A wide range of assistive listening devices (ALDs) act as hearing aids to help individuals improve the communication of individuals with hearing loss. They are amplification equipment to improve the accessibility to speech signals, where the affected use these in conjunction with hearing aids, or in place of hearing aids. Advances in electronics used in assistive listening devices have led to them being equipped with modern broadcasting systems, thereby propelling the evolution of the assistive listening devices market.
The scope of technological advances in the assistive listening devices market is wide: some of the devices can be used in access to music and enhance other recreational pursuits. Broadly, the market is earning revenues from the following broad product types: FM sound system, hardwire devices, infra-red sound system, alert/alarm system, telephone listening devices, and induction loop systems. Growing focus on increasing the effectiveness of ALDs has nudged medical device makers to find encouraging prospects in the assistive listening devices market.
The study strives to offer a scrutiny of all key growth dynamics, end users trends, technological advances, and top revenue-generating regions in the assistive listening devices market. The assessments offers a closer snapshot of how different consumer segments drive the pace of product research and developments, and the offers detailed market estimations of these. It further offers an uncluttered view of new avenues by providing projections of revenues and volumes, so that new entrants can tailored their consolidation strategies.
Worldwide, there has been perceptible rise in the adult population who are hard of hearing. ALDs play crucial role in not only enhancing their ability to access speech, but also offering them relief from daily grind by facilitating access to recreation options.
Advent of devices with wireless technology and advanced digital signal processing mechanism has shaped the contours of innovations in the assistive listening devices market.
Students deaf and hard of hearing in developed countries hope to increasingly benefit from growing number of people in educational audiology career or clinical audiologists in private practice. They form a key element of the chain between the regional government and educations institutes where ALDs are provided. Recent months of post COVID era have seen the trend gathering steam in the assistive listening devices market.
On the other hand, the competitive dynamics has been shaped by the focus of players on the development of digital wireless technologies. Prominent medical device makers are leveraging electronics miniaturization and human engineering. Focus on reaching interfaces to personal hearing aids might offer competitive edge over others. The advent of directional microphones is a case in point.
Some of the promising players in the assistive listening devices market are Cochlear Limited, MED-EL Corporation, William Demant Holdings A/S, Widex Co. Ltd., Starkey Laboratories, Sonova (AG), and Siemens.
The opportunities in the global assistive listening devices market are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa. Of these, North America and European nations have seen rapid pace of new technology developments, keeping these regions replete with lucrative avenues. Further, increased focus of governments to increase the access of ALDs in public areas such as theaters has expanded the revenue potential of these regional markets. A case in point is access to programs such as Access to Work or Disabled Student Allowance. Another example is growing participation of organizations in the U.S. such as Hearing Handicap Inventory for the Elderly (HHIE) in evaluation the clinical and cost effectiveness of ALDs is expanding the canvas for manufacturers in the assistive listening devices market to tap into new potential.
