The global hearing aids market size is expected to exhibit strong growth by reaching USD 17.68 billion by 2029. Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled “Hearing Aids Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Product (Hearing Devices (Behind-the-Ear (BTE), In the Ear (ITE), Receiver in the Canal (RIC), Completely in the Canal (CIC), Others (Invisible in the Canal, and others)) and Hearing Implants (Cochlear Implants and Bone Anchored Implants)), By Patient Type (Adults and Pediatrics) By Distribution Channel (Over the Counter (OTC), Medical Channel/ Hospital Pharmacies, Private Practice/ Retail Pharmacies), and Regional Forecasts, 2022-2029” observes that the market size in 2021 was USD 9.68 billion and is expected to touch USD 10.23 billion in 2022, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.1% during 2022-2029. The rising prevalence of hearing loss and technological advancements in hearing aid devices may propel market development.

Phonak and Advanced Bionics Received a USFDA Approval to Boost Brand Awareness

Advanced Bionics and Phonak received USFDA approval for its Marvel hearing technology in December 2020. The technology offers the first-of-its-kind sound processors designed specifically for children. This development may enable Advanced Bionics to increase its brand awareness globally.

Raw Material Shortage and Reduced Implantation Procedures during COVID-19 to Impede Market Growth

This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic because of the lack of raw materials. The halt on transport activities during the pandemic led to severe raw material shortages. Furthermore, the restrictions imposed on manufacturing may disrupt the supply chain. Moreover, declining implantation procedures are expected to hinder the adoption of the device. However, rising healthcare and medical expenditures and the adoption of reduced capacities, part-time shifts, and automated machinery may enable manufacturers to balance costs.
