Strategic collaborations between manufacturers and musical artists have also benefited the sound reinforcement market significantly. The sound reinforcement market in Europe is expected to reach $2.24 million by 2024.  A major reason for the increased growth of the sound reinforcement market is the replacement of legacy pro AV systems and other systems.

Increasing Trend for Strategic Partnerships with Artists

The increasing trend of strategic partnerships with artists is playing a pivotal role in the development of the audio equipment market. These partnerships have proved successful as they help to promote stars, artists or performers as brand ambassadors. For instance, Ed Sheeran use of Sennheiser’s microphones and other products have given the brand an edge owing to the fact that it is associated with a famous rockstar. Therefore, the association of a mega rock or pop star with any musical company brand is sufficient to promote or increase visibility worldwide.

Hence, vendors in the market are looking forward to capitalizing upon strategic partnering opportunities and establishing the presence as one-stop solution providers for sound reinforcement systems.  Audio-Technica, Bose, Harman International, MUSIC Group, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, and Yamaha are some of the leading vendors in the European sound reinforcement market.
