Rising trend among manufacturers towards designing thinner TVs with small to no bezels to improve product appeal has left insufficient room for the incorporation of built-in quality speakers. As the popularity of thin and bezel-less TVs rise, the demand for soundbars will proliferate.

Soundbars are prominently categorized into two types namely, active and passive. Active soundbars feature built-in amplifiers, whereas passive soundbars are conventional with need for separate receiver. Besides these, soundbars with Bluetooth connectivity are also available that allow consumers to play desired audio through tablets or smartphones. Lastly, customers can also opt for a subwoofer to make the sound system more efficient. Availability of an array of products at varying prices ranges from multiple manufacturers is positively impacting the industry growth.
