Global ABR Screening Systems Market: Overview

ABR screening system is an auditory brainstem response (ABR) test. It is an automated test for hearing and brain functioning. This test is performed by applying wires to the skin around the ear. ABR can be used in evaluation and examination of hearing integrity and neurologic normalcy in infants, kids, and young children. The device is also used for evaluation of neurologic integrity and hearing in patients who are comatose, impaired due to stroke, unresponsive, have Meniere’s disease (a condition of inner ear that can lead to dizzy spells/vertigo and hearing loss), and acoustic neuroma (tumor on the hearing nerve). This test involves attaching electrodes to the head to record electrical activity from the auditory nerve and other parts of the brain. The test results show how one’s cochlea and brain pathways for hearing are working. Electrodes which are connected to top head skin, also connected to computer and record brain wave activity in response to sounds a patient hear through earphones.

Global ABR Screening Systems Market: Key Trends

Rise in prevalence of significant hearing loss among the global population and increase in noise pollution levels are the major factors boosting the growth of the global ABR screening systems market. A report published by WHO in May 2018 stated that around 466 million people have disabling hearing loss across the world, and of these 34 million are children. A study published in the Journal of American Medicine in 2010 concluded that 19.5% of adolescents aged 12 to 19 in the U.S. suffered from hearing loss due to increase in number of cases attributed to ear bud use. Moreover, increase in the number of cases of vertigo, impairment, coma patients, and newborn babies with hearing loss are the major drivers of the market. According to CDC report, in 2009, 1.4 per 1,000 babies screened had hearing loss. However, lack of health care facilities in developing regions and higher ABR screening systems test equipment cost are expected to restrain the global ABR screening systems market.
