Market Synopsis


The global consumer audio market is estimated to reach USD 138 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period of 2020–2026.


Consumer audio comprises audio electronics intended for home entertainment use, such as shelf stereos, music centers, and surround sound receivers.These equipment are designed to have pleasing looks, and they are meant to sound just pleasing. However, these consumer equipment can seldom fulfill the needs of a serious music producer, audiophile and anyone who is seriously interested in the sound quality rather than looks. The ever-increasing demand from consumers for new features, better quality and lower prices put a constant strain on audio and electronics manufacturers to differentiate on cost efficiency, shorter time to market and outstanding performance. Some of the factors fueling the growth of the global consumer audio market include rising demand for infotainment devices, increasing adoption of advanced wireless audio devices, and proliferation of connected homes. Moreover, increasing demand for home theaters and LCDs is expected to create opportunities in the global market. However, bandwidth constraints and health concerns of audio systems might hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
