A noise dosimeter or dosemeter is a specialized sound level meter intended for measuring the noise exposure of a person integrated over a period of time. Noise dosimeter devices have to comply with health and safety regulations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard. They are specially designed for the situations with continuously varying noise levels or at places with continuous movements. They are also used in places such as confined areas or areas with high fire risks, wherein it is not safe to use full-sized sound level meters. These devices collect data for use in legal proceedings and assist in the development of engineering noise controls, among other industrial hygiene purposes. The noise dosimeters consist of hardware and software components and are typically programmed by a hearing conservationist, sound engineer, or audiologist. The sound sampling frequency and log information are among the settings that need to be considered while setting up noise dosimeters. The devices are used in the military and industrial sectors, among others, to monitor and measure the noise exposure.
Key Players Influencing the Market
- 3M Company
- BRüEL AND KJæR
- Extech Instruments (FLIR Systems)
- Norsonic AS
- Casella (IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC.)
- CESVA INSTRUMENTS SLU
- Cirrus Research plc
- LARSON DAVICS INC (MTS Systems Corporation)
Noise dosimeters determine the direct noise exposure to an employee, unlike sound level meters that are generally used to determine the noise in machine area. High precision in noise measuring is anticipated to drive the noise dosimeter market growth. Moreover, technological developments are leading to reduction in the sizes of noise dosimeters. The latest “badge” dosimeters, dBadge2, has a few advantages over traditional dosimeters. In addition, increasing awareness regarding the environmental concerns is attracting heavy investments and initiatives by the government for controlling noise pollution.
Key Findings of Study:
The global noise dosimeter market is segmented into five major regions—North America, Europe, APAC, the MEA, and SAM. In 2020, North America held the largest share of noise dosimeter market. The dominance of North America is attributed to the growing investments by the North American countries to improve industrial infrastructure, government initiatives toward reducing noise exposure levels, and huge percentage of population exposed to hazardous noise levels.
The COVID-19 crisis is affecting the industries worldwide. The global economy took the worst hit in 2020, and the similar scenario is likely to continue in 2021. The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has affected the growth rate of the noise dosimeter market. The outbreak has affected global supply chains and business revenues due to business shutdowns, border closing, and trade bans, thereby interrupting the marketing and sales activities of companies operating in the noise dosimeter market.
