Market Overview:

The global speech generating devices (SGD) market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period, 2018-2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to factors such as increasing prevalence of speech disorders, rising geriatric population, and technological advancements in SGD devices. Based on type, the global SGD market is segmented into fixed display devices and dynamic display devices. Fixed display devices are further classified into text-based and image-based displays. Dynamic display devices are further classified into touch screens and non-touch screens. In terms of application, the global SGD market is segmented into aphasia and non-aphasia patients. Aphasia patients are those who have difficulty speaking due to damage or injury to certain areas of their brain that control language skills; while non-aphasia patients do not suffer from any such damage or injury to their brain area controlling language skills). Geographically, the global SGD market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe Asia Pacific ,and Middle East & Africa . Some of the key players operating in this market include Advanced Bionics LLC., Boston Scientific Corporation., LivaNova PLC., Medtronic plc., Sonova Holding AG,, Starkey Hearing Technologies Inc.

Global Speech Generating Devices (SGD) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

SGDs are devices that allow people with communication disabilities to generate speech. They can be used to say anything the user desires, from a single word to a complete sentence. SGDs are important because they give people with communication disabilities the ability to communicate on their own terms.

Fixed Display Devices:

Fixed display devices are the traditional method of speech output. The growth factor in this market is due to technological advancements and low cost associated with it.

The usage of SGD includes a combination of technologies such as micro-display, sound waves, and electric circuits that produce speech. These devices are used by hearing impaired people as well as speakers who have difficulty in articulating words or phrases owing to some physical disability or disease such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.

Dynamic Display Devices:

Dynamic display devices are electronic visual displays that can change their content as per the requirement. They are used in SGD for two purposes, firstly to provide information to the user and secondly for generating speech. The most commonly used dynamic display device is Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). It’s a computer technology in which images or text is displayed by means of a series of switches that create an electric current within liquid crystals, causing them to change their orientation.

Application Insights:

The speech generating devices are used in aphasia treatment as it helps in comprehending the meaning of sentences. The application segment includes aphasia and non-aphasia patients. Aphasia is caused due to brain injury or damage, which results in language impairment. It is estimated that around 5 to 10% of people suffer from some level of aphasia after suffering an accident or stroke at any age group across the world.

Non-aphasia patients use SGD for communication and other daily activities as it helps them communicate effectively with others by reading lips and understanding speech sounds, thereby enabling them to perform daily activities independently.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global speech generating devices market in 2017. The presence of major players, technological advancements, and high adoption rate of advanced technologies are some factors responsible for its large share. Moreover, increasing demand to treat aphasia and other communication disorders is driving the growth in this region. For instance, according to an article published by Rehabilitation Engineering & Technology (RET), a total number of 6 million people suffer from aphasia in the U.S.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to rising awareness about mental health issues among individuals as well as increased government initiatives for improving access quality treatment services for patients suffering from speech disorders such as stuttering or dysarthria.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for SGDs from people with speech disabilities and communication disorders
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using SGDs among people with speech disabilities
  • Rising number of research and development activities for improving the features of SGDs
  • Proliferation of low-cost SGD devices in developing countries
  • increasing demand from aging population
