It is undeniable that hearing aids are the most convenient clinical intervention for hearing deficiencies, subject to which it has procured maximum of the audiology devices industry share in 2016. However, it has been observed that recent technological advancements have led to an increasing deployment of alternative hearing devices. Growing awareness and utilization of cochlear implantation (CI) can be majorly attributed to this fundamental aspect, driven by its cost-effective outcome-based solutions.

It is imperative to mention here that the utilization rate of cochlear implantation in major part of the world is higher for children than geriatric populace. The trend is synonymous for the U.S. audiology devices market where the utilization rate among children having appropriate audiological profile is nearly 50%. Whereas it is less than 5% for the adult profile. When being surveyed on a much larger base of adults than children who suffer from profound hearing loss, it has been observed that cochlear implantation surgeries in the country cover 60% adults and 40% children. Despite the fact that this technology has received FDA approval long back, experts believe dearth of proper awareness campaigns is somewhat hindering its full-fledged optimization in audiology devices market.

Nonetheless, the ongoing research activities is certain to open new doors of opportunities for audiology devices market, through which unconventional hearing device manufacturers seem to garner profits. Add to it, growing geriatric populace vulnerable to hearing deficits is bound to create massive demand for product innovation in the marketplace. In this regard, experts claim, implementation of stringent regulatory norms related to hearing devices will have a significant impact on the product development. In terms of profitability potential, Global Market Insights, Inc. forecasts audiology devices industry size to surpass USD 10 billion by 2024.
