The Global Hearing Aids Market to 2024 - Behind the Ear (BTE) Expected to Grow Fastest, Owing to Better Connectivity, High Efficiency and Easy Usage

DUBLIN, March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Hearing Aids Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019-2024)" report has been added to's offering.

The global hearing aids market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 4.5% during the forecast period, 2019-2024.

The propelling factors for the growth of the global hearing aids market include the rising prevalence of hearing loss, technological advancements in hearing aids, the rise in global geriatric population and growing trend for customized implants.

With the increasing ageing population, there has been a rising prevalence of hearing loss. In the United States, hearing loss is more likely to be caused, owing to genetic defects. In developing countries, preventable medical issues are often the major factors for causing hearing loss, especially infections, such as rubella or syphilis, which can lead to congenital hearing loss. In addition, pregnancy complications also lead to hearing loss in infants. Thus, the increasing incidences of hearing disorders and hearing loss problems among the population have led to the sales of a large number of hearing devices in the market.

Growing noise pollution throughout the world has also a significant impact on the hearing abilities of people. Noise emission in heavy duty industries, as well as public carnivals, is expected to damage the hearing capacity of adults, thereby resulting in the increase in the demand for hearing aids devices.

There are various opportunities, like the incorporation of lithium-ion batteries in hearing aids, which help in propelling this market's growth. Furthermore, technological developments related to the products that combine cochlear implants, and hearing aid technology to overcome the high-frequency hearing loss in patients, are also found creating new opportunities for the players in the global hearing aids market.
