Long Range Acoustic Devices Market Size, Share and COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Short Range Acoustic Devices and Long Range Acoustic Devices), By Directionality (Omnidirectional models and Directional models), By Service Provider (Government Sector, Commercial Sector, and Others) and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI107002 | Status : Ongoing



An acoustic hailing device (AHD) is a specialized loudspeaker that emits high-power sound waves for communicating at a distance. AHDs vary in design, output, and usability. The rise in government spending in defense, public safety, and law enforcement applications is the major factor driving the growth of the acoustic hailing device market.

  • The police force is extensively using long range acoustic devices as a powerful and versatile instrument of communication at tactical standoffs, active shooter events, demonstrations, and in case of natural disasters.

  • LRAD systems can produce maximum continuous sound pressure levels that vary, depending on model size, from 137 dBA to 162 dBA measured 3 feet from the device. For context, this is much louder than electronic dance music concerts, or a commercial jet taking off at 300 feet

  • Leading companies in the acoustic hailing devices market are investing significant capital in R&D to develop superior products.

In terms of region, the global acoustic hailing devices market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.

Impact of COVID-19 on the LRAD Market

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 has brought a considerable downswing in the market due to a shrinking economy, a significant reduction in infrastructure spending, and postponement of construction activities. However, the gradual opening of economies, regain in consumer confidence, resilient outlook of the construction industry, and expected recovery in vehicle production are key factors that are likely to translate an impressive bounce-back in the demand for long range acoustic devices from 2021 onwards.

Key Insights

The report will cover the following key insights:

  • Perspective on the market performance

  • Recent industry trends and developments

  • Competitive landscape and strategies of key players

  • Potential and niche segments and regions exhibiting promising growth covered

Analysis by Long Range Acoustic Devices

A major factor driving the market’s growth is due to the demand for portable AHDs. Portable AHDs are handheld devices that can be fitted in vehicles. Portable AHDs are usually self-contained and lightweight, and this makes them easy to be transported from one place to another. Portable AHDs are widely used by police forces, fire brigades, rescue workers, and in applications such as bird control and civil defense operations. 

Regional Analysis

  • Asia Pacific will showcase significant growth in the global acoustic hailing devices market during the forecast period. The increase in use of acoustic hailing devices activities in this region for animal threats and shore sighting and forest operation demands the requirement.

  • North America region is also driven towards growth with increasing demand due to security purpose and rising government investments in LRAD.

Key Players Covered

  • The report will include the profiles of key players such Argo-A Security, IMLCORP, LRAD Corporation, Summit Engineering Corporation, Ultra Electronics Holdings, CRD Protection AB, PRAMACOM-HT Ltd and Genasys, Inc.
