Why is Demand for Text-to-Speech Devices Rising Rapidly?

Other segments are expected to grow slowly, while demand for speech generating text-to-speech devices is expected to increase 2.5X over the forecast period.

A text-to-speech system can improve people with visual impairments and learning disorders in a variety of ways. People with visual impairments or reading disabilities can use text-to-speech software to listen to written words on a computer or mobile device.

Individuals with dyslexia or reading disabilities have a difficult time decoding text. The letters may not make sense to them and thus remain unknown to them. Text-to-speech technology can help such people by converting their texts into an auditory format and making them easier to understand.

Ever-increasing demand for digitization and comfort is increasing the selection of text-to-speech systems in regular use. With verbal commands and audio instructions in text-to-speech devices, users are no longer required to read lengthy user guides or manuals.

Latest innovations in gadgets are anticipated to extend the inclusion of text-to-speech software into smart devices. Growing adoption of top brands of text-to-speech devices and rising sales of text-to-speech devices are factors set to drive market growth over the next ten years.

Why are Speech Generating Devices with Static Display Highly Sought-after in the Market?

People with communication, speech or cognitive incapacities can utilize speech generating devices with static display. These devices with overlays include words, letters or pictures to convey the message to individuals.

Because there are various devices for different types of speech, many overlays can be used to expand vocabulary options.

Emergence of static display devices, the government spending on education for differently-abled students and the increasing demand for speech generating devices with static display are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19

The speech generating devices (SGDs) market has been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the spread of COVID-19, physicians and patients became extremely worried about their own safety, raising doubts about the reuse of medical devices. This had a negative impact on the demand for speech generating devices.

COVID-19 is an incomparable global public health emergency that affected the sales of picture communicator devices, and the long-term effects are projected to impact the market.

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads globally, medical device companies are finding it more difficult to make informed decisions about their products, supply networks, and regulatory obligations.

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, medical and healthcare departments are working at full capacity to treat patients. To capitalize on the looming opportunities, stakeholders in the global SGDs market landscape are expected to innovate, invest in research, and develop new solutions. However, with advancements in technologies and products being used in healthcare, the speech generating devices market size in 2021 is projected to be better.

Our ongoing research amplifies the research framework to ensure the inclusion of underlying COVID-19 issues and potential paths forward.
