Increasing prevalence of hearing impairment cases, favourable regulatory scenarios, coupled with rising geriatric population prone to hearing loss are foremost factors driving the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, the presence of organizations that ensure effective care for hearing impaired people along with technological advancements and ongoing product innovations are certain aspects that will fuel hearing amplifiers industry growth.

Rising cases of hearing loss disorders will drive the business progression

The increasing market growth of the hearing amplifiers is largely supported by increasing prevalence of hearing loss disorders over the past few years and the trend is predicted to continue over the forecast timeframe. The hearing loss generally arises due to the fault in the mechanism through which the external sound is conducted to inner parts or due to problems in the hearing organ or hearing nerve. The cause of hearing loss may be congenital i.e. acquired at the time of birth or acquired causes i.e. developed at any age. As per the data published by Johns Hopkins researchers, the number of people living with the hearing loss is expected to double by 2060.

Increasing awareness and number of screenings for hearing loss ultimately increases the number of people diagnosed with hearing loss. The rapidly growing aging population, increasing neonatal hearing loss screening and exposure to noise pollution are some of the other contributing factors for increasing prevalence of hearing loss disorders. Hearing amplifiers significantly improves a person’s hearing ability and help them in better comprehension of speech. Hence, the increase in hearing loss disorder will boost the hearing amplifiers market growth over the forecast period.

However, the social stigma associated with the wearing of hearing amplifiers is one of the reasons due to which people are reluctant to wear hearing amplifiers and this may further deter the market growth.
