Key Market Trends

Bone Anchored Hearing Aids are Projected to Grow at a Healthy Rate

The bone-anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) is a surgically implanted device designed to help people with hearing loss and bypass particular problems by sending sound vibration directly to the inner ear through the skull bone. These work best for people who have at least one inner ear that functions normally. The prevalence of hearing loss among the older population is growing and leading to the high demand for adult bone-anchored hearing aids. Furthermore, growing awareness and advancements in technology in the diagnosis of hearing loss in infants and children is expected to boost the child/pediatric bone conduction hearing aids segment growth.

The growth in healthcare infrastructure around the world and rising spending on healthcare are fuelling the adaptation of new technologies which is boosting the market growth.

The new innovations in bone conduction such as ease of use, noise reduction and increase in durability changing the phase of bone conduction hearing aids and further fuelling the market growth in the near future.
