The hearing aid service industry is growing at a fast pace and the growth is not going to slow down anytime soon. There is an increasing need for licensed HAS but there is less number of licensed professionals. Many retailers such as Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Costco and Miracle-Ear are opening retail stores nationwide. With the generated vacancies, there are probably 5 jobs for every licensed hearing aid specialist.
Along with vacancies, advancement in technology is also playing a vital role. Over the past few decades, manufacturers have been successful in designing smaller effective hearing aids. This made it easier for more number of people to choose hearing aids. Nowadays, virtually invisible hearing aids are present. So one may be using it but nobody will know about them. With reduced cost, small design and high quality, the demand for hearing aids continue to rise.
