Audio CODEC Market Outlook – 2027 

The global audio CODEC market size was valued at $11.44 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $14.12 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.1% from 2020 to 2027. Audio CODEC (coder/decoder) is a type of audio IC (integrated circuit) that encodes analog audio to digital signals and decodes digital signal back into analog. These are audio data convertors with both an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and a digital-to-analog converter (DAC). In addition, being data convertors, CODEC are used for encoding, decoding, compressing, and decompressing audio as well.

Audio CODECs transfer digital data using buses, which may include linear pulse-code modulation (linear PCM), inter-IC sound (I2S), AC-Link, inter-integrated circuit (I2C), and serial peripheral interface (SPI). Audio CODEC finds a wide range of applications in sectors such as entertainment, gaming, consumer electronics, and automotive.

The audio CODEC industry is expected to witness growth during the forecast period, owing to rise in demand for energy efficient audio system. In addition, increase in adoption of smartphones also propels the market growth. Moreover, emergence of IoT-enabled devices integrated with artificial intelligence is estimated to revolutionize the market. Hence, owing to the aforementioned factors, the audio CODEC market share is expected to witness a steep growth in the near future.

Surge in disposable income and number of product launches also propel the audio CODEC market growth. However, emergence of audio SoC (system on a chip) and growth in awareness regarding adverse effects of audio codec devices on health and environment hinder the audio CODEC market growth. Furthermore, rise in demand for on-board entertainment, rapid development & adoption of virtual reality (VR) technology, and growth in demand for gaming consoles globally provides lucrative opportunities for the market. 

The emergence of COVID-19 has declined growth rate of the audio CODEC market in 2020, and the market is estimated to witness slow growth till the end of 2021. Implementation of partial or complete lockdowns across various countries globally is the prime reason for this decline in growth rate. However, companies are committed to serve its customers by abiding rules and regulations laid by governments in their respective regions.
