Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence of Hearing Loss Globally  - World Health Organization (WHO) stated that nearly 430 million individuals across the globe live with hearing disabilities, out of which, 34 million of them are children.

Age-related hearing loss or also known as Presbycusis, is a natural phenomenon that occurs as a person grows old. Hearing loss generally occurs due to the changes in the auditory nerve and inner ear that causes a person to be intolerant to loud sounds. Hence, higher demand for hearing aids emerges in the market on the back of growing geriatrics over the forecast period.

  • Rising Adoption of Hearables Hardware - As of 2020, the total number of hearables hardware installed was projected to reach nearly 250 million units which are further forecasted to hit approximately 950 units installed by the year 2024.
