siliconindia | | May 20194The global market for audiology services is expected to flourish over the forecast period of 2017-2027 due to increasing awareness about physical, social and psychological, needs of patients with hearing loss issues coupled with services adoption amongst the old age group. However, in India, hearing impairment remains a major social and health issue in India, like many other disabilities. With a population of more than a billion people and an estimated prevalence of hearing loss of somewhere between 5.9 per cent and 16.5 per cent, India has a significant number of hearing impaired individuals. Also, extending medical applications at audiology service centres, increasing number of qualified physicians for audiology services, expanding ageing demographics etc. are other co-factors contributing to the overall growth of the audiology services market.Various well-established audiology companies are seen to offer modern hearing healthcare services throughout the country. The modern hearing healthcare is influenced by rehabilitation models and offers hearing assessment and hearing rehabilitation with the use of modern technological devices such as hearing aids. These service providers primarily offer specialist audiological services, although various other professionals such as general medical practitioners, teachers of the deaf, health workers and community volunteers offer some basic services at primary and secondary levels. However, services in more specialized areas such as cochlear implantation, vestibular assessment and management, assessment and management of auditory processing disorders, and tinnitus rehabilitation are offered by few specialized providers.In our current edition, we have featured a list of such service providers who are helping a greater portion of the Indian population to afford these healthcare services.
