Market Overview

Otoplasty Market Size is Expected to grow at higher CAGR 6.7% Over the Forecast Period.

Otoplasty refers to the surgical and non-surgical procedures for correcting the ear deformities and defects, such as absent external ear and congenital conditions and trauma. The technique involves alteration of the defects by creating an external ear that is in natural proportions, appearance, and contour, which is usually achieved by reshaping the cartilaginous support framework of the pinna. Globally, the rising prevalence of congenital ear deformities, such as Treacher Collin’s syndrome and hemifacial macrosomia, is boosting the market growth. As per the CDC, 1 in about 50,000 people is suffering from Treacher Collins Syndrome. Some of the factors driving the market include the increasing awareness regarding ear deformities, rising disposable income, growing acceptance of plastic and aesthetic surgeries, and surging presence of advanced treatment options, such as tubings and malleable splints. 

Moreover, the otoplasty formation of the distorted ear can cause a number of problems, including acute pain due to overcorrection of deformed features, abnormal scar tissue, and reappear of ear protrusion, which can impede the market growth to some extent. However, the growing availability of advanced products, such as malleable and adjustable splints and tubing for adjusting the shape and size of the ear, is driving the market growth.

Market Dynamics

Rising Cases of External Ear Trauma

Globally, the rising cases of external ear trauma, including puncture, blasts, and damages incurred by blunt objects is surging the market growth. Blast injury is the most prevalent injury, and around 2% to 32% of the people suffer from it across the globe. Out of which, about 80% of the people are likely to have a ruptured tympanic membrane.   

Better Screening for Deformities at Birth Will Uplift the Overall Market

As per the CDC, in the U.S., around about 1 in every 2,000–10,000 babies suffer from microtia.  For the record, microtia happens during the first few weeks of pregnancy and can vary from being barely noticeable to being a major problem in the ear formation. Additionally, the WHO is initiating several infant hearing screening programs to attend to the growing prevalence of ear deformation across the globe. Currently, a number of different approaches are available for identifying hearing loss in neonates and infants, including Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) testing and Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR). In develop and underdeveloped countries, the development of new approaches and the rising number of cost-effective screening methods are driving the market growth. 

Rising Prevalence of Treacher Collin’s Syndrome and Hemifacial Microsomia

Treacher’s syndrome, also known as mandibulofacial dysostosis, is a hereditary condition that affects 1 in every 50,000 people. This can be attributed to the mutation in the TCOF1, POLR1C, or POLR1D gene and is responsible for causing about 95% of the cases. Hemifacial microsomia is the second most prevalent congenital disorder after cleft lip and palate. The market is majorly driven by the rising predominance of the innate ear disfigurement, rising per capita income, increasing cases of trauma, rising availability of advanced products, and surging screening & operating techniques across the globe.

The region is backed with the presence of major contributing countries, such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The U.S. is grabbing the highest shares in the North America otoplasty market due to the rising healthcare spending, favorable reimbursement policies, rising awareness regarding early hearing detection & intervention (EHDI) programs, and technological advancements. As per the CDC, around 1.6% of newborns are diagnosed with hearing loss in one or both ears annually, which is further adding fuel to the market growth.  

Europe is second in the otoplasty market, and Belgium is the major contributor to the market. In Belgium, the government and insurance companies are soft on the disfigurement followed by trauma or disease and are offering reimbursement for the treatment of such conditions. In addition to this, they are reimbursing the amount spent on the correction of prominent ears and surgery on eyelids.

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing otoplasty market. The region is backed with the presence of China and India, where the government is arduously working to raise awareness regarding hearing defects and is heavily investing in R&D activities for performing extensive research and clinical trials for the same. The major contributors to the otoplasty market include Japan, China, Australia, Singapore, and New Zealand. Moreover, rising awareness regarding hearing defects, increasing expenditure power, and the growing medical tourism due to low-cost treatment costs are boosting the market growth.
