LONDON – The market for audio equipment is seeing robust growth as an increasing number of consumers tend to adopt streaming audio. Around 66% of US broadband households use a streaming audio service. The market for streaming audio services is being driven by a set of drivers such as the ongoing shift to mobile and wireless networks; the ease of installation, setup, and relocation for wireless devices; increased affordability of high-fidelity audio, among others. However, the sector’s growth is being hindered by the investment in legacy products and long replacement cycles, as well as low-capacity broadband and device competition.

AT&T, Apple, Beats, Spotify, Bose, Bluetooth SIG, Google, Boss Audio, Deezer, Ericsson, ClearView, Google, Jawbone, NTNE, Pandora, Marantz, Rdio, Sonos, and Verizon are the leading companies involved in the market.
