The Home Audio Equipment industry continued to rake in growth in terms of both volume and value sales amid the economic meltdown, driven by rocketing sales of new technologies such as Blu-ray and a resurge in the Home-Theatre-in-a-Box (HTiB) market. Consumer electronics such as mp3 players, computers, Blu-ray players and video games provide economic sources of entertainment for families stressed by uncertainties with job and career during the economic meltdown. In fact, several electronic devices have become an almost essential part of general living, particularly in the developed world. Home audio equipment represents a significant market in the worldwide consumer electronics industry. In the developed countries, home audio equipment is almost a mature market with almost every household owning an equipment. Increasing levels of disposable income and consumer acceptance of innovative technology developments is helping expand the market for electronic products, especially digital consumer electronic goods. The trend towards faster Internet connectivity, Internet-exclusive entertainment, high-speed data streaming, and deployment of highly sophisticated equipment for storing music is expected to lead to a spurt in innovations in portable home audio equipment as stated by the new market research report on Home Audio Equipment.
Quick and high price deflation forms an integral feature of the consumer electronics industry. As a result, new innovative products are priced at higher price to skim the market and maximize profit. Products with high appeal, aesthetic design and innovative features win the race in the highly competitive audio equipment market. Within the global Home audio equipment market, Home Theater-in-a-Box represents the fastest growing segment in terms of both volume and value sales. Suppliers and manufacturers of HTiB systems are striving to expand market penetration by making systems less visually intrusive and easy to use. Home radios comprise the smallest segment in terms of value sales. Demand for digital radios is on rise in several Asian markets, including Korea, Australia, Singapore, and Taiwan, propelled largely by growing marketing and promotional activities. Asia-Pacific market for Home Radios is projected to reach US$169 million by 2015.
Consumer electronics in general and home audio equipment in particular are the most competitive markets. Major players profiled in the report include Akai, Dolby Laboratories Inc, DTS Inc, Kenwood Corporation, Philips Electronics, LG Electronics, Panasonic Corporation, Onkyo Corporation, Pioneer Corporation, Sharp Corporation, Sony Corporation, among others.
