At Audio Collaborative 2022, we’ll be discussing a host of topics sweeping the contemporary audio tech landscape. Having already Addressed the Headwinds of the audio tech industry here, we’re now introducing another focal point – The Next Big Thing.
With tremendous growth across the audio tech market in recent years, The Next Big Thing poses some serious questions:
Tackling these questions from angles of premium, retail, and home cinema, this topic is set to be a comprehensive one.
The last few years have brought a unique set of circumstances, with the pandemic throwing societies and industries upside down overnight. These external conditions had a series of knock-on effects for the industry. Not only did major disruptions to supply chains force companies to recalibrate their catalogues, it also caused unforeseen shifts in consumer spending that show no sign of abating.
One of the most notable trends has been the consumer drive towards premium products. While this means good things for sustainability and high-end developers, it also alerts to a dry spell in spending. If consumer’s products are lasting longer, what will encourage them to rebuy? And how can companies drive replacements and upgrades?
Although there are challenges ahead for audio tech players, there’s also some considerable gains. With more consumer’s now acquainted with high-quality audio, there’s a strong chance many will develop a taste for high-end products. A new wave of spending may come in the form of collection expansions and upgrades – which is a welcome result for industry names.
Improved quality content from music hosting services is driving this further skyward. Apple Music and Amazon have all adopted lossless and spatial audio, two features that create an immersive and sonically complete listening experience. An emphasis on sound precision is coming from all angles, indicating this trend is here to stay.
There are lots of exciting discussions taking place at Audio Collaborative 2022. As well as investigating key market drivers and consumer spending triggers, we’ll also be sinking our teeth into a whole host of other relevant topics. Take a peek at what’s on the cards…
