Speaker Membrane Market Drivers
Growing Use of Metal Diaphragm Technology (MDT): Growing use of metal diaphragm technology has led to the adoption of different metals as membrane materials for speakers. A lot of speaker manufacturers embed their speakers with metal cones, which provide optimum sound quality and flawless performance, even under a wide range of ambient temperatures.
Diaphragms are known for reducing listener fatigue and providing product reliability, particularly for high-end applications. They are finding increasing use in compression drivers with focused materials such as aluminum, titanium, and beryllium. Their fast transmission characteristics and low energy storage make metal diaphragms a preferred technology. These factors contribute to the overall growth of the speaker membrane market.
Advanced Technologies Expected to Influence Market Growth: Rapid innovations and increasing R&D infrastructure have influenced the speaker membrane market in the past few years, and will continue to do so in future. Manufacturers are focusing on production of customer-centric and customer-oriented products, by introducing advanced technologies. Products such as Alexa and Google Echo are gaining attractive responses from end users, and their demand is increasing with time. Consumers demand different varieties of AI-assisted speaker technologies, where speaker membrane material will play a crucial role and likely improve performance characteristics. Speaker membranes for tweeters and woofers will find considerable opportunities in such applications, and positively drive the growth of the speaker membrane market.
Growing Popularity in Smart Speakers: Consumer appetite for smart speakers is gaining significant traction, owing to all-important newly launched devices with improved feature sets and audio performance. Smart speakers such as Bluetooth speakers have seen large adoption in the past few years, accounting for a remarkable share in smart speaker technology and overall speaker industry. With different demands arising from end users using such devices, there is an ongoing trend to manufacture smart speakers and provide speaker membranes adhering to such requirements.
A wide range of Bluetooth speakers are available in the market. With the market being at a nascent stage, wide demographics has given rise to geo-specific trends in customization of speakers and development of speaker membranes, accordingly, boding well for the growth of the global speaker membrane market.
Increasing Use in Home Theater Applications: Home audio equipment trends have evolved over the past few years, with bring-home technology owing to products having consumer-centric features, size, and quality. Home audio consists of different speaker types covering mid-range speakers to full range speakers. Since a lot of the audience has been staying indoors for the past few months, there is a rising trend in installing home theater audios where speakers/residential audio equipment are required. Owing to these trends, there is increased production of speaker cones for such speakers, which find way into indoor applications. Such speakers are soft dome, water floating types, and have cabinet constructions and bass diaphragms.
