Pune, India, August 2019, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has Published a Cooked Research Report on the Global Cochlear Implants Market.

Market Overview

The Global Cochlear Implants Market, as per a report by Market Research Future (MRFR) is touted to register a CAGR of 9.86%, surpassing a valuation of USD 3,203.8 million during the forecast period (2017-2023).

Cochlear implants can be referred to as medical devices that are inserted surgically in order to offer a sense of sound to a person suffering from hearing loss. The cochlear implants market has witnessed a tectonic surge over the past few years due to the rising number of suffering from hearing impairment. As per the CDC, around 900 million people are predicted to suffer from hearing impairment by the end of 2025. Growth in the geriatric population is also considered a positive factor in encouraging the cochlear implants market. As the aged population is more prone to hearing loss, the demand for such devices is higher in this segment.

Medical device manufacturers are extensively investing in R&D activities, which has led to the development of advanced cochlear implants. Rising use of next-generation metals, ceramics, polymers, and biomaterials in cochlear implants has further led to the enhancement of surgical outcomes, thereby accelerating the market growth across the globe. An increasing number of clinical trials, a rising number of FDA approvals, and improving reimbursement policies are favoring the market growth to a large extent.

Technological advancements made in cochlear implants in order to make these devices user-friendly and more efficient are likely to trigger its demand across the globe. Cochlear Ltd., for instance, launched the world’s thinnest full-length perimodiolar electrode in September 2016 for their cochlear implant. The sleek design helps to protect the delicate structures of the inner ear.

On the contrary, the cost of cochlear implants remains a hurdle to the growth of the market. The cost of such devices can rise to high amounts, thus making it unaffordable to the low-income and middle-class population. Such factors are predicted to deter the market growth in the foreseeable future.
