Dublin, Oct. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Smartphone Audio Codecs Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global smartphone audio codecs market has witnessed remarkable growth, reaching a valuation of US$ 6.5 billion in 2022. Industry experts anticipate continued expansion, projecting the market to reach US$ 8.4 billion by 2028, with a notable Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.3% during the forecast period of 2023-2028.

Understanding Audio Codecs

Audio codecs, also known as sound codecs, play a crucial role in compressing and decompressing audio data streams to reduce bit rates and storage requirements. These codecs encompass both hardware and software components, incorporating signal routing, mixing channels, microphone and line inputs, digital-to-analog converters (DAC), and analog-to-digital converters (ADC), facilitating smoother audio transmissions. Widely used audio codec formats today include MP3, advanced audio coding (AAC), Apple lossless audio code (ALAC), free lossless audio codec (FLAC), and Windows media audio (WMA).


Market Drivers

The surge in smartphone sales, coupled with escalating mobile data traffic, serves as a pivotal factor driving the global smartphone audio codecs market. The growing popularity of music streaming services is also propelling demand for audio codecs worldwide. Additionally, as Bluetooth earphones and headphones gain widespread adoption, leading manufacturers are focusing on incorporating innovative features such as parametric equalizers, dynamic range control, noise cancellation, and 3D sound processing to expand their consumer base.

Furthermore, the industry has recently witnessed the introduction of aptX technology, capable of wirelessly transmitting 24-bit high-resolution audio. This technology reduces audio file sizes before transmission without compromising sound quality, fostering a positive market outlook for future growth.
