Growing incidences of otic disorders will boost the market growth. According to WHO, it is anticipated that by 2050 over 900 million people will suffer from hearing loss. Hearing loss occurs due to several reasons such as complications at the time of birth, genetic mutations, chronic ear infections, excessive exposure to noise and ageing. Therefore, to overcome difficulties arising from hearing loss, people have started preferring audiology devices such as cochlear implants that significantly improve person’s hearing ability. Above mentioned factors should escalate the audiology devices industry growth in the coming years.

Positive regulatory scenario will boost audiology devices market over the forecast timeframe. Regulatory authorities such as FDA and Europe Commission have framed favourable regulations for OTC hearing devices that will make them easily available to consumers through retail outlets without intervention of audiologists. Thus, regulations imposed for increasing the accessibility of audiology devices will positively impact otological devices market growth in forthcoming years. However, concerns regarding aesthetic appeal may hinder the global market growth to certain extent.

By Product

BAHA/BAHS segment of audiology devices is anticipated to witness around 6.5% growth during the analysis time frame. BAHA implanting hearing device system is an innovative technology that has been approved by FDA to treat hearing loss. The technology combines sound processors with small titanium fixture that is implanted behind the ear. BAHA audiology devices are mostly preferred by people suffering from chronic otitis media (a group of inflammatory diseases associated with middle ear), cholesteatoma, acoustic neuroma and Meniere’s disease that will drive segmental growth.

Diagnostic devices segment was valued for more than USD 460 million in 2018 and it will grow substantially in coming years. Currently available diagnostic devices such as tympanometers, otoscopes and audiometer provide accurate diagnosis along with qualitative analysis pertaining to degree of hearing loss. Additionally, diagnosing devices provide images that assist surgeons during surgical procedures increasing the surgery success rate. Moreover, growing awareness regarding early otological disease diagnosis will foster demand for diagnostic devices thereby, enhancing the segmental growth.

Audiology Devices Industry Background

Audiology devices industry can be traced back to 1898 that initiated with the introduction of electrical hearing aid. Miller Reese Hutchison invented portable hearing aid that was successfully accepted to manage hearing loss. In early 1920s, first audiometer was developed. Even though, technology was advanced enough to design audiometer, the term “audiology” was coined in 1946.  After several years, with advancements in technology, in 1996 modern hearing aids were developed. These technologically advanced hearing aids had commendable features that helped it to gain popularity. Lately, the U.S. FDA approved use of smaller hearing aids that are efficient and diffuses sound vibrations to the ear utilizing precise laser beam. Traditional digital and analog sound-transmission technology has been replaced by the recently developed advanced technology integrated in hearing aids. Currently, audiology devices industry is in the developing phase and will witness numerous growth opportunities with advent of technology.
