Global Hearing-Aid Devices Market, By Device Type (Prescription-Based v/s Over-the-Counter), By Type (Hearing-Aid Devices v/s Hearing Implants), By Hearing-Aid-Devices Style (Behind-the-ear-aids, In-the-ear-aids, In-the-canal-aids, On-the-ear-aids), By Type of Hearing Loss (Sensorineural v/s Conductive), By Product Type (Wireless v/s Wired), By Technology Type (Digital v/s Analog), By Patient Type (Adult v/s Pediatric), By Distribution Channel ( Offline v/s Online), By Region, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2026

Global hearing-aid devices market stood at USD15.86 billion in value terms in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.59% during the forecast period. Impressive growth in the market can be ascribed to the growing geriatric population which is susceptible to various kinds of hearing impairments and auditory nerve damage. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division, the number of persons aged 65 years or above were 702.9 million in 2019. This number is expected to grow at 120% and reach 1548.9 million by 2050. The changing lifestyle pattern especially among the youth has led to an increase in the use of headphones or earphones. Headphones and earphones are being used for watching movies, listening to music, talking on calls, among others. Additionally, people have also started using Bluetooth devices to talk while driving or doing any other task. This has significantly increased hearing problems among the youth thereby driving the growth of hearing aid-devices market. Furthermore, growing prevalence of noise pollution worldwide is expected to increase the demand for hearing aid-devices. Prolonged exposure to noise can lead to irreversible hearing losses among the population coupled with constant ringing in the ears, which is also known as tinnitus. This in turn, has significantly increased the demand for hearing aid-devices, thereby spurring the market growth through 2026.
Global hearing-aid devices market is categorized by device type, type of hearing loss, product type, technology type, patient type, distribution channel, region, and company.In terms of device type, the global hearing-aid devices market can be split into prescription-based and over the counter.

The prescription-based segment dominated the overall hearing-aid devices market with a share of around 98.41% in 2020 and is expected to continue its dominance through 2026. This can be ascribed to the fact that in most parts of the world almost everywhere hearing-aid devices are being sold through prescription. There are only few countries where over-the-counter hearing aid-devices are being sold. However, in the coming years when over-the-counter hearing-aid devices will be available in market by 2022, the over-the-counter hearing aid-devices will witness significant growth. Over-the-counter hearing-aids are expected to enter the market full-fledged by 2022. At present over-the-counter hearing aids are only available in countries like Japan, China, and South Korea but it is expected that after the formulation of guidelines on over-the-counter hearing-aids by the FDA, the over-the-counter hearing-aids will be available across the globe.
The global hearing aid-devices market is well established and quite consolidated with few major players holding a significant market share.Companies like Demant A/S, WS Audiology A/S, Amplifon SpA, among others are holding a significant share in the market.

Also, there are companies like Cochlear Limited which are market leaders when it comes to hearing implants.Demant A/S holds the position of market leader on account of its wide product portfolio comprising of both hearing-aid devices and hearing implants.

However, it is expected that in the coming years there will be many regional players entering the market space especially after the launch of guidelines and policies for over-the-counter hearing-aids by the FDA and their expected commercialization by 2022.The companies operating in the market are following strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, new product launches, getting into collaborations, among others to stay competitive and having an edge over other players in the market.

For instance, in February 2021, GN Store Nord A/S launched ReSound Key which is a hearing-aid line up which provides a value addition to its existing hearing-aid devices technology, globally.
