The global home entertainment device market is set to grow at a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of over 6 % through the forecast period (2019-2029), according to a new Fact.MR report.

Further, the frequent development of new, but related technologies and innovative products, coupled with a decline in the prices of home entertainment devices are also being considered as drivers of growth for the worldwide market.

While audio devices are the fastest-growing segment in home entertainment devices, with a CAGR of more than 7 %, video devices continue to hold a substantially larger volume in market share and are expected to continue their dominance through the forecast period, growing 1.8X.
