US Market Report for Hearing Aid Batteries 2017 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “US
Market Report for Hearing Aid Batteries 2017 – MedCore”
to their offering.

Technological improvements in hearing aid circuitry improve sound
quality, immediate post-fit satisfaction and provide new features. These
features also increase the power demand from the battery and, therefore,
are also driving sales slightly. In addition to increased power supply,
these features encourage hearing aid purchases and, therefore, help
drive market growth for hearing aid batteries. Furthermore, hearing aid
battery manufacturers are packaging their products in a way that helps
users change the batteries more easily.

There has also been an increase in the proportion of private-label
batteries which are sold at a lower price point, further facilitating
the decrease in ASPs. There has also been an increase in retail
channels, such as Costco, Wal-Mart and the internet. Price per
individual battery pack is expected to remain relatively constant until
the end of the forecast period, but because of bulk sales and the
increasing number of batteries included in a package, the average price
per individual battery is expected to decline slightly.

Growth in this market is due to a few major trends. The first is an
increasing aging population, which drives the demand for new hearing aid
installations and, consequently, increases the installed base of devices
requiring batteries. The second contributor is that manufacturers
offering private-label hearing aid batteries have been offering an
increasing number of batteries per pack. This gives the consumer a more
economical choice over the leading brands, and is a strategy that the
rest of the industry may soon adopt.
