Audio Equipment Market Analysis

The audio equipment market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. Increased adoption of cloud-based audio workstations and growing digitization of instruments are likely to drive market growth. Further, the increasing demand for HD and Ultra HD sound quality is driving the market growth.

  • Technological development in the music industry has unleashed the application of digital audio workstations (DAW) among artists for composing, recording, mixing, and mastering music. The faster adoption of cloud-based audio workstations and the growing digitization of instruments will likely enhance new trends over the forecast period.
  • The rising tendency of increasing expenditures on global festivals and music concerts is expected to propel the requirement for professional audio equipment. With an increasing number of trade shows, motion production and films, exhibitions, music concerts, and sports events, it is expected to increase demand for various innovative audio amplifiers. For instance, according to Billboard magazine, 32 million people go to at least one music festival in the United States every year.
  • The rise of audio equipment in automobiles is driving the market. A small collection of amplifiers and sound processors replaces the factory amp in a premium system without losing any of the vehicle's features or functionality. With an increase in the production of automobiles, the demand will increase effectively.
  • Design and complexity provide challenges for developing high-efficiency audio equipment as there are high interface integration issues with high complexity in designing mixing circuits, especially for audio mixers and amplifiers, which restrain the market growth.

Audio Equipment Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Audio Equipment Market according to our research experts:

Microphones Segment is Expected to Register the Fastest Growth

  • With nearly everything operating from home - TV productions, education, health and wellness, and everyday work, vendors are gauging the need for improved audio in these settings and, thus, are getting involved in introducing new products to the market.
  • The market is witnessing various expansion activities by vendors to enhance its geographical reach and cater to a broader customer base. For instance, in May 2022, Turtle Beach Corporation launched its Neat Microphones brand in Europe. The new line-up is headlined by King Bee II, the brand's high-performance XLR microphone.
  • Moreover, audio accessories also cater to the growing market demand. Miniature microphones and accessories are the products outlined for professional sound reproduction in installation, broadcast, film, and field applications. Players are investing in broadening their technology as it covers higher demand. For instance, in October 2022, Sony Electronics introduced a C-80 condenser microphone for studio recording. The uni-directional condenser microphone is ideal for vocal/voice recording, instrumental recording, vlogging, webcasting, and podcasting.
  • The market is witnessing the entrance of various new players, which will further drive its growth. For instance, in January 2022, Tesla applied for a new trademark to sell its audio equipment, such as microphones and headphones. The company has applied for its "TESLA" and "T" logo trademarks in the new audio equipment category.
