U.S. portable Bluetooth speaker market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030 

Wi-Fi-based Bluetooth speakers are becoming more popular and the number of connected devices is expanding, which has increased the demand for wireless access in households. In addition, speaker capacity for wireless communication is boosting the global portable bluetooth speaker market demand. This trend has aided in the creation of smart speakers. Improved wireless networking features have recently been implemented into various speakers, including sound bars, portable docking speakers, and wall units. The improved audio quality has boosted the demand for advanced speakers. High-end home theatre systems are also becoming more popular due to changing consumer lifestyles and their increased need for entertainment. This is projected to steer the demand for subwoofer systems, in-wall speaker, and sound bars.

Prominent companies have been focusing on product quality and technology to increase sales. For instance, in June 2023, Skullcandy unveiled a broad selection of portable speakers in different sizes including the most recent Bluetooth technology. Common features among the Ounce, Kilo, Terrain Mini, Terrain XL, and Terrain models include IPX7 water resistance and USB Type-C charging. The price of these speakers varies based on their size, but they are available in the same color variations. The Kilo is distinguished as a solid, durable construction to accompany its anticipated 24-hour battery life. On the other hand, the Terrain and Ounce series are intended to provide a battery life of 14 to 18 hours per charge.

There is a growing popularity of music apps and streaming services in the U.S. For instance, as reported by Forbes Homes, the music streaming scene in the U.S. has undergone a remarkable evolution in the past decade. As of January 2024, the country boasted an impressive count of 90 million paid music streaming subscribers. This figure is in sharp contrast with the situation in the first half of 2014, where there were merely 7.9 million users of music streaming services. This growing popularity has had a considerable impact on the demand for compatible devices like portable bluetooth speakers to enhance the listening experience. The continuous enhancements in sound quality and technical features of bluetooth speakers have contributed to a more immersive and satisfying listening experience for users.

The demand for portable bluetooth speaker in the U.S. is also fueled by consumers seeking location-specific devices that adapt to their surroundings and enhance the outdoor atmosphere at picnics, beach vacations, and pool parties, among others. In February 2023, HARMAN International’s JBL brand launched its Pulse 5 portable speaker in the U.S. The product offers immersive 360° lighting synchronized with music, which is customizable through the app. Its audio features include a 30 W woofer and 10 W tweeter, covering 58 Hz to 20 kHz.
