Summary: The need for deploying high-performance software audio codecs is more important than ever due to the demand for superior audio experiences across consumer electronics applications.Popular codec formats are often deployed across multiple products with varying processor architectures produced by one manufacturer.
System engineers thus face the challenge of identifying the right implementation for their applications.
The growing demand for superior audio experiences across consumer electronics applications has increased the need for deploying high-performance hardware and software audio codecs, especially in a wide range of smart electronics devices.An audio codec is a device or computer program that encodes or decodes an audio signal.
A software-based audio codec implements an algorithm that compresses and decompresses digital data streams.The aim of using an audio codec is to effectively reduce the size of an audio file without affecting the quality of the sound.
This helps in storing a high-quality audio signal using the minimum amount of space. Audio codec integrated circuits (ICs) are used in portable media devices and consumer applications such as mobile phones, tablets, automotive infotainment systems, home theater systems, PCs, and gaming systems.
The global market for audio codecs was valued at $REDACTED in 2019 and is forecast to reach $REDACTED by 2025, growing at a CAGR of REDACTED during the forecast period.Some of the major drivers for the growth of the audio codec market are the increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled connected devices, increasing penetration of mobile data traffic, and growing adoption of wearable and hearable devices.
Increasing demand for in-vehicle infotainment systems provides major growth opportunities in the market. However, saturation in the optical media industry will act as a restraint on the growth of the market.
In this report, the global audio codec market is segmented by component, application and geography.The audio codec market by component is categorized into hardware and software.
The software segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth in the audio codec market.Since software licensing is done at many stages for the same product, the segment accounts for more than REDACTED of the market.
Software codecs as compared to hardware can be upgraded faster and can be easily fragmented for encoding and decoding, so are economical and consume less space. These factors will result in the growth of software embedded devices and technologies.
The global audio codec market by application is categorized into mobile phones; home audio systems; PCs; tablets; headphones, headsets and wearable devices; televisions; gaming consoles; and automotive infotainment systems.The headphones, headsets and wearable devices segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the audio codec market during the forecast period of this report.
Due to rapid technological advancements in voice-user interface, and introduction of miniaturized wearable electronic devices for health monitoring, the demand for wearables such as smart watches, wireless headphones and headsets has increased considerably.Moreover, it is anticipated that the COVID-19 pandemic will have a significant impact on market growth.
The COVID-19 crisis has expanded the role of wearable technologies, especially in the healthcare sector.Also, new products from wearable companies such as Apple, Samsung and Fitbit have helped renew interest in popular categories such as smartwatches and hearables.
All these factors, along with devices’ ability to connect to the internet, will propel the growth of the wearables, headsets and headphones segment, which will result in increased demand for audio codecs.
