Global Diagnostic Hearing Devices Market 2018-2022
About Diagnostic Hearing Devices
Diagnostic hearing devices are audiology devices used to assist ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialists, hearing instrument specialists, and audiologists to evaluate individuals' hearing capabilities by conducting physical and clinical diagnosis and hearing screening. Clinical and physical diagnosis detect hearing loss. However, hearing screening is performed to identify potential hearing loss. Clinical diagnosis involves the use of devices such as diagnostic audiometers and tympanometers. Screening audiometers are occupational audiometers, and physical diagnosis is performed using otoscope devices.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global diagnostic hearing devices market to grow at a CAGR of 5.93% during the period 2018-2022.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Diagnostic Hearing Devices Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global diagnostic hearing devices market: GAES MEDICA, INVENTIS, Natus Medical, and William Demant.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Audidata, Benson Medical Instruments, Frye Electronics, Happerdberger otopront, Hedera Biomedics, KARL STORZ, Medtronic, Olympus Corporation, Optomic, Orlvision, and RION.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing focus on digital diagnostic hearing devices. Digital diagnostic hearing devices and digital hearing aids are being widely accepted by many individuals. However, these devices are still undergoing innovations and technological advances. In general, digital diagnostic hearing devices are equipped with advanced technology. Digitizing hearing diagnostic tests helps in the reduction of cost by the use of information and communications technology (ICT) solutions. These ICT solutions are safe, cheap, and more productive. For instance, Kiversal has developed Ns 10, a product designed to perform and manage automated hearing tests based on ICT solutions. The analog audiometers had to be taken to the manufacturers for calibration every 12-24 months. However, the ICT digital audiometers have an in-built self-calibration system.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing prevalence of hearing disorders. The prevalence of hearing disorders is increasing worldwide. Hearing disorders can also be a disabling hearing loss, which refers to hearing impairment to sounds greater than 40 decibels (dB) in the better-hearing ear in adults and greater than 30 dB in the better-hearing ear in children. Hearing disorders can be heredity or caused due to congenital disability, infectious disease, chronic ear infection, exposure to excessive noise, and old age. Various factors are responsible for hearing impairment including infections in childhood such as measles, mumps, and meningitis; exposure to excessive or prolonged noise; and chronic otitis media.
