NEW YORK, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue.

Audiological Devices - Global Market Trends

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164304/Audiological-Devices---Global-Market-Trends.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=prnewswire

The market for audiological devices is driven by demand for superior hearing instruments that are less visible and incorporate advanced technologies. An aging worldwide population is expected to translate into favorable growth for hearing instruments and audiological services.

Hearing aids are specialized products, with sales influenced by factors such as rising life expectancy and growing consumer base. A major factor impacting growth is the trend towards miniaturization that has led to the development of hybrid analog/digital devices, which are more advanced than their contemporaries. Demand for audiological devices is likely to increase with addition of more features to current devices. However, lack of reimbursement for all types of hearing aids, with the exception of basic models, remains a stifling issue.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Audiological Devices: Global Market Trends" by BizAcumen LLC. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
