The report studies the unstructured and structured database to visualize and provide insights based on correlation, hidden patterns, the market’s changing trends, and more. For instance, in April 2022, Boya launched BY-CM6, a USB condenser microphone for capturing crystal-clear voice and delivering detailed vocal recordings. This microphone meets the needs of short video creators, vloggers, and others. Furthermore, it can be plugged in and used immediately without additional software or hardware. This can be used for recording, vlogs, game live streaming, music recording, and online conference.
Supply Chain Disruptions and Shutdown of Manufacturing Plants Hampered Market Growth in COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic caused various challenges to global supply networks. Several countrywide lockdowns continue to impede or even halt the movement of raw materials and completed goods, hampering manufacturing. However, the pandemic has not necessarily introduced new supply chain issues. It revealed previously unknown vulnerabilities in several sectors, and many companies have suffered worker shortages and losses due to COVID-19. However, it has expedited and exacerbated pre-existing supply chain issues.
Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) surveyed 200 supply chain professionals in late 2020 and stated that 72% of the respondents responded COVID-19 had a negative effect on their business. All automotive and nearly 97% of industrial products companies stated the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on them.
The decreased demand for consumer electronic devices owing to lockdown measures had increased the concerns among manufacturers and suppliers.
In March and April 2020, the IPC surveyed the electronics suppliers and manufacturers to understand the impact of COVID-19 on business. 43% of the respondents stated they are highly concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on their business.
Further, 49% of the respondents are somewhat concerned about the effect of COVID-19. The constant decline in demand and supply chain disruptions are projected to negatively impact the market in the short term.
Manufacturing industries in several countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, and India have seen an unprecedented decline as a result of a stagnant economy and sudden disruption in the international supply chain, resulting in a significant loss to the global market, particularly in 2020.

Inadequate Availability of Raw Materials Might Hinder Growing Market Growth
Poor raw material availability to meet microphone production demand is restraining the market growth. Voice coil, cable, and magnets are some raw materials for making these microphones. Shortage of these materials might hamper the production process in the market.
Growing Adoption of Handheld Microphones to Surge the Product Demand
Based on type, the market is segmented into handheld, bodypack, and tabletop.
Among these, the handheld segment captured the highest market share of around 47.7% in 2021. Bodypack microphones are expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 12.4% over the forecast period, as they are small in size, easy to carry, and have a headset microphone plugged into them. The popularity of bodypack microphones is significantly increasing among end-users. One of the significant advantages of these microphones is the ability to maintain a consistent distance between the speaker and the microphone. For example, Shure, Inc. offers a premier bodypack transmitter. With the transmitter’s enhanced RF performance, high-density mode, wide-tuning, and encryption, the micro bodypack enables professional-quality wireless digital audio.
Hassle-Free Setup Drives the 2.4 GHz Segment
Based on frequency, the market is categorized into ultra-high frequency, very high frequency, 2.4 GHz, and others.
Among these, the 2.4 GHz segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 9.7% during the forecast period, as it provides limited channel bandwidth and a hassle-free setup. 2.4 GHz frequency provides a higher quality audio signal than the VHF and UHF. The main advantage of 2.4 GHz for wireless systems is that it is license-free worldwide and can be used in multiple countries and regions. These are some of the factors that would drive the adoption of 2.4 GHz wireless frequency systems.
