Growth in this market is due to a few major trends. The first is increasing aging population, which drives the demand for new hearing aid installations and consequently increases the installed base of devices requiring batteries. The second contributor is that manufacturers offering private label hearing aid batteries have been offering an increasing number of batteries per pack. This gives the consumer a more economical choice over the leading brands, and is a strategy that the rest of the industry may soon adopt.
A majority of batteries sold on the market are of the zinc-air type. Standard hearing aids require specialized batteries, typically zinc-air, in order to function. These batteries must be manually replaced by the user or audiologist. These batteries have a high energy density, achieved by using oxygen in the air as the cathode portion of the cell. This eliminates the necessity to package a cathode electrolyte in the cell, allowing for more effective current-generating volume for the same amount of space.
