Global Smartphone Audio Codecs Market to Grow at 4.4% During 2022-2027, Facilitated by Growing Popularity of Music Streaming Services

Published on Jun 02, 2020

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Smartphone Audio Codecs Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global smartphone audio codecs market reached a value of US$ 6.2 Billion in 2021. A smartphone audio codec assists in the compression and decompression of a digital audio data stream. It can be both an electronic device that features analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and digital-to-analog converter (DAC) used in sound cards to support audio in and audio out functions, or computer-based software that compresses or decompresses digital audio data as per the media audio coding format. A smartphone audio codec minimizes the number of bits of an audio file while retaining its accuracy and quality. This helps to reduce the need for storage space and bandwidth for transmission.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Smartphone Audio Codecs Market Trends:

The market is currently experiencing moderate growth on account of the growing popularity of music streaming services across the globe. Apart from this, boosting sales of smartphones and the rising mobile data traffic represents another factor influencing the demand for smartphone audio codecs positively. Furthermore, the industry recently witnessed the launch of aptX technology that helps reduce the size of an audio file before transmission without affecting its overall sound quality. Moreover, with the increasing adoption of Bluetooth earphones and headphones, leading key players are investing in research and development (R&D) projects to offer innovative and advanced features in their products, such as noise cancellation, 3D sound processing, parametric equalizers and dynamic range control. On account of these factors, the market value is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
