Global Audio CODEC Market to Reach US$ 9.1 Billion by 2032, Propelled by the Widespread Adoption of Digital Audio Formats

May 18, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Audio CODEC Market Report by Function (With DSP, Without DSP), Component (Hardware, Software), End Use (Computer, Phones, Tablets, Over-Ear Headphones, TWS, Home Entertainment, Commercial, Automotive, Portable, Smart Home, IoT, Wearable, AR/VR), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global audio CODEC market size reached US$ 6.6 Billion in 2023. An audio coder-decoder (CODEC) is a technology for encoding and decoding digital audio signals. It is responsible for compressing audio data for efficient storage or transmission and then decompressing it for playback or processing. An audio CODEC aims to minimize the size of audio files while maintaining acceptable audio quality. An audio CODEC employs various algorithms to achieve compression and decompression. This algorithm analyzes the audio signal, removes redundancies, and represents the data in a more efficiently. There are two main types of audio CODECs, such as lossless and lossy. Lossless CODEC preserves all the original audio data without any loss in quality. It achieves compression by removing redundant information and utilizing advanced mathematical techniques. Lossless CODEC is commonly used in professional audio applications where audio quality is of utmost importance and file size reduction is secondary.

Global Audio CODEC Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the widespread adoption of digital audio formats. Additionally, the rise of streaming services has also contributed to the growth of the audio CODEC market. Audio CODECs that offer a balance between compression efficiency and audio fidelity are in high demand, enabling streaming services to provide optimal audio experiences to their users. With the increasing popularity of music and video streaming platforms, efficient audio CODECs are essential for delivering high-quality audio over limited bandwidth connections. Consequently, the growing demand for high-quality audio experiences is increasing the adoption of advanced audio CODECs. In addition, consumers are increasingly seeking immersive and high-fidelity audio in various applications, including home entertainment, gaming, virtual reality, and automotive systems. This demand for enhanced audio quality pushes the development of CODECs that can deliver superior sound reproduction, spatial audio, and improved dynamic range. Furthermore, the advancements in audio compression technologies play a significant role in driving the audio CODEC market. As technology evolves, new and improved compression algorithms are developed, offering higher compression levels while maintaining acceptable audio quality. These advancements enable audio delivery content in various applications with reduced bandwidth and storage requirements. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 9.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.43% during 2024-2032.
