Company, Centurion Safety
Products Ltd., Sonomax Technologies Inc, Siemens Healthcare GmbH, ADCO Hearing Products Inc,
and Elvex Corporation and Moldex-Metric Inc.
In Asia Pacific region, awareness regarding hearing protection is less. However, due to increasing
spending for the improvement of health and safety standards in economies such as India and China, the
hearing protection devices market in this region is expected to witness significant growth in the near
future. The workers in agriculture, mining, construction, manufacturing, utilities, transportation, and
the military areas get exposed to loud sound. This sound exposure can be minimized by wearing the
hearing protection devices, which allow permissible level of decibel without causing any adverse
effects to the user. This is further expected to drive growth of the Global Hearing Protection Devices
