The sudden rise in demand for 3D playlist and AR/VR in gaming industry as fostered the growth of the 3D audio market, and the market expected to continue its growth during the forecast period.

3D audio sound is an acoustic system used to provide sound in 3-dimensional space to the users. The 3D audio effect is a combination of different sound effects produced by 3D speaker arrays, stereo speakers, surround-sound speakers, and headphones. The 3D audio is largely influenced by several economic and non-economic factors prevailing across the world. These systems are installed in a wide range of applications, including mobile devices, gaming consoles, home theater systems, AR/VR-based audio systems, etc. Increasing demand for 3D audio technology in various applications across industries such as cinema, gaming, and VR concerts, owing to continuous advancements in audio technology, is a major factor driving the global 3D audio market growth. In addition, rising adoption of audio hardware devices such as headphones, Bluetooth devices, and loudspeakers for personal as well as commercial interest is fueling the target market growth. However, issues related to the implementation of 3D audio systems in virtual rooms and hearing problems caused by continuous use of headphones are the factors hindering the market growth.
