North American Earplugs Market size is projected to cross USD 440 million by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research. High disposable incomes coupled with shifting consumer preferences toward earplugs for music & sleeping applications will stimulate the market growth.

North America held around one-third share in the global earplugs industry in 2020, which is attributed to the significant presence of major earplug manufacturers coupled with rapidly changing lifestyles over the years. The region has a matured music industry, which positively impacts the overall industry size. Manufacturers are focusing on technologically advanced earplugs to protect musicians from distortion and improve sound quality. For instance, Universal Music Earplugs offer an in-built music filter, which provides optimal sound protection without the loss of clarity.

Moreover, sleeping with earplugs can significantly improve the quality of sleep as it can reduce or even stop surrounding sounds such as noise from a snoring partner or nearby freeway. In addition, earplugs for sleeping applications not only improve the quality of sleep but eventually reduce the risk of many diseases, such as high blood pressure and depression, thus positively influencing the market share.

The lack of awareness regarding noise protection equipment to limit the risk of hearing loss is one of the factors restraining the demand for earplugs in North America. For instance, the U.S reported that only 10% of the population wear hearing protection during musical events such as sporting events, rock concerts, and discos.

The travel segment is likely to expand at 4.4% CAGR over the forecast period. Robust demand for earplugs while traveling to reduce high-level noise from jet engines, the crowd on subways, or the loud music at concerts followed by the need to protect ears from endless noise, constant pressure changes, and unnecessary pain will augment the market demand.

The consumer segment is expected to have a moderate growth rate during the forecast period owing to its limited use. Consumers use earplugs while operating lawnmowers and during DIY activities such as drilling, landscaping & renovating. Increasing DIY activities across the region is likely to drive the demand for earplugs in the consumer segment. The segment has registered about 13% market share in 2020.
