Report Description

Global Audiology Devices Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 6% over the forecast period (2021-2027).
The electronic devices that are used by audiologists for the diagnosis and treatment of hearing impairment or loss of hearing are called audiology devices. These devices are also widely used for monitoring or studying hearing.

With rapid technological advancement and rising awareness among the consumers regarding the presence of advanced audiology devices, many of the industry players are focused on launching new products in the market due to which the audiology devices market is witnessing an uptick all over the globe. For example, in October 2021, Audibel, the health tech company launched its new artificial intelligence hearing aids called the Arc AI. The AI algorithm can automatically adjust the volume of the hearing aid to the user’s environment. Furthermore, the growing number of audiologists and supportive government regulatory framework are some of the other prominent factors propelling the growth of this market globally.

Furthermore, the growing prevalence of deafness coupled with the rising geriatric population is another factor contributing to the growth of the global audiology devices market. For instance, according to the United Nations, In 2019, 13.2% of the worldwide population was aged 60 years or above. Further, it is anticipated that nearly 21.4% of the total worldwide population will be aged 60 years or over by 2050. In view of these facts, there is an increase in the number of people who are more prone to hearing impairment. As a result, there is an increase in the adoption of various audiology devices amongst the older population augmenting the growth of the audiology devices market globally.
