Hearing Device Supply Chain Solutions by RRD | Solution Brief

Create a supply chain competitive advantage

Companies in the hearing device space are operating in a dynamic and highly competitive environment. Advances in telehealth and hearing device technology have the potential to reshape the industry, and the global hearing aids market is forecast to reach $17.68 billion by 2029 (source: Fortune Business Insights). 

As companies adapt to these changes and battle for market share, they face a range of supply chain challenges.

  • Personalization: Consumer expectations for personalized devices include more color options and sound personalization
  • Customization: Devices may need to be modified to meet different geographical requirements that include branding, language, and regulatory approvals
  • Speed-to-market: Getting products to market in a timely fashion is vital as both new and established competitors battle to win market share of the over-the-counter (OTC) device market
  • Complexity: Increased personalization and customization demands have increased supply chain complexity as suppliers multiply and supply chains become difficult to manage
