The global smartphone audio codecs market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.

An audio codec, also known as a sound codec, helps in the compression and decompression of an audio data stream to minimize the bit rate and storage space. It can be both a combination of both hardware and software components. It comprises signal routing and mixing channels, microphone and line inputs, digital-to-analog converters (DAC), and analog-to-digital converters (ADC), which make audio transmissions easier. At present, some of the most widely used audio codec formats include MP3, advanced audio coding (AAC), Apple lossless audio code (ALAC), free lossless audio codec (FLAC) and windows media audio (WMA).

The boosting sales of smartphones, in confluence with the increasing mobile data traffic, represents one of the key factors driving the global smartphone audio codecs market growth. In addition to this, the growing popularity of music streaming services is escalating the demand for audio codecs around the world. Apart from this, owing to the rising adoption of Bluetooth earphones and headphones, the leading manufacturers are focusing on offering innovative and advanced features in their products, such as parametric equalizers, dynamic range control, noise cancellation and 3D sound processing, for expanding their consumer base. Furthermore, the industry recently witnessed the introduction of aptX technology that is capable of wirelessly transmitting 24-bit high-resolution audio. It aids in reducing the audio’s file size before transmission without affecting its overall sound quality. These innovations are expected to create a positive outlook for the market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global smartphone audio codecs market to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
