This consumer loudspeaker market report provides insights into developments in bookshelf and floor-standing speakers, in-wall/in-ceiling speakers, home theatre speakers, computer aftermarket speakers and outdoor speakers. It provides analysis and forecasting for the global loudspeaker market, as well as delivering regional and per-country breakdowns.
From market updates for each category, to the impact of supply change challenges, as well as case studies and global spend on recorded music, this report provides detailed information that can add commercial value for any enterprise operating within the audio hardware industry.
23 million consumer loudspeakers were shipped worldwide in 2022, achieving a retail value of $5.5 billion, which represented 7.5% growth in value. However, shipments declined by 4.6%, which was due to consumers moving away from computer speakers and home theatre bundles, and choosing alternatives devices such as headphones and soundbars.
Consumers continue to spend on loudspeakers, initially triggered by the pandemic, as users were inclined to spend more on audio devices to benefit from better audio quality at home. Most professionals still predominantly work from home, extending this trend. Plus, the popularity of vinyl, as well as video and audio streaming services, is creating added traction for the loudspeaker market.
Over the longer term, Futuresource expects shipments to increase at 0.5% CAGR between 2023 and 2027, and retail value at 10% CAGR for the same forecasting period.
