Professional Portable Audio System Market Research, 2031

The global professional portable audio system market was valued at $2.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $5.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2022 to 2031.

Professional portable audio systems are audio systems whose locations can be changed according to requirements since its components can be separated and their positions shifted. They are primarily used in the music industry, industry gatherings, commercial complexes, and for professional purposes such as public functions and gatherings. Professional portable audio systems are premium-quality, studio-grade systems that produce clear & high-quality sound. Professional portable audio systems are made-of several parts such as mixers, power amplifiers, speakers, and microphones. These systems are either connected wirelessly or in a wired manner, according to requirement.

The professional portable audio system industry is driven by its increasing use in corporate and industrial sector during the corporate events. Corporate events are an important part of corporate culture and are expected to continue in the future, despite the ups-and-downs witnessed periodically by different industries. These events are held for numerous reasons, such as annual gatherings, team celebrations, charitable causes, and business profitability. In these events, performers, musicians, and singers use professional-grade portable audio systems for their performances, including songs and dance. They are an important part of corporate culture and are expected to continue in the future, despite the ups-and-downs witnessed periodically by industries.

Further, the market is also dependent upon the film, television, video-on-demand, and music industry. These audio systems are required in the music events and are most commonly used to play popular songs and music. Many of these songs and music are originally created and released as part of films, TV series, or music albums. They are then played in these music events either as originally developed, or different types of remixed versions. All these end industries are performing well in the market and growing consistently. For instance, the global music industry’s annual revenue increased 18.5% y/y in 2021 to $25.9 billion. The market is also highly driven by the access to rented professional portable audio systems. The purchase of professional portable audio systems is a costly investment. They require a high level of expertise and careful calibration of equipment, which adds to the cost of manufacturing and in-turn, increases the price of the equipment.

Not all groups or bands which play at corporate and other events can afford to purchase the music systems required for the purpose. Further, this cost factor is exacerbated as the music systems are not required on a daily basis. Hence, the market is boosted by the availability of renting the equipment. On the other hand, the difficulty in maintaining and repairing the equipment restrains the market. Professional portable audio system equipment are highly calibrated equipment, difficult to manufacture, and require extensive level of expertise to be developed to perfection. They are also complex systems. The professional portable audio system market lacks the adequate amount of required skilled workforce to repair these equipment. This in-turn not only makes the repairing difficult, however also increases its cost for the end user of the equipment.

Meanwhile, the digitalization of the music industry and the associated penetration of technology are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market players during the forecast period. The digitalization of music industry and the associated penetration of technology has increased the requirement to create noise- and error-proof audio mixes for a wide range of purposes such as music recordings and advertisements, through the music events. The same has further increased the importance of factors such as HD and ultra HD sound quality on a variety of connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Analyst Review

Technological developments play an important role in the professional portable audio system market. Many new technologies are being incorporated into the portable professional-grade audio systems, such as powered speakers, wireless connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth LE, HD sound, and ultra HD sound. This is likely to have significant impact on the market. For instance, powered speaker systems are speakers that include power amplifiers in them, so the customer does not need to purchase the amplifier separately. This can alter the market growth by reducing the requirement of power amplifiers, while simultaneously increasing the price of the speaker system. Similarly, an impact is expected on the setup cost as wireless connectivity becomes more common in the professional portable audio systems, making cabling systems redundant. Furthermore, with remote working environments and increasing capabilities of mixing consoles, it became important to establish a protocol to transport mixing console’s audio work over IP. This standard has been codified under AES67 to insure and simplify connectivity between different equipment manufacturers.

Many of these technological developments can be expected to first have an effect on the more developed and mature markets of North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, before making their way further to Africa and other regions. However, the markets are expected to witness this transition in technology during the forecast period of the study.
