Demand for Receiver-in-the-Ear Hearing Aids (RITE) Is Projected to Grow In Excess of US$ 8 Bn by 2026

A recent study published by Fact.MR shows a marked rise in the adoption of hearing aids, which is projected to grow in excess of US$ 8 Bn by 2026, as individuals are evincing high interest towards high-tech devices to treat hearing loss. Availability of a wide range of hearing aids further offers choices to select the right audiological device, which is resonating well with individuals suffering from poor hearing conditions.

Receiver-in-the-ear is the most preferred hearing aid, and is expected to witness a CAGR of around 5.1% during the forecast period (2020-2026), on account of its lightweight and easy accessibility. However, hearing aids may not be effective among individuals with severe hearing loss, which is likely to fuel the adoption rate of cochlear implants during the forecast period.

A key opinion leader at Fact.MR opines,“ Technological advancements will be a crucial determinant in driving the revenue of the audiological devices market. Rechargeable audiological devices powered by lithium-ion batteries significantly help reduce costs and would rapidly replace conventional audio devices.”
