As smartphones and smart TVs are the novel end-users in wireless microphone market; demand for wireless audio systems ranging from entertainment and corporate sector to music and sporting events sustains to grow
Wireless technology with its innovative and efficient peculiarity has managed to find association with abundant modern consumer electronic devices. From device chargers to audio speakers, wires and cables are being suspended as wireless devices offers further mobility in operations along with economic advantage due to zero employment of wires. Similarly, wireless audio systems with constituents such as wireless microphone or cordless microphone has revolutionized the process of transmitting audio signals in various end-user verticals that includes television broadcasting, theatrical productions, sporting and corporate events, concerts, education sector, audio-video content production, and aerospace and defense sector. Developed at the center of several groundbreaking technologies and equipment such as RF equipment, radio transmitter, Wi-Fi, radio frequency band and radio frequency channel, the global wireless microphone market is leveraging the necessity of efficient audio solutions deemed utmost fundamental in the above mentioned verticals. Moreover, wireless microphone has found tremendous scope of employment in modern consumer electronic devices such as Bluetooth headsets and ear pods, smart televisions, advance gaming consoles and smart home devices. The market is also flooded with several innovations such as ‘plug-in transmitter’ and digital signal processing systems. For instance, a list of companies including AKG Acoustics, Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG, Nady Systems, Inc., and Zaxcom, Inc., offer a plug-in transmitter for wired microphones that can be plugged into the XLR output of the microphone and transmit to a prearranged standard receiver. Devoid of any wired connectivity, charging and low running time has always been an issue for wireless audio systems. As a consequence, market players are targeting customers with enhanced power as well as security features to carve out a niche for themselves. For example in 2019, Zaxcom, Inc., launched ‘ZMT3-X’ that is stated to be the company’s most enduring transmitter along with the longest running of up to 12 hours and standby of 48 hours on a single battery. Also, an encryption system to keep audio private is further incorporated to enhance transmission security. The company has played a vital role in revolutionizing the spectrum of wireless microphones with countless number of developments. In 2017, the company announced its ZMT3-Phantom 2 wireless transmitter that supports balanced phantom powered microphones and also compatible unbalanced lavalier microphones. The same year, it also launched ZMT3-HH, a handheld microphone that can also operate as a wireless transmitter. As majority of the wireless microphone systems rely on wide band FM modulation, intermodulation is a major problem while operating several systems in a confined location. As a consequence, digital hybrid systems and digital wireless microphone systems are emerging as a disruptive factor in global wireless microphone market. Instead of analogue FM transmission, digital systems use digital signal processing that assists in diminishing noise and other detrimental artifacts impacting audio quality. Such systems also enhance the security by offering encryption technology making it difficult for the casual 'scanner' listener to intercept transmission. Some of the enterprises manufacturing digital wireless microphone systems includes Akg Acoustic Gmbh, Audio-Technica Corporation, Sony Corporation and Sennheiser Electronic Gmbh C.
The global wireless microphone market size is evaluated to be $2.7 billion as of 2018. And with ample scope of application in flourishing industries such as television broadcasting and digital media production, along with lucrative innovations including digital systems, opportunities in the market is estimated to be progressing at a global CAGR of 8.32% during the forecast period of 2019-2025.
Smart devices necessitate wireless microphone for smarter execution of audio reliant maneuvers:
