This will help boost the demand in the hearables market.
Aids for the hearing impaired
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 5% of the world’s population have hearing disabling impairment. The Consumer Technology Association Foundation awarded a grant to the Front Porch Center for Innovation and Wellbeing (FPCIW) to start an initiative called Hearables for All. This initiative will explore and evaluate hearable devices to help the hearing impaired to obtain these devices. The FPCIW approaches companies and works with them to develop products which are suitable for the hearing impaired and sell them at discounted prices. Companies can try to target this segment as well as it will help the hearables market to grow.
Companies and manufacturers of the hearables market focus on producing headsets that can be used by workers for noise cancellation as well as produce hearing aids to those in need. Even though the market for consumers who need hearing aids is small, it’s an extremely important segment and can even be taken up as a part of a CSR activity. This will not only help the needy ones but will also boost the reputation and goodwill of the companies thus helping the growth of the overall hearables market.
The biggest issue related to hearables is that they need to be changed very frequently and for long hours since the battery drains quickly. This problem is not faced with wired headphones. The price of hearables is also considerably higher than wired headsets which can inhibit the growth of the market.
