Often, hearables are mentioned as a subcategory of wearables. Additionally, they are sometimes referred to as "smart advisors" or "smart headphones." The news agency Reuters listed voice-driven virtual assistants in its "Journalism media and technology predictions 2015" report as a major area of innovation. This includes apps such as Siri, Amazon Echo, or Me-OS on Vinci headphones that recognize voices. In 2006, Valencell published the first definition of a wearable ear-worn audiovisual platform for cloud-based communications, entertainment, guiding, and health monitoring. The development of hearables is now making strides toward feature unification, size reduction, and application coverage.

These miniature in-ear buds are primarily intended for mobile communication, real-time information services, activity tracking, and different monitoring applications concentrating on the wearer's health conditions and physical performance. They can be controlled by touch, movement, thought, voice, or any combination of the aforementioned control mechanisms. Most "Hearables" that have been observed to date are Bluetooth gadgets that employ phones or computers as their main computing devices. The dual-core CPU, local storage, Wi-Fi, and 3G connectivity of the Vinci smart headphones, which were introduced in 2016, enable customers to use them without a phone.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic dealt a serious hit to the manufacturing sector. Lockdowns caused a large number of production facilities to go out of business in many different nations, which had an immediate impact on Industrial wearable sales. Sales prospects in the market were further dimmed by stagnant production and manufacturing procedures. The COVID-19 pandemic is currently sweeping the globe and leaving a path of destruction in its wake. Sales of consumer electronics and the future of the sector have been greatly impacted by this. The pandemic would have a huge negative psychological and economic impact on consumer attitudes.

Market Growth Factors

The popularity of online shopping among consumers is growing

During the coming years, the online sales channel will expand rapidly. E-commerce websites have been attracting consumers to buy these products because of their usability, durability, comfort, connectivity, quick price comparison, competitive pricing, and time-saving earphones and headphone range. Increasing disposable income increased Internet accessibility, and the growing popularity of smartphones has led to an increase in online shopping across the globe. The development of the internet and the possibility to shop online has drastically changed how consumers make decisions. When it comes to the goods they wish to buy, consumers today are more knowledgeable than ever and avid researchers.

The demand for ease and convenience among consumers is on the rise

Customers who are tech-savvy are rapidly adopting portable headphones with innovative features like noise-canceling headphones and echo reduction. Growing comfort, availability, and high-fidelity audio made possible by wireless technology are among the factors that have led to increased use. The integration of Bluetooth, NFC, and IR networking in wireless earbuds is anticipated to significantly impact market revenues. The advantages of enhanced smart device communication, accessibility, and a greater connectivity range would encourage the usage of Bluetooth in wireless technology. A sizeable market share was achieved by the earphone product category. Because earbud earphones offer better convenience, superior audio quality, and genuine wireless functionality, the market for Bluetooth headphones has seen a tremendous expansion.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Costly and limited battery life of the industrial hearable

The high price of professional hearables is one of the factors limiting the growth of the hearables market. Although there is great demand for hearables in many industries, it is being constrained by the fact that they are quite expensive and comprise several sophisticated technologies. The fact that hearables require a lot more gear, such as batteries and an antenna or receiver, means that their production costs will be significantly higher. It raises the total cost of the hearables, making them prohibitively expensive for several consumers.

Industrial Hearables Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Type Outlook

On the basis of Type, the Industrial Hearables Market is divided into In Ear and Over Ear. The in ear segment witnessed a significant revenue share in the industrial hearable market in 2021. It is because they are now the most lightweight and widely used type of headset. Due to its simplicity of usage for those who aren't home, semi-pro, or professional studio artists or engineers, this model of headphones is one of the fastest growing in the market.

Technology Outlook

Based on the Technology, the Industrial Hearables Market is segmented into DECT, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Others. The Bluetooth segment procured the largest revenue share in the industrial hearable market in 2021. Bluetooth headphones connect to someone's phone using a specific kind of wireless network. Bluetooth headsets utilize technology created particularly to do away with the need for the unattractive and awkward wires that were traditionally required to link a headset to a telephone, allowing users to speak and listen through an earpiece while keeping their hands free.

End User Outlook

On the basis of End User, Industrial Hearables Market is classified into Construction, Mining, Manufacturing, and Others. The construction segment witnessed a substantial revenue share in the industrial hearable market in 2021. For construction workers who are not wearing the required hearing protection for road workers, the degree of noise exposure might cause hearing impairment or loss. Additionally, the bulk of workers in the road construction sector must constantly converse with one another to prevent accidents. Employees can safeguard their hearing while having natural face-to-face conversations with other employees in the workspace without shouting and communicating effectively on two-way radios or Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Application Outlook

By Application, the Industrial Hearables Market is bifurcated into Industrial wireless audio/voice applications and Industrial voice cancellation application. The industrial wireless audio/voice segment garnered the highest revenue share in the industrial hearable market in 2021. The ability to quickly establish wireless networks and transfer data to remote locations eliminates the need for costly cable infrastructures, which is a significant advantage. Wireless technologies also provide a real-time connection for applications like SCADA and RTU connectivity, high bandwidth for video transmission utilized for remote security, and a cheaper total cost of ownership, in addition to location flexibility.
