Report Description


Global Sound Level Meters Market: Overview

A sound level meters is a measuring instrument used to assess noise or sound levels by measuring sound pressure. It is commonly a hand-held instrument with a microphone. The sound level meters uses a directional microphone, which requires the instrument be pointed in the direction of the noise source unless ambient noise levels are being monitored. Sound level meters respond to fluctuations in air pressure caused by sound waves and are sometime referred to as Sound Pressure Level (SPL) meters. With a sound level meters, industrial hygiene and workplace safety professionals can measure sound levels in multiple locations to ensure environmental conditions fall within recommended exposure limits. Some sound level meters devices can be permanently installed for continuous monitoring of sound levels at a work or job site. Sound level meters are used for a large range of applications to determine objective measures of sounds, outdoors as well as indoors. The sound level meters is essential in noise monitoring in urban areas. Need to control the non-auditory and auditory effects of noise pollution, high investment by government to maintain the environment quality, rising concerns to the growing sound level impacts are some of the primary factors driving the growth of the global sound level meters market. One of the important limitation of sound level meters is that huge costs are incurred in the development of sound level meters. This is one of the factors hampering the growth of sound level meters market. Efforts are being taken by many companies to upgrade their research and development activities to introduce innovations in this field.

Global Sound Level Meters Market: Key Segments

The global sound level meters market is segmented on the basis of type, application and region. On the basis of type, the sound level meters market is segmented into type 1 / class 1 sound level meters and type 2 / class 2 sound level meters. Type 1 is also called as precision sound level meters whereas Type 2 is general purpose sound level meter. The distinguishing factor among the two types of meters is the tolerance allowed on frequency response and directional response, which are controlled by the microphone. For assessing noise in basic industrial, commercial, educational, recreational or residential applications, a type 2 / class 2 sound level meter is usually used. For precision-grade assessments often made in a laboratory, a type 1 / class 1 sound level meter is used. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into transportation, R&D, environmental protection, factories, enterprises, building acoustics, environmental noise assessment, smart phone applications, investigation of room acoustics, sound propagation modelling and others. Sound level meters are used to evaluate the acoustical performance of structural elements of a building or office or its heating-ventilating and air-conditioning system.

In the region wise study, the global sound level meters market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America which comprises the US and Canada captured significant market share followed by Europe and Asia Pacific in 2017. Asia Pacific showed the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to the emerging economies. Emerging economies represents huge potential for the sound level meter industry with the rising energy utility and industrial factories in the country.
