Significant increase in the prevalence of earwax impaction along with growing awareness are the major factors contributing to the expansion of the earwax removal market. According to the report published by WHO in 2021, the average prevalence of earwax impaction is between 7% and 35% in different age groups. Also, with the increase in the geriatric population across the globe, the earwax removal market is expected to grow as impaction of earwax is very common in the geriatric population. Additionally, it is more prevalent in people using hearing aids and earplugs.

Rising infection rates and people facing problems like itchy and irritated ears have raised awareness about removing earwax. Adoption of correct methods for earwax removal and availability of various earwax removal tools and drops are positively impacting the growth of the market. Also, market players are introducing innovative products for effective and inexpensive decerumen. For example, Safkan Health introduced Otoset, an earwax removal device. This device looks like a headset and breaks down earwax using an irrigation method by delivering irrigation solution through disposable tips.

The micro-suction segment is estimated to dominate the market throughout the forecast period. Micro-aspiration is the most commonly adopted procedure for earwax removal and can provide immediate wax removal when an urgent clinical need arises. the adoption of micro-suction devices in ENT clinics has increased due to the advantage of the supra-auricular syringe. The main advantage is that it does not damage the mucous membrane, which can be a risk factor during ear syringing, and it is gentle on the ears. Also, the device is usually equipped with a camera that gives the audiologist a clear view of the inner parts of the ear and the amount of earwax.

Consumer-based, the geriatric segment is witnessing a lucrative growth owing to the growing number of geriatric populations. According to data released by the United Nations in 2020, the global geriatric population is expected to surpass 1.5 billion by 2050. Hearing loss is prevalent among older people and as a result, they are the top consumers of hearing aids, which increases the risk of earwax impaction. This is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Based on distribution channels, retail pharmacies dominated the market owing to the growing number and expansion of retail pharmacies. Additionally, increasing adoption of automation and digitalization is positively impacting the growth of the segment. For example, in May 2018, McKesson Co. entered into an agreement with Discount Drug Mart, to provide dispensing automation platforms that will help optimize prescription processing.
