The hearing device market is limited by the difficulty that it takes to sell these devices. In many regions, the right to sell hearing aids is limited to audiologists and hearing instrument specialists. Audiologists require several years of schooling and, in most places, hearing instrument specialists are required to take a two year course in hearing loss diagnosis and hearing aid fitting before they are certified to sell. These requirements limit the number and growth rate of points of sale, in turn limiting the overall growth potential of the hearing device market. Any measures to broaden distribution channels in a way that do not alienate audiologists and independent hearing instrument specialists will enhance hearing aid sales.
One major trend within the hearing device market is the constant focus on product innovation. Technological innovations in hearing aid circuitry improve sound quality and immediate post-fit satisfaction, as well as provide new features. Technological innovations, which are first delivered in a manufacturer’s flagship or premium device, will trickle down through the rest of the product line, driving the growth of premium models as well lower-tier devices. With these innovations, wearers are now able to talk on their mobile phones and have optimal use of personal music players and remote microphones using a small streamer module. These factors motivate hearing aid purchases and drive growth in the overall hearing aid market.

Hearing Devices Market Share Insights
The United States hearing device market is largely controlled by five main companies: Phonak, Starkey, Cochlear, Oticon and Sivantos. Brands belonging to these five companies hold more than 60% share of the overall market. These companies are also very active with ongoing acquisitions to further secure their leading positions. In addition to the manufacturing consolidation, emerging competitors continue to gain market share through niche segments like bone-anchored hearing aids, cochlear implants and middle ear implants. Product innovation is the focus of nearly all competitors, even those in the battery market. Success will be based on who can capture market share based on not only price, but also functionality. Examples of this include recent introductions of smartphone pairing capabilities and app connectivity.
In the European hearing device market, Sonova has the overall lead. Sonova established this strong position based on offering higher priced premium-quality hearing aids. Phonak operates under the Sonova holding group, which also owns Unitron in addition to other newly acquired companies such as Advanced Bionics in the cochlear implant market, and Lyric, the manufacturer of the invisible ITE hearing aid. Sonova’s market share has been steadily increasing over the last few years, and the company is active in pursuing acquisitions to add to its growing hearing device portfolio.
