Tinnitus, commonly known as ringing in the ears, is a chronic condition where the patient experiences phantom auditory perceptions like hissing, buzzing, whistling or humming without any external source. It is a widespread problem affecting over 15% of adults globally. With rising stress levels and growing aging population prone to hearing loss, the number of tinnitus cases is on the rise. Devices like sound generators and hearing aids are used for tinnitus management. Cochlear implants are also beneficial for patients with severe to profound hearing loss accompanied by tinnitus.
Increasing aging population is one of the major drivers propelling the tinnitus management market growth. According to the United Nations, over 16% of the global population will be aged 65 years and above by 2030. This demographic is at a higher risk of developing age-related hearing loss and tinnitus. Additionally, investments in research & development activities are also fueling market expansion. Large players such as Sivantos and Widex are continuously investing in developing innovative devices for tinnitus relief.
