Partial Ossicular Replacement Prosthesis Market: Overview

  • In otology, an ossicular replacement prosthesis is an implantable device used for functional reconstruction of segments of the ossicles. The ossicles are three bones in the middle ear, which transmit sounds from the air to the cochlea i.e. fluid-filled labyrinth. Absence of these ossicles may result in moderate-to-severe hearing loss.
  • Ossicular replacement prostheses enable conduction of sound waves from the tympanic membrane to the inner ear. Total ossicular replacement prosthesis (TORP) and partial ossicular replacement prosthesis (PORP) are two common types of ossicular replacement prostheses.
  • The global partial ossicular replacement prosthesis market is projected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. The market is expected to be driven by increase in the prevalence of hearing disorders, rise in the demand for titanium-based implants for use in ossicular replacement, and increase in awareness about ossicular replacement procedures.

Key Drivers of Global Partial Ossicular Replacement Prosthesis Market

  • The global partial ossicular replacement prosthesis market is expected to be driven by rise in geriatric population with hearing issues, increase in the number of otology procedures in hospitals and ENT clinics, and growth in popularity of hearing implants
  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2012, 360 million people in the world (i.e. 5.3% of the world’s population) had disabling hearing loss. Out of these, 328 million were adults and 32 million were children. In 2019, the number rose to 466 million and is estimated to reach 900 million by 2050. The WHO also states that unaddressed hearing loss incurs an annual cost of US$ 750 Bn.
  • Rise in geriatric population and increase in the number of cochlear implantations are also estimated to augment the global partial ossicular replacement prosthesis market in the near future. Diabetes is one of the major risk factors for several serious ear conditions.
  • According to the WHO, in 2012, there were 164.5 million individuals aged 65 years or above with disabling hearing loss, which was 33% of the world’s population aged 65 years or above. The rate of prevalence of disabling hearing loss in geriatric population is the maximum in Asia Pacific, South Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

North America to Hold a Major Share of Global Partial Ossicular Replacement Prosthesis Market

  • North America is projected to account for a prominent share of the global partial ossicular replacement prosthesis market during the forecast period. Increase in awareness about hearing implants, ease of availability of hearing implants and hearing aids, and strong distribution network of hearing implant manufacturers in the U.S. are expected to drive the market in the region between 2019 and 2027. Under the NICD Epidemiology and Statistics Program, in 2015, nearly 28.8 million U.S. adults could benefit from using hearing aids.
  • According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, as of December 2012, 324,200 cochlear implants were implanted worldwide. In the U.S., nearly 58,000 devices were implanted in adults and 38,000 in children.
  • As per the National Institute of Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), in 2016, around 3.65 million hearing aid units were dispensed in the U.S.
