Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Protective Communication Equipment Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global protective communication equipment market: INVISIO, Phonak, Sensear, 3M, and Honeywell.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aegisound, CavCom, Elacin Hearing Protection, Hellberg Safety, Hunter Electronic, Savox Communications, Silenta, Silynx Communications, Sonetics, and Variphone International.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Protective communication products with VOX include software technologies that provide superior voice activity detection in high noise environments with minimal delay and reject sound signals that can falsely trigger VOX algorithms. Since voice detection can be affected in high noise environments, VOX software permits activation only when the user is talking. VOX-based protective communication products constitute a growing trend in the market and are likely to post a higher CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period compared with other product categories.”
According to the report, strong demand from defense sector will be a key driver for market growth. The defense industry is a key end-user of protective communication products. Members of the Army, Navy, and the Air Force are exposed to various continuous noise and impulse noise. There are inherent differences in how different sources of noise impact the hearing of a person. For instance, the noise from small arms and larger ordnance result in mechanical and physical damage to the structures of the ear. Whereas, continuous noise exposure causes long-term cellular changes and subsequently results in hearing loss.
Further, the report states that in high-noise environments, workers face the challenge of communicating clearly while wearing hearing protection products to prevent hearing damage. Users who need to engage in both face-to-face and two-way radio communication demand products with balanced protection communication solutions. Achieving this is a key challenge for vendors since speech intelligibility is a concern with most products in the market.
