The Headphone Manufacturing industry has been negatively affected by imports from Asia over the five years to 2017, which satisfy the majority of domestic demand for headphones. The damage inflicted by imports has been slightly mitigated as the industry has found relief in growing retail demand for premium headphones. Additionally, the rising direct and hidden costs of producing in China have incentivized many small- to medium-sized companies that design and market headphones to source their products from the United States.

IBISWorld expects the Headphone Manufacturing industry will continue to encounter stiff import competition over the next five years, leading to slight revenue loss.
