3D audio refers to a group of sound frequencies that manipulate the sound produced by stereo speakers, surround-speakers or headphones. It deals with the placement of sound virtually in the three dimensional space. The global 3D audio market is expected to witness high growth, as it is in its innovation stage along with high technological advancements worldwide. The 3D audio system enhances the sound and delivers mixed sound in 3 dimensional direction so that the user can identify the distance and direction from which the sound is coming.

The adoption of 3D audio technology by consumers and rising awareness for the implementation of 3D sound in various applications such as cinema, automobile, and gaming is driving growth of the market. High development in the music industry, continuous demand for audio hardware such as headphones for personal use, increasing demand for 3D audio hardware & software in the gaming industry, expanding cinema industry, and emerging trends such as requirement of 3D audio effects in augmented reality & virtual reality devices are driving growth of the 3D audio market, globally. Implementation issues of 3D audio in a virtual room and continuous hearing usage of the headphones might lead to hearing issues for the listener major restraints affecting growth of the global 3D audio market.
