Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Smart Headphones Market 2016-2020

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aviv, Apple, AKG Acoustics, Audio-Technica, Bose, Creative Technology, Glow, Intel, JBL, LG, Logitech International, Molami, Panasonic, Plantronics, Pioneer, Shure, Sennheiser, and SkullCandy.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is playing a big role in boosting market growth is the improved noise cancellation mechanism. As of 2015, most headsets have the noise-cancelling feature. They use a negative feedback loop to eliminate the unwanted ambient sound. Headphone manufacturers use different technologies to eliminate or reduce noise, providing users with an optimal sound experience.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the popularity of sports headphones. The biometric sports tracking headphones have grown in prominence since their inception. These headphones have the features of tracking the heart rate, distance covered, and calories burnt. Despite there being no shortage of heart rate monitors in the market, for many users, headphones are part of their training gear. Also, adding a smart heartrate sensor only enhances the application of these headphones.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the health risk associated with continued use.
