In addition, speakers' capacity for wireless communication is currently a significant market-driving force. This pattern has helped the creation of smart speakers. For instance, the Yamaha ATS-2090 offers a wireless smart soundbar that can be connected to both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Improved wireless networking features have recently been implemented into various speakers, including sound bars, portable docking speakers, and wall units. The improved audio quality hence promotes a rise in demand for sophisticated speakers. High-end home theatre systems are also becoming more popular due to changing consumer lifestyles and their increased need for entertainment. Subwoofer systems, in-wall speakers, and sound bars could all benefit, creating a new market.
