Evolution of Technology Application in the Music Industry to Bolster the Demand for Digital Audio Workstations

Digital audio workstations accounted for a market value of US$ 8.2 billion in 2018 and are expected to grow at a promising CAGR of 7.9% across the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. As computers' capabilities evolved, their ability to perform the necessary amount of data storage and transfer to allow real-time data acquisition made them an attractive platform for the recording and mixing of sound and music. The traditional method to record, edit, and playback sound files were on stereo systems. However, with advancements in technology, it has become possible to record multiple channels of audio at reasonable sample rates and to store, process, mix, and playback more complicated sessions. The low cost of small computers and the ability to add hardware to the system have allowed the development of recording hardware and software, which started the move that eventually created the modern digital audio workstation (DAW). DAWs allow non-destructive overdubbing and punching-in as tracks are recorded. Such a digital system enables a record of as many tracks as allowed by the software, and additional takes are no longer required after deleting old ones. With rapidly growing advancements, digital audio workstations are projected to experience significant adoption across the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Android Operating System Referred to as Most Lucrative Platform in the Digital Audio Workstation Market

The Android operating system is now the world's most commonly used platform and is used by many different smart device manufacturers. Android is partly an open-source platform. It is preferable as the interface and basic features of Android are customizable from top to bottom. Prior to this, iOS was the most preferred and lucrative platform for software developers, so there was a tendency for new applications to appear on iOS first. However, as Android's market share is growing, this has started to change as developers are targeting the Android platform first. As a result, DAW manufacturers are steadily aiming to build their devices on such platforms to cater to a larger share of the targeted audience.
