A portable media player is a small machine that can store and play digital music and videos, as well as display digital photographs. Portable media players are available in a wide range of shapes and memory sizes. These media players are popular among consumers because they provide high audio-video quality, durability, a large storage capacity, and portability.
The pandemic's outbreak had a positive impact on the portable media player market. As people were forced to stay indoors due to lockdowns, streaming media players such as Apple TV, Amazon, and Netflix experienced rapid growth in many countries. As a result, consumer demand for portable media players increased.
The growing demand for compact devices with high durability is expected to drive the portable media player market's recovery and growth. Also, technological developments are enabling the integration of advanced features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and USB. As a result of these factors, the portable media player market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period.
Based on the media type, the market is bifurcated into audio and video. Portable audio player is expected to be the larger segment of the market during the forecast period owing to the early developments in music recording technology and the rise in demand for music playing devices which have been higher than those for video devices. Furthermore, given the rise of OTT platforms and consumers' preference for video entertainment, the video segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.
Based on the distribution channel type, the market is classified as offline and online. Offline channel is likely to remain the dominant segment during the forecast period. Some of the factors behind the popularity of this channel type is that customers get a variety of products from several manufacturers, get to make real-time purchase decisions, and get free demonstrations, and guidance from sales people on the spot. On the other hand, the rising population and increasing number of smartphone users are driving the online distribution channel for portable media players.
In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for portable media players over the forecast period. Product market growth in the region is being driven by rising adoption of smart-connecting devices and the growing entertainment and media industry.
