The buyer power score for audio visual equipment rental is 2.9 out of 5, reflecting a medium level of buyer power. Buyers benefit from low price volatility, which protects them against strong fluctuations in price. According to IBISWorld analyst Pierre Dessertenne, although there are a high number of suppliers in the market, buyers' choice of suppliers is limited because audio visual equipment rental is a heavily localized service. Additionally, suppliers specialize in providing equipment rentals to particular facilities or localities, limiting a buyer's ability to choose a supplier best suited to their needs.

The lack of reasonable substitutes to audio visual equipment rental also negatively impacts buyer power. Unless a buyer owns audio visual equipment, there is no other alternative way to achieve the results of using audio visual equipment. While it is possible for buyers to purchase their own equipment and bring it to the facility, this is often impractical, continues Dessertenne. An average buyer, such as a business hosting an annual conference, would not use the equipment often enough to recoup the purchase price of the product. Additionally, it would be costly to transport heavy and bulky audio visual equipment from event to event, store the equipment and keep staff on payroll to set up and use the equipment. Buyers are advised to source their audio visual equipment from a supplier located close to the venue.

Buyers benefit primarily from low price volatility, which is the result of low volatility among demand drivers for the service, including the number of US businesses and corporate profit. Because demand changes gradually, prices function similarly as most suppliers price their rentals based on market conditions. Low volatility improves buyer power because it protects buyers from facing strong fluctuations in price. Although prices are rising, they are increasing gradually and predictably, allowing buyers to accurately plan and budget for their rental purchases. Overall, low price volatility balances against medium product specialization and the low availability of substitutes to give buyers a moderate level of power in the market.
