The global earphones and headphones market size is estimated to reach USD 163.83 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 12.6% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The rise in earphones & headphones industry is yoked to the growth of tablets, smartphones and other multimedia devices such as IPod or MP3 players. All the aforementioned devices come with a basic earphone; however, the expanded menu of music streaming services, video apps available today, encourage customers to replace existing products with high-quality products. There exists an array of earphones & headphones in the market today, partly since we are living in a time where entertainment is portable, which can be attributed to the advent of portable multi-media devices. 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. For instance, in 2019, Sony Corporation introduced new earbuds WF-1000XM3, which uses an HD noise canceling QN1e chip processer, and Apple, Inc. launched second generation Airpods with an H1 chip for a similar kind of function. Noise cancelling feature is available with many earphones & headphones and uses AI to select the most effective noise cancelling mode by analyzing the ambient sound components.
