Category-wise Insights

Why is Unilateral Implants projected to Witness Fastest Growth among Cochlear Implant Fitting Type?

Unilateral Implants segment is forecasted to grow at the highest CAGR of over 14.3% during 2022-2032. This growth is due to easier reimbursement of these type of devices, comparatively cheaper than bilateral implants, shorter duration of surgery, and low requirement of anaesthesia.

Adults and seniors who have had progressive severe hearing loss or have unilateral cochlear implantation (CI) found the test results to be beneficial, achieving a total economic benefit of US$ 275,000 and US$ 76,000, respectively. Health benefits were not included, but the effect on society was very positive for children and workers.

Similarly, despite the changes to practice patterns and growing healthcare unit costs, unilateral cochlear implants (UCIs) continue to be cost-effective, according to a study. UCIs are expected to increase annual implants in adults and children by 70% and spending by 28.6 Mn pounds over three years. Such research, as well as the cost-effectiveness of unilateral implantations, are expected to drive segment expansion during the forecast period.

Which segment of Cochlear Implant by End-Use is expected to Score Highest Growth in the Coming Years?

Adult segment commanded the largest revenue growing at a CAGR of 14.4% through the forecast period of 2022-2032. This is due to the fact that elderly is the largest affected part of the population.

What is the impact of Covid-19 on Cochlear Implant Market?

COVID-19 established limitations on audiology surgery and therapy services when it first appeared. The possibility of aerosolizing the virus while drilling in the mastoid cavity increased the danger of infection during neurotological (a subset of ENT) procedures. As a result, individuals were screened for COVID-19 prior to surgery, which caused procedures to be postponed. In addition, appointments for the rehabilitation phase following a cochlear implant operation were cancelled or postponed.

Surgical procedures are fewer today than in the early months of the conflict as a result of eased restrictions against coronaviruses in several countries. Although this contributed to the emergent risk of cochlear implant surgery and other procedures, it also led to thrive in brand-new study.

At Nottingham University Hospitals in July 2020, ENT doctors and researchers created a new personal protective equipment solution for cochlear implantation surgeries, which enabled the procedure to be completed more quickly.
