·4 min read

DUBLIN, August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Hearing-Aid Devices Market, By Type (Hearing Aid Devices v/s Hearing Implants), By Type of Hearing Loss (Sensorineural v/s Conductive), By Product Type, By Technology Type, By Patient Type, By Distribution Channel, By Region, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Hearing-aid Devices Market stood at USD15.86 billion in value terms in 2020 and is forecast to grow at CAGR of 5.49% to reach USD21.61 billion by 2026.

Growing geriatric population coupled with an increasing incidence of hearing loss are expected to drive the market growth over the next few years.

Additionally, improving healthcare infrastructure, increasing overall healthcare expenditure across different countries around the globe are some of the factors supporting the growth of hearing-aid devices. Moreover, growing trend for customized implants is also a major factor that is driving the hearing-aid devices market. However, low penetration rate of hearing devices hinders growth of this market.

The Global Hearing-aid Devices Market is categorized by type, type of hearing loss, product type, technology type, patient type, distribution channel, and regional distribution. Based on distribution channel, the market is bifurcated into online and offline channels. Offline channel dominated the market in 2020 with a share of around 82.29% and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period also.

This can be ascribed to the fact that while selling through offline channels such as hospital pharmacies, OTC, among others several benefits and value added services are being provided. These include favorable health reimbursement for hearing implantation surgeries, and the increasing penetration of these implants in all sectors of health industry.

Also, selling hearing-aid devices through online channels is banned in few countries. By technology type, the digital devices segment has dominated the market with a share of 79.16% in 2020. This is due to the fact that the analog devices are on the verge of getting obsolete with a slower growth rate and less usage as compared to their digital counterparts.

Due to the onset of COVID-19 and imposition of complete lockdown to mitigate the coronavirus, there has been shutdown of many manufacturing units and disruption in the supply chain resulting in interrupted production and lesser supply of the implants all around the globe. Also, the economy has been adversely affected in many countries resulting in the hinderance to the growth of the hearing-aid devices device market. However, after relief from lockdown market is again going to pick up pace to grow significantly.

Some of the leading players in the market are Sonova Holding AG, Demant A/S, GN Store Nord A/S, Cochlear Limited, WS Audiology A/S and others.

The companies are focusing on extensive research and developments activities to stay competitive in the market. Other competitive strategies include formation of alliances and partnerships.
