Audiology is expected to grow faster than average as hearing loss is strongly associated with aging. Rapid growth in the aged population because of increased life expectancy, more number of people aged 60 and above will cause the number of persons with hearing impairment to increase markedly.

Medical advances are improving the survival rate of premature infants, trauma and stroke victims, who then need assessment and possible treatment. Many states require newborns to be screened for hearing loss and early intervention services.
