3D Audio Market By Product Type (Speakers, Headphones, Microphones), By End-Use (Personal, Commercial), By Sales Channel (Offline, Online) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Increasing Adoption across the Gaming Industry to Drive the 3D Audio Market Growth

3D audio market was valued at US$ 3.45 Bn in 2017 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The rise of digital music has substantially changed the ways in which music is consumed today. The devices used to record and play these sounds too have undergone a transformation, with the audio technology in a continuous flux of changing listening experiences. 3D audio in this context has changed the landscape of a video by attaching the sound to a certain object. One of the most prominent factors aiding the 3D audio market growth is improvement in consumer acceptance of 3D audio. This factor is further helped by decline in product prices. Therefore, with rising disposable income across various countries such as China, India and Brazil among others, people are further expected to increase their spending on personal entertainment. Moreover, increasing adoption of 3D audio in the gaming industry is another major factor contributing to the 3D audio market growth. Recent trends have revealed that game developing companies are upgrading their sound engines from 2D audio to 3D audio. However, the absence of any universal and standard format or configuration has impacted the large scale proliferation of this technology negatively.
