The Retail Market for Audio Equipment
Driven by growth in disposable income and housing, the Retail Market for Audio Equipment is expected to expand over the five years to 2016. New technologies have simultaneously bolstered and competed with audio equipment retailers. On one hand, audio equipment quality has improved, and such equipment is increasingly compatible with other electronics. On the other hand, consumer electronics, cars and other products have improved audio systems built in, making audio equipment an increasingly discretionary purchase. Most notably, technology has brought about a rise in e-commerce and its prevalence has led to an influx of audio equipment e-tailers. Furthering profit growth, disposable income and e-commerce sales are projected to continue rising over the next five years.
