The American Tinnitus Association finds the prevalence of tinnitus across 50 million people in the US, and such estimates are reflective of the global scenario. While tinnitus remains an underlying hearing loss problem for most of the cases, its severity in several cases compel people to seek medical attention. New devices are being developed to capture the demand for tinnitus management at a global scale.

Market researcher, Future Market Insights, foresees the global market for tinnitus management to touch a valuation of US$ 2.7 billion by the end of 2025. In the coming years, devices offered by companies such as Starkey Hearing Technologies, Sivantos, GN Hearing, Neuromod Devices, Puretone, Oticon, Widex and Neuromonics will be prominently sold across the globe. Some of these companies have upgraded their products and extended their product lines, while others are awaiting the impending approval for their patented technologies in tinnitus management.

Starkey Technologies to Stay Abreast with Market Trends
