According to the report, the growth of the global earphones and headphones market is heavily impacted by the broader trends in the smartphone and consumer electronics sector. Steady sales of smartphones, especially in China and India are likely to create demand for earphones and headphones during the assessment period. A majority of smartphone manufacturers offer earphones in the box, but headphones are only offered in more higher-end phones. This explains the reason why earphone demand is higher than headphones globally. Also, in the aftermarket, earphones are priced at a lesser cost as compared to headphones, which further influences consumer preference.

In addition to these factors, macroeconomic factors such as declining costs of consumer electronics, rising disposable income, and rise of a strong middle class in China and India are likely to create sustained demand for earphones and headphones during the forecast period. Popularity of free music streaming services has also created an incentive for consumers to buy earphones and headphones. However, availability of counterfeit products and fragmented nature of the industry is likely to create demand during the forecast period.
