The growth is attributed to an increase in the use of infotainment systems, rapid technological advances, and a surge in demand for mobility services. However, the earbuds segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 29.5% from 2019 to 2026. This is due to the availability of these average-cost devices on both the online and physical retail shops.

The same segment is estimated to showcase the fastest CAGR of 19.9% from 2019 to 2026. The on-ear headphone segment has experienced a surge in growth due to its superior external noise cancellation capabilities over other types of headphones, and its portability compared to over-ear headphones.  

North America to Dominate the Market in Terms of Revenue in 2026 

By region, the market across North America held the largest market in terms of revenue in 2018, contributing to nearly one-third of the global hearables market, and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast timeframe. This is because the major players in the region provide advanced solutions. The LAMEA region, however, would portray the highest CAGR of 21.0% from 2019 to 2026. This is due to the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the increasing demand for wearables.
