Sound Level Meter Market Snapshot (2022-2032)

[250 Pages Report] The global sound level meter market size is anticipated to exhibit growth at a CAGR of 11.4% in the forecast period from 2022 to 2032. Increasing need to control auditory and non-auditory effects of noise pollution in both developed and developing countries is set to drive growth.

As per FMI, sales of sound level meters are expected to reach US$ 9.1 Bn in 2022 and be valued at US$ 16.3 Bn in 2032. Surging investments by regulatory bodies in new programs to maintain the quality of the environment are projected to augur well for the global market.

Sound Level Meter Market Estimated Base Year Value (2021) US$ 8.7 Billion
Sound Level Meter Market Expected Market Value (2022) US$ 9.1 Billion
Sound Level Meter Market Anticipated Forecast Value (2032) US$ 16.3 Billion
Sound Level Meter Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032) 11.4% CAGR

Sound level meter is referred to as a unique measuring instrument that is extensively used to evaluate sound or noise levels by measuring the sound pressure. It has a microphone and is commonly a hand-held instrument.

Demand for sound level meters is anticipated to grow at an exponential rate in the forthcoming years on the back of increasing noise pollution levels in urban areas. Sound level meters are equipped with a directional microphone that needs the device to be pointed in the direction of the source of noise unless ambient noise levels are being examined.

Further, sound level meters are capable of responding to fluctuations in air pressure, which is mainly caused by sound waves. These are sometimes called Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meters.

The need for sound level meters is expected to grow among workplace safety and industrial hygiene professionals as they utilize these instruments to ensure environmental conditions come under the recommended exposure limits in various locations. Companies are nowadays permanently installing sound level meters at job or work sites for consistent monitoring of sound levels.

Increasing Usage of Jet Planes and Automotive to Drive the Sound Level Meter Market

Increasing usage of sound level meters to monitor the acoustical performance of multiple structural elements of an office, a building, or air-conditioning and heat-ventilating systems in residential areas is expected to bolster the market. Governments of various countries are making the measurement of sound level a must to control the auditory and non-auditory effects of noise pollution in cities.

Moreover, ongoing development of new instruments by renowned companies featuring high precision is likely to accelerate the global sound level meter market growth in the upcoming decade. Surging usage of high-power speakers and woofers, as well as increasing number of jet planes and automotive is also projected to bode well for the global market.

Generation of Inaccurate Results with External Noises May Hinder the Sound Level Meter Market

Sound level meters are complex instruments that require skilled resources for conducting a thorough noise assessment. These are difficult to utilize in controlled environments, such as working at confined spaces and at heights.

Other sounds nearby, such as conversation with people, working operators, public announcement systems, and forklift rumbling can lead to the generation of inaccurate results. Apart from that, when sound meters are used in a particular area, there are chances of a minimum disruption in terms of operational activities. Driven by the aforementioned limitations, demand for sound level meters may decline in the assessment period.

Government Initiatives to Lower Noise Pollution to Propel the North America Sound Level Meter Market

Presence of well-established power generation and aerospace & defense industries in the U.S. and Canada is anticipated to expand the North America sound level meter market share in the evaluation period. The U.S. government is also expected to take certain initiatives to continuously monitor sound levels at workplaces in the country.

In addition to that, sound level meters are gaining impetus in North America stoked by their ability to provide elaborate information about the source of noise. Rapid development of state-of-the-art instruments with features, such as LAeq & LCpeak results, noise map development, OHS claims management, and compliance with state OHS regulations is also estimated to propel the regional market.

Growing Insurgency against Harmful Sound Devices to Push the Asia Pacific Sound Level Meter Market

Rising insurgency against non-eco-friendly sound devices backed by the negative influence of high decibel noise on the environment is expected to push the Asia Pacific sound level meter market size in the forecast period. As per a report published by the National Library of Medicine, during 2001-2011, growth of the urban population surged to 31.8% in India.

It further mentions that the Central Pollution Control Board put forward phase I of the Real Time National Ambient Noise Monitoring Network covering 35 areas in seven metro cities. It has included ambient noise under the environmental quality parameter. Nearly 160 areas spread over 25 cities will be established in phase II and phase III in 18 states. Thus, similar initiatives taken by the government are anticipated to positively impact the Asia Pacific market.
