Growing concerns associated with hearing impairment are expected to propel the demand for hearing aids. Loss of hearing affects individuals across all age groups, from children to the elderly. Untreated hearing loss in children hampers social development, communication, and language development, thus lowering the quality of life and necessitating medical intervention, including hearing aids.

Meanwhile, the growing geriatric population also represents a large patient pool suffering from hearing conditions. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2050, approximately 2.5 billion individuals are expected to suffer from a certain level of hearing loss whereas 700 million people will need hearing rehabilitation. This indicates a substantial need for advanced devices to prevent avoidable hearing loss, such as auditory aids.

Lack of reimbursement may impede the adoption of hearing aids

Hefty expenses associated with the procurement and long-term use of hearing aids may hamper the hearing aids market share. Additionally, the lack of a favorable reimbursement scenario with a poor framework in low & middle-income countries is adding to the challenges faced by hearing aid manufacturers. Hence affordability issues and a dearth of solid reimbursement policies will affect market progression to a certain extent. Additionally, modern hearing aid equipment with novel modalities is more expensive.
