Report Outlook

The North America Hearing AID market was valued at USD 8.58 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period.

A hearing aid is an electronic device used for patients with mild to moderate hearing loss. It contains a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. It runs on traditional batteries and is also a rechargeable battery. Hearing aids are adjustable devices; if one cannot hear the sound at a specific Hz, the device is adjusted at a specific volume. The life of any hearing aid device is 6 to 7 years.

These devices are primarily used in the geriatric population and are commonly associated with ear infections resulting from the use of earbuds, headphones, and similar accessories. The unnecessary or excessive utilization of ear cleaning equipment and drops can cause harm to the inner ear, due to increased inflammation. These factors collectively contribute to the rising Prevalence of hearing impairment, driving the growing adoption of such devices.

Furthermore, a government study reveals that millions of Americans are experiencing some degree of hearing loss. This significant Prevalence of hearing impairment has contributed to a notable increase in the use of hearing aid devices in North America. As the study underscores the widespread impact of hearing loss on a substantial portion of the population, individuals seeking solutions for improved hearing have turned to hearing aid devices as a viable and effective means of addressing their auditory challenges. The growing awareness of hearing issues and the availability of advanced hearing aid technologies further propel the adoption of these devices and the North American hearing aid market.

  • For instance, according to the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), Approximately 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. Only 1 in 5 people would benefit from a hearing aid.

However, manufacturers of hearing aids are enhancing patient experiences with cutting-edge features and technology, which is anticipated to drive market expansion in the upcoming years. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communicable Disorders estimates that 15% of patients in the United States who are 18 years of age or older have hearing loss, which indicates the rising need for hearing aid devices and contributes to the demand for the North America Hearing AID market

Early deafness detection and the provision of hearing aids to individuals are priorities for local government hearing service offices and general healthcare service organizations in both developed and developing economies. The rapid expansion of healthcare infrastructure in these countries is a result of the trend toward privatization of the healthcare sector in developing economies. Public health awareness campaigns and education campaigns are driving up demand for these devices and related diagnostic services. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major effect on the healthcare industry.

Numerous elective treatments were delayed or halted to optimize resource allocation more efficiently. The Hearing Industries Association (HIA) reports an anticipated 20% decline in hearing aid sales in the United States for 2020, largely attributed to a decrease in audiology consultations. Consequently, major manufacturers experienced a significant drop in product sales. However, with the gradual normalization of the COVID-19 scenario, other medical sectors and the hearing aid industry are witnessing growth, contributing to the recovery of revenue in the North American hearing aid industry.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Prevalence of the senior population

The increasing Prevalence of hearing loss in patients is boosting the market share of the North American hearing aid market. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 40 million Americans are facing auditory loss problems, and it is continuously about to grow over the forecast period.

Moreover, the growing adult population is supposed to experience hearing loss; hence, increasing demand for innovative hearing devices shows an increase in the market share. The Labor Force Survey estimates that each year in Great Britain, around 11,000 prevalent cases of hearing impairments brought on or worsened by work occur.

A considerable number of individuals exposed to high decibel levels from sources like music, devices, work-related tasks, or recreational activities may only be aware of the damage once they undergo hearing loss. With the aging population in the United States and Canada, there is a growing prevalence of individuals becoming deaf or experiencing hearing impairment. This trend, coupled with an increasing rate of hearing loss in the younger population, is driving the demand for hearing aids in the market.
