Emergence of highly advanced hearing aids offers significant growth opportunities to market players. Leading companies are concentrating on innovations via strategic partnerships, alliances, mergers, and acquisitions in order to expand presence in the global hearing aids market.

The number of cases of hearing impairment is increasing in developing and undeveloped countries, mostly because primary and secondary level diagnoses are not made promptly. There is limited accessibility to healthcare facilities and other therapies, and ear machines are not readily available or affordable. Insufficient resource allocation, incorrect & ineffective national planning to treat hearing impairment, and lack of experienced specialists are likely to positively influence market demand.

Key Findings of Market Report

  • Based on product type, the behind-the-ear (BTE) segment held the leading market share in 2021. The trend is expected to continue from 2022 to 2031. This can be ascribed to advantages of using hearing aids behind the ear. Due to their bigger case, behind-the-ear hearing aids are simpler to use for those with poor dexterity and hand-eye coordination than compact hearing aids when replacing batteries and cleaning the hearing aid.
  • In terms of age, the adult segment held the largest market share in 2021. This can be attributed to high incidence of hearing impairment in both underdeveloped and developing countries. The cost burden associated with hearing loss is disproportionately greater than the resources that can be used to fix it. Incidence of hearing impairment is much higher in adults than children, based on the World Health Organization (2022).
  • Based on distribution channel, the hospitals & clinics segment accounted for a sizable portion of the global market in 2021. The segment is anticipated to driven by more prolonged hospital stays.
