Mobile Gimbal Market

A gimbal is a pivoting support that allows an object to rotate around an axis. It can be mechanical or motorized, and it is utilized in stabilization systems to give camera operators the freedom to capture without shaking the camera.

The global entertainment and media industry has witnessed significant growth in the past few decades. The growth can be attributed to the increased production of various genres of video content on television, the big screen, and social media. Mobile phones are being used in the entertainment industry owing to the features offered by mobile manufacturers such as quality, various modes, filters, and others. There is a rise in the media and entertainment industry for instance, according to the report of the International Trade Administration, the U.S. Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry is the largest in the world at $660 billion (of the $2 trillion global market) in 2020.  The huge size of the media and entertainment industry coupled with the rising usage of mobile phones in the industry is expected to boost the mobile gimbal market size.

The sudden rise in the number of vloggers is expected to boost the growth of the mobile gimbal market since gimbals help vloggers to record steady and clear videos to post on their channels so they can present a good video and attract more viewers. There is a surge in the number of daily vloggers as many people opted for vlogging as a profession during COVID-19 as they have lost their jobs and have nothing to do. According to an article by vlogging pro over 44% of internet users watch vlogs every single month. The large audience is luring people to shift towards vlogging which is expected to boost the mobile gimbal market demand.

The amount of online content available today has soared over the years. This has been due to increased internet penetration and the impact of social media on the consumer. The increase in growth and rise in the average surfing time among the populous today has made platforms such as YouTube and Instagram very profitable and this has attracted a lot of competition among content creators. To overcome competition, content creators have started investing heavily in mobile and camera accessories such as mobile gimbals to provide higher-quality videos. This growing investment has driven the sales of mobile and mobile accessories and has indirectly influenced the growth of mobile gimbals in the global market.

The integrated camera stabilization being offered by smartphone manufacturers can hamper the growth of the mobile gimbal market since many smartphones are having inbuilt motion stabilization options. Smartphone cameras often utilize Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which reduces the blurriness in images and videos caused by irregular motion. (EIS) Electronic image stabilization is another technique used to compensate for hand jitters that manifest themselves in distracting video shakes during playback. Many smartphone apps have also been developed to overcome blurriness in images. Given the variety of cheaper options available over gimbals, the growth of the gimbal market can hamper.

The rise in expenditure on mobile phone accessories by the global population is expected to create a growth opportunity for the market. According to the report of the National Library of Medicine, U.S., mobile phone accessories sales have more than 74 billion U.S. dollars which are expected to cross 93 billion U.S. dollars in 2023. Such a rise in the mobile phone accessories market is expected to create an opportunity for the growth of the mobile gimbal market at a significant rate. The rise in the number of social media platforms fuels the demand for mobile accessories. For instance, according to an article by The Economic Times in 2019, the Popularity of the Chinese social media app, TikTok which lets people record short videos and post them online, has boosted sales of mobile phone tripods and accessories up to 10 times in a year.

E-commerce has boomed as a sales channel. International Telecommunication Union (ITU) estimates that approximately 4.9 billion people – or 63% of the world’s population were using the Internet in 2021. This represents an increase of 17% since 2019, with 782 million people estimated to have come online during that period.  Owing to the rising penetration of smartphone users and the increasing number of internet users the e-commerce platform is expected to boom as a sales channel. Along with this, there is a rise in the number of online sales channels like Amazon, Flipkart, and others. Such a rise in the e-commerce channel is expected to increase the sales of mobile gimbals during the forecast period since the rise in the number of internet users will result in a rising awareness of the product among consumers. Such rising awareness among consumers is expected to create an opportunity for the mobile gimbal market growth. 

The mobile gimbal market is segmented into stabilization type, price point, distribution channel, and region. By stabilization type, the market is bifurcated into 3-Axis Stabilization and 2-Axis Stabilization. By price point, the market is classified into a premium, mid-range, and low/economic. By distribution channel, the market is bifurcated into offline channels and online channels. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Mobile Gimbal Market by Stabilization Type

On the basis of stabilization type, the mobile gimbal market is further bifurcated into 3-Axis Stabilization and 2-Axis Stabilization.  The two-axis segment dominated the mobile gimbals market owing to its lightweight, longer-lasting battery, and cost-convenience. The two-axis gimbal is more suitable for the person who is new to videography and is looking for something to practice because humans have better control on lateral (left and right) hand movements. The segment is expected to witness higher growth owing to the rise in the number of content creators.

Mobile Gimbal Market by Price Point

On the basis of price-point, the mobile gimbal market is further segmented into premium, mid-range, and low/economic. The mid-range segment dominated the global mobile gimbal market and is expected to retain its dominance during the mobile gimbal market forecast period. The mobile gimbals from this segment are expected to have great growth opportunities mainly in developing economies such as China, India, and Brazil. These developing nations are characterized by the rising number of vloggers, and content creators coupled with rapid urbanization and rising disposable income. Moreover, the trend of content creation among the youth of developing nations will further boost the growth of the mobile gimbal industry.

Mobile Gimbal Market by Type

On the basis of type, the mobile gimbal market is segmented into foldable, wireless, and remote control.  The wireless remote control accounts for the largest mobile gimbal market share owing to the convenience being offered by it such as easy control and rest to the hand coupled with easy control of wireless remote control attracting consumers towards it. 

Mobile Gimbal Market by Distribution Channel

On the basis of distribution channels, the mobile gimbal market is categorized into offline and online distribution channels. The offline segment is further divided into hypermarkets, convenience stores, and mobile stores whereas the online segment is further segmented into direct and indirect distribution. The online segment is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast. The online sales channel has increased consumer reach owing to which it has evolved as a key source of revenue for many companies. Consumers are becoming aware of the many purchase patterns that exist in society as technology advances and internet services become more widely available.

COVID-19 has a significant impact on the market since it causes industries to close and humans to stop moving. Both the manufacturing and entertainment industries were in decline. Lockdown gave vloggers and independent filmmakers, who were the device's most popular users, the chance to shoot fresh ideas. In contrast, vloggers who shot outside reported lower consumption. So, it makes sense that the industry's performance throughout the pandemic was inconsistent.

North America will dominate the mobile gimbal market by the end of 2031.
