Recent technological advancements have resulted in the development of lightweight earphones & headphones, and wireless earbuds, which is expected to impact earphones & headphones market growth favorably.

In the coming years the wireless segment is expected to witness exponential growth. The growth can be attributed to incorporation of multiple wireless technologies such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Artificial Intelligence (AI), SKAA, and Augmented Reality (AR) from manufacturers. Also, the integration of AI & AR in earphone and headphone provided manufacturers the advantage to introduce new products with various features. Several brands in the market have introduced features like noise cancellation, gesture recognition, adaptive hearing in their products, which are based on artificial intelligence & augmented reality technology. These factors are expected to positively impact the growth of the market.

Companies like Sony Corporation, GN Store Nord A/S (Jabra), Bose Corporation, and others provide a personalized application to configure the earbuds according to individual preferences of listening to music, fitness tracking, and more.
