Noise Cancelling Headphones Market Research, 2031

The global noise cancelling headphones market was valued at $13.1 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $45.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 13.2% from 2021 to 2031.

Active noise control is used in noise cancelling headphones and in noise cancelling earbuds to decrease undesired background noise. This differs from passive headphones, which utilize methods like soundproofing if they desire to reduce background noise. It is possible to listen to audio content without turning up the volume too loudly owing to noise cancellation. In a noisy environment, like an airplane, it can also aid in improving sleep. Noise cancelling headphones in the aviation environment boost the signal-to-noise ratio substantially more than passive noise-attenuating headphones or no headphones, making it easier to hear essential messages like safety precautions. Noise cancelling headphones can enhance listening to the point where they entirely eliminate the effect of a simultaneously distracting activity.

Noise Cancelling Headphones Market

The significant rise in smart device usage based on rapid digitization has increased demand for noise-canceling headphones. Sales of noise-canceling headphones are anticipated to be primarily driven by rising millennial demand during the forecast period. Other aspects that support the use of soundproof headphones globally include growing standards of living, increasing per capita disposable income, and rising demand for high-quality audio equipment. The markets for noise canceling headphones with microphones and noise-canceling headphones for sleeping are expected to rise rapidly during the forecast period. On-ear headphones are likely to see a higher increase in demand than adaptive noise cancelling headphones.

The demand for noise-canceling headphones is rising rapidly due to the increasing use of smartphones and connected mobile phones. Active noise cancelling headphones are becoming less popular around the world as vendors add more clever features to their devices. In developing nations, there is a significant need for entry-level smart products, which is now met by local producers. The removal of the headphone jack is a result of the trend among manufacturers to make smartphones slimmer and thinner. This is encouraging consumers to purchase cutting-edge headphones with distinctive features, which will provide noise cancelling headphones market opportunity during the forecast period.

The global noise cancelling headphones market is expected to witness notable growth during the forecast period, owing to an increase in demand for technological advancements and miniaturization of electronic components. Moreover, increasing adoption of wireless headphones during workouts is primarily expected to drive the global noise cancelling headphones market. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of wireless noise cancelling headphones is yet another consequence of the smartphone revolution.

However, the increasing availability of counterfeit products may pose challenges to the global noise cancelling headphones market growth during the forecast period. The increase in penetration of smart headphones is yet another consequence of the wearable technology revolution of over-ear and on-ear noise cancelling headphones. Thus, it will provide a lucrative opportunity to expand the noise cancelling headphones market during the forecast period.
