Cochlear Implant Systems Market: Industry Trends & Business Opportunities by 2024

Cochlear Implant Systems Market was valued at over USD 1.4 billion in 2016, growing at 8.5% CAGR and it is forecasted to witness significant growth from 2017 to 2024.

Cochlear implant systems market will witness remarkable growth due to rising incidences of hearing loss across the globe. As per WHO, hearing loss is the fourth highest cause of disability worldwide, with an estimated annual cost of over 750 billion dollars. Moreover, according to NIDCD, approximately 15% of American adults (37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble in hearing.  Such stupendous rise in hearing disabilities will impact the industry growth.

Technological advancements such as microchip technology and wireless technology that improves device performance especially in noisy environments, will propel the industry growth. In 2016, Cochlear launched Kanso Sound Processor with a combined dual-microphone technology with an Auditory Scene Classifier that automatically adjusts the sound processing to different listening environments, offering a more effortless experience to the user.

Lack of awareness associated with hearing loss, its impact and management among policymakers and the general public will hamper the industry growth. As a result, hearing care fails to gain resource allocation and attention that it deserves. This reflects at the level of the community, where poor awareness generates numerous stigmas and myths surrounding the condition, frequently resulting in people not seeking attention for this health issue.

Bilateral cochlear implants offer speech perception and localization benefits to many children with severe to profound hearing loss. These implants provide better hearing in challenging environments, improved ability to localize sound, greater ease of listening and enhanced sound quality as compared to the conventional devices. Rising preference of implants in both ears and aforementioned advantages will boost the segment growth over the forecast period.
