Home theaters brought in a total of US$7.7 billion last year. However, this market value is thought to be capable of growing by up to $5.7 billion more over the next 6 years. The sound bar sector may grow at the greatest rate over this period.
Deirdre O Donnell,

The home theater market was estimated to be worth US$7.7 billion in 2018. However, this value is now believed to grow at an annual compound rate (CAGR) of 8.3% until it reaches just over $13 billion in 2025. This area of technology was dominated by the "home theater in a box" (or HTIB) up until last year. This was due to the "superior cinematic experience" that this concept offered to interested buyers.

HTIBs typically consist of a media player (often physical) plus all the speakers, amps, remotes, cables and so on an OEM might deem necessary to build a home theater in one product listing. However, soundbars alone are now thought to be capable of the fastest growth by component in this market over the next 6 years. This is due to their compact nature and user-friendliness when it comes to installation.

Most sales (more than 80% in 2018) in the home theater market have historically been offline; however, that may be subject to change into the next decade. Furthermore, this market may become more informed and driven by wireless technology in the near future.

In addition, the ability to interact with and integrate personal devices may influence consumer demand more and more until 2025. The latest research shows that Yamaha, Sony, Samsung, Pioneer, Philips, Panasonic, LG, Bowers & Wilkins and Bose are currently among the biggest names in the home theater market.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
