Cochlear Implants Market Share Value Size Trends Growth

ENTERPRISE, Nevada, Nov. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cochlear Implants Market Size Growth Rate:

According to the research report published by DataM Intelligence, the global cochlear implants market size was valued at USD 1.4 billion in 2021, it is projected to reach USD 12.23 billion by 2029. The cochlear implant is a medical device that helps people with hearing loss caused by a damaged cochlea better localize sound or speech, even in a noisy environment. The cochlea, located inside the ear and resembles a snail’s shell, is a delicate structure surrounded by minute projections that resemble hairs and bend in response to sound vibrations to enable hearing. Hearing loss occurs when the cochlea is harmed by acoustic tumors or prolonged noise.

Cochlear Implants Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.71% over the forecast period 2022-2029

The growing prevalence of hearing loss and the increased adoption and technological advancements. The government and various organizations undertake several initiatives to support research in the cochlear implantation field, and the rising geriatric population is the factor to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

Cochlear Implants Market Drivers:

  • Rising research for innovative cochlear implants, increased investment in research and development activities, and the continued technological advancement in cochlear implants is expected to drive market growth. For instance, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center has created a novel electrode array using SMP that is specialized to fit a patient’s cochlea perfectly. When heated to a particular temperature, the implant is prefabricated to self-coil.
  • Moreover, at room temperature, the electrode is straight and positioned close to the auditory nerve cells they stimulate as the device travels through the cochlear spiral after warming to body temperature. The SMP materials maximize stimulation precision while minimizing trauma. Thus, from the above factors, the market is expected to drive in the forecast period.

Cochlear Implants Market Restraints:

  • However, the high cost of cochlear implants, the scarcity of audiologists, the short lifespan of cochlear implants, and post-operative complications like auditory nerve damage, vertigo, balance and others are the factors the market is expected to hamper the market in the forecast period.

Cochlear Implants Market Opportunities

  • Lifelong hearing is made possible by the availability of customized equipment and advancements in cochlear implants. By connecting the sound processor to intelligent apps, these cutting-edge devices enable users to adjust the volume from their smartphones. Cochlear implants now feature improved voice and sound quality due to technological advancements.
  • For instance, the first sound system for cochlear implants designed specifically for iPhones, iPods, and iPads has received FDA approval and is called the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor. The behind-the-ear cochlear implant is also the smallest and lightest one currently available. Thus, the above factors are expected to create opportunities for the cochlear implant market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on the global 

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has had a greater impact on cochlear implant rehabilitation. CI aids in reducing the psychological effects, enhances the quality of life, and makes it easier to mainstream these kids into society. Any break in postimplant habilitation is likely to impact the results and psychologically affect the kids and their parents. The widespread nature of COVID-19 has called for increased caution and modifications to every aspect of postimplant management. Congenital severe-to-profound SNHL parents experience severe psychological effects, particularly when hearing healthcare services are interrupted.
  • Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a negative psychological impact on people all over the world. The pandemic has had a significant impact on people with cochlear implants who underwent AVT following the activation of their speech processor. The government instituted a shutdown, lockdown, and restrictions on the movement of public transportation and established the necessary social distance norms to stop the spread of COVID-19. The CI recipients, however, have received less than excellent care due to this period’s limited access to trained healthcare facilities.
  • Although everyone must wear a face mask during this pandemic, doing so has made it harder for children with CI to communicate. The cochlear implant teams chose to provide telemedicine, teleaudiology, and tele AVT to these kids after considering these factors. Thus, from the above factors, the market got affected and is expected to improve in the forecast period.

Recent Developments in the Industry:

  1. In January 3, 2022, TODOC announced that their artificial cochlear implant ‘SULLIVAN’ would be introduced at the CES 2022, which will be held in Las Vegas on January 5, 2022 (local time), after being named one of the ‘Top 10 Korean Products of CES 2022.
  2. In June 14, 2022, Demant declared that it had acquired 80% of ShengWang’s stock, gaining full control of China’s largest network of hearing aid clinics. This is the follow-up to the 20% minority investment announced on March 4, 2022, and it is a crucial strategic move in Demant’s ongoing development as a hearing healthcare provider.

Cochlear Implants Market Segmentation Analysis:

As per the research analysis, the global cochlear implant market is segmented by type into unilateral implantation, bilateral implantation. By end user, the market is segmented into pediatrics and adults.

  1. Based on the type, unilateral implantation is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of YY% during the forecast period (2022-2029). The clinical diagnostics segment accounted for the largest market share of YY% of the global cochlear implants market in 2021. Single-sided deafness (SSD) is more frequently observed in children. Genetics, ear injuries, and infections are the most frequent causes of single-sided deafness. So, most people prefer unilateral cochlear implants. Moreover, congenital hearing loss is also a diagnosis given to new-borns with one or more hearing losses. Because of this, hearing loss will encourage the use of cochlear implants. Additionally, launching new innovative products is expected to drive the market in the forecast period. For instance, in January 2022, Cochlear Limited received U.S. FDA approval for its Cochlear Nucleus implants designed to manage single-sided deafness or unilateral hearing loss (UHL).
  2. Based on the end user, the adults segment accounted for the largest market share of around YY% in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period (2022-2029). The segment is benefited because of the advancement of adult cochlear implants, increasing prevalence of adults with hearing problems worldwide are the factors to drive the market segment in the forecast period.
