Hearing aids are used for the treatment of profound hearing loss. Disabling hearing loss refers to hearing loss greater than 40 decibels (dB) in the better hearing ear in adults and a hearing loss greater than 30 dB in the better hearing ear in children. Hearing loss is one of the six leading global diseases. Approximately one-third of people over 65 years of age are affected by hearing loss. The prevalence in this age group is greatest in South Asia, Asia Pacific, and sub-Saharan Africa. According to the U.S. National Center of Health Statistics (NCHS), 12 out of every 1,000 Americans suffering from hearing loss belong to the age group of below 18 years. An increasing prevalence of hearing loss among the population is likely to boost the demand for hearing aids globally and further fuel the growth of the global hearing aids market. Moreover, rapidly increasing usage rates of digital hearing aid technology and patient awareness levels are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period (2016 - 2024). The global hearing aids market is mainly driven by factors such as gradual increase in disposable income, increase in GDP, and increase in global geriatric population. However, factors such as poor reimbursement policies and lack of infrastructure will hinder the growth of the global hearing aids market in the coming eight years.
