Want to know more about our mission?
Amplifon provides personalized solutions and unique customer care to hearing-impaired people. We offer a wide range of services to look after all hearing needs, from diagnosing hearing difficulties, to fitting, servicing and maintaining hearing aids.
Being able to hear is essential at any age as it allows people to connect with the world around them and to enjoy a full personal and social life. Approximately 15% of the world’s adult population has some degree of hearing loss and, out of these, the World Health Organization estimates that 460 million have a disabling hearing loss. Due to the increasing life expectancy of global population, this number is expected to double by 2050.
The global retail hearing care industry is highly attractive, driven by demographic factors and growing penetration. Alongside these secular drivers, two favorable trends are emerging: a generation of increasingly active and dynamic consumers and the rising role of digital. Amplifon is ideally positioned to benefit from the trends in this growing market.
How we make the difference
We strive to give each person the service they deserve.
