There are dozens of hearing aid manufacturers, but only six account for more than 80 percent of the hearing aids shipped around the world. The “Big Six” are Sonova Group AG, GN ReSound, Sivantos, Starkey Hearing Technologies, William Demant and Widex. Several of the companies sell multiple brands of hearing aids, which most often utilize the same or similar platform technologies.
