The audio and video equipment market equips homes, businesses and schools with products needed to inform, educate and entertain. From home theaters, to car stereos and business presentation equipment, this industry creates the equipment that has become an important part of most people's lives.
Consumer desire to own mobile phones that both take pictures and shoot video - instead of buying seperate audio visual devices - may account for some of the lowered sales during the economic crisis.
The market has since experienced a rebound, with revenue increasing in 2010. It is expected to increase further in 2011 as the home cinema industry and auto/auto manufacturing industries experience strong growth.
